No stove wires hooked up to neutral


The older electric hookups for ranges used only the 2 hot wires and a ground. Somewhere on the range the neutral and the ground should be connected together. This connection is no longer accepted by the National Electrical Code, but no one is going to force you to change the wiring unless you change the range.
Where is the ground wire attached? Some ranges had a metal jumper to connect the neutral to the ground. Your oven element is 240 volt only. It does not need a neutral. The ground/neutral wire is for some of the controls and the clock.

Can you get me a diagram on electrical hookup?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

I do not know if you have a 3 wire or 4 wire connection. For a 3 wire connection you need 15 AMPS at the breaker box. For a 4 wire connection you need 30 AMPS at the breaker box.

Three wire hookup. Center wire goes to N, the other two wires are hot. It makes not difference witch of these two wires go to L1 or L2. The ground goes to the cabinet.

Check the voltage - With a volt meter between L1 & N = 220V, L2 & N = 220V, L1 & L2 = 240. These readings are general. You may get something like 210V instead of 200V

Trying to change plug from a 3pronge hookup to a 4.The dryer only has 3 wires to hook up extenstion plug has white,red,black,green ...what do i do


It is your responsibility
 To contact a qualified electrical installer.
 To be sure that the electrical connection is adequate and in
conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70-latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.
The National Electric Code requires a 4-wire supply
connection for homes built after 1996, dryer circuits involved
in remodeling after 1996, and all mobile home installations.
A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:
National Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park,
Quincy, MA 02269.
 To supply the required 3 or 4 wire, single phase, 120/240 volt,
60 Hz., AC only electrical supply (or 3 or 4 wire, 120/208 volt
electrical supply, if specified on the serial/rating plate) on a
separate 30-amp circuit, fused on both sides of the line. A
time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended. Connect
to an individual branch circuit. Do not have a fuse in the
neutral or grounding circuit.
 Do not use an extension cord.
 If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the
ground path is adequate.
Electrical Connection
To properly install your dryer, you must determine the type of
electrical connection you will be using and follow the instructions
provided for it here.
 If local codes do not permit the connection of a neutral ground
wire to the neutral wire, see "Optional 3-wire connection"
section.
 This dryer is manufactured ready to install with a 3-wire
electrical supply connection. The neutral ground wire is
permanently connected to the neutral conductor (white wire)
within the dryer. If the dryer is installed with a 4-wire electrical
supply connection, the neutral ground wire must be removed
from the external ground conductor screw (green screw), and
secured under the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the
terminal block. When the neutral ground wire is secured under
the neutral terminal (center or white wire) of the terminal block,
the dryer cabinet is isolated from the neutral conductor.
 A 4-wire power supply connection must be used when the
appliance is installed in a location where grounding through
the neutral conductor is prohibited. Grounding through the
neutral is prohibited for (1) new branch-circuit installations,
(2) mobile homes, (3) recreational vehicles, and (4) areas
where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
conductors.

I have a malibu ML 88T low voltage transformer. It was working fine and I saw the manual on/off and turned it, (i should have left it alone). The lights did not come on, so I turned the manual on/off...


You can do it yourself.
Anybody that knows 'hardwired' and observed timer is making humming sound can wire up a timer.
If M88T timer dial is not rotating, but power pack is making humming sound, then that says timer is receiving power but clock motor has gone bad.
There are no replacement clock motors for power packs.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

To wire a new timer:
Click circuit breakers until the humming sound turns off.
Turn breaker back on to confirm that humming sound is associated with that breaker.
Buy a tester at local hardware and ask them how to use it.
Tester will give you assurance that power is off when connecting new timer.

Outdoors: put down dry boards to stand on, never stand on bare soil or wet/damp surface, don't touch anything metal and don't hold metal screwdriver in mouth while working on electric circuit. Wear gloves if you want. And don't sweat.
With 120volt circuit, as long as you are not grounded, which means that you are not touching soil, or anything that grounds back to soil, then you will not get electrocuted. You can get shocked only if power is still turned on at circuit breaker, and it will be surprising, but it won't kill you as long as you're not grounded. All electricity goes back into the earth to complete circuit.

Open the box where timer is hardwired.
Use tester on black wire. To confirm power is off.
Typical 120volt circuit: Black wire is Hot and carries voltage. White wire is neutral and completes the circuit back to ground. Bare copper wire is ground and serves as redundant safety.

Old 88T timer will be wired black-to-black, white-to-white, and green-to-bare copper.
Take photo of wiring to avoid confusion. Post photo on flickr and add a comment with link to photo for another pair of eyes on situation.
Cut off end of new timer wire, strip insulation with knife and attach wires same way previous timer was connected.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-twist-electric-wire.html

To install ordinary 120Volt outlet so timer can plug in: Buy outlet from hardware: Black hot wire connects to brass-colored screw, white neutral wire connects to silver-colored screw, bare ground wire connects to green-colored screw.

Don't hardwire the disposal. That's against plumbing and electrical code. House will not pass inspection.

That being said.
Electricians don't guess, they test.

Note which wires were connected on same screw.
Do not untwist any wires..
Separate individual wires for testing.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. Hot connects to Brass screw on ordinary receptacle.
Hot is identified.
Test Hot to each other wire, except bare ground.
Tester lights up on Neutral. Neutral connects to Silver screw on ordinary receptacle.

Load wire goes to disposal.
To put power to Load, then Load wire also connects to brass screw along with Hot wire.

The missing terminal would be a 'ground' usually apart from the other two. The blue should be hot(black on reinstall)yellow neutral(white on install) ground is green.Older electrics dealt with two wire hookups. Grounds connect to the motor metal body proper.

Changing from 3 to 4 wire hookup on a electric dryer:
Power cord help for 3 & 4 prong dryer cords
This is an example of a three wire connection dryer cord hookup. Notice that there is a ground strap connected from the common center terminal to the frame of the terminal block. Place the center wire of the cord on the center terminal [ one with the ground ******** it ] and the other two wires will be placed on the outer terminals and it doesn't matter which wire goes right or left. Get the center wire of the cord right and you are in business.
This is an example of the 4 wire dryer cord hookup. Notice that the ground strap has been removed from the terminal block frame and folded back onto the center terminal for storage. You can see the colors of the other hookups. TIP: White always to the middle.
