Are you sure that receptacle is on it's own breaker or is there another receptacle on same breaker? You may have lost neutral at other receptacle on same circuit.

I got my craftmade ceiling fan about 10 years ago, the fan has now stopped working but the light works, I changed out the switch on the wall that was not the problem sometimes I will turn on the wall...


pretty sure its the 3 speed pull chain switch.$4.50 to $6.00 at home depot or lowes or hardware/elecrtical store.
how 2 replace switch.
1.turn off breaker to fan/fan lights,probably that whole room.
may need extension cord & floor lamp from closest room with electric, so u can see.
2.need 6ft step ladder to get up to fan.look see how to get to fan speed switch. speed switch unscrews from outside but body of switch is inside fan cover.
3. need to take fan off ceiling to replace switch.
4.switch has 4 wires, power feed into switch and 3 selector
wires that go to high speed winding,medium speed winding and low speed winding.
speed selector switch has 4 settings, off, low,medium,high.

about ac circuits , black wire is 120 volts, hot.
white wires are neutral return wire. an ac voltmeter will read 120volts ac with its red and black probes between black,hot and
white,neutral.
white= neutal=ground which is green. If wired properly and polarity was observed, white and green ground wires both connect to the neutral ground buss bar in the circuit breaker panel box and are the same electrical point.

black wires,and the selector handle getting the hot juice into the fan and white returns the used juice to the circuit breaker panel box.
If polarity was observed, you can touch white and ground without getting a shock.
black will jolt or even fry you dead, so make sure the breaker to the fan is off, so that the circuit is de-energized before you touch it.

PLEASE NOTE--- make drawing on paper of what color wires from the fan motor go to what color wires on the selector switch.
If the switch has 4 black wires, you need to put different color electrical tape as a marker, on each wire. or ,to be cheap, you can use white paper,scissors to cut paper,and pencil and write 1,2,3,4 on the paper and tape to the 4 switch wires.

that is: wire # 1 from the switch goes to the black wire from the wall--ac hot
wire #2 from switch goes to yellow fan motor winding,
wire # 3 from switch goes to orange wire from fan motor

wires are specific and NOT interchangeable.

Wiring parallax 7300 series converter


If the white wire is the large # 10 AWG on the DC output, connect it to terminal "D" on the backside of the DC fuse panel. The front side of terminal "D" carries the 12 volt system negative or battery negative wiring. Refer to the wiring label pasted to the inside surface of the drop open door for terminal locations.

If the white wire is the smaller #12 AWG, 120VAC "common" or neutral, connect it to the isolated neutral terminal bar in the 120VAC circuit breaker compartment where the other white 120VAC neutral wiring is connected. The 120VAC isolated neutral terminal bar will have a full length plastic insulator under it and will not be directly connected to the chassis.

I have a hp pavilion dv7 and the power socket has come a lose i need to know which wire goes where.....


The DC Power Jack that the AC adapter (Charger) plugs into?

Look into the DC Power Jack with a magnifying glass and light you'll see it's a center pin surrounded by a barrel. Barrel has an inside and an outside.


1) Center pin. Gold and buried down in the plastic. Connected to WHITE wire at motherboard connector.

2) Inside barrel has 4 Brass fingers.
Orient the laptop so the LED is at 12 o'clock and you'll see fingers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock.

These fingers carry the + 19 volt power to computer.
The ones at 6 and 9 o'clock do, Noon and 3 are not connected.
+19 Volt power arrives at motherboard connector on RED wire.

3. Outside barrel has six brass fingers, at 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 10 o'clock.
2, 3, and 4 are not used,
2, 8, 9 and 10 are the power return (common, or ground) to computer.
It arrives at motherboard on BLACK wire.

4. LED is connected to YELLOW wire and controlled by computer.
Other side of LED is jumpered to a Black wire,(Ground), outside barrel 8, 9, and 10 o'clock.

Wiring the 1750 watt eliminator direct to the main panel


DO NOT DO THIS! If I understand you correctly you want to have three ways to have 110 power in your motor home--- (1)Vehicle 12V to inverter to main panel. (2)Generator to main panel. (3)plug the main panel into 110V. If any two of these are connected at the same time and they are both live, somethings going to blow. That's because with AC, the two sources must be synchronized in their cycles very precisely. The utility company connects their power plants together on the grid only with the aid of precise controls. But the really serious problem is the same reason they invented transfers switches for home generators -- if you were connected to (3) and the power went out, and you connected (1) or (2) without disconnecting the dead (3), you will backfeed power to the line outside and you just might kill the lineman who is trying to fix the power outage.

Replacing eletrical cord to a four prong cord. there are only three connections. there are no color codes to make it easier. How do I replace the cord


Dryers are 220 Volts AC and the outer connections inside the dryer are "hot" or live legs (black or black and red wires) of the circuit, while the center one is typically the neutral (white) wire.

The difference between a 3 prong plug and receptacle and a 4 pronged one is simply that the 4 prong plug and receptacle has a dedicated ground integrated into it, whereas the 3 prong plug is what's commonly referred to as an ungrounded circuit. There is no dedicated ground in a 3 prong plug and receptacle that makes a separate, grounded connection from the dryer to the receptacle to the electrical panel of the house.

Also, please look at either the back of the dryer for a basic wiring diagram, or look inside the access panel where the dryer cord is connected. There should be indications as to what each terminal is for, as I stated, typically the outer connections are the "hot" while the center one is typically the neutral. If you notice a strap running from one of the dryer's connection terminals to the cabinet/frame of the dryer, that is the neutral. The others are the hot terminals, which are the outside ones.

Look for a green grounding screw inside the dryer's electrical connection section. That is where the green wire on the cordset would be connected/terminated.

If you wish, you can get a free Installation Guide for your dryer at the following link to download and/or print out at:

http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/lis_pdf/INSTL/L0520950.pdf

It will show you the connections for both a 3 and 4 wire cordset.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Installing a four prong plug


best bet would to be to buy a plug that matches your receptical.....this is somthing you do not want to monkey with as if not wired right could turn your dryer into a fire hazzard. white to white green to green black to black and the other wire goes to earth ground for like trailer houses and modular homes.

Loose wires.one white and one black at bottom of dishwasher


the black wire is the HOT wire ... it should be connected to 120 volts AC .. the white wire should be connected to the neutral/return wire (also white) ... the incoming AC line shoiuld also include a bare ground wire .. that should be attached to a green grounding screw ... if your machine is already hooked up then there should not be any wires hanging down not connected .. you may be able to see the incoming wire but it should be covered by the dishwasher panels .. all connnections should be made inside a metal box that should be provided under the machine and there should be a strain relief fitting that keeps the wire from pulling out of the box .. ..

I have a four wire on a 20 Amp service. I need 110 outlet.


4 wire recepticals are used for 220 Volt appliances, there should be 2 hot (117V to ground) and one each Grounding and grounded (read neutral) conductors) Breaker or disconnect should be 2 pole for 220 Volt circuit. A 20 Amp 110/117 Volt circuit would have a single pole breaker or disconnect, one "hot" conductor(should be black or colored , not green or white), one neutral conductor (should be white or neutral with white stripe) and an equipment grounding conductor (should be green or bare copper). It sounds to me like your receptical was wired for 220 V using whatever colored wires were handy. Back up to breaker or fuse (disconnect), and shut off circuit. New 117 Volt outlet will be wired with Black to Brass colored screw (short slot on face), One White wire will be used for Neutral conductor (make sure you know which one it is at the breaker panel) and one of the other white wires may (but shouldent be) used for ground (use green marker to identify it at each end),The third white wire should be removed if you can, otherwise cap with wire nut at each end and coil up in back of boxes. At the breaker/ fuse panel, the Black wire is connected to the breaker (It will be your "hot" lead), The white being used for the Neutral is connected to the neutral buss bar with the other Neutrals, and the green goes to the grounding buss bar (should have other green or bare copper wires. Once all is properly connected and secured but without the disposal plugged in, turn on the power and check for leaking smoke (smoke here is a bad thing) The fuse or breaker should protect your wires and help keep that smoke inside the boxes. Check voltages at the new plug, 117 V accross Short and longer slot, 117 from short to ground (round) and 0 or close to it from long (Neutral) to ground. If voltages check, plug in the new appliance and test.
If in doubt about what you have, dont hesitate to contact an electrician, they get paid for their knowledge and experiance and their ability to keep that nasty smoke inside the boxes.
Good Luck.,
