SOURCE: 3 wire cook top to a 4 wire outlet

Older 3 wire connectors where Wht=Neutral Ground Return, Red=One Phase Hot, Blk=Second Phase Hot, of 220VAC stove connections.

Newer Electrical code standard has a forth wire that is bare copper for a separate safety ground return.
I suggest you but a 4 wire pig tail cable for your stove top, available at Depot or Lowes, and connect 3 wires of this 4 wire cable just like the 3 wires are now connected. The 4th bare copper safety is attached to any metal part of the stove. Find a screw you can loosen to wrap it around and tighten.

SOURCE: Leviton Single Pole Switch with Pilot Light Model 277W Box

Depends on whether you want the pilot to glow when the circuit is live (the main light is on) or to glow when the circuit is off. (The switch can be used either way, and I have used this switch in both configurations at different places.)

The wiring diagram is on the inside of the box.

In indicates that if you want the pilot light to glow when the circuit is off, then you only need two wires (the live and the return, usually colored black and white, respectively). However, you also need a ground. The instructions say that you need the ground for safety (and probably legal code) reasons, but I suspect that, without the ground, the pilot light won't work in this configuration.

However, if you want the pilot light to glow when the circuit is on, you probably need a three wire configuration (plus the ground).

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: garage kit (heater)to install on kenmore ref. #106

The kit should just be a heater that piggy backs off the 2 wires going to your cold controle or thermostat. orange and black go back on the cold control with the heater piggy backed. The kit heats the cold control to make it think its warmer in the room or box than it is so it will run long enough to keep frezer frozen.

Hello. The red and the black are the hot wires. Therefore, connect one of your conductors to the red and the other conductor to the black. Use wirenuts. The bare ground wire should be solidly attached to the new unit's green wire using a wire nut.

Need to replace the cord


If you feel the need to not part with your beloved fan, but instead fix it the solution is simply.

First make sure the cord is unplugged from the wall, electric shocks are painful, trust me.
Then get a pair of wire strippers, NOT wire cutters. If you don't have the right tools, you can strip the wires with a kitchen knife, but this is not recommended as you risk harming yourself.

If the cord is damaged along it's length, you will need to cut out the section that is damaged. Cut the wires wherever you like, cutting to either side of the damaged section.

Bare about 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7 cm) of wire on the two parts of the cord that are undamaged.

Take the positive wires from the fan side and the positive wires from the wall end and wind them together, like you are closing a twist tie.

Wrap thoroughly with black electrical tape. No wire should be visible and it must be electrical tape, as it will not catch fire.

Repeat with the other wires.




If the wires need to be replaced starting at the fan terminal, open the fan casing (having already unplugged it from the wall) and remove the wires from where they are attahed to the fan casing. Please note which is the + and - end. Cut out the damaged section of cord, bare 2 to 3 inches of cord.
wrap the end of the cord around the terminal in the fan.
and do the same with the negative end.
They should be firmly wrapped, so they will not slip off.
You shouldn't need to pthem in place, but you may if it becomes necessary.

Can't get my switch to operate the outlet just bought a 5625 switch i have two wires coming out of the wall i want to plug a light in the outlet and have the switch control the power to the outlet.


  • Turn off the power to the receptacle that will be replaced by switching off the circuit breaker in the fuse box. Check that the battery is good in a circuit tester. If not, replace the battery. Place the tester's two ends in one set of the receptacle's slots, then the other set. The light on the tester should not come on. If it does, the correct circuit breaker has not been switched off.

  • 2

    Take off the receptacle's face plate by first removing its screw. Detach the two screw securing the receptacle to the box and pull out the receptacle. Loosen the receptacle's terminal screws and pull away all wires from the back of the receptacle. Take out the receptacle (if working properly, it can be reused). If the ends of the wires are chewed up after removing them from the existing receptacle, cut them off with wire cutters. Strip off 1/2 an inch of insulation from the ends, using wire strippers. Bend them into loops with the pliers.

  • 3

    Bend the copper ends of all wires into a loop, using a pliers. Connect the white wires to the silver terminal and tighten the screw to the wires. Connect the black wires to the gold terminal and tighten the screw to the wires. Connect the bare ground wires to the ground terminal and tighten the screw to the wires.

  • 4

    Push all cables into the back of the box, followed by the receptacle. Attach the receptacle to the box with the two screws. Hold the new faceplate in position and install the screw. Turn on the power at the circuit breaker.

    Im install a newer 220 dryer.why the different plug/outlet configuration how do i wire this


    I'm assuming you mean why does it have 4 prongs instead of 3. Well the new code requires dryers to have a separate means of grounding (have its own ground wire) where as before there was not a separate ground wire, the frame of the dryer was simply jumpered to the neutral wire. The problem in doing that is if there was ever a ground fault it would not go through a separate wire to trip the breaker but the neutral wire which is already carrying current ending in a dangerous short circuit. That being said, your cable going into your outlet should have 4 wires, red black white and bare copper, your new outlet has to have the bare copper connected to the lower prong. And your dryer needs to have the jumper from the frame to neutral removed and you need to connect the green wire from your plug wire assembly to the frame of your dryer. Should your wire not have the correct number of wires your local home depot or lowes will sell a electrical wiring book that can show you exactly how to run the new wire.

    Yes , that seems high to me also .. when adding receptacles to an existing circuit, you simply connect them color to color, all the blacks together and so forth .. the black wires should be connected to the brass screw on the receptacles , and the white wire to the silver screws. please do not use the stab in connections in the receptacle, you will have a longer lasting job using the screw terminals

    Make sure you turn off the power at the power panel.
    If you are lucky you will find the following in the electrical box behind the light:
    1. A black wire that brings power from the fuse/breaker panel--connected directly to one or two other (black) wires (not to the light).
    2. A white wire from the panel--connected to one or more white wires including one to the light.
    3. A black or white (maybe taped black) wire that comes from the switch and is connected to the light.
    4. A green or bare wire connected to the box and maybe also to the light.
    If this is the case then you can run a new cable to a new electrical box in the wall for the GFI. Connect the new black wire to the Line In terminal/black wire of the GFI outlet and to the group of black wires in (1) above. Connect the new white wire to the Neutral terminal/white wire of the GFI outlet and to the group of white wires in (2) above. Connect the new green/bare wire to the Ground terminal/green wire of the GFI outlet and to the original box or ground wire. If there is a Load/Feed through wire on the GFI outlet, tape the end of it and do not use.
    If the black and white wires described in (1) and (2) above do not appear in the electrical box at the light then they are probably in the switch box and there will be only one black wire and one white wire that connect to the light on the wall. In that case you will need to run a new cable from the switch box to the new outlet. You will not be able to wire the new outlet from the existing electrical box at the light unless you do it through the switch and it will not be on unless the switch is on.

    Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
    I don't quite understand what was wired how but the wiring should be as follows:
    For a 4 prong plug and matching outlet
    1. Black wire on one end terminal of choice.
    2. Red wire on remaining end terminal.
    3. White wire only, on the center terminal
    4. Green wire on the the dryer frame or chassis terminal.

    For a 3 prong cord and matching outlet:
    1. Black wire on one terminal end of your choice.
    2. Red wire on the remaining end terminal.
    3. White wire on the center terminal.

    Always be certain that the wire in the breaker or fusebox match the wiring of your outlet.
