First you should know that the light circuit is costructed with thing wires and it controled with a low Ampers fuse since the lights need low load.
If you trying to get power out from light it should be also very low load ( watts)
Now for the wire you should take one wire red and one wire black.
You understant that you are trying to something that is out of the safety standards and this is very risky.
I advice to check the load ( watts) of the equipment you want to give the power, also can you describe in litle more details like what is your problem and what is works very slowly in order to be a litle more specific with your case since we fill a litle danger with what you trying to do.

How can I obtain a service manual for KitchenAid microwave KHMS1850S,need wiring diagram to interlock switches.


Pulled up a schematic on this will try and help the first pic looks as though you removed the secondary switch the bottom one if so that is the wrong switch it should be a normally open switch that one is normally closed this switch goes up top on the other side of the primary switch the one with 3 terminals, look at the second pic the switch with 3 terminals that red wire in the wrong spot the skinny orange goes there the switch I just told you to put up top the red goes to one terminal the white and brown middle form the 3 terminal goes to the other terminal, the blue/white and blue go to the bottom switch this is a normally open switch if you don't know how to read a switch look at the switch look at com follow the line to where it stops if it is NO=normally open, NC=normally closed your primary switch is in the right spot you want the switch next to it to be NC and the bottom switch NO it blew the 20 amp fuse once you correct the switches and wiring and put in a new fuse if you have no power then it blew past the fuse and burnt out the filter board happens some times about 60 bucks let me know if this helps

INtermatic Model ST01 timer is to be used in a 3 way switch arrangement. The unit works in one switch position but fails to allow the light to turn on in the other switch position. Several other switches...


ST01C timer replaces one 3-way switch and the other 3-way switch remains.
The ST01C timer does not work exactly like a 3-way switch.
When the timer blue and red wires are connected together, they reverse whatever program is in effect.
When the timer is wired for single-pole, the red wire is capped off. When timer is wired for 3-way, the red wire is used to reverse the timer, thus causing the 3-way effect.
So if timer is ON, and red and blue wires are put together, the timer turns OFF.
That's why the remaining 3-way switch has to be rewired.
The remaining 3-way switch is rewired so it will connect and disconnect the red and blue wires, causing the timer to reverse program each time, and creating 3-way effect.
Other requirements of ST01C is that the black wire must connect to Hot wire, and the blue wire must always connect to Load. This means that you have to correctly pick which 3-way switch to replace, where the hot wire from breaker arrives.
Open following link for wiring diagram showing how to wire for 3-way:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C
All 3-way timers require rewiring second 3-way switch to create 3-way effect.

I have a whirlpool stove and one of the burner doesn't work but the light on switch works. What could be the problem and how can I fix. Help pls.


1.TURN THE POWER OFF TO YOUR STOVE! In most houses, the electric stove is on it's own circuit breaker. If you are in an older home, you're probably lucky you even have a stove...just kidding! If you had your kitchen updated, every electrician should have wired your stove to its own circuit breaker. Shut off the circuit breaker.
2.Remove all the burners and catch plates under them. You are going to lift the top of your stove up. Once you've done that, see what kind of receptacle you have. You'll now have to shop around to find the part. The local appliance store charged us way too much. Lowe's or Home Depot might not have your parts, or they might. Amazon might have your part and if they don't, they will direct you to someone that will. We could have saved half the purchase price if we'd gone there in the first place.
*A quick note* The receptacle is wired to the switches at the front of the stove. They complete the entire circuit, so that is the only thing you need to worry about--from the switch to the receptacle.
After the stove top is lifted, you will find another tray under it. If the wires from the receptacles go under the tray to the "on" switches at the front of
your stove, you'll have to lift this tray up as well. Remove the tray and any other panels you need to in order to get to the switches.
3.Follow the wires, which should be color-coded for that stove top burner, until you find the switch it hooks to. If you have not purchased the parts yet, go ahead and disconnect the wire from the switch and pull the receptacle from it's aluminum cradle. You'll want these parts to take with you to find their replacements.
*note* Your new wire receptacle should consist of the housing for the burner to fit snug into, and two wires that extend from the other end. Electricity works in a circle. If the circle is broken, you have a short and that is where the spark comes from- your electrical current was trying to reach the other side and sparked to get there.
If you do have the parts, compare them to the old ones to make sure they are the same. Nothing worse than spending time on a repair with the wrong parts.
If you have the RIGHT parts, find the correct end of your wires and just slide it over the terminal at the switch. They might be the screw types. Whatever you have, connect it. It does not matter which one went where. As long as you are using the empty wire terminals you just uncovered with the old wires, you are completing the circle.
*Note* I have seen some receptacle kits that do not give you enough wire and require you to splice wires together. Not only is that a bad idea, but does not conform to electrical codes requirements and could result in fire. If the new equipment did not come with long enough wire to reach all the way from receptacle to switch, purchase a longer wire at your local hardware store. For a few pennies more you could be saving your family's lives.
4.Once you have hooked the receptacle ends to the switch harness, tie down the wires alongside the wire bundle until you get to the end.
5.Attach your burner receptacle to the aluminum clamp.
6.Attach your aluminum clamp to the stove top.
7.Screw down all the pieces you removed- anything covering the switches and the bottom tray. Put down your stove top and put in place all the shields and burners. Turn the circuit breaker back on for your stove and try it out!8_10_2012_8_42_55_am.jpg

Hello I just bought a Kenmore Electric Range and I am now installing it in my kitchen. I am attempting to connect the power to the range. I have a large romex looking wire coming from the house wall....


Are you trying to connect your range to a 3-wire source, using a 4-wire cord? I'm a little confused on your symptoms. Normally you have a 2 HOT leads and a NEUTRAL/GROUND (3-wire) in older homes. In newer homes you have 2 HOT leads, a separate NEUTRAL and a separate GROUND (4-wire).

The following link explains the difference between the two configurations and how they should be correctly wired:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

New construction homes built after the year 2000 REQUIRE the use of a 4-wire plug and are usually readily wired at the receptacle to accommodate. If your existing receptacle already has a 3-wire configuration you do not need to re-wire it, however. The easiest solution would be to purchase a 3-wire power cord that matches the receptacle you have.

Read through the link provided and post back and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Would this work or burn out fans? Amps on one fan is 1.5 and the other is 5 amps I want to run a 12/2 wire from the panel and to the duplex switch and tie it into a 12/3 wire that goes to switch to...


Tell me what you are wanting to accomplish. Are you wanting to run each fan off a separate switch in the same duplex box? The reason I ask is because you are using 12/3 wire to the fans. If you are just going to have 2 switches then you are only going to have power to each fan from each switch. Therefore there is no need to run 12/3 wire. 12/2 is all that is needed and you would simply tie the fan and light wires to that one power source at the light/fan. Now if you are wanting to have a switch for the light and another switch for the fan at each location then that will take 4 switches. You can buy double stack switches and have 4 switches in a double gang box. Is this new construction or old? Please explain what you are wanting and I will be more than happy to explain how to wire it.

Electric ranges are normally 220V and that goes with what you have. The maytag guy has nothing to do, so give him a call. It may be a problem you can't ouch anyway since it is new and under warranty.If it is wired correctly, which it appears to be, a service call will be covered. Good luck.

In that case the outlet your using is pushing out too much electricity. Try calling your local electric company for help or a professional electric repair man.

BRAVETTI CONVECTION OVEN MODEL K5345H


open by unscrewing screws on back and along left side bottom. this lets you swing up the cabinet showing the electrics. the red power line going to the timer is held in place by a metal wire holder that is riveted to the base. wire has a white sleeve between its insulation and the metal wire holder. slide wire and sleeve out to the side of the holder. slide sleeve to side along wire, revealing fuse. need a solder iron and an electronic parts store to get replacement fuse and solder it in. reassemble.


the fuse is a resistor that blows when unit is getting hot. use lower resistance fuse or just hardwire the power line straight through, no fuse, but watch for overheating (not likely) and maybe use breaker outlet
