I have a Dimplex in wall heater model 690221900 120 volt 1500 watt. Their is a 110 volt feed line (black, white and ground wire)coming in to the heater housing as well their is a two wire thermostat (UWHT1WH single pole) which I am trying to connect. I have all whites together and all blacks together but the heater keeps blowing the breaker when I try to turn it up or down!! Do I have some of the wiring wrong? Is their a line and load for heater and if so how do I know which wire to put where? Can you send a wiring diagram? Appreciate your help! Thank you

Well, for your wiring, there's nothing wrong with it, So, I think there's two way to find out which ones is wrong, first:
Install your heater without thermostat first, is it working, does the breaker blowing!!!.
If No, then your thermostat is the cause, but if Yes, then,
second:
Try install it with the new breaker with 10 A minimum, you must replace the breaker with new ones.When it's OK, then try install the thermostat too.

Hope it works!!!

Where can I get a manual for a vintage Montgomery Ward sewing machine?


I would suggest that you advertise in a magazine for antique machines. However, be careful with the electrics. I would suggest that you find a retired electrician or a radio ham that can check it over etc before you use it. Also these days things need to be grounded. Your machine will have a 2 wire lead and the old 2 pin flat blade plug. Many years ago I was the electrical engineer for "a department of the airforce" and on one of my reports after a fatality on something not grounded was taken and put verbatim into UL. So please get someone technical to see to it and have it grounded.

India 220watts how I cAn use brother cs6000i sewing machine in India


The only way I know is a 110/220 volt transformer.
They are available in any electronics supply house.
As I remember the motors in these machines are only two lead, and they put the motor in for the country it will be sold in.
Dual voltage motors have three or four leads (wires).

SINGER Futura XL-400


230 V @ 50 Hz; 64 W for European version, so 0.27 Amps ; if you're in the US, just call a retailer and ask them to read the voltage and wattage or amperage off the nameplate of the machine. Watts = Volts x Amps. Since US voltage is 110, 64 Watts would mean the machine was drawing about 0.6 Amps. That's assuming it's an equivalent motor to the European version.

I have a hunter ceiling fan that was wired with 2 conductor so the fan is always on when the light is on. I should be able to replace the 2 conductor with 3 conductor to seperate the controls. Yes?


That's correct, you need to add a switch on your wall, so you'll have one switch for the light and one for the fan, and instead of having a black and white wire going from the wall switch box to the fan box you will run 3 wire cable with a black, red and white wire. Black and red will control your fan and light while white will be your neutral. Just remember to separate the wires up in the fan box so your light and fan are controlled separately.

We have just installed a Hampton Bay Flexible Track Light. For some reason we are not getting power to the track. I have used a voltage tester and it indicates that there is power to the power connector,...


Hello. If, by chance, the switch you are using to control this track light is a dimmer switch you will have to replace it with a common switch. Dimmer switches are not compatible with these flex track lights as they use a transformer to drop the voltage. If that is not the case, disconnect your connections and check at that point to be sure that you have 110 volts of power. A light socket on a pigtail that you can temporarily connect to the black and the white wires is an easy way to check. If you do have power at the ceiling box I would once again hook up the wires. Black to black and white to white. IF after all that it still doesn't work as your transformer is probably faulty. Just exchange it for a brand new one and give it another try. Good luck with it.

Light dims when you sew


the problem is that the cord that was replaced on it is too light for the sewing machine. some companies sell cords that are made with 18awg wire 18awg wire can only deliver enough electricity to run the motor sapping up all of the power from the light as soon as you push the pedal. you need to get a cord made by singer or rewire your cords with 16awg wire... 16awg wire is the standard wire for all vintage singer sewing machines it keeps the light nice and bright...... hope this helps
