Polaris 9300 sport pool cleaner. the wires pulled free from the plug into the power supply. not sure which wire goes where. There are 3 red black and brown. 4 holes for them to go back into.


Without a wiring diagram it will need either model knowledge or some educated guesswork aided by a multimeter and carefully studying the internal wiring of the power supply.
Without a great deal of additional description I can't help further other than to suggest you contact the retailer who sold the appliance.

Good luck!

I have a Kenmore Upright Model # 11630412001 with a broken power cord


Normally, you would leave the current power connections attached and then line up or label the new cord lines with the old.

There should be a common ground, easy enough to dsitinguish.
A hot, normally black.
A return, normally white.

These may be swapped it the existing wire colors are.

Red = new black
Black = new white
Green or Blue = Green or bare.

I'm a bit surprised t read your post as the cord should have come with connection instructions if the replacement cord is different in color scheme from the old.

ALWAYS TAKE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WHEN WORKING ON HOT LIVE POWER. NEVER MAKE CONNECTION CHANGES WHILE THE VACUUM IS PLUGGED IN.

IF AFTER YOU CONNECT THE NEW LINES, TEST THIS BY TURNING ON THE VACUUM AND TURNING IT OFF RIGHT AWAY. IF YOU HAVE POPPED A BREAKER OR SEEN BURNING, YOU HAVE TO SWITCH THE BLACK AND WHITE WIRES.

The best thing is to always go online and find the wiring layout for you model.

If you have any doubt, pleast post the wire colors you do see now coming to the connection terminal and post the colors coming out of your new power cord.

Where do the wires go when i am wiring a garbage disposal using a tw o pole toggle switch


The garbage disposal shoud have three wires a green wire goes to ground,

the white wire is neutral, and the black wire is your hot. at the switch, the white

neutral wire feeds straight to the garbage disposal as does the ground, many

times the switch will either have two screws one gold and one silver and the

green is designated as ground. hot goes to the gold screw and the black wire

coming from your disposal goes to the other screw. make sure to turn off power

before working on electrical wires check with voltage meter, its not like working

on your car, if shocked it can be fatal, if unsure handle wires with insulated tools

or gloves. good luck!

Hoover Wind Tunnel Bagless cord prong loose, Vacuum shutting off. Do we have to scrap the vacuum?


Home Depot has cord plugs. Cut off your plug, strip apart the three wires, black, white, green. The new plug will have a green screw for the green ground; a silver screw for the white neutral wire and a brass or gold screw for the black or hot wire.
Connect those wires, ensure that none are touching the others, plug it in and turn it on.
Good Luck,
Gary

GE on/off timer for a bathroom fan - switch has four wires Green - ground White - neutral Black - power Blue - lead My fan has two - white neutral and black lead I have tried...


I would guess that the black wire on the timer is the power in and blue is the power out to the fan (hook it to the black wire going to the fan) The other colors are right.

How do I fix an electrical plug on my vacuum


cut it off. go to a hardware store and get a three prong plug which you can install onto the wire.

when you prepare the wire you will see a black wire, a white, and a green.

black goes to the brass screw, white goes to the dull screw and green goes to the green ground screw.

Hi i got a red green and black wire cable and I


Partial solution. Rob's clarification request is very valid, and you shouldn't mess with electrics if you are not completely sure what you're doing. That said, my guess is that you are in Europe (possibly the UK). Confusion can be caused by relatively recent changes in colour codes, so older and newer wires are coloured differently. Basically, red and brown signify "live", black and blue signify "neutral" and green signifies "earth" (or "ground"). So if you are just joining these cables, red goes to brown, and black goes to blue. But what about the green...?  Some machines are designed to be earthed, others are designed to be not-earthed, and it's not clear to me why you have an earth wire in one cable and not in the other. If the green is in the cable that brings power in to the machine, then it should be fixed to some metal part of the machine It can be FATALLY dangerous if you fail to earth a machine that should be be earthed. I repeat, if you are not absolutely sure what you are doing, don't risk it. Anyway, post more details and it looks like there's at least two of us out here who can help you.

Got a numatic henry (green colour) There is a loose wire in plug, but can't open plug to fix. how do i? Thankyou


Hi.

Very simple this one.
The plug is molded type this kind of plug is sealed so you cant make any repairs internally other than change the fuse.

You will need to cut plug off & fit A new 13amp plug.
There are only 2 wires to reconect to new plug these are
BROWN to L
BLUE to N.

& thats it simple.

REPAIRING A BISSEL GREEN MACHINE, REPLACING PUMP. DON'T KNOWWHICH WIRES GO WHERE ON PUMP


hi

if theres only three wires , green, black and white then the green wire is a ground which goes to an exposed metal exterior screw on the pump. It doesent matter which way the black and white go, it will work either way but if when you try to attatch the connectors theyre harder to attatch one than the other then switch it to the most easier way to attatch. Make sure to connect the green ground wire, it is very important and always try plug the shampooer into the bathroom where the ground fault plug is- its an added level of security in case theres a ground fault.
