How do i connect a three prong wire to a four prong plug for 240 volts


DO NOT DO THIS.

A 3 prong plug is L1 L2 and ground, a 4 pong plug has a neutral.
If you are backfeeding a dryer outlet it is dangerous. Generator N and G should be isolated unless it is a seperately derived source

I have a 4 prong tanning bed 220v and my appliance outlet at home only accepts the 3 prong plus such as the ones you see on a dryer. How can i get this converted to a 3 prong so that i can plug it in? Or...


It is because you tanning bed requires L1 and L2 (240V) and a seperate neutral, and a ground. You need an electrician to install a proper outlet. A dryer (years ago) was installed without a neautral. However per NEC electrical code even new dryers have to have 4 wires. Do not attempt to use on 3 wires !

How do I hook up to dryer plug


Do NOT hookup to a dryer plug, it is dangerous to back feed a panel through a dryer plug. Besides dryer plugs (older ones) have a N and G combined in a 3 prong plug, new dryers and wiring have 4 prong where the N and G are correctly seperated. Do not backfeed !

I just bout a new electric dryer but the plug thats on the wall will not fit so y went and bout a new plug but the new plug takes 3 wires and the in the wall takes 2 can i still use the new one


TO BE SAFE...I WOULD PURCHASE THE CORRECT PLUG WITH THE TWO PRONGS THAT FITS YOUR OUTLET!

IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT PLUG... YOU CAN USE THIS ONE...BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO BREAK OFF THE GROUND PRONG BY BENDING AND WIGGLING IT, IT IS THE THIRD PRONG SEPERATE ON THE BOTTOM! IT SHOULD LOOK STRAIGHT & ROUND!

HOPE THIS HELPS...WOULD APPRECIATE A RATING...THANKS!

KIND REGARDS!

Your new 3 prong power cord needs to be wired up just like the 4 prong you just dont have the seperate ground . in the use of a three wire cord ground runs thru neutral .Hook black to black on the terminal block on unit. hook red to red on the other side of block and white to white or green in the middle reinstall the cover ....Plug in and your ready to dry

Going from thre prong to four prong what goes


Under the new Codes2_bing.gif...all dryers (and stoves/ovens) must now be 4 wire....having a seperate neutral and ground wire in NEW construction. In decades past, the neutral was allowed to serve as both - the neutral and ground - typically by means of a solid metal strap or wire strap that bonded that connection to the metal frame of the dryer. This sounds as if it is the case in your existing dryer...which was typical.

But...the old arrangement wasn't always reliable...and a seperate dedicated ground provides a greater safety path in the event of a fault inside the dryer (lowering the chance the user may get a shock when touching the frame of the dryer).

To modify your existing 3 prong dryer over to 4....you'll need to remove the 3 wire - disconnect the ground strap (or wire) that bonds the neutral to the frame of the dryer...and install your 4 wire so that you'll have (from left to right) one hot, one neutral, one hot connection...and connect the ground directly to he frame of the dryer (there is usually a green screw near the dryer connection block for this ground)

For more on this - with an illustration, see:

http://www.american-appliance.com/service_pages/electric_dryer_cord.htm

When done properly, you can test for correct wiring and connection with an ohm-meter (continuity check)...by checking for continuity from the ground prong on the plug to the frame of the dryer...you should see continuity. Then check for continuity from the neutral prong on the plug to the frame...you should NOT see continuity....nor should you see any continuity between the neutral connection at the wiring block to the metal frame.

The whole purpose of the Code change to the 4 wire is to seperate the two.

Hope this helps,....if you need more details, please follow-up.

Switching electrical plugs


it sounds as if your plug configuration is for 220 volts. that means that all wires are needed to operate the unit. white is the common and red and black are both power leads. in other words...the red lead provides 110 volts and the black provides 110 volts, and the white is the common for both circuits. and of course the ground is for curcuit safety
to change to a three prong plug the ground must be sacrificed but with shock risk. i suggest a seperate ground wire run to an adequate ground.
a typical three prong plug will mean that the two prongs closest to the edges are the two power leads and will use the red wire on one and black wire on the other.(doesn't matter which one goes on which prong)
the white will go to the center or usually odd shaped prong. be sure and be safe!
hope this helps.......................jay
