We are talking about a 115 Volt AC motor, I believe. The black wire will be connected to the small blade of a polarized plug, also known as a cap. The white wire will attach to the large or wide blade of that same plug. The green wire will attach to the U shaped prong.

I trust this answers your question?

    With no feedback you rate my response so poorly? You say it is a chain saw then a air compressor ... no make nor model ... whether it is 110 or 220 or both (probably both) and you rate me poor? Whats up with that? I see no one else even bothered to respond.

How to hook up


Yes it only uses hot water. There should be a 3/8 fitting to hook up a water line. The drain hose connects to the air gap on the sink and when hooking up the power if there is no power cord be sure to hook up the black to black, white to white, and green to the green or bare wire.

I need to replace a cord on a GE window air unit...Mo number AEW10AJ...Is there a instruction manual or can you tell me how to re hook up a power cord ( what wire goes where)....


Replacement can be done with any generic cord of the same gauge wires. White wire= neutral, Black wire= hot, green wire = ground (connects to the metal chassis of the unit).Just get the new cord and replace the old one wire at a time.

How do I replace the power cord on an electrolux 8502A vacuum cleaner?


1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.

Hi! We have a really old williamson thermostat (not sure about the model but it says t87fi89i 2 8047 [dont know if it's i or 1 either]). We want to replace it with a honeywell t87n east-to-see thermostat....


On most applications for heating the red and white wires are used,however I would check what wires are connected to terminals on old thermostat. These connectons should be labled with initial of wire color,such as R,W,G,Y or Rc. If your green wire is hooked to R or whatever just hook new thermostat up like the old one and you should be ok. Hope this helps. Thanks.

How to wire to attic fan? Old Sping loaded timer has two wire connections Marked LINE and LOAD . There are two Romex- Three wire cables with Black , White (Common) and bare (Grd) wires coming into this box...


OK, your new switch will require the use of a neutral wire. So you will have to do what is called a pigtail. You will have to twist another white wire in with your other white wires to attach your neutrals to your switch. Note: white wires are called neutral not common. Hook the wires that were originally hooked up to your LINE to your HOT (Black) on your new timer, and the what was originally LOAD up to the new timer LOAD. SO as far as wiring all that will change is your white wires that need to attach to your timer NEUTRAL.

Compressor low pressure triped


If the compresor, overheats, then compresor it's not good, make sure that there is a safety cycle on. Explain: there should a click when compresor starts if you hear a click again within 30 secs. is a confirmation that the compresor has weak coils, and needs to be replace. If this is not the case, make sure you are not using an extention cord to run this unit, maybe wire are overheating.

Admiral Clean-O-Matic oven: Power cord black red white ground?


Your terminal block has been by-passed .
Hook your black cord wire to the black screw on the terminal block.
Hook your white wire to the white screw on the terminal block. Hook the bare ground to the exterior ground screw.
The 2 wires that are wire-nutted together will have to hook to the red wire on the cord.(they originally went to the third connection on the terminal).
You will probably have to cut and strip the red cord wire and attach it with the 2 wire-nutted connections.

Need help wiring new pressure switch for craftsman air compressor


Assuming that you are wiring for 115v. Lets start with the ground. The cord that attaches to the wall outlet will have three wires, green, black , and white. Insert the cord thru one of the openings of the pressure switch and attach the green wire to the ground screw. Next look very closely at the contacts and notice that they are arrainged in pairs. There is a small brass bar with two contacts that completes the circuit for each line. Start with L1 and attach white wire from cord, then attach white wire from motor to the screw terminal that small brass bar bridges to (should be T1). Next attach black wire from cord to L2 and black wire from motor to remining screw. Remember that the small brass bar with two contacts is the bridge and simply connects white to white and black to black. Enjoy
