No it does not need a plug,what you are doing is called hard wiring the unit.if it is not working make sure you hookthe two primary wirers on each side of the panel,green is always ground no matter what!

I have a marathon 3hp motor wired for 220 on a campbell hausfield air compressor. It has a white, black, and green wire coming out of the motor. I am using a no. 12 wire with ground. how do i wire it up to...


Hi! sims146
The Green wire from the electric motor is ground. Check the compressor motor, make sure it is wired for 220-230 Volts. If it has a white wire it could be wired 120 Volts. There should be voltage and current ratings on the motor plate. I always double check these connections. At 230 Volts this motor should be 17 Amps full Load. A 25-30 amp fuses are required to protect this motor circuit. Otherwise up to a 42.5 Amp Inverse Time Delay Breaker could be used.
The welder circuit should have 230 Volts between the Red and Black wires. The white wire is Nutral / Ground. Hopefully this is a 30 to 40 Amp circuit. The Four prong air compressor outlet, White is Neutral, Black and Red 230 Volts, Gray should be ground. Please check with Voltmeter, as some times people swap colors.

Hello, I was a little suspicious about the voltage on this unit. Forgive me if I am telling you something you already know on the power side of this welder. http://content.lincolnelectric.com/pdfs/products/literature/e230.pdf
The welder you have is a 230 volt single phase 60 hz. What you require is a 230 volt connection. The two line wires from the 230 are connected on either side of the switch. The ground has to be connected to the chassis / frame of the welder itself. I would not connect to the ground cable output, I would connect only to the metal chassis of the welder. This is to keep the welder isolated from the main power circuits in your shop.

I have a miller cp 300. It is wired for 3 phase power. I need to hook it up to 230 volt power. How do I do this correctly.


You cannot do this... 3 phase and single phase cannot be inter used... see 3 phase is 440 V AC, single phase is 230 Vots AC. This is unless the unit has Dual capability, in this case the wiring could only be wired to a Single Phase. of the unit. You will need a slow blow breaker of the correct rating and also the cable must be similarly CURRENT rated. If it IS only 3 phase, you can purchase after market single phase to 3 phase converters, that will allow you to plug the 3 phase into a single phase circuit and work, they quite costly though.

Inspector is correct! In wall or conduit wiring awg will always be greater than "open air" wiring. IE: the size of wire coming from your pole ... it's smaller than from your service riser into your meter. Code allows the cord to heat up... open air will cool it down.
