Black wire, white wire, and tan wire coming from ceiling. New fan has blue, black, white wire and green wire on the bracket how does it hook up


1. Have on hand either wire connectors or electrical tape

2. Look at the wires coming from your ceiling fan. The black wire from the ceiling fan is the hot wire that runs the motor and turns the fan blades. The white wire is neutral and completes the fan circuit. The blue wire is the hot wire for the ceiling fan light fixture. The ceiling fan motor does not have a ground wire.

3. Find the short green wire or the green ground screw on your ceiling fan hanging bracket. Attach the bare copper wire from your electrical box to the short green wire by twisting and orange wire connector to the two wires. If you only have a green ground screw, wrap the bare copper wire around this screw and tighten the screw against the bracket to secure the wire.

4. Match the end of the white insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the end of the white wire from your electrical box. Twist a wire connector onto the two wires to complete the neutral circuit.

5. Connect the black insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the black insulated wire from the electrical box. If you do not have a separate toggle switch on the wall to operate the ceiling fan and light separately, grab the blue wire and place it with the black wire from the fan motor and the black insulated wire from the electrical box. Twist a wire connector to all three wires. If you have the additional toggle switch, connect the two black wires together with an orange wire connector, and then match the blue wire and the red wire together. Twist another orange wire connector on the red and blue wires

I have a 3 prong cord, the outlet is 4, colors in back dont match


Hi,
Hook the green directly to the metal of the machine anywhere you can, like under a screw that holds something.
Hook the white to the white.
Then the red and black can go on the other two, it does not natter which one is on what they are interchangable. To make it easy, go black on black and red on blue.
Plug it in and
Then you are good to go!!

The power cord on my Whirlpool washing machine is not connected. There are 4 cables (red, black, white, and green). I can see where the black, white, and red, but where does the green one go? There is...


The following link explains how to correctly install a power cord on your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

The main difference between the 3-wire and 4-wire configuration is how the Neutral (WHITE) wire and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) wire are terminated on the terminal block in the back of the dryer:

- In a 4-wire configuration, these two wires are INDEPENDENT of each other and are terminated separately.

Terminate the wires at the terminal block by matching the corresponding colors:

RED to RED (HOT) 120VAC
BLACK to BLACK (HOT) 120VAC
WHITE to WHITE (Neutral) 0VAC
GREEN (Ground) - attached to a ground lug that grounds it to the equipment cabinet.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you

In most cases your black and red wires will be the hot wires and the bare(green) or white will be your ground and grounding wires.

Have a Leviton dimmer with red, black and green wire. House wiring is black and white wire and copper wire. I assume that copper wire is ground and connects to green wire but I am not sure where the white...


You are correct in assuming green is the ground and connects to bare copper wire. Black is always the HOT wire and should be attached to the black wire. Red wire connects to white wire.

Dryer is turning but no heat is coming out


If you had a 3 prong originaly you probably have only 3 wires to work with, either a red and black and white or a black and a black with a red stripe and a bare stranded wire. The black and red are ALWAYS the 2 hot wires 230 volt. The white or bare are the neutral / common wires. If you only have 3 you will need to get your equipment ground from a cold water line to the 4th prong.
Another option leave the 3 prong in the wall and install the old 3 prong pig tail on the new dryer then ground the frame of the dryer to the nearest cold water line. The water line must be metalic for this to work.

I need a wiring diagram to wire my oven to the house power. Whirlpool electric model# rb260pxyb


You will have 3 or possibly 4 wires coming out of the oven Red and Black go to the hot leads in the junction box.Usually red & black but could be 2 black. White goes to white Bare/green go to the white if no Bare/Green available. This is for a wall oven. If the stove is free standing and you want to attach a cord. Just buy the cord that matches the outlet in your house. Make sure it is a range cord and not a dryer cord. They are very similar. If a 3 conductor cord (most common) outer two terminals are the hot ones. There is a wire or metal strap between the frame of the range and the center (neutral )terminal . On a 3 conductor cord leave this connected. On a 4 conductor cord remove this wire and connect it to the green/bare wire in the cord. There may be a vacant terminal on the block for this purpose. If not use a wire nut.

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.
