Solution depends on how many wires are in the ceiling box. was there a ceiling fan in place before? were the light and fan controlled by seperate switches or was there only one switch? if two switches, then there should be two seperate hot wires in the ceiling box. if only one switch, then only one hot wire in box. if only one, then your black and red from the fan will wire together to the single hot. green goes to the bare copper wire, if not one, then not needed

We were given a HOT POINT Heavy Duty Dryer with Automatic Dry Control, Model DLB2650BRLWH, Serial No. DG241274H and had to buy the power cord to go with it. Ordered the cord from a local appliance company,...


Technical explanation: Older 240 Volt appliances use a three-wire power cord (Black, White, Red). The White wire is the "neutral" connection, which is tied to Ground at the service entrance panel. The Black and Red wires are opposite phases of the 240 VAC (when one goes positive, the other goes negative). The neutral wire is "in between", so measuring the voltage between the black or red wire and neutral would give you 120 VAC. The green wire is frame ground; the electrical code requires newer (since 2008) 240 VAC appliances to have a separate ground bonding connection to the frame; the neutral connection is not considered adequate protection for certain failure conditions.

Look for a screw head or terminal stud on the frame or sheet metal of the dryer labeled "Ground", "Earth", or one of the following ground symbols:

The green wire goes to this point. DO NOT connect the green wire to any of the wiring inside the dryer, unless it is a green wire attached to sheet metal or a bracket!

The black, white and red wires go to black, white and red terminals you already found.

This sounds like you should call an electrician, or someone that knows wiring. Red and Black are both hot, White is neutral, and Green is ground. Remove the ground strap from the center of the terminal block to the case. Put green wire to the case, white in the middle, and red or black to either side. Your last question I do not understand. But it sounds like you need an electrician to connect a 4 prong receptacle, with the proper 4 conductor wire to your breaker box.

I am changing out the wiring from a 3 wire to a four wire. The terminal block has (top to bottom) black, whiteandblue wires. The new 4 prong wiring has a white black green and red wire... what goes where...


The black,red & blue wires are your hot (120 volt) wires. Two of them get conn. to the two brass colored screws. The white is the neutral wire which conn. to the siver screw. The green wire is the ground wire conn. to the green screw which is the grounding screw.

I own an Amana Heavy Duty dryer, model # NDE880AYW, and I'm trying to change a three prong cord for a four prong cord. I know nothing about electricals so I need help at a very elementary level. I have...


First off. Do any and all electrical connections with the PLUG detached from the wall receptacle.. The Green Wire is earth ground and should be connected to the nearest Chassis or Frame terminal.. There should be one near the terminal block for the two power ( red & black) and one neutral ( white).. It's OK to double up the green wire with other green wires.. so your answer is YES.. connect it to the nearest Green wire terminal.. This green wire provides protection to you and anyone else from getting electrocuted by bonding the frame/chassis as well as other sheet metal parts to earth ground.. Hope that helps...

This is common issue. Due to some building codes the 3-prong configuration is no longer used in homes. The wiring is similar with one exception. The 4-wire plug uses an additional (WHITE) NEUTRAL wire.

Here's a brief explanation of how the plugs are configured:

Dryer 3 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC

Dryer 4 prong wire configuration:

RED - 120 VAC
GREEN - GROUND
BLACK - 120 VAC
WHITE - NEUTRAL

BOTH plugs provide the SAME source voltages to your appliance:

220 VAC - provided across the RED and BLACK leads are what drives your heating circuitry.
120 VAC - usually tapped of the BLACK wire is used to run the drive motor and timer on MOST dryers.

The wire terminal block in the back of the dryer should have a black, white, and red wire running to it from the dryer wiring harness. With the 4 prong plug, simply attach the BLACK, WHITE and RED wires at the terminal block ensuring that you match the RED and BLACK wires as they are configured and attach the WHITE wire at the remaining terminal lug. Make sure you screw them all down securely. Attach the remaining GREEN wire to chassis (dryer frame) ground. I hope this helps you.
