Question about Patton Electric Dryers
How do I wire in a new three-speed switch to my box fan.
The original had two wires in (from the electrical source) and four wires out to the fan motor.
I can only find a replacement switch with four wires
On one side of the switch red and black
On the other side blue and yellow
Can you help?!
I have the same problem.

You will typically need a 40 amp 220V circuit for this ( check with local building inspectors). You will need to run some hefty wire probably #8 three wire (again check) and install the type of plug receptacle that is on the dryer cord.
Inside the breaker box you will need a dual breaker 220V breaker rated at 40 amps. The wire coming into the breaker box will need to be clamped in place with appropriately sized wire cable clamp where the enter the box through a knockout- available at any hardware store.
Now the big question- why are you switching to electrical? Gas is pretty much half as expensive as electricy and will dry the clothes faster (usually gas dryers generate more heat than electrical ones). Just wondering..
