I have installed the Utilitech timer switch # 0141224 with all of the wires connected as they are explained in the installation packet. The timer works and turns on the lights, however it only turns on 4...


Utilitec is single-pole timer.
Wiring sounds correct. Lights will blink if timer white white is connected with timer red wire. Lights will not turn ON if timer red and timer black are reversed. Green to ground is not necessary for timer operation.
Check light bulbs are operational.

Bundle of white wires are neutral wires.
Timer white wire requires neutral connection to complete circuit to timer electronics.

If bulbs are good, it is likely that loose white wire is problem, since each of the outdoor lights also needs neutral wire to complete circuit.
Having 6 white wires connected together, plus stranded wire from timer, takes a large wire nut, and that many wires can have a wire fall loose without notice. You can solder wires together, or break the group apart under different wire nuts with a jumper wire between.

Cutler hammer 60 amp non-fusible disconnect... looking for instructions or a diagram to install


You connect the two hot wires from your power source to the two lugs in the. On the other side of the disconnect you connect the two hot wires to the A/C unit to the other two lugs. You tie the neutral wires (white) together and insulate them. You ground the ground wire to the box and run a ground wire to the AC unit.

So, you should have a red, black white and ground wire on the supply side to your disconnect. The red and black are your hots from your main box to the disconnect. They go on one side of the disconnect. The units red and black go ont other side. You connect the neutrals and ground it and you are in business.

Don't guess, because you are fooling with 220 Volts AC which will knock you silly.

I have a new A O Smith B861 motor I want to


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


I am not sure what you mean by "center wire". For 230V single phase you should have 2 hot line leads (115V each) and a ground wire. Set the motor leads as the nameplate shows for the high voltage connection and attach your line leads where the two lines are indicated. If you have a 3+Grd wire drop DO NOT connect the neutral, insulate it and leave it unconnected. It will not matter which line lead connects to which motor line wire as far as rotation direction. To change rotation, if the motor allows it, you reverse the start winding leads as directed on your nameplate.

120v hot tub wiring diagram! Need to wire fro 120v! there is a red, white, black & green to connect the wire from the power plug. The power cord only has black, white & green. Which is the hot and...


I would expect your tub is either 110 or 220. Currently you are set up for 110. Based on that ... you disregard the red wire.

If your tub can run on 220, you should run it on 220 as this is more economical.

You should probably have an electrician check this out and make any changes to assure proper and SAFE operation of your tub. You are using a GFI, correct?

Trying to replace Intermatic with Utilitech inwall timers. Have 2 black wires in wall box with other switches for other lights. Which of the Utilitech 4 wires- black, red, white & green get conected to...


The wires on your new switch are intended for black = power .. white = neutral . and red = lights .. with two black wires on the old switch I am assuming that there is a bundle of white wires in that wall box, the white timer needs to join that bundle ... then you need to determine which black wire is the power from the electrical panel ( voltage tester) and connect to the black timer wire .. the red timer wire connects to the other black wire in the wall..

Trying to install a 30 amp breaker into a ge powermark gold 200


Hello, First, you need to determine if you are installing a 220 or 110 vac circuit breaker. The 220 is a "double pole" and will have (on the underside) 2 tabs for each 110 phase on your breaker box. It will also usually have a double switch tied together. A single or 110 breaker will just mount to one of the "hot bars" on the breaker box. Again, look at the underside of the breaker. Just remember you need 2 wires (usually a black and a red) for 220 and only one wire (usually black) for a 110 single. The neutral shouls tie to the neutral bar on the box (where all the white wires are connectoed to)

Of course, use extreme caution and insulating gloves when working on a circuit breaker.

Hope this helps and good luck with it. Gary

COOK TOP WIRING


 You have Red and Black HOT wires and a Green Neutral - That is 220 volts. From the wall - Black is Normally HOT and White is Neutral. That is 110 volts. If that is a typical household outlet, is will only supply a demand at about 15 amps while running at 110 volts. Your Cooktop will most likely demand somewhere around 50 amps at 220 volts. - Short Answer - You will need to have a 220 volt supply line ran to the cooktop from the breaker. Easy to do but dangerous if you are unfamiliar with high voltage.
