Put on a new power cord wiring diagram


If you need a wiring diagram for this task you should not be doing the work. Please don't dis-assemble the fan, or try to work on it unless you already know what you are doing, you could easily use the wrong cord or not connect the (rather simple I admit) wires correctly.

Which wires go where there is no diagram..there is one spot by itself then three spot in a row the colors of wire are green black white and red


Hi, If you are hooking up a power cord to a dryer, the white wire goes to the middle post and the red and black go on the outer posts. The 4th wire will fasten to the ground screw just next to the access panel for the electric hook up.
If this is a 3 wire cord, put the center wire to the middle post and the outer wiers go to the outer posts. It does not matter which outer wire you put on the outer post.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

We bought an electric dryer from sears outlet


220 Cords are usually color coded - BLACK, WHITE, RED, GREEN for Ground. Inside the dryer where you connect the wires should be the same colors. Just put the Black with the Black and so on. Make sure the plug is for a dryer and not a stove.

WIRING DIAGRAM


The following link explains the proper wiring scheme for installing a 220VAC power cord to an appliance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

Make sure you also have a dedicated outlet and power source for your dryer. This means a single outlet with a single circuit breaker. Most homes are constructed this way to ensure safe operation of the appliance and to prevent improper loading. If you have questions, please let me know.

As far as a wiring diagram is concerned, most manufacturers place a schematic drawing inside the operator console of the appliance for troublshooting purposes. I hope this helps.

Conveyor dryer wiring


Newer electrical codes call for a 4 wire receptacle. never splice appliance cords, it isn't woth the safety issue and they are not very expensive. you need to access the terminal block, which is where the cord goes into the dryer. the cord you use (3 or 4 wire) will depend on what is on your wall. if you wall has a 3 wire plug then you will need to connect the green wire from the center terminal to the frame of the dryer. there is probably a hole and screw next to terminal block. that is where the green wire goes on a 3 wire hook-up. if you have a 4 wire receptacle then the green wire should be hooked to center terminal (white). you will have to obtain the proper cord (pigtail) from a parts supplier.
