Own a Heath zenith sh 5105 motion detector flood light. I wired it to plug into an outlet. Flood light comes on when I plug it in and stays on. Seems as if the sensor isn't working. Do I have it wired...


look to see how you have it wired, most sensor lights have many wires to put together, if it is not wired already from factory, you need to look to see how you have it wired, most sensors have three wires one black one red and one white, black wire goes to power, red wire goes to lamp, white goes to neutral, after all is wired you should have only 3 wires a black a white and a green, black to power white to home neutral and green to ground

There is no blue cable in a 220V, so you have only; white, black, red and ground always green colored wire.

Looking your plug frontal side.
Green Ground on top (semi-circle)
black on left
red on right
white on bottom (neutral).

I'm hooking a 50 amp plug to this dryer , i have 4 wires the old 1 has 3 my colors are black, red, white,and green from left to right which way do they go on


Hello. I can assist you. first of all, please do not use a 50 amp plug on a dryer. A dryer requires a 30 amp plug. The plug you are using is for an electric range or oven. The black and the red wires are both hot wires. The white is neutral and the green is ground. read the device it will say LINE and LINE for the hot wires and neutral for neutral. It should have a green screw on it for your ground [green].

Frigidaire self cleaning stove mod FEF369cgsb ser vf94422321 was originally wired direct and it shows 4 wires. Now I want to use a plug and outlet, 3 prong. How do you connect the 3 prong plug? thank you...


Vivian
the original wiring probably had a red, white, black, and green wire. It is 240 volts. The red is hot, carrying one leg of 120 volts. The black is also hot, carrying 120 volts. The white is neutral, and the green is the ground.

I am against altering this, but you can wire the red and black each to a hot leg, and wire the white and green to the bottom ground. This then introduces a ground wire to your neutral bar in the circuit panel, which is not the best way to do it, but will work.

Best to get an electrician to wire a 4 wire cable to a four prong outlet, and then use a four wire pigtail with a 4 pronged plug.

Lots of people modify it, they ground the green wire to the stove, where the wire originates,and to the box with the outlet in it where it hooks onto the plug if it is metal. Then you have a part ground. And that is assuming you have a cable with wires sticking out to wire to a plug.

Boils down to your decision. If the above isn't the case, get a four pronged outlet and wire the red and black to the top two prongs, the white to the neutral, and the green to the metal box it sits in.

Trying to install 3 way cord with a 4 way replacement cord. I have disconnected all wires and put them back. My question is concerning the white wire.The wires that are already connected to the dryer red,...


In a three wire system you have 2 hot wires (black and red) and a neutral (white). the ground is connected to the neutral at the dryer. In a 4 wire system you have the 2 hot wires, neutral, and a ground. (green). The ground is connected with the neutral at the circuit panel. The hot wires at the dryer should be on the outside scres, the neutral should be in the center and the ground should be under the green screw. *****. .

I have a 3-prong plug on a 14-year-old dryer. Now must change to 4-plug. Is that possible ... and if so, how?


A three Prong contains L1 (Line1), L2 (Line2) and N (Neutral). A four prong will contain L1 (Line1), L2 (Line2), N (Neutral) and G (Ground) typically a green wire.
Connect the three wires as normal, connect the green wire to the screw provided on the cabinet.

I am trying tochange my


This is common issue. Due to some building codes the 3-prong configuration is no longer used in homes. The wiring is similar with one exception. The 4-wire plug uses an additional (WHITE) NEUTRAL wire.

Here's a brief explanation of how the plugs are configured:

Dryer 3 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC

Dryer 4 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC
WHITE - NEUTRAL

BOTH plugs provide the SAME source voltages to your appliance:

220 VAC - provided across the RED and BLACK leads are what drives your heating circuitry.
120 VAC - usually tapped of the BLACK wire is used to run the drive motor and timer on MOST dryers.

The wire terminal block in the back of the dryer should have a black, white, and red wire running to it from the dryer wiring harness. With the 4 prong plug, simply attach the BLACK, WHITE and RED wires at the terminal block ensuring that you match the RED and BLACK wires as they are configured and attach the WHITE wire at the remaining terminal lug. Make sure you screw them all down securely. Attach the remaining GREEN wire to chassis (dryer frame) ground. I hope this helps you.
