There are two types of power cords; 3-prongs and 4-prongs. Indicate which type your rmachine has and post it back. Also indicate the colors of the wires that came off. You don't have to accept or reject and rate this post to add information or post comments and follow-up questions should you need further assistance. But accepting a solution does not stop you from communicating with an expert. You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.

How to set up??


First, you have to make sure that the thermostat is set to conventional and not heat pump. Then, the best way to know where the wires go, is to mark what terminals the came off of from the old stat. If that isn't possible, the next best thing to do is go to the unit and see where each wire goes. This is because the wire colors are not exactly set to any certain standard. It's at the discretion of the person installing the system in the first place to use whatever colors they like, to work any part of the system the choose.
The basics/commonly used colors are:
Red- R terminal- Power
Green- G terminal- Fan
White- W terminal- Heat
Yellow- Y terminal- Cooling
Blue- C terminal- Common
Heat Pump Thermostats use more wires, such as:
Orange or Black - O/B terminal- Reversing Valve
Brown- W2/Aux terminal- Heat

My suggestion would be that your black wire is for your cooling(Y), and all other colors wire up to the corresponding terminals. There are many systems that are ran only by 2 and 4 wire setups, therefore, it's possible that whoever ran your wire initially did not have a yellow wire in the strand. Also, if there is a yellow wire in the strand(possible 7wire strand), it could also be that the wire had a short and they switch the wires to bypass the short. Hope this helps and Happy Holidays!

I am installing honywell thermostat rth111/rth221 old thermostat has two wires that are yellow and need to know where to hook up


First things first. What type of system? Heat only, boiler or furnace? Central cooling.
Do NOT take wires off the old thermostat yet, or mark the color wire, to the terminal letter. Most times W,Y,G,R, terminals and maybe even a C terminal.

Your new thermostat should have the same letters. Sometimes they mix up color wire with terminal letters...... example (yellow wire to w terminal)
Also turn off power to equipment it is controlling. It is not high volts but you can short out the transformer. Hook uo wire color to same letter terminal on old stat, to new stat. Thats it.

I cant remember how to hook up the speakers to the system


Speakers use a cable that consist of 2 insulated wires. The two wires are identified by one or more ways: 1) one wire may be golden colored and the other white or silver colored, 2) the insulation on one of the wires may have a raised ridge, or 3) the insulation on one wire may have some marking along the surface where the other will not

The terminals on speakers and terminals for the speakers on the amplifier will both have a (-) and (+) symbol for each cable (one for each wire). I like to assign the (+) terminal to the golden colored wire or the insulation with the rib or marking on it, and the (-) terminal to the white or silver colored wire or on the smooth or unmarked insulation. It does not matter which wire you assign to which terminal - as long as the (+) and (-) terminals of the speaker connects to the (+) and (-) terminals on the speakers of the amplifier (you should see to it that they do not get crossed so that the (+) of the speaker is connected to (-) terminal for the speakers on the amplifier).

Connect each speaker location to the corresponding speaker terminal on the amplifier (the front right speaker to connect to the front right speaker terminals on the amplifier - continue until all speakers are connected). Failure to connect correctly will make fading front to back and balance left and right work unexpectedly.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Have to replace the warmer switch on my bunn model b10-b


Looking at the back of the switch:

If you have an original style switch:
Black (hot) wire on left terminal
White wire on right terminal
3rd wire (color varies) middle terminal.

If you have a new style switch:
Black (hot) wire on left terminal
White wire on LOWER right terminal
3rd wire (color varies) UPPER right terminal.

I have a 3 prong to change to a 4 prong cord on my dryer


The following link explains how to correctly install a 220VAC appliance cord to your dryer:

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

Read through the instructions provided and let me know if you have questions. This advice is how to convert from a 3 prong to a 4 prong appliance cord. You simply match the corresponding colors of the wires on the cord you intend to attach to the matching colors at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. If the wires are not color coded at the terminal block, the outer two wires (left and right) are the HOT leads, the center wire is the Neutral. Make sure the neutral ad ground wires remain independent of each other in a 4 wire configuration. The green wire should be terminated on a ground lug on the equipment cabinet while the neutral is terminated at the terminal block.

Let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this help you.

My problem is....On my new Honeywell RTH230B thermostat the color code is Rh, Rc, W,Y and G. My wire colors are red, orange, blue, white and black. I can obviously match up 4 of them but where the heck...


First you are using abnormal wire colors for a furnace. Second.... if you have an air conditioner hooked up to this furnace, you will need to install a jumper wire between rh & rc. I am assuming this is a natural gas furnace. Usually the red wire to R terminals. Usaully the white wire to the W terminal. Take the door off of the furnace. Find the thermostat wire connection in the furnace. What ever color wire is on the R terminal in the furnace should hook to the R terminal on the t/stat. Whatever color is on the W in the furnace goes on the W on the t/stat. Whatever color is on the G terminal in the furnace goes to G on the t/stat. And the Y in the furnace to the Y on the stat. and the G in the furnace to the G on the stat. Most applications use only the R, W, G, & Y ( always put the jumper wire between Rh & Rc)
Good Luck

Electrical cable for the power pulled out of machine


Ground wire will be GREEN or bare copper wire. White neutral wire will go to chrome colored AC terminal. BLACK(or maybe brown or other darker color) hot wire goes to brass colored terminal.

If terminals on dishwasher are not chrome(white metal) and brass(yellow metal) colored, then you must look for other ID on Dishwasher side. If terminals or wires on dishwasher side are not a different color, then it does not matter which of the two AC wire, neutral or hot, goes to which. The ground wire is the safety wire against against shock from fault hot wire getting to chassis of washer.

Humming sounds more like dishwasher is in the middle of a timing cycle, but I could be wrong and it is sometimes best to find someone to look at your washer when electrical wires are being hooked up.

Im setting up a thermostat and im confused about the color wiring


How many wires do you have and what color are they?
Red is power to the thermostat, White generally goes to W1, yellow to cooling Y terminal, Green to G terminal. If you have different colors the set-up may be a little different. You can check at the unit which should have a terminal board which would also indicate which wires go to which terminals.
