How to hook up electrical? 220v single phase? What color wires on which connections of the plug?


Identify the prongs. If you have wired a 110-volt fixture or plug, then you are aware that the different prongs connect to different colors of wires. The same principle holds true for 220-volt plugs, and this is very important to keep from tripping the circuit breaker. A three-prong plug will connect to two colored wires that each supply 110 volts and a bare copper wire which is the ground. One of these colored wires will be black, while the other one should be red, white, or blue. The four-prong plugs connect to a black and a red wire that each supply 110 volts, a white neutral wire, and a bare copper ground wire.

Can I replace the plug *only* on this range with a 3-prong plug? I believe I need a copper strap to ground from the neutral wire on the back of the range to the frame, but I want to know if it's OK to


When you buy a new appliance that needs a cord, usually the screw that connects the neutral (white wire) is bridge with the cabinet or ground,with a piece of copper, that should be removed when you are going to install a 4 prong cord and the green from the cord goes to ground or chassis.
Neutral and ground have the same potential in normal condition.
Since 4 prong is safer than 3 prong, and is required to meet code,
I suggest replacing the female plug for a 4 prong instead.

Connected ground wire to base. A hole is provided. Should I connect that ground green wire to neutral which is is in the middle or ground green to base, which I did.

I do not got a dryer to hook up,just need some information on how to hook up a three prong male plug one wire is black,white,***** copper one. Iwould like to know how or which prong they go to??


Use a multimeter and check the ground connection - Earth which must be connected to the top center pin. The copper could be the phase and can be connected to the left and the other one to the right. Use a tester or continuity to confirm as the phase goes through the switch.

License plate light do not stay on,the bulbs are not blown,the vehicle in qusetion is a 2007 chevy tahoe


Hello,

If you notice should be a couple small screws to remove lens to get to bulb. A lot of times it just a loose bulb or the prongs on end of bulb that hits the copper connection. First take bulb out, replace it, even though it works, but new one would have nice new connection, and before putting it in, spray inside where bulb goes with electrical cleaner can get at any auto supply, then put in. Should work. On a 2007, it is unlikely there is a ground problem, but if so, after trying this, get back to me and I will tell you how to check wires and what to do. NOW understand sometime even though the bulb is not blown it is not getting a good connection from bottom of bulb to copper prongs on female side insert. I do not thing it is wiring as said earlier.

Hi.i got a new dryer and its 3 prong but the house is 4 prong so i got a 4 prong and im not sure where the wires go. The diagram shows L1 N L2 than the green ground but the new 4 prong only has green red...


Ok. Let's simplify this for you. First and foremost you will want to remove the copper strip that goes from your center cord post the to case/cabinet of the dryer. This is to seperate your neutral and grounds within the machine. Some models used a green jumper wire instead of a copper strip but the idea is the same.
Now on the new cord the green (ground) wire is supposed to go to the connection point the copper strip used to go to on the cabinet. The white wire (neautral) is supposed to go to the center terminal connection on the terminal block and the red and black (L1 and L2) wires can go to either of the outside terminals.
The only difference in a four wire cord application is the segregation of the electrical neutral and the ground wires.
Good luck, hope this helps you!

Wiring conia ccd4501


There could be two situations for you. For the wall outlet, you may have a four prong plug or a three prong plug. For a three prong plug the outlet has three prongs and the terminals inside match up with these prongs. The two slanted prongs on the top are the hot terminals and the red and black wires get connected to these (order doesn't matter but keep the wires matched up with the terminals on the same sides). The white wire is connected to the "L" shaped prong, the third lower prong. The bare copper wire is just bent out of the way. At the dryer for the three prong there will be three terminals 2 hot and one neutral. Usually, your dryer cord will have the neutral as the middle wire, but pay attention if your cord wires are color coded (where white will be your neutral wire). At the dryer there is a terminal which is connected to the frame of the dryer by a piece of metal. This is your neutral, connect your neutral wire from your cord up to this. The other two wires get connected to the other two terminals (order doesn't matter but keep the wires matched up with the terminals on the same sides). For the four prong its very similar but there is a small change, that bare copper wire is now used. The terminals on the wall outlet will line up with the prongs. The two vertical terminals on the left and right are your red and black wires. The "L" shaped prong is your white wire. Now the fourth prong, the one shaped like a semi circle is the terminal you connect that bare copper wire up to that is your ground. At the dryer for the cord (If its a four prong cord your wires should definitely be color coded). The terminal that had a connection to the dryer frame now will no longer have one. The terminal thats connected to the frame you connect the green wire to. The terminal that was connected to the "green wire terminal' is now the neutral terminal and your white wire gets connected to it. The other two terminals are where your connect your last two wires.

Brand new dryer threw braker twice, then no heat and timer stopped working. Electrician tightened connections on wires to dryer settings dial, had heat for one load, then same as before. Replacement dryer...


might want to check your dryer outlet. If the terminals are loose in there it could cause you problems. If your dryer plug is a 4 prong you might be loosing one of your 220v legs due to a short . As the dryer runs the wires and connections will heat up and expand , if there is a faulty wire or connection then it may loose connection after a load. could be quite dangerous and a very possible fire risk so i would check it out ASAP . if the outlet is old they sell for about $20 at you local home depot or lowes home improvement. for a 3 prong plug you need to hook up the black and white wires on the brass screws and the copper ground wire to the green screw. in a 4 prong application you hook up the black and red wires to the brass screws, the whit wire t the silver screw and the copper ground wire to the green screw .

If your new dryer is supposed to be a 4 prong plug and you have it with a 3 prong cord then you will run in to issues . The difference being a 4 prong electric dryer is a dual voltage unit where it needs both 220v and 115v to operate correctly, where a 3 prong dryer only has 220v and the earth ground. if your not familiar or comfortable with electricity please call a qualified electrician to come hand handle the work. if not done correctly it can cause fires or possible electrocution

Wire a 4 prong l dryer box


First with any electrical repair, safety must be observed. Be sure the circuit is turned off at the breaker panel (check wires with a voltage tester)
quality gloves and eye protection should be worn.

Typically the terminals or screws in the plug will be color coded (2 brass, 1 aluminum & 1 green)

The black and the red are both hots and can be connected to either of the brass terminals.

Red - hot = Brass terminal
Black - hot = other Brass terminal
White - neutral = aluminum terminal
bare copper - ground = green terminal

I hope this helps...
