I have a 110v irrigation pump. I have a 25 ft 10Gauge extention cord from the pump to my outlet. The cord gets very hot for about 4 - 5 inches from the outlet. Is the problem coming from the pump or the outlet. Thanks

Power cord is not heavy enough for the length of cord your using,therefor the wire heats up from the amount of amps your pump is useing.

I have an orbit 4 station indoor timer. I understand where the solenoid wires go but am a bit confused as to where th pump wires go. Are all the common wires connected to gether and then go into the timer...


Timer is not identified.
Orbit shows five different 4-station timers: Add a comment and say which timer is being used, and what voltage you are using and what wires you have.
http://www.orbitonline.com/support/guides/Manualsearch3.cfm?Brand=02&Type=Timers

Example below:
-Power to operate timer:
The example timer has power cord that plugs into outlet.
Other timers have low voltage transformer that plugs into outlet.

Connecting solenoids.
Each station or solenoid has two wires:
The common wires are connected together so that common connects to each solenoid, and the second wire connects to terminals 1 2 3 4 as shown.

How to use it if we have 220V outlet?


If the AC unit is 110V then you must plug it into a regular 110V outlet. You cannot plug it into the 220V outlet. Either get a bigger 220V unit or use a 12 gauge extension cord to get it to a 110V outlet.

How do I test a specific Orbit Watering station without turning on the whole system?


I have done this in a couple ways. With a digital timer you can select a zone on manual and turn only that zone on. with a mechanical timer, you can set the dial to that zone and increas the duration. You can "hot wire" the zone by moving the zone wire to connect to the low voltage wire input to the zone. You can take a transformer out to the ground box and with an extention cord "hot wire " the zone at the ground box.

GFCI cord not long enough


Standard extention cords are made for light draw applications like lamps and T.V.s. They are not heavy enough for the power that your A/C will draw. You can get an appliance extention cord that is made to handle heavier load such as you A/C. Most hareware stores carry them.

My LG dryer had a 4 prong cord and my new house is a 3 prong outlet. We changed the cord to the 3 prong cord, turned it on and it lit up for 1 second then turned off. We first checked the circuit breaker...


Well a dryer works off of 240 Volts. It splits that up. The light in your dryer uses 110V but the heating elements use 240V. The motor which won't start uses 110V and the controls use 110V. There could be a couple prolems and of which it could be. You need to get a meter and check that both leads are getting 110V from each hot lead to neutral. Also when you switch back to a three prong, the ground is no longer separate and you need to jumper the ground to the neutral terminal. (When you have a four prong cable the ground is separate for the fact that its safer). Even if the circuit breaker is on, I would check that each terminal of the breaker is putting out 110V to ground (If so it needs to be replaced, its simple to do just wire it like the other one, and turn off main power to replace it so there is no power to the buss bar its attached to. Just be careful not to touch the main feed wires to the panel as they are still powered). If none of this pans out, it could also be that your dryer needs that four wire plug (I would check with your manufacturer). Either way, if your dryer worked before it shouldn't be a dryer problem now

4 wire to 3 wire dryer cord


usually the grounding strap is still on the machine after the installation of a four prong cord (they just bend it out of the way), if not you can use a wire to connect the neutral to the case or just buy a ground strap when you buy the cord.    (hot wire 110v) neutral wire (hot wire 110v) neutral wire is always in the middle. both on the cord and on the machine

If your dryer came with a 4-prong plug, do not change it. For the very reasons you quoted with the article, you may screw up the 110v accessories required of your appliance (like the clock or digital display). It is best to change the household outlet to a 4-prong type. Just make sure your wiring is correct. You will need a neutral on the 4th leg, which means you will probably have to run new wiring from the outlet to the distribution panel.
