You give no spcification on what is is we are working with or model number or any other description of any sort. However, out of experience I'd say the 2 black go in the middle of any 6-connector switch or equipment you are connecting to. In order to assist you in a way that you do not endanger yourself or damage your equipment I wil need to know at leas the brand name eg Kelvinator, LG or whatever, the model number or any numbering/lettering on the control panel or elsewhere on the unit, and what it is you have already done in an attempt to solve your problem.

    Thankyou for clearing that up.
    Identifying your components on the heater box starting at the rear:


    1. Rear most : Hi limit fuse. Measuring resistanceover the two pins on the component has to be 0 ohm. This component cannot be repaired. If faulty - replace.

    2. Middle : High limit thermostat. If the dryer gets too hot this switch will go open circuit. With the machine cooled down measuring resistance over the 2 connectors should give 0 ohms.

    3. Foremost. Heating element. Measuring across these 2 connectors should give low resistance. Somewhere in the order of 10 ohms.

    How to connect:
    On any of the components on the heater box it does not matter which of the 2 pins the wire connects to.
    Refer to the diagram:
    On the fan shroud looking at the top right hand side of the shroud there is a small black component called a cycling thermostat with 4 connectors.(2 large, and 2 small) One of the large connectors gets wired to one of the pins on the hi limit fuse(1) at the back of the heater box.(red wire). From the hi limit fuse connect one end of the short black wire to the other pin of the fuse and the other end of the wire to one of the pins on the hi limit thermostat(2) in the middle of the heater box. The other pin of the hi limit thermostat gets connected to one of the pins on the heating element(3) at the front of the heater box via the short red wire. The other pin of the heater element gets connected to the red wire coming up from the floor of the machine.

How do I install the 4 prong electrical cable to the dryer?


I would attach the black wire to the black & yellow, white to white, red to blue & brown. The green wire is your ground wire and needs to be attached to the cabinet. On the connection where your white wire is located see if there is a copper strap that goes from the terminal block to the cabinet. If there is, you will need to remove that strap and attach the green wire to where the strap was attached to the cabinet. Hope this helps!

I need to change my 3 prong to a 4 prong


Unplug the dryer then remove the terminal block cover and disconnect the 3-prong cord from the dryer. Note that the cord has red , black, and white wires but sometimes the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can switch places. There's also a ground strap wire also connected to the center terminal together with the white (neutral) wire.

Get yourself a 4-prong cord and note that it has red, black, white, and green/yellow wires but sometimes, like the 3-pronged one, the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can also switch places. All you have to do now is connect the 3 wires in the same manner they are connected as 3-prong cord to the terminal block. The ground strap wire now just need to be connected to the remaining 4th wire, the green/yellow wire instead of the center terminal together with the white (neutral) wire. Reinstall the terminal block cover and it's done.

It can be observed that converting a 3-prong cord to 4-prong cord is merely splitting the neutral line and the ground thereby increasing the number of prongs from 3 to 4 whereas, on the other hand, converting a 4-prong cord to 3-prong cord is merely joining the neutral line (white) and the ground (green/yellow) thereby reducing the number of prongs from 4 to 3.. The links below might enlighten you further on this matter.

I have a four prong clothes dryer plug that needs to go in a three prong outlet - 220v. Any ideas?


It's either you convert the 3-prong outlet to 4-prong or the 4-prong cord to 3-prong. But the latter is easier and more feasible. Unplug the dryer then disconnect the 4-prong cord from the dryer. Note that it has red, black, white, and green/yellow wires but sometimes the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray. The red and black wires are lines L1 and L2 reversibly, meaning they can switch places, while the white and green/yellow wires are the neutral line and ground, respectively.

Get yourself a 3-prong cord and note that it has red , black, and white wires but sometimes, like the 4-pronged one, the red and black wires are both replaced by same color wire, usually gray and can also switch places. All you have to do now is connect these 3 wires in the same manner they are connected as 4-prong cord to the terminal block. The wire strapped to the dryer cabinet and connected to the green/yellow wire of the 4-prong cord wire is now left hanging. The last step is to connect this hanging strap wire to the same terminal on the terminal block (center) where the white wire (neutral) is connected and it's done.

It can be observed that converting a 4-prong cord to 3-prong cord is merely joining the neutral line (white) and the ground (green/yellow) thereby reducing the number of prongs from 4 to 3. On the other hand, converting a 3-prong cord to 4-prong cord is merely splitting the neutral line and the ground thereby increasing the number of prongs from 3 to 4.

I have a three way switch in a lamp, one red wire one black wire and one blue wire coming out off the switch,how do I wire off the switch?


Black is the AC power into the switch, and the others are the switched power leads out. Take a close look at the switch housing and you might see small markings reading L1 and L2 by the red and blue leads.

To wire the switch, use a pressure connector (wire nut) to connect the black lead to the incoming AC power. On a polarized line cord, where the plug has one prong wider than the other, the hot side is the narrow prong. The neutral side, which connects to the white wires from the lamp sockets, is the wide prong, and the cord usually has a ridge molded in.

The red and blue wires go to the sockets. (This kind of switch is usually used in three-socket lamps, so I assume that's what you have.) The red lead should connect to the black wire from one socket, and the blue lead to the black wires from the other two. The usual sequence is power off, L1 (red) on, L2 (blue) on, L1 and L2 on. So as you turn the switch (or press the button in a push switch) you get one light, then two, then all 3 on.

Make sure all your connections are good and tight with UL approved connectors and there are no exposed bare wires, and you should be good to go.

Do you have a wiring diagram for a 50 amp male plug using 6-3 wire?


The configuration of the plug may vary by design but the way it is wired is the same no matter the plug configuration. Using 6/3 wire with no neutral white wire you simply connect the the Green ground to the ground on the male plug and the black and red wires to the other two plugs. Does not matter which. The is a 3 prong male plug. If you are using 6/3 with ground then connect the ground to the green ground plug, the white the direct opposite side as the ground and the red & black to the X & Y plugs, either one. This is a 4 prong male plug. If you are using a NEMA locking plug the lug that is bent is the ground. Connect the green ground wire there and the two other wires to the other lugs. Does not matter which one as each is carrying 120 volts. Look at the photo below. The plug on the left is a typical 3 prong plug. Notice the ground is connected to the top U shaped ground connection. The remaining 2 hots are connected to the two other lugs. On the right you see a 4 prong plug. You have the extra lug for the neutral. 9e28e8d.png

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...

REPLACING DRYER 4 PRONG PLUG


This is common issue. Due to some building codes the 3-prong configuration is no longer used in homes. The wiring is similiar with one exception. The 4-wire plug uses an additonal (WHITE) NEUTRAL wire.

Here's a brief explanation of how the plugs are configured:

Dryer 3 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC

Dryer 4 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC
WHITE - NEUTRAL

BOTH plugs provide the SAME source voltages to your appliance:

220 VAC - provided across the RED and BLACK leads are what drives your heating circuitry.
120 VAC - usually tapped of the BLACK wire is used to run the drive motor and timer on MOST dryers.

The wire terminal block in the back of the dryer should have a black, white, and red wire running to it from the dryer wiring harness. With the 4 prong plug, simply attach the BLACK, WHITE and RED wires at the terminal block ensuring that you match the RED and BLACK wires as they are configured and attach the WHITE wire at the remaining terminal lug. Make sure you screw them all down securely. Attach the remaining GREEN wire to chassis (dryer frame) ground. I hope ths helps you.
