Got a used dryer had a 4 prong my house is 3 prong, changed the 4 prong to 3 prong plugged in and wont turn on, what do i do?


There is a difference between how a 3 prong and a 4 prong power cord is installed. Please read the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

If you have the power cord installed correctly and still do not have power, please check for 220-240 VAC at the wall receptacle. If you require additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a 4 prong dryer but the plug in the wall is a three prong, ibought a four prong plug and i dont know how to connect a three wire into a four prong plug please help me.. hugo


Do NOT try and change the receptacle please. It is dangerous and we do not want anyone getting hurt. In your case, it would be better to put a 3 prong cord on the dryer. Overall you could call an electrician to install the 4 prong receptacle, which will require new 4 conductor wire as well and run to the breaker box. Get a flat style 3 prong dryer cord and we'll tell you how to install it. Unless you call an electrician. ;-) If this helps you, please rate my answer. Thank you.

I have a dryer that has a 3 prong cord however the connection at the wall is a 4 prong outlet. I need to know how to change it.


The following link explains how to convert a 3-prong power cord to a 4-prong:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

The main difference is how the Neutral (White) and the Ground (Green or Bare Copper) wires are terminated at the terminal block. In a 4 -wire configuration these wires are independent of each other. In other words, neutral does NOT get grounded.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Our dryer had a 3 prong plug in and we need to go to a 4 prong plug in. What wires go where?


The difference between the 3 prong and the 4 prong, is that in the 4 prong, the ground strap is being eliminated and replaced with a grounding wire. I am attaching a photo for reference. Note how the ground strap is under the center wire in the 3 prong and it is not under the wire, but is replaced by the green wire on the 4 prong. Confusing? Just look at the pic and I think you will see what I am talking about. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Change fr 3 prongs to 4


They wire in the same except the green wire will go to a ground screw which should be right in the same area with a green color to it. If no ground screw, hook the green together with the white (center) wire. Hope this helps!

Wall plug is 3 prong, dryer is 4 prong...is there an adaptor available?


The following link explains the wiring scheme for 3 and 4 prong power cords. I know the instructions are for converting from a 3 to a 4 prong, but if you look under the "Additional Notes" section it explains how to convert back to a 3-prong if you are currently using a 4-prong.

I hope this helps you. If you have any questions, please let me know.
