Im not looking at a diagram of your machine.

Typically, in a switch circuit ... the green goes through; the white goes through; the black is broken by the switch.

The two orange wires you speak of ... those come from where? Are they from the motor? If yes, one connects to the white and one connects to the switch.

I hope this helps you

If I have misunderstood your question, please ask again.

Can't hook up power cord to main motor on Hoover model F5915100


You have a black and white and green wire. Green is ground white is neutral, black is hot . Should say on the motor either L1 = black wire. L2 = white wire , G = Green wire or it say H = black wire, N = white wire , G or the symbol for ground = green wire

Where do the wires go when i am wiring a garbage disposal using a tw o pole toggle switch


The garbage disposal shoud have three wires a green wire goes to ground,

the white wire is neutral, and the black wire is your hot. at the switch, the white

neutral wire feeds straight to the garbage disposal as does the ground, many

times the switch will either have two screws one gold and one silver and the

green is designated as ground. hot goes to the gold screw and the black wire

coming from your disposal goes to the other screw. make sure to turn off power

before working on electrical wires check with voltage meter, its not like working

on your car, if shocked it can be fatal, if unsure handle wires with insulated tools

or gloves. good luck!

I am tiring to install a GE touch auto shut-off timer, I have 2 wires in the wall 1 black & 1 white, the switch has 4 wires (1 green[ground?], 1 blue, 1 black & 1 white) when I try to follow the...


You might not be able to use that switch in your configuration. It appears that the power was run to the light and only two wires were run back to the switch. The old switch only closes to connect those two wires completing the circuit at the lighting fixture, but you need a hot and a neutral to operate the electronic switch that you have.

I am installing a ge #15070 basic timer and there are 3 wires. Which wire do I attach to the ground?


GE 15070 timer does not have ground wire.
I assume this timer is double insulated, just like some power tools and electronics only have two prong plug.
Leave bare ground wire attached to other bare grounds in the box, and shove grounds to back of box.
I have one of these timers installed.
Timer has red, black and white wires
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070

How to wire GE 15070 timer:
1) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and slide switch to ON-or-OFF. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

5) Add a comment for more free help.
6) Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, fixya expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.

Replaced Oreck power switch. 2 black leads and 1 white lead for switch. Posts marked 1, 2, and 3. 2 black wires to switch powers on. Connect white wire and breaker trips. Where does the white wire go?


Both black go to the switch. Power in - black to switch / white to white from motor.
From motor - black to switch / white to white from power cord
The black wire from the power hooks to the off end of the switch and the black wire from the motor hooks to the on end. Third post is not used. The two white wires are connected to each other with a small twist on wire nut.

REPAIRING A BISSEL GREEN MACHINE, REPLACING PUMP. DON'T KNOWWHICH WIRES GO WHERE ON PUMP


hi

if theres only three wires , green, black and white then the green wire is a ground which goes to an exposed metal exterior screw on the pump. It doesent matter which way the black and white go, it will work either way but if when you try to attatch the connectors theyre harder to attatch one than the other then switch it to the most easier way to attatch. Make sure to connect the green ground wire, it is very important and always try plug the shampooer into the bathroom where the ground fault plug is- its an added level of security in case theres a ground fault.
