On a 220 set-up the green wire goes to the neutral bar where the white wires from the 110 breakers are connected. the two remaing wires, black and white go to the double breaker you will be using for power. it doesn't matter which wire goes to either breaker. at the power outlet that the dryer is the green wire goes to the ground (:-) the right hand side of this simple diagram, and it doesn't matter which of the two remaining wires hook up to the left side of the outlet (black and white)

I need a wiring diagram for connection of a 3-wire plug to my home panel - Square D, 240V, 200amp service panel.


We need to know what you are connecting. IF you are putting in a 220 outlet for stove, dryer etc. Are you in a mobile home?

How do I install a 220 volt outlet using existing wiring?


I would recommend getting an electrician. If you chose not to any mistakes you make can be a safety hazard and possibly kill somebody.

In this area we are required to use a 4 wire connection; Phase, Phase, Neutral (bare or white in the US), Earth (green in the US). You are missing the Earth connection and will need to run a wire back to your electrical panel and connect to the earth bus. Earth and Neutral are connected together at one point in your home. In older systems the Neutral was used for the earth connection as well, this is dangerous if a fault occurs. The Earth may also be called ground as could the Neutral but they are different even though they are connected connected together at one point in your system. If you have an older electrical system and do not have the appropriate Earth connections I would highly recommend hiring an electrician, electricity can cause fires and kill.

Wiring diagram for al1430R I have a old 220 volt 2 wire circut. how do i replace it with a L1430R Receptical?


you may as well run a new 4 Wire cord from the panel to this receptacle as its a 3 pole 4 wire receptacle you will need to add 2 wires a Neutral and a Safety Ground wire anyway and you will most likely need to widen the hole that the existing 2 wires protrude from,anyway as old as these wires are they need changing out anyway

I just purchased a Whirlpool Duel Dryer (Model #WED9150WW1) and hooked it up to an existing three-wire cord. The only thing that works is the light inside the dryer when you open the door. No lights on...


here is a diagram of how a three/four wire plug hooks up:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=10&newsdesk_id=5

if it is hooked up correctly, then you will need to have a multimeter and check for the 220volts on the terminal. I do not think its the door as the panel is not getting power, if you have the 220 volts on the terminal then you will need to remove the back top panel and find the wiring diagram and check for voltage to the control board. Since you did just purchase it, then they should have a repair guy that can come out and fix it. Basically, if you can verify that the machine is getting the correct voltage then there is a problem with the machine, more then likely the control board. I hope this helped Tim

You need to double check that your wiring it up correctly at the junction block on the machine. if thats correct. Most likley is that you actually only have 110 volts going to the machine it will run fine but will not HEAT. check voltage at plug or where its wired into back of unit you should have 110 volts on two out of three with the third being ground if you dont you have a bad outlet or breaker in elec.panel

If you have shorted the wires to the metal panel, then at least one wire had blown.

You need to test wires and electronic parts that may be affected. Start testing the shorted wires using a multimeter on Ohms to verify that they have continuity between the two ends of the wire.

Im putting in new stove. i have 3 wire(6 gauge)


most stoves require a 4 wire plug..red, black, white and ground..the white is needed for the 110V to work properly..ground is there for safety incase something shorts out it will blow a fuse/trip circuit breaker

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.
