    the colors are not generic, they go by whomever makes the antenna, so can't help, experiment and figure it out, 2 wires are going to be hot (one at a time) one lowers the antenna and one raises it, the other is ground. U will need the relay that come with it as well.

Yellow- batt perm
green is acc

blue and green could be around the other way,hook power onto it on the bench and try to add power to other 2 in different sequence and you will work out which one is which, make sure u earth the antenna or it wont work

Hi, Looking for a wiring/electrical diagram for Neff D39F56S0GB Extractor hood. Or could you Kindly point me in the right direction. Thank you


You can find the manual here:

D39F56S0GB/01

and here:
D39F56S0GB/02

It should come with a cable attached which should conform to standard wiring colour codes.

Red/Brown = Live/Feed
Black/Blue = Neutral/Return
Green/Green & Yellow = Earth

If the standard cable has been cut off there is a good chance it was for a reason and you shouldn't try to connect it without knowing how to determine which contact is for which (an electrician/electronics tech will know within seconds what should be connected where.)

We are having a neff oven U15M62NOGB fitted. The wires in the booklet are earth on the left, live in the middle and neutral on the right. Is this correct as the neutral and live are the other way round on...


Yes, the installation instructions are correct. The wiring from your old oven isn't relevant.

Your query is a little confusing though. The new oven should have a power cable attached to it for connection to the mains supply. This should be on a separate circuit from your sockets and connected to an isolator switch. The wires in the power cable are colour coded to ensure that they are correctly polarised when connecting to the mains supply. I'm assuming you're in the UK as you list a GB model number, therefore, it should have a BROWN wire for LIVE, BLUE for NEUTRAL and GREEN/YELLOW for EARTH.

If your house wiring uses the old red (live) and black (neutral) colour coding, then you just need to ensure that the brown (live) wire from the oven lead is connected where the red wire from the supply is terminated. The blue (neutral) wire should be connected where the black wire is terminated and the green/yellow (earth) wire should be connected where the green wire is terminated.

Internally, the oven probably uses red cable for live and black for neutal, but you really shouldn't need to be doing anything with the internal wiring to install the oven.

You say you are having it fitted. Any competent installer would know (or check) the correct wiring order even if the instructions were missing. If you are installing it yourself, be sure are certain you understand what to do before attempting this and double-check the power for the oven circuit is off before you start.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

On a Panasonic radio/cassette player model-CQ-RD910 Len,which colour wire is the trigger/sender wire for an electric aerial/antenna to extend or retract the mast. The electric aerial/antenna drive motor...


The " Blue & red spotted " wire that is spare from the rear of the radio transpires to come from the " cold " side of the radio's on / off switch , and serves to be only energized when the radio is switched-on and slowly shuts down on supply voltage when the radio is switched off , thus giveing a supply voltage for the relay & switch over reed switches in the aerial / antenna motor unit for a short run-down-time , to change over and allow the aerial mast to retract , in readyness for when the radio is switched on again and the aerial/antenna mast will power up .
This trigger / sender wire is connected via a 2 amp. fuse through to the aerial / antenna power relay.
The main aerial power motor unit is fed via a 6 amp. fuse.

Wiring/connecting wire from fan to home ceiling


Hi,

this depends on where you live UK/USA et,c or other.
It is best to search the manufacturers site, to find installation codes/colours.
i.e USA use a lot Of Black and white. UK uses Red/Black Green/yellow.
And on houses that are rewired to 17th edition electrics ( UK ) the colours have now changed on mains twin and earth household Wiring. What Used to Be Red ( Live ) Is Now Brown. Black ( Nuetral ) Is now Blue. green/yellow is earth.

*** Important Note:- you should have several reds in a ceiling junction box or light fitting, these are circuit wires. ( Live From Light to next light ) The same as with Black ( Nuetral )
There will usually be 1 switch wire/Cable. this feeds a live from the switch, to the live power up to the light. many homes use a twin core and earth, from the light switch to the fitting. this may be black ( if a black/red ) has been used. *** Do not connect a black Switch wire with the remaining neutrals***
This will blow a fuse or trip a breaker.

Your solution:- connect the black neutral To the Black neutral cables ( more Than 1 at the ceiling Rose/fitting ) if there is a green/yellow or green ( this will be earth ) You may have 2 remaining Colours Possibly red and Blue or other. The Red Should be the switched Live. ( the single cable Red/Black with red tape around It ) This will be the switched Live. The remaining cable would probably be connected to the Bunch of Reds ( Constant Live ) As ceiling fans require a constant and switched live ( if the fan has lighting )

If in any doubt, consult a qualified or competant Electrician. *****And always remove or isolate the mains supply before attempting any installation*****. After the wiring is complete replace the fuse or switch on the breaker, to test your installation.

This information, is supplied by a fully competant electrician.

Thankyou for using fixya.
