Cd players require 3 wires for the unit to power on and thankfully name brand companies have made it easy for the consumer by making the wire harness with standardized wire colors. The wires that have the in-line fuse holders should be yellow and red.

The yellow wire is the constant 12 volt power feed to the the deck. This wire needs to have power all the time for the deck to maintain it's memory (ie saved radio station presets, audio settings, clock etc...).

The red wire is called the switched ignition or ACC (accessory) wire. This wire will only have power when the key is turned on.

The third wire all decks need is the black ground wire. All car electronics need power and ground to turn on.

The other wires are your speaker sets... white (+) and white with a black stripe (-) for the front left speaker, grey (+) and gray/black for front right, green (+) and green/black (-) for left rear and purple (+) and purple/black (-) for right rear.

Other wires...not all makes and/or models of radios have these but, if your's does, here's what they are.

blue with a white stripe - amp turn on wire, used for providing a turn on trigger to aftermarket amplifiers (some factory amplifiers too depending on the make, model and year of vehicle)

orange or orange with a white stripe - illumination wire

solid blue wire - power antenna wire, this makes motorized antennas go up and down when you turn the radio source on/off

How do i install a 14-3 wire with ground to the breaker


Following wiring diagram is for general purpose household 120V-240Volt service.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Inside-Main-Breaker-Box-10-1000.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

Why are you asking that question without saying what you are wiring? 120Volt, 277V, 480V etc?
What does rating plate say on device you are connected to 14-3 wire?
And what amp/volt/watt rating are you connecting to 14 gauge wire?
No electrician would omit that information.
14-3 wire is usually only for 3-way switches and other light duty applications.
Must be connected to 15 amp breaker and no larger.

I need a wiring diagram for a Cooper 6482 dual control


Hi John,

I'm an electrician and can help you with this question.

The *best* way to plan for this fixture is to install a "3-wire" cable (romex, bx, etc.) designated as "14-3" where "14" is the size of the conductors and "3" is the number of insulated conductors. A "three wire" cable consists of 3 insulated conductors (white, black & red) and an uninsulated or bare conductor. Sometimes, you may find that the cable has 4 insulated conductors and instead of a bare conductor it will be covered with green or green with a yellow stripe insulation. This 4th wire is the ground wire (insulated or not). Either type of cable is acceptable for use.

By installing a 3 wire cable, you will not be required to use a "special switch" or an "RF switch" which are often much more expensive to purchase and more involved to install. You can use two independent switches, consisting of a variable dimmer for the light and a speed controller for the fan, simple "snap" or "toggle" switches or any combination of both if you install into a "2 ganged box". If you opt to install a single gang box, your switches will be needed to be on a single strap (often called duplex switches) and your choces for control will become limited - and likely more expensive, too.

If you run a 3 wire cable, you can install your choice of switches, if you install only a 2 wire cable, you will be forced to use special switches or a standard switch and a pull chain on the fixture (this option is only available to you if there is a constant power source at the fixture). It will cost a little more for the 3 wire cable, but it will provide the most flexibility when selecting fans / switches.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Room heater caused 15 amp circuit breaker to go bad. Can we update 15 amp circuit breaker to 20 am (similar to ones next to it)


Probable not, in order for you to install a 20 amp breaker, the wiring must be a #12 gauge cable.Check the power requirement of your room heater. It should be not more than 15 amps. Check and retighten the connections to the heater.
Install a new 15 amps breaker.

My Sylvania - ground fault 15 amp breaker (32740) is tripping with minutes of reseting. It is for 3 washrooms & hallway & is 30 years old .....does or can it loose its life span? What is the cost...


A circuit breaker can go bad, but usually not in the way that you describe. That's not to say that it can't happen, but just not typical. GTE Sylvania breakers were once popular - I installed quite a few GTE / Sylvania electrical panels in homes in the late 80's. You may have trouble finding replacements; do not put an breaker that "fits" into the panel, unless the breaker is designed for use in the panel you have.

The first thing to do is determine the source of the problem. The breaker will trip, but not indicate if it was the result of a heavy electrical load or a ground fault condition. A 15 amp circuit breaker is designed to carry up to 12 amps continuously. The greater the load, the more quickly it will trip. it may carry a 14.5 amp load for several minutes to an hour before tripping, and a 20 amp load may be carried a second or two. GFI breakers are designed to carry 5 thousandths (.005) of an amp (or 5 milliamps) to ground, or the 12+ amps to neutral before they trip.

The way I would attack the problem is to install a new GFI outlet in front of the old wiring, by "inserting it" between the panel and the other plugs and lights, switches, etc on that circuit. The GFI outlet will provide the same GFI protection that the circuit breaker provided at a fraction of the cost.

Turn off the old GFI breaker, and remove it completely. Install a new, standard (non-GFI) single pole 15 amp circuit breaker in its place. Completely remove from the panel the cable that the old GFI breaker fed. Buy a new electrical outlet box (surface or flush mount as desired) that is large enough and deep enough for a GFI plug and 2 cables (if surface mount, use a 4" square deep box and appropriate cover - or if flush mounting use a deep plastic / fiber single gang box). It will be installed in a place close to the panel, but where the old cable will be able to reach inside. Bring the old cable removed from the panel into the new box. Run a new cable that has the same number and size wires from the panel into the new box, too. Connect the circuit neutral and circuit ground to the neutral and ground bars in the panel (they are probably the same bar) and the hot wire to the circuit breaker. make sure that the circuit breaker is OFF. Twist the two ground wires together and combine an 8 inch length of bare or green insulated wire with them in a wirenut.

Next, wire a new GFI plug in the new box. Connect the green wire from the wirenut to the green terminal of the GFI outlet.

Connect the plug's LINE terminals to the neutral and hot wires in the cable that you ran from the panel to the outlet box.

Now, connect the GFI plug's LOAD terminals to the neutral and hot wires in the cable that you removed from the panel and reinstalled into the new outlet box.

Secure the GFI outlet into the box and install the cover. Cover the electrical panel.

Power up and test. if the GFI trips, there's a ground fault in the circuit. If the circuit breaker trips, the circuit is overloaded.

1 question can Cutler Hammer breakers have the amperage feed through the breakers. To the breaker box and from the box grid to the load. Does it matter which way the amperage is fed through the breaker?...


There seem to be several questions mingled in with those 2 questions.

1) Amps can go either way

2) Breakers trip when heat exceeds certain level. Heat is caused by amps.

3) You want to add a subpanel in garage.
I do not know the code in your area for installing a subpanel.
Your plan will work by connecting 6 gauge wire to main breaker, and new 60 amp breaker will protect wires between main box and subpanel.
Remember, wires going into main breaker cannot be turned off without pulling meter.
Some areas require license to pull meter.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-circuit-breaker.html

4) To work around license and meter-pull, simply replace a 240V breaker in main panel with your new 60 amp breaker.
Then move breakers around to match new set-up.
New subpanel can accommodate two new 240V breakers and one new 120 Breaker
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-a-subpanel.html

5) 6 gauge wire is correct for 60 amp breaker.

6) I'm not sure what you mean by the box rails?

7) Do you need more amperage on main service?
This means adding a larger service panel with 150 Watt or 200 Watt main breaker.
Some areas require service upgrade when remodeling or adding circuits.

8) How to figure total amp draw at your house.
Add up total watts being used.
For example you have 1/2 Hp motor
754 watts per Hp
1/2 Hp = 377Watts
Volts x Amps = Watts
Amps = Watts divided by Volts.
377 Watts divided by 240Volts = 1.57 amps (plus a bit more amperage when motor starts)
40 watt light bulb divided by 120Volts = .33 amps
Double oven has label located inside door that shows upper and lower wattage.
Dishwasher, dryer, big screen TV, satellite receiver all have labels that show wattage.
Water heater has label that shows wattage of each element.

Breaker malfunction- Breaker won't restore power to the circuit


To do this safely you should call an electrician. No way I can give you complete instructions that will be sure to be safe because I can't see exactly what the situation is that you have. But the basic steps include: turning off the main, understanding that you are about to expose the feed lugs TO the main which are still LIVE (and giving them a wide berth!), carefully removing the cover, CONFIRMING that everything else in the box is NOT LIVE (use a non-contact voltage detector - $15 or less), removing the wire from the old breaker, pulling the old breaker out, plugging the new breaker in, connecting the wire to the new breaker (nice and tight), replacing the cover and then turning the main back on.

I have a Kenmore Diswasher model. 587.15103801 - My question is - can I wire a 3 prong power cord to it? If so, what do I need to purchase? Thanks


The dishwasher SHOULD have a three prong cord, or be hardwired using using a 3 conductor electrical wire capable of handing 15 to 20 amps (12 or 10 gauge wire). If you desire to use a cord with a plug on the end, you can purchase a power tool replacment cord rated at 15 amps or higher from the hardware store (I have found power tool replacement cords to be very durable). Make sure you purchase one that is long enough the accomodate pulling the dishwasher out from under the counter, if required. The power cord is installed in a junction box behind the lower toe panel that's located directly below the door. The wire color coding is as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

Match the color wires with the wires inside the dishwasher junction box and twist together using wire lugs. Attach the ground wire to the appropriate ground lug.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Clarion dxz665mp cd player


I think you connect the wrong remote wire to the subwoofer amp.
This cd player it has 2 blue remote wires,one is for PWR ANTENNA (BLUE ONLY),when you insert the cd,this wire cut out the pwr,so,is when your subwoofers stop working.
The other blue wire is the REMOTE (BLUE W/WHITE) Wire,this is the one you need to connect to the Amplifier.

Let me know if work
Thank you
