SOURCE: I have 2-240V (4.2V) basebaord heaters, Need Wiring Diagram

you get 120V from any phase (black OR red) to neutral
you get 240V from phase to phase (between black and red) and in this scenario you don't need the white wire.
So for you, connect the black to 1 pole of the breaker and the red to the other pole, connect the green wire to the ground strip and you are done.
A white wire is NEVER connected to a circuit breaker anyway, it is a grounded wire, it would be like connecting a green wire to a black wire, bad idea.
the National electrical code specifies red and black wire color for 240VAC circuits.
As Ask Hank mentionned, nothing wrong with 10/3 wire.

SOURCE: wiring diagram for electric motor

The more I look at this motor the more I think that it is a stepping motor and not an AC motor... I could be wrong, but checking the windings and seeing the small Tach Motor on the rear leads me to believe that this is not a ac motor, but a stepping motor and is triggered from the programmer for rpm

I have a 240v electric motor with 3 wires black,white,red how do you hook this up to a relay


Think of a relay as a simple light switch, breaking the hot on a "NO", normally open, set of contacts. When unit isn't on, the hot is "open", therefore motor not working. When the relay is energized by the g wire from the tstat, those contacts close, completing the circuit of 240. So, white carrying 120 constantly to the motor, black carrying 120, through the relay, to the motor.

Lights come on but no heat from eyes or oven?


Hello, I really need the make/model number to help you accurately but with the info you've described, I can tell you what to check first. 1st, some oven operating know-how--they operate on 240v AC. That means there are *2 hot wires, each with 120v*, a "neutral" wire, and a ground wire. To power up the control panel, the makers usually just run a wire up from one of the incoming AC supply wires, known as L1 and L2. Importance: it is possible to have the control panel work perfectly, lights and all, and have the problem you're describing--quite possibly THE OTHER 120v supply wire has become disconnected, either at the back of the oven where the terminal block is located, or at the 240v outlet on the wall. Also, the heavy cord with the plug on the end might have corroded/broken/burned up, so check it, too. Also, check that 240v is *getting* to the 240v outlet--this will tell you if the problem is at the panel box or at the oven-end of things. An old outlet might hold one blade of the plug tightly and the other will be too loose to make a good connection. BE CAREFUL WHEN CHECKING ELECTRICALLY HOT CONNECTIONS--240V WILL KILL YOU, DEAD. Make your movements deliberate, be focused, take your time. If you are hesitant about any of this, call for service! I hope I helped you!

Led wiring diagram on 240V AC


Is Led 120V or 240V?
For 120V you need a neutral wire.
240V generally does not have neutral wire.

2 speed switch wiring dieagram


The motor will have wiring diagram and voltage on nameplate.
You can re-post question with information that shows on nameplate for more exact information, or keep reading below:
If motor is rated for 240Volts, then it will not work with 120V.
If motor is rated for both 120V and 240V, then either Low voltage or high voltage will work, and one wire will be common, and 1 wire will for 120 and other wire for 240.
If motor is rated 120Volt two speed, then one wire will be neutral, and 1 wire low speed, and other wire high speed. You can connect your wire to either low of high, and cap other wire.
If motor is 240volt two speed, then one wire will be common, and 1 wire low speed, and other wire high speed.
If motor is rated 3-phase, then all three wires are connected to the voltage shown on nameplate.
If motor is rated 3-phase two speed, you may need electrician to wire the motor correctly.

LP126HD3A rated for 265 volts AC single phase I have 240V ac single phase, how can I use this unit on 240V ac


You'd need to supply a "Buck-Boost" transformer to do this properly. Technically, the 265 VAC is one hot leg and neutral of a 480 VAC 3 Phase Y system that measures 277 VAC. The 265 number comes from this:

265 is the standard nameplate voltage for a 277 volt motor or AC unit.

230 is standard name plate for 240.
200 is standard name plate for 208
460 is standard name plate for 480.
110 is standard name plate for 120.

Most electricians call the hot leg / neutral circuit "277V AC".

Some popular "Buck-Boost" transformers will convert 208 to 240 and 240 to 208 volt systems, and 240 to 277 and 277 to 240 volt systems - among many other variations. These are auto-transformers as the primary secondary windings share a connection. KVA ratings differ significantly from name plate because of this fact. You should contact a qualified electrician to not only size, but wire the transformer for you. Failure to install a Buck-Boost transformer - and running this unit on 240V AC mains will cause premature failure of motors - fans and compressor due to overheating. This can also result in a fire hazard.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I want to run this compressor "RITIN RT2012" 2HP 12L (1.5kW) compressor. It's a 110V AC drive unit and I have 240V. Can I run it or do I need to convert the Power supply.


You can't just run it on the 240 Volt supply. Check the motor nameplate. If it says it is rated for 110/220 or 115/230, or 120/240 Volts, then it is capable of running at 240V. This will require a wiring change, and you may need a larger size power cord.
The electrical diagram should be on the motor name plate or under the cover to the electrical terminals on the motor.
