If there are only two terminals on the motor the only connection would be one leg of the 230 volt supply on one terminal and the other leg on the other terminal.
The switch must be double pole, double throw. That is two terminals on top to connect the two supply wires and two terminals on bottom (that are both open when the switch is OFF and closed when the switch is ON) connect to the only two motor terminals. The ground wire grounds the motor green wire, the switch green screw (terminal) and any green wire on the supply wire.

Where do the wires go when i am wiring a garbage disposal using a tw o pole toggle switch


The garbage disposal shoud have three wires a green wire goes to ground,

the white wire is neutral, and the black wire is your hot. at the switch, the white

neutral wire feeds straight to the garbage disposal as does the ground, many

times the switch will either have two screws one gold and one silver and the

green is designated as ground. hot goes to the gold screw and the black wire

coming from your disposal goes to the other screw. make sure to turn off power

before working on electrical wires check with voltage meter, its not like working

on your car, if shocked it can be fatal, if unsure handle wires with insulated tools

or gloves. good luck!

I am installing a ge #15070 basic timer and there are 3 wires. Which wire do I attach to the ground?


GE 15070 timer does not have ground wire.
I assume this timer is double insulated, just like some power tools and electronics only have two prong plug.
Leave bare ground wire attached to other bare grounds in the box, and shove grounds to back of box.
I have one of these timers installed.
Timer has red, black and white wires
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070

How to wire GE 15070 timer:
1) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and slide switch to ON-or-OFF. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

5) Add a comment for more free help.
6) Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, fixya expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.

How do i charge my i stubble 7890u it came with 2 pin plug i changed it to a 3 pin plug but it keeps blowing the socket


It sounds like you have a stray wire shorting in the 'new' 3-wire plug..
Or some other form of mis-wiring--
Look at the plug, and make sure that your 2 wires are connected only to the 2 spade shaped plug blades--- NOT to the Ground plug.

May I ask-- why you converted to the 3 wire plug?
The 2 wire plug worked in the 2-wire plus ground receptacles, OK, didn't it?

Pump needs replacing


I have the Bissell Big Green model 1672 and have used it for many years. Recently, the fan or suction blower began to emit a burnt smell so I shut it off. I had difficulty figuring out how to dissemble the top motor unit. Here is what I found.

Don't pry up on the very top disk, which is an air outlet. It will only break off and won't allow access to anything. If you do break it off, drill holes through the four posts and use stainless steel screws to re-attach the disk to the plastic posts it sits on.

Now, beneath the air outlet is the rest of the motor unit. The motor unit consists of three pieces. The bottom piece is the lid to the waste water receptacle. It is concave pointing down (lid shaped). The top piece is the domed lid for the motor unit. The middle piece is a flat plate between the other two pieces. The top of the flat plate (inside the unit) has mountings for the suction fan and the pump.

The flat plate is bolted to the bottom piece and the top piece (domed lid) is simply snapped down to the flat plate. If you take a flashlight and look inside the area where the AC cord is stored, you can see that the domed lid is a distinct piece from the flat plate. The model 1672 and 1680 (or 1680-3 if you wish) are nearly identilcal.

To access the internal parts in the motor unit, you cannot pry between bottom piece and the the flat plate because they are bolted together. But you can remove the top domed lid. To remove the domed lid, position the motor unit in front of you with the switches at 9 o-clock. Three snap-downs which attach the domed lid to the flat plate are at 1 o'clock, 2:30, and 7 o'clock. Wedge a flat bladed screwdriver or pocketknife between the edge of the domed lid and the flat plate at those locations and the lever the domed lid out and then up. The domed lid will separate from the bolted-together flat plate and bottom piece.

Wiring from the switches remain attached to to the electrical components. You will see that the AC cord has white, black, and green wires. The green ground wire connects to the fan ground at the 9 o'clock position. The white power connects to upper connector on the pump and also to the fan at the 7:30 position. Black feeds both switches on model 1672 and then a black wire runs from the correct switch to the bottom connector on the pump or to the connector on the fan at the 1:30 position.

Model 1680 has a third switch which feeds power to the floor sweeper. It has its own connection to the green ground and white power and goes through the third switch to connect to black.

If you need to replace the pump or the fan, shop around carefully. The pump, for example, can be found for $30 plus shipping2_bing.gif, but some will want to charge you $80.

Pump will not run


You will need to disassemble the top motor unit and try putting power directly to the pump. The switch may be bad, the connections may be dislodged, or you may need to replace the pump. I am reading your question and I assume that you cannot hear the pump kick on (low thrumming sound).

Here is how to disassemble the motor unit. Don't pry up on the very top disk, which is an air outlet. It will only break off and won't allow access to anything. If you do break it off, drill holes through the four posts and use stainless steel screws to re-attach the disk to the plastic posts it sits on.

REPAIRING A BISSEL GREEN MACHINE, REPLACING PUMP. DON'T KNOWWHICH WIRES GO WHERE ON PUMP


hi

if theres only three wires , green, black and white then the green wire is a ground which goes to an exposed metal exterior screw on the pump. It doesent matter which way the black and white go, it will work either way but if when you try to attatch the connectors theyre harder to attatch one than the other then switch it to the most easier way to attatch. Make sure to connect the green ground wire, it is very important and always try plug the shampooer into the bathroom where the ground fault plug is- its an added level of security in case theres a ground fault.
