SOURCE: no 'green' light on bacl of my 'old' Vivitar 285

Then I'd say it's a reasonably sure thing that the green light is just burned out, The lights are supposed to be off at first, then red when there's a partial charge, then green when there's a full charge, then flashing between red and green when the "battery saver" kicks in. If you're seeing off, then red, then off, then flashing red, then that means everything in the charging circuit is working perfectly, there's just no green light.

Can you put a aussie 240 volt plug on an US battery charger


Look at the specs on the label, if it says that the charger is capable of taking a 240v input then you can change the plug and use it at 240v with no problem. If it says 120v then you won't be able to, you'll want to use a transformer or some other 240 to 120v supply.

I need a wiring diagram for hayward pool filter model K48m2n11b3


Are you trying to wire a pool pump?
I found manuals at the Haywood site > I saw nothing for K48m2n11b or anything close to that number
http://www.haywardnet.com/inground/products/manuals.cfm

But lets work on the problem and see if I can give you some help:

After opening a few manual and searching for the word 'volt' and 'pump' ... each manual talks about 'pumps' generically, as if the pump is a separate purchase item.

Lower down on the manual page they have a list of pool pumps. A search for the word 'volt' inside the pump manuals says 'match supply voltage to motor nameplate voltage.'

As you know, each electric device has a label showing voltage, wattage, etc. Your pump should show 120Volts or 240V. I didn't see any mention of 3 phase wiring, so I assume your Haywood pump runs on typical residential wiring? And that you are not using 440Volt or 3 phase.

The 120Volt pump will have a black, white and bare ground.
The 240Volt pump will probably have a black, white, red and bare ground
The 240Volt pump could have a black white and bare ground

First the 120V pump:
The 120Volt line from your breaker box will have a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire and bare ground >>> this wire connects color-to-color with pool pump

Next the 240V pump with black, white, red and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from your breaker box can have the same 4 wires, in which case they connect color-to-color
b) The 240Volt line from your breaker box could have a black white and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the white goes to red, the bare coppers are connected, the white pump wire is capped off and not used. If pump does not operate with this wiring, another line from the breaker with wires that match pump might be necessary.

The 240V pump with black white and bare ground
a) The 240Volt line from breaker can have black, white, red and bare ground, in which case the black goes to black, the red goes to white, bare grounds are connected, the white wire is capped off
b) The 240Volt line from from breaker can have black white and bare ground, and this connects color-to-color to the pump

HOW do you know if line from breaker is 120V or 240V?
If you know which breaker wire is connected to, then it's easy
If you do not know which breaker
-turn off power
-separate wires so they can be tested
-use ordinary tester
-stand on dry boards
-tape tester leads to sticks so hands are away from power

-turn on power
-test each wire to bare copper
-tester lights up on Hot wire
-120V line will have 1 Hot wire
-240V line will have 2 Hot wires

Installed new upper & lower elements & thermostats, only top htr works


If original problem was caused by sediment burning out lower element, did you clean sediment out of water heater when changing lower element?
Two element water heaters are 240V.
Thermostats cut power on one hot wire, but 240V circuit has 2 hot wires. So lower element has power at all times coming from the red wire.
1) Use ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> test each screw of lower element to bare metal part of water heater. Each screw should show 120V. If there is no power, then upper thermostat is defective, screw on upper thermostat is loose, or red wire between upper and lower parts of water heater is bad.
2) Remove wires from lower element. Use continuity tester or multimeter set to ohms <> test across both screws of element to see if power travels through element <> if element is bad, then continuity tester will not light up and multimeter will show no ohms. Put wires back on element after test.
3) Start with cold water in tank. Turn on water heater & upper element will turn on. Put ear on side of tank to hear if upper element is heating water. Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 240V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 0V.
Put ear on side of tank. When upper element turns off: Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 0V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 240V. If this test shows 0V and 0V, then upper thermostat is bad. If reading is correct, immediately move to next test.

4) Turn temp on lower thermostat to 150. Using ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> Test across both screws of lower element. If there is no reading, and you know element is good from step 2, then lower thermostat is bad, or wire is bad between lower element and lower thermostat, or wire is bad between lower thermostat and top part of heater.
5) Test across both lower thermostat screws, should read 240V.If this test is good, it means wires are good. Put jumper wire across both screws of lower thermostat, and test lower element again. If element finally turns on with jumper wire, then lower thermostat is bad.

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.

Seeking the CWL1420P wiring and assembly instruction sheet


dedbf2b.jpg

The sell sheet for this product shows this is a NEMA-14 Twist lock plug rated for 120V - 240V wiring.

To wire the plug:
G is for ground W is for Neutral
The hot wires connect to X and Y
This is simple for 240V ... your red and black wires connect to X and Y, the ground to G, and the white neutral to W

For 120V circuit, the G ground and W white neutral remain the same. I think the black hot wire is X.

A simple tester in the receptacle can confirm this before plugging in the twist-lock

I just installed a new T104M and still have no power to my pool motor. Power comes in at 240v but nothing out. This happened with both the old one and now the new one. I wired red to 1 in and 2 out and...


Looks like you wired everything up OK on the timer. Using a Multimeter with an AC range of more than 240V, or an AC tester, check for voltage at terminals 3&4. Make sure the clock is set to the on position. You should get a reading. Go down the line to the pump, and check voltage on the pump to make sure there's power from the timer to the pump. If you have voltage from timer to pump, sounds like the pump is not working. If the pump motor has a starting capacitor, it may be that. They are replaceable.
Please be careful with that 240 voltage.

I am trying to connect my new pool motor. I have 3 wires coming out of the box. a black one 120v a white one 120v and a copper (ground). How do I test if it has 240v? How can I connect the motor so works....


Most probable cause is that you have the black and white on the same phase, and that's why you have 120 volts from black to ground and from white to ground, but 0 across black and white. If the motor ran on 120 volts, why are you connecting it to 240?

In any event, in order to get 240 volts, move the white to a circuit breaker that is directly above or below the breaker that feed the black wire. You are supposed to use a 2 pole breaker for 240 volts anyway

Compatability with US 240v 60HZ 1phase wiring?


It should work OK The US system is 240V single phase (split) into two 120v branches. Aussi system is hot on both sides, with a center ground (a virtual ground system) Connect the 2 main wires (usually brown and blue) to the 240 (black and red), and connect the grounds (Green/yellow to green), and leave the neutral wire off.
