SOURCE: where do you connect the blue wire

Next time don't lose the instructions.....

Black is your answer...

If just simply hooking the blue and black together with the black from the switch/power supply does not work you need to replace the wire going to the fan with a 12/3 wire(white,black,red,ground) along with a switch, what you have now is a 12/2(white,black,ground)


Here is the following way it should be hooked up using 12/3 romex to the fan from wall switch.
White,Black, ground power supply
Make sure 12/3 is fed to the fan location.
From the power you Y off the black to the red with a piece of red wire to the switch.
Then from the switch is red wire.
Then at the fan red connects to blue, black connects to black, white to white, and ground to ground.

SOURCE: Trying to hook up a Lutron fan control and dimmer

The old switch is just a single pole switch. The new one is for fan speed control. You need to use a regular single pole switch like you had. Or you can use a single pole switch on the Lutron you bought if you can figure out which wires to use. Do you have a meter?

SOURCE: GE digital timer. Instructions say to: 1)

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

I have a 240v electric motor with 3 wires black,white,red how do you hook this up to a relay


Think of a relay as a simple light switch, breaking the hot on a "NO", normally open, set of contacts. When unit isn't on, the hot is "open", therefore motor not working. When the relay is energized by the g wire from the tstat, those contacts close, completing the circuit of 240. So, white carrying 120 constantly to the motor, black carrying 120, through the relay, to the motor.

T-103 Black, white and ground what thermals go where


You should be able to find a wiring here. Search you should have a white, red, black, wire there. hook the white to the neutral or common. then hook the black wire to term # 1 the red wire to term # 3 and then hook the load side to term 2 and 4. it should work doing this. don't forget to hook up the ground. hope this was helpful. contact me if u need more help

Hi, in Antec 300watt power supply there is 3 cables or input or current 220volt. The cables are Black, Green and white. Which one is earth, which on is live(positive) and which one is negative?


For 120 volt operation use
black for the hot, White for the natural, Green for earth ground.
For 240 volt operation use;

Black and White for the 240 volt and Green for earth ground.
Black is generally designated as the "Hot" or "positive" .
You must make sure the switch on the power supply is set for the voltage you are using. ie: 120/240

I am changing from a Dura/Glas H/L to an emerson1081 2horse


I am assuming the H/L You are talking about actually means that the pump has two speeds? You have an extra hot leg that comes from your timer to the pump or switch (depending on how it is set up) to allow for the second speed to be operated. For the new single speed pump you need only a hot (usually black), neutral (usually white) and ground (usually green). More than likely, you currently have two blacks, a white and a green. For you to wire in the single speed, you just need to abandon the second leg (black) but make sure that you cap it off, because when the second side of the time clock turns on, power will still be going through that leg.
Let me know if I understood your question! Thank you!

How do I get 120 from a 3 way switch to wire a single switch


You can do that from the 3-way switch that has the hot and neutral wire (the line side switch)... connect black to black and white to white.... otherwise if neither switch has both hot and neutral, then you cannot get 120V

You have 220Volts (same as 240V), then that circuit does not need a neutral.
All household single phase voltage requires two wires to complete the circuit.
With 120V, you have 1 hot wire and 1 neutral wire.
With 240, you have 2 hot wires, and these hot wires are called 'out of phase' since each comes from separate side of breaker box.
Notice that your 220V 10-2 wire goes back to a double breaker. This double breaker snaps over two different busbars. The breaker pulls 2 out of phase 120Volt lines, and when testing voltage across those two out of phase 120V wires, you get 240V potential.
The ground wire is redundant safety in both 120 or 240 Volt circuits, and is not necessary for either 120 or 240 to operate.

I have a Leviton single pole rocker switch grnd, pilot light back and side wired #5628-2W i am trying to hook it up so light is on when switch is on i have 2 black wires 2 white wires and 1 ground wire how...


easy one first: ground wire to green screw. We have to assume the two black wires are the hot(coming from power source) and switch leg(going to light). Switch will have two brass colored screws. Looking at the switch with the off/on markings right side up. Put hot wire on upper screw and switch leg on other brass screw, With nothing hooked up, the hot wire will be the only wire with voltage on it. You can buy a non-contact voltage tester at Lowes or any place that sells electrical supplies. Now we must assume the two white wires are neutrals(one coming from power source and one going to light. The pilot light part of the switch will either have a silver colored screw or a white pigtail on it. all whites hook together. The pilot light is wired internally to the switch leg. Your switch should work properly now.

Getting Power everywhere is not cord. I have


Try reading the resistance on the coil itself. If your coil is damaged and has a high resistance the voltage will still read 120 volts, becuase there is no current. The voltage drop across the coil is equal to the resistance of the coil times the current. V = I * R. "I" being current. If the resistance of the coil is high because it is broken then the voltage will still read 120V. Another way is to read the current through the coil.

If it is a 1500W fryer then the current through the coil is about 12 amps. 1500/120= 12.5. To calculate the resistance of the coil you would you take the voltage divided by the current. 120/12.5 = 9.6 ohms.

Therefore the resistance of the coil should be very low. It will actually be lower when it is not hot. So your ohmeter should read somewhere between 5 and 15 ohms.

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but


5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

On a 120/240Volt single phase system is:

Black = 1st phase
Red = 2nd phase
White = neutral
Green or Bare = ground

3 phase is the same with the third phase being blue.
