If the wire and connection keeps burning /. melting, it would suggest that whatever that wire is supplying power to is overloading the circuit. Trace the wire to see what it is powering and check if the component has shorted / jamming. Normally however, if something is shorting or overloading the circuit, you would expect the fuse protecting that circuit to keep blowing.
Hi. Yes it is possible to connect the wires with wire nuts. (Without tape! / tape can melt) You must use ceramic / porcelain wire nuts (white) in HOT areas. Make sure it is a clean connection with no copper strands exposed The plastic ones will melt like your connector did. Most appliance parts supply stores will have ceramic / porcelain wire nuts.
Hi, do you know what these wires were for? You can bypass the board, but if the wires are for lets say the blower motor and you bypass and put them to direct hot legs, you will run all the time, or what ever shorted the block in the first place must have a short. Its probably in the wires at this block and if you apply it to 120 volts it may fry again. I would follow these wires back to see what they run first. Yes, it can be done. Shastalaker7
The connectors get loose and corrode over time, resulting in a high resistance connection that produces a lot of heat, melting the connections, as you have witnessed. Cut back the wires to good insulation and splice them with waterproof splice connectors or waterproof wire nuts from the local hardware.
You'll need two connectors or wire nuts. Each connector will connect 3 wires: one wire IN from upstream , one wire OUT to the next light, and one wire to the light.
Since the voltage is 12 volts AC, polarity doesn't matter, however, if you look closely at the cable, you'll see that one of the wires has ridges.
Now is also a good time to check the connectors on the other lights.
Fryers draw high amps.Goto home depot,lowes and buy a 15amp 125 volt plug.Cut the exsisting plug off the cord,strip the cord down 2 inches you will see 3 wires black,white,green, connect the green wire to the green screw on the plug.connect the other 2 wires on either of the remaining spades(it doesnt matter).let me know
