    Sorry but I already found the document you reference and I also hae opened the wire compartment. The problem with the document is that it is decscribing a 110 volt connection and not a 240. I was looking for the specifc wire connections for each wire in the cable..

    Thanks for your help,

Fahrenheat ffh1614 wall heater gets bright orange and way too hot

You need to check the breakers or the actual power because I see the 1614 model as being 240 Volts. Unless you can change that rating inside the unit itself and it has been set to 120 Volts. IT appears from the wiring code you listed that the building wires are 120 volts. However a meter would be the definitive answer. When you are running 240 or higher (double phase) Black and Red are hot and white is neutral If it is 110 then black is hot and white is neutral. Since I cannot tell from the description posted whether the red is source or inside the heater, you really need a volt meter.

I have a intermatic ET1125C I have 30 amp fused load coming in,how EXACTLY do I wire it in and TWO independent outs for load 1 load 2 ? The diagrams are confusing I need to know color wire to #1-6 on the...

Intermatic ET1125 240Volt, two independent circuit Wiring absolutely shows on following link: Wire colors can vary. 240Volt line can be black-white, or red-white, or black-black. Non-code wiring can be white-white.

I have no idea what color wires you have. Or if circuit tests for 240V.
Include a photograph of your wiring, and list showing voltage on each wire, and color of each wire, and description where each wire comes from.
You should have two Hot wires L1 L2 coming from 30 amp breaker.
And 2 wires going to each Load (light, fan, motor).
Wire size should be at least 10 gauge.

Turn power ON, stand on dry boards, tape tester leads to wood sticks, and test each wire to bare ground.
240Volt circuit will have two hot wires.

I need a wiring diagram for hayward pool filter model K48m2n11b3

Are you trying to wire a pool pump?
I found manuals at the Haywood site > I saw nothing for K48m2n11b or anything close to that number

But lets work on the problem and see if I can give you some help:

After opening a few manual and searching for the word 'volt' and 'pump' ... each manual talks about 'pumps' generically, as if the pump is a separate purchase item.

Lower down on the manual page they have a list of pool pumps. A search for the word 'volt' inside the pump manuals says 'match supply voltage to motor nameplate voltage.'

As you know, each electric device has a label showing voltage, wattage, etc. Your pump should show 120Volts or 240V. I didn't see any mention of 3 phase wiring, so I assume your Haywood pump runs on typical residential wiring? And that you are not using 440Volt or 3 phase.

The 120Volt pump will have a black, white and bare ground.
The 240Volt pump will probably have a black, white, red and bare ground
The 240Volt pump could have a black white and bare ground

First the 120V pump:
The 120Volt line from your breaker box will have a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire and bare ground >>> this wire connects color-to-color with pool pump

Next the 240V pump with black, white, red and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from your breaker box can have the same 4 wires, in which case they connect color-to-color
b) The 240Volt line from your breaker box could have a black white and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the white goes to red, the bare coppers are connected, the white pump wire is capped off and not used. If pump does not operate with this wiring, another line from the breaker with wires that match pump might be necessary.

The 240V pump with black white and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from breaker can have black, white, red and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the red goes to white, bare grounds are connected, the white wire is capped off
b) The 240Volt line from from breaker can have black white and bare ground, and this connects color-to-color to the pump

HOW do you know if line from breaker is 120V or 240V?
If you know which breaker wire is connected to, then it's easy
If you do not know which breaker
-turn off power
-separate wires so they can be tested
-use ordinary tester
-stand on dry boards
-tape tester leads to sticks so hands are away from power

-turn on power
-test each wire to bare copper
-tester lights up on Hot wire
-120V line will have 1 Hot wire
-240V line will have 2 Hot wires

Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

1st you will belucky if you actually have 240 v, most
homes are usually 220v. In youyr case you need to start at the breaker panel.

The white wire ties in the nuetral bar and the bare wire into the ground bus bar. At the unit you hook up the red and the black wire which will supply the 240

Hi, this is very easy for you to do.The 12/2 Romex wire coming in is the power which you know. What you do need to know, is the voltage coming in? Sometimes they will use 12/2 Romex with ground for 220, 240, operation. You need to know if the T-stat is Line voltage 220, or 240 volt. You have to have the same voltage for both for it to control. Reguardless of the voltage, lets say it is in the 220 and up range. You take one of the 12/2 wires, white or black and hook it to the black or red on the T-stat and the white to the other one, red or black. Thats it, you are done! If the T-stat is 2-pole I am sure it is a high, Line votage T-stat. Best of Luck,

Not sure hooked up correctly

The black and white wires should both go to the breaker. Not just the black wire. If you hook only the black wire to the breaker then you are only feeding the unit with 110 instead of 220. Both wires need to be hot.

Installing FUH cealing heater used 10-3 wire

If you use the white wire as a hot wire, you must identify the wire as being a hot wire at the breaker panel and the unit. The white
wire must be marked about 6 inches back from the terminal
connections with black paint or wrapped with black insulation tape.

It would be easier to use the red wire, since most electricians would identify it as being a hot wire
