920 fan command 2 pin connector from

The 3 pin fan is basically a 2 speed fan- it has a slower fan speed for aircon and a faster speed for engine cooling.

Check the wiring on the fan- there should be a common earth, probably a black wire. The other two will need power for the two different speeds. Use some spare wire and connect the earth wire to the battery earth. Then run a power wire from your bat positive and connect to one of the other wires. As the fan comes on hold tight as it can have quite a kick to it!

Test which wire is for the fast speed and the connect that fast speed wire and the earth to the two pin connector on your vehicle. Ensure that the polarity of the wiring is right- ie the fan is turning in the right direction! If not, reverse them and this will change the direction of the fan.

How to wire a plug

In USA, Either the male or female plug connector would be wired the same. Black is hot wire and would connect to the BRASS colored round head screw ( Smallest flat prong or slot ). White is the neutral wire and would connect to the SILVER colored round head screw ( Largest flat prong or slot ). Green is the ground wire and would connect to the GREEN screw ( ONLY HEX shaped screw ). 1) FOR YOUR LIFE SAFETY, ALWAYS USE 3-WIIRE PLUGS WHEN REPAIRING 3-WIRE EXTENSION CORDS! 2) Check the male plug connector. It should have two flat and one rounded prong. The rounded prong is the ground wire connection. If the ground prong is missing, replace the plug. 3) Inspect the outer cover for damage. 4) Do not use cords with damaged outer covers. Taping over the damage is not an adequate repair, for safety, replace the cord.

Wiring a normal 240volt plug to a 16 amp 3 prong pushin female blue plug ,i am ok with the normal house hold 240v plug it has earth ,neutral and live clearly marked but the 16 amp blue round female 3 prong...

240VAC U.S. household voltage is not earth, neutral, live.
It is ground, Hot (L1) and Hot (L2). From either Hot to ground is 120VAC and from Hot to Hot is 240VAC.
You might not ought to be doing this.
BUT IF you are sure that you are not about to wire up a plug to put 240 onto a 120 circuit and IF you KNOW which one is ground, then it doesn't matter which Hot is to which terminal.

Kenmore Dryer model 86683100. I need to change

Yeah, red and black go to the outside terminals, white in the center and green goes to the cabinet. What I do is hook up the red, white and black, then I place the green between the terminal block cover and the frame and screw it in tight.
