If you are replacing a three way switch with a three way switch, you should only use the wires that were connected to the old switch. (Unfortunately the color coding of these wires is not universal.) Assuming you have only 2 switches, that means you only need to connect 3 wires to the switch (in addition to the ground). One wire (to be connected alone on either side of the top or bottom of the switch) either comes from the electric panel or goes to the light fixture. The other two wires (both at the top or bottom of the switch) are the "travelers" and go directly to the other switch. You can examine the other switch (the one you aren't working on) to confirm which two wires are your travelers. I hope this helps. Good luck!

I need to wire my DJ-20 Jointer back to 230 and I don't have schematic Suggestions?


Assuming you have a standard dual-voltage single-phase motor, your wire colors should be:

T1 - Blue
T2 - White
T3 - Orange
T4 - Yellow
T5 - Black
T8 - Red

For 220V wiring, you want:

Line 1 (to Black wire from switch):
Blue
Black

Line 2 (to White wire from switch):
Yellow

Tied together with a wire tie:
Red
Orange
White

This should make it so the shaft spins counter-clockwise. If you need it to spin the other direction, switch the red and black wire from the motor.

Also, don't forget to change the wiring the switch. Most likely you will need to run both the black wire and white wire through the switch.

Wires from the wall are 2(orange/white), 2(blue/white) 2(white/orange and 2(white/blue) my phone outlet which is wired has 1(black), 1(blue), 1(yellow) and 1(black. How are my wall wires to be attached...


Take a look at this image:

0d5b58e.jpg Notice that the Line 1 will typically present on pins 3&4 and Line 2 on 2&5. I would think in your case Black/Blue is Line 1 (3&4) and Yellow/Black is Line 2 (2&5).

If you have a 1 line phone and only have 1 line active, then typically blue and blue/white can be connected to the Blue and Black of your Jack. If this doesn't work, switch with the Yellow and Black.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Good Luck!
