    If you provide a little more info I may be able to help you with more certainty. Are you installing this switch as a replacement? If so, are there only two wires to connect to two terminals? Is this a simple on/off switch? If so, you can connect either wire to either terminal.

Hi there, Without getting technical, I'm going to assume you have two wire's coming out of your fixture - which you've already identified as the line (aka. power/hot leg), and load (switch leg). And, you want to know which side of the switch to splice (connect/hook) these wires to? Well, on a switch, it doesn't matter. You should have two wires coming from your pull chain switch, right? If so, then connect one wire (fixture) to one wire (switch)  - and the other wire (fixture) to the other wire (switch). And you should be good to go. Now remember, before you begin to work on this fixture, to please turn OFF the power going to the fixture. I always do as licensed electrician, and I always make this part of my practice when helping others, that they do the same. Thanks! As I said from the beginning..."Without getting technical"; I'm double checking with you that you are absolutely sure that you have, and know - the wires coming from the fixture - are for sure, the line and load wire's. Because if not, then please contact me with the information you do have - and then I'll help walk you through with it. I hope this helps, and works for you. Good Luck! - JR

    Hi there ssoskin, 
    Somewhat helpful tells me you're still not sure, or aren't clear enough yet. If you've fixed your switch, great! If not, say so - and tell me what you've done so far, or tell me what you're not sure about - and I'll clear it up for you. Hopefully, your switch is in and working. Just checking in and offering some added help. Good Luck! JR

How to install jensen 40w+40w a-80


I have one of these new, in the box, with no instructions.

Specifications:
Power Output: 40W/Chan Maximum, 18W/Chan RMS
(20hz-20khz into 4 ohms at less than 1% THD)
Freq. Responce: 20hz-30khz, +/-3dB
Signal to noise ratio: 80dB, A-weighted
Input Sensitivity:
Low Level, 100-500 mV
High Level, 1-5v
Input Impedence:
Low Level, 10k ohms
High Level, 27 ohms
Load Impedence: 4-8 ohms allowable (4-8 ohm speakers)
Power Requirement: 14.4v DC (10.8-15.6 allowable)

As you can see the RMS wattage output of these units is only about 18W maximum.

I am planning on using the amp I have on a low power factory car radio. A low power factory radio output should be somewhere between 6-12 watts rms/channel. I will be using the "High Level" inputs for this. DO NOT connect a radio with a higher output power. If your radio says "High Power", 25W/channel, etc, do not connect to this amp. (exception: you can use the "line out" connectors, if so equipped, See Below). I don't have the connector for the high level input so i don't know what I'll do to hook up to it. I'll probably just run wires out of the amp, in lieu of the connector.

The "Low Level" inputs are for an unamplified, line level signal ("line out" connection of a radio, portable CD player, etc). Do Not connect a greatly amplified signal to these connections.

I don't know much about the "Input Sensitivity" control (pot). I'll be leaving it on "Low" for my initial test.

The grey wires are the right speaker wires and the white wires are the left speaker wires. The grey wire with a black tracer mark is the right speaker positive (+) wire. The white wire with a black tracer is the left speaker positive (+) wire.

The blue/white wire is for attachment to your radio's "Auto Ant" (power antenna) connection (usually a orange wire, I said USUALLY). If you have a power antenna on your car, simply splice into the wire running from your radio to the antenna. This blue/white wire activates a relay in the amp which, in turn, completes the circuit through the yellow (+) power wire (See Below). - Alternative 1: You could run this wire directly to your battery with a switch to turn the amp on. You would need to place an in-line fuse of 2amp. - Alternative 2: You could connect this wire to the accessory fuse in your fuse box. If this is done, again, attach a 2amp in-line fuse for extra protection. (Note: if attached to your fuse box accessory fuse, the amp will be on even if you're not using the radio. You could have a switch here also). These are just suggestions. The most common way to connect the blue/white wire is the "Auto Antenna" wire of your radio.

The large black wire is main Ground (-) for the amp. The large yellow wire is Positive (+) power to the amp. Ideally, these should be connected straight to your battery's (+) and (-) terminals. The yellow wire on your amp should have an integral in-line fuse holder with a 7amp fuse. If not, add one. Of course, the black ground wire could simply be attached under a screw, into the body of the vehicle.

Hope this helps !

The battery cables have six wires and I don't no how to install battery. I don't know what wire goes where


first of all there should only be two wires for battery(+) & (-) the six wires if it's a six cyclinder engine, then it sounds like your holding the spark plug wires, which run from your spark plugs to the distributor cap and I have no idea the make or model/year etc so I can't tell you the proper order, if your lucky they'll be numbers on the cap and that will tell you what wire plugs into where there but to which spark plug I'm not sure.

I need to figure out how to install a 2001 Hyundai Elantra


Since I don't know what you're trying to install, there's very little help I can provide except let you know you can Have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician do the work, or you can Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, illustrations and procedures, etc.

I have a timer that won't hold the program time set schedule? I have paid an electrician to come out and check to make sure i don't have any shorted out wires?? Electrician didn't find any...


Question posted under 120volt Intermatic Eh10 timer.
I do not have repairs for defective timer.
EH10 has 1 year limited warranty.

Located just below the digital display is compartment for AA battery.
Display is controlled by battery.
Replace battery, press and hold reset button for several seconds to reset timer, and try to program again.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-EH40-hot-water-heater-timer.html#EH10
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/eh10-manual.pdf

EH10 and EH40 timers are susceptible to line noise.
If timer is connected to water heater, there is no line noise. And electrician tested for shorting wires.
But when timer is connected to fan, pump, or other type of load, then interference can be a problem.
Intermatic can provide a filter.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service.aspx

Digital timers, digital water heaters, digital washer and dryer, digital water softener, digital treadmill, etc are increasingly common, yet are not protected from surge.
People protect computers and TVs, but forget other costly items.
EH10 can be affected by surge.
Install whole house surge protection:

I have this timer. The clock should run continuously in order to keep time.
The ON/OFF switch should turn the load (lights, pump, etc.) on and off.
If it doesn't, either the device is defective or it is incorrectly wired.
The wiring should be:
The 120 volt supply white wire connects to the A terminal.
The 120 volt supply black wire connects to the LINE terminal.
The load white connects to the A terminal.
The load black connects to the LOAD terminal.
The clock wires area already connected to the A and LINE terminals.
Let me know what you find.

One wire is "IN" the other is "OUT" A Thermostat works by "Breaking" the "Phase" line. It is just that simple. You usually have a pair of wires that connects, on the "Hot" side, to the always power ON line, & neutral. The Circuit, or Load, on the "Cold" side, has a a pair of contacts that open & close depending on Thermostat, in series with that conductor. Hot Contacts Cold P In-------------------><-----------------P Out

On paul 306, I don't have any info on you're system, but the old thermostat that has the smaller wires with the colors you described is a low voltage (24volt) controls. The new one you purchased sounds like it is for a system that is made for line voltage (120 volts or more) connecting this to the unit may have bad results. This also may apply to GUEST.
COACOOCHEE, the white and black coming into the box is the line, even though white should not be used for line, the connections for the other side of the thermostat is the load. The new thermostat you have be a single pole break as opposed to the old one may be a double pole. You should have a meter to check the voltage coming into the box, it may be 120 or 220 depending on what you have. Without any more info I cant be sure, but you may be able to connect the black wires to the switch and the white together. But it would be wise to test with a meter to be sure before doing this.
