Blk/red are your two 120 volt lines the white is your neutral, if this is a 120/240volt combination motor make sure you change the wiring in the motor configuration to make it 240volt from 120volt

I HAVE A AQUA FLOW 5HP ON THE RED AND BLACK WIRE I HAVE POWER BUT THE WHITE WIRE IS DEAD.SHOULD I HAVE POWER ON THE WHITE WIRE? THANKS,


If your supply wire has 3 wires, a black, a red and a white wire, then the white wire is the neutral, it has no voltage to ground. Both the black and red wire should have 120V to ground. Between the red and black wire you find 240V. A 5hp pump would typically run on 240V, the neutral is not used.

4 lamp t5 fixture, 1 black wire, 1 white wire, 1 red wire. how do I wire this


Don't forget this is a 240v appliance so it must be fed from a 240v circuit breaker. Once you have a 240v circuit breaker you need to run 12/3 wire with ground from circuit breaker to a box near your fixture. The 12/3 wire with ground will have; 1 black, 1 white, 1 red and a bare ground wire. With the circuit breaker OFF, hook the wires up respectively to the same colors and ground the bare wires togather with a green ground screw in the box. Turn circuit breaker on.

I have the Fahrenheat Model FUH 724 heater. The manual states that it can be wired as a 240v 7500W unit but the directions and the unit itself only allow for three wires to be connected Black, White, and...


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.

This is an example:
You have a Double Pole Single Throw breaker. Black
Wire is hot and goes into one side of breaker,if you havea red wire that goes into the other have of the
breaker.

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
Volts, you could tie the white and the ground wires together into the grounding terminal

WIRING DIAGRAM


The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

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.

What coloured wires go where on the main oven thermostat


If you are speaking of the 240v connection to hook up the oven to the electrical source, then white is the neutral(white to white), black is one of the 240v hot wires(black to black), and red is the other 240v hot wire(red to red).
Finally there is a bare or green color ground wire that goes to the bare or green wire form your source.
normally, the two outside wires on a terminal strip are the hot wires and the middle onif the neutral(white). It does not matter which wire(red or black) goes to what hot terminal at the appliance.
If you are talking about the internal wiring, I can get you a schematic of that.
