Which Wire Where

I got a new switch from the suggested website. Unfortunately I unplugged all the wires on the old one before noting their placement on the switch. Can you help me know which wire to connect where? I'd appreciate it.

Replacing a double light switch, the old switch has 6 terminals. The new metal double switch has the same but both commons are at the top where as the old one had common top and bottom. The L1 and L2 are...

You question invites guessing.

Switch is not identified.
Screw terminal colors are not identified. Load is not described.
Maybe you have double switch where 1 switch is single pole and 1 switch is 3-way.
This type switch is wired differently depending on location of hot wire supplying power to 3-way switch.

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Use multi-meter and continuity tester from home center.
Screw color is very important for wiring electrical devices.
First step is to note where each wire is located on old switch, hopefully doing that before removing wires on old switch.
And note what color screw that wire connected to.
Take a photograph.
Then determine what each wire does by testing and process of elimination.

Compare screw colors on old device to screw colors on new device.
Use continuity tester on old device and on new device to check screw-terminal relationships.

For additional help, add a comment after testing the screw terminals as described above.

I changed the magneto on my Honda GX160 QX2 5.5hp. small engine and I still have no spark. Any suggestions on what to check ?

There could be an issue with the oil sending unit, spark plug boot or faulty on/off switch. Easy tests. Always use a new plug for testing. Unplug the oil sending unit wire and retest for spark. If spark may need to change the oil or low oil. If still no spark, leave the sending unit wire unplugged and remove the boot from the plug wire. Insert a short piece of paper clip wire into the end of the plug wire and hold near metal of the engine for test. If spark, replace boot. If still no spark, unplug wire from on/off switch and retest. If still no spark suspect faulty coil ~ redo all tests using old coil. If still no joy return new coil for exchange. I use a growler to test coils(growler used for testing armature for short, place one leg of coil on each pad of growler and activate growler for short burst). Good luck.

How do I get the wires out of the old 3 speed ceiling fan switch so I can replace it with a new one?

Usually, there is no way to remove the wires from the switch. Turn off the circuit breaker that powers the circuit going to your fan. Then, match up the new switch with the old one to make sure you have the correct one, with the correct amount of wires. Mark the placement of of these wires with masking tape or draw yourself a diagram. Next, you need to cut the wires as close to the old switch as possible, and strip back about 1/2" of the insulation on these wires. Now connect those wires to the leads (wires) coming from the new switch with small wire nuts or crimp fasteners. When connecting the cut wires to the new switch leads, follow the same pattern as the old switch (refer to your masking tape labels or your diagram). Now you can secure the switch to the fan casing with it's locknut, and carefully tuck the wiring back inside. Re-secure the casing to the fan.

Bought new switch wrong plug, I want to open ignition switch and wire old wire to new switch

i would suggest get the right switch, but if the wire colors are the same you can remove the terminals from the plastic plugs, by using a tiny screw driver or similar to bend the lock tabs , make notes or take photos of both plugs and wires before starting

My kitchenaid architect series II gas range is displaying an error code of f2E1 and saying stuck/shorted key. How do i fix this. My oven will not work.

In most cases, this is an indication that the Electronic Range Control (ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. The ERC controls all the features of the oven, so without it, you cannot turn the oven on or regulate the temperatures. You can attempt to reset it by unplugging the range for at least 30 seconds, first. Or you can try disconnecting each wire from the ERC and reseating it (one-at-a-time) to ensure you have good connectivity. However, if the problem persists you will need to replace the ERC.

If parts are required, you can purchase on line at the following websites:

Use whatever parts source you like, but I have found these websites to be reliable, offer great service and the prices are usually cheaper than retail. The prices will differ between sites, so shop around for the best deals.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the part number for the ERC is 9762794. The cheapest website I could find it was on the Sears website for about $158. (Not a cheap part no matter where you look for it).

To replace (if necessary), follow these steps:

1. Make sure the appliance is unplugged.
2. Remove the screws that hold the back of the control panel in place.
3. Take note of the wire color coding BEFORE removing any wires from the ERC. Most control boards will have the colors printed on the board by the terminals. If yours is not listed, either write the wire color codes down or use a digital camera to ensure you note the proper placement of the wires.
4. Remove the wires from the control board and the screws that hold it in place.

NOTE: Most ERC boards do not come with the overlay (This is the plastic that covers the facing of the EOC with all the features on it). Remove the old overlay from the old board if you wish to reuse it and install it to the replacement board.

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

I wired a new dura-glas pump as a 115, and it popped the breaker. I put the black wire on 1 and the white on 2. Should I have wired it as 230? Should I switch the black and white wires, even though the...

The wire placement does not matter assuming you have a 115 volt supply with a three wire cord/cable and they are comming in as blk=hot, white=neutral and copper=ground.

Tripping a breaker would be from a shorted hot wire so look for a place where it touches the white or ground wires or the metal of the motor. Another cause would be if you really have 230V across the black and white and you connect it to a motor set for 115V. Is the breaker that turns off the circuit in question a signle wide or a double wide breaker. A double wide would be 230V.

3-speed switch replaced with hampton bay switch. Only low speed works.

The cause to the problem was replacing a HUNTER fan switch with a Hampton Bay switch. Before removing the old switch, I noted and marked the color and position of the 4 wires. I then duplicated the connections to the new switch.

But the wire positions of Hampton Bay vs Hunter are not identical, therefore 2 wires
were crossed.

The correct way is to note the color of the wires with the corresponding NUMBER
marked on the switches, then duplicate this on the new one.
