    I paged through many of the images at the link you sent me but didn"t see the diagram I need. Plus I don"t have time to page through 20,000 images and some of them I can't read because there blurry. Can't you send me the one diagram of a Marquette 12-185? Thats why I paid to ask an EXPERT.

Look at the terminal pad on the welder,two of the three terminals will have L1 and L2 these are for the two hot leads i.e. 120volts L1 and 120volts L2 which makes the 220 or 240 volts needed to operate the welder, the other will have an N on it for the neutral wire usually between the two hot leads and if you have a fourth lead marked G this is for the SAFETY_ GROUND green wire,it doesn't matter which one of the two hot wires goes to which L1 or L2

Where can I find a service manual? I need to change the 3 wire power cord to a 4 wire cord.


first install the RED & BLACK conductors on the cord to the L1 & L2 terminals or the 2 outer terminals on the 3 position terminal strip on the dryer,next take the WHITE ( NEUTRAL) wire on the cord connect it to the "N" terminal on the dryer terminal strip usually located between the 2 phase wires RED & BLACK so the terminal strip will be(RED-WHITE-BLACK) red & black can go on either outer terminal as they are not polarity sensitive due to the A.C. current, then the GREEN on the power cord goes to any metallic portion on the dryer case

Trying to replace a 3prong plug with a 4prong plug


Ok, so you currently have a three prong cord on your dryer? Your house has a 4 prong receptacle? Ok so now you've purchased a 4 prong dryer pigtail? Be sure cord is unplugged. Remove cover of junction in back of dryer. You will see three terminals. They should be labeled something like L1,L2,N . ON one terminal you well see a small ground strip This is currently connecting the neutral terminal to ground. On the new cord connect the outside two conductors to L1 +L2 connect the white conductor to the N terminal. Connect the green (ground) conductor to the frame where the copper bonding was. This seperates the neutral conductor from the equipement grounding conductor.

My welder has 3 terminals earth,415v and 380v how do i wire it up i have 3 phase


wire the 3 hot phases to the power terminals on the welder,do not hook the earth to the welders neutral terminal,ground it to the welders case and ground it back to the panel,this way if your using a delta system the 3 phases will balance themselves,but if you hook the neutral terminal up to the welder you'll have what they call the "wild-leg" on one phase and it will be considerably higher voltage than the other 2 phases

Welder doesnt turn on...


Have you connected the feed from your breaker box to ADJACENT lugs on a dual pole breaker? By code you must use a ganged breaker.

You should use a voltmeter to verify the plug is getting power on teh desired pins.

How to hook up a ge dryer change from a THREE PRONG TO FOUR PRONG HOOK UP


Replace the old Three prong cord with a 4 prong.

White wire from 4 prong cord goes to the center terminal of the connector block. If there is a metallic strip on that terminal that goes to ground remove it from the terminal and bend it away from the terminal and down so it either touches the case or ends in thin air. Be sure it can't touch either of the outside terminals of the 3 terminal block.

Red and Black wires of cord go to outside terminals of the three terminal block. It makes no difference which one goes on which terminal but I usually attach them so the color of the cord wire matches the colors of the wires already on that terminal.

The last terminal is green and should be attached tightly to any screw of the case or any metal bracket attached to the case that it is long enough to reach as this is the ground. This lead protects you from electrocution if the dryer has an internal problem and should be tight to the case.

Admiral Clean-O-Matic oven: Power cord black red white ground?


Your terminal block has been by-passed .
Hook your black cord wire to the black screw on the terminal block.
Hook your white wire to the white screw on the terminal block. Hook the bare ground to the exterior ground screw.
The 2 wires that are wire-nutted together will have to hook to the red wire on the cord.(they originally went to the third connection on the terminal).
You will probably have to cut and strip the red cord wire and attach it with the 2 wire-nutted connections.

4 wire power cord connection


The difference between a 3 and 4 wire cord is the 4 wire cord separates the ground and neutral, where the 3 wire grounds through the neutral. The 4 wire cord gives an extra safety against electric shock. The red and black wires on the cord go to the red and black wires on the terminal block. Then you have to determine where the green wire on the dryer goes, if it has one. Some dryers have the green wire spliced into the white wire maybe 6 inches from the terminal block. If this is the case you will hook both the green and white wires on the dryer to the nuetral (middle) terminal with just the white wire on your cord. Some dryers have a ground strap, a flat narrow peice of metal that goes from the neutral of the terminal block to the cabinet just below it. If this is the case then remove the screw securing it to the cabinet and bend it back up onto the nuetral terminal, or remove it completely. Then hook the green ground wire from the cord to the cabinet of the dryer. Make sure all of your connections are tight, but be careful not to strip them. It's also important to hook up the strain relief to prevent any possible tugs on the cord from pulling on the terminal block connections.
