for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. The 4 wires that are needed for this stove are, L1 (120 phase 1) L2 (120 phase 2), neutral, and ground. If you only have three wires then you are missing one of these wires. I would recommend running new wire from your electrical panel …to the stove. I would NOT just leave the ground wire off or connect the neutral and ground together. There is a reason that there are 4 wires, and you should keep it that way. Another answer Do not tie the neutral and ground in the outlet! Run new wire! Depending on how much current is flowing through the neutral, there is a potential (pun not intended) for a voltage to exist between the neutral and ground. If you use the neutral as a ground, this means a shock hazard. Get it wired properly. Be safe. Rationalizing tying the neutral to the hot "because they are tied at the breaker box anyways" is dangerous because it neglects the fact that the wire has resistance. The resistance in the wire causes the potential to ground, which is always 0V at the breaker box. What if The neutral and ground are already connected on the back of the appliance? Could I then replace the 4 wire cord with a 3 wire? If you are upgrading to a newer appliance the electrical code allows you to continue to use your exsisting 3 wire supply.You would connect the ground and neutral together as in the old appliance.The neutal currents in cooking appliances( 240 volt) are very small and should not cause you any problems. Finally The neutral / ground tie mentioned above is for old 3 wire outlets. If you are lucky enough to have a new 4 wire outlet, break that bond. Your new cord will have the separate neutral and ground so that bond is not needed. Again, if you are wiring a new outlet you need all 4 wires for a 4 wire plug. Pull new wire if you can, it is safer. If you can't, use the older 3 wire plug. The 3 wire plug does not meet code for new work, but is allowed for old work. Do not under any circumstances connect ground and neutral at the outlet That is dangerous and illegal. Do it right or don't do it at all. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances, always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

You have to purchase a new cord assembly that is designed specifically for ranges. Hardware stores usually carry these cords. Tell the salesperson what you want to do with it and they should give you the right one. On the back of the stove you will find a terminal block with three screws in it. Your… newly purchased cord will have 4 wires in it. Red, Black, White, Green. Connect the red wire to the first terminal screw (left). Next the white to the center screw and finally the black to the last terminal screw (right). You are now left with one green wire to connect. There might be a jumper strap from the white wire "neutral" terminal position to the chassis frame of the stove. This must be removed. There should be a ground lug that is bolted to the chassis of the stove. If there isn't a ground lug install one in the place where the jumper strap connected to the chassis frame. There might be a ground lug in the four wire stove kit that you bought, if not buy a #6 ground lug. Put the green wire into the lug and tighten. Make sure the stove receptacle that you are plugging into is turned OFF. Plug the stove into the receptacle. Turn the breaker back on. Stove should be up and running. (MORE)
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz power supplyservice. In order to plug your 3 wire stove into a 4 wire outlet, theeasiest way to do so is to change the cord on the stove. This doesnot require cutting power to the outlet or anything like that. Anyone who is going to be changing t…he power cable on any deviceknows that you need to unplug the cord first, eliminating the needto cut power to the outlet. The difference between a 3 prong and 4 prong outlet is the groundwire. Both provide 240v power by supplying 2 120v wires (red andblack). There is also a white wire, which will be your neutralwire. The green wire is your ground, and should be bolted to the body ofthe stove. (Most appliances have a location for attaching theground wire). When connecting your wires, there should be 3 wire locations. Youshould connect one of the two hot wires (red or black), then yourwhite wire in the middle, and then your other hot. The green willbe your ground. (MORE)
There is really no way to do this short of buying a phase converter with the proper kW rating to convert your single-phase power to three-phase. This route is seldom cost-effective. There is no 'wiring method' where you can simply hook up the wires and have it work..

Of the three conductors the combination is irrelevant except with respect to phasing and rotation. If the equipment requires proper phasing ( motors need to turn a specific direction), wire it up and "bump" a contactor. If the direction of rotation is not correct, swap 2 of the conductors. Do the sw…ap at the line side of the disconnect/ breaker, etc. In the case of an HVAC/R non -scroll compressor, rotation is not an issue.. One exception would be if the control system were to use one phase to neutral. This should not be the case as you specified 4 wire three phase, which implies the fourth conductor by code, is a ground and control is provided by two of the three conductors providing control voltage.

The correct answer to your question will depend on the exact location of the motor, its voltage and its power rating.. The simplest answer is to say "Check the wiring instructions for the motor." . They are all so different it's impossible to advise you without knowing the voltage it was designed… to run on.. It would help someone to give you a better answer if you also gave the make and model of the motor as part of your question.. . What kind of motor is it? You don't say anything about the voltage or phase(s) the motor was manufactured to run on:. is it for 240 Volts 4-wire (2 Hot wires plus a Neutral and a Ground) . is it for 3-phase (3 Phase wires plus a Neutral) If so, on what voltage? . is it for 120 Volts AC with a start-and-run capacitor (With wires for Hot, Neutral, Capacitor and Ground) . is it a DC motor? . .

Can you connect 3 wire to 2 wire House wire has black white and ground Appliance has black red white and ground wires?
Answer for USA, Canada and countries using similar 60Hz household electricity supplies . Just by asking this question that shows you are probably not quite ready to take on this particular task. The safest answer anyone should give you is NO, leave it alone , don't even think of doing this! … You may or may not get lucky and receive some more information in an answer here! If you hope to get enough information on this site to be able to do this job properly and safely, please do not rely on getting accurate information about such a potentially dangerous subject. Really, don't do this one yourself. Electricity is far too dangerous to handle if you have not been trained how to do this work. If you put just one wire in the wrong place you risk being killed by electrocution or you could even start a house fire. How to do this job depends entirely on the Wiring Codes or Regulations for the locality (Town/State) and on the exact location of the appliance you wish to install. If it is anywhere that is subject to water splashes or spray - such as in any room supplied with running water pipes, like a kitchen, bathroom, shower room, etc., or in a pool-side area - in many places nowadays it is actually illegal to attempt to do this kind of work unless you are already a licensed electrician. If you don't want to go to your local library or bookstore - to find and read some books about electrical wiring and appliances and how to install them safely, and to find out about your local Wiring Codes and Regulations - then the best advice anyone should give to you is to call a licensed electrician either to do the job for you or to advise you what you may be allowed to do yourself. The appliance needs a 240 Volt supply. The supply wiring described in this question could either be 120 Volt with ground or 240 Volt without neutral. To allow the new appliance to be used safely it needs to be upgraded or replaced by a licensed electrician who would install new wiring and circuit breakers along with an outlet that would all comply with your local wiring codes.

How can you wire a 110V plug outlet from a 240V plug outlet not speaking of a converter but actually changing the plug outlet so that there are no long term effects on the 120V appliance?
Assuming the wiring to the outlet has 2 loads and one neutral, isolate one load from the outlet and use the neutral as the common. be sure to ground from the receptacle to your conduit or ground lead. You should also replace the corresponding breaker with a 120 volt single breaker.
Need voltage and amperage to select the correct plug to tell you which pin the ground wire connects to.
If you are referring to a.c. three-phase systems, then a three-wire system is associated with a delta-connected system, while a four-wire system is associated with a star, or wye, system. The conductors being three line conductors and a neutral conductor.
A L14-20p is a 125/250 volt twist lock plug. I have never seen them used on appliances in the home. You may have the wrong plug for the appliance. See Discuss Question.
If you are referring to a 4-wire flat trailer cord then; White=Ground, Brown=Marker/Tail, Yellow=Left turn, Green=Right turn. If not, see the answer to the Related Question shown below.
If the plug is melting it is because of a heat build up caused by loose connections. If the plug is not a moulded plug check that the screws are tight. If it is not that, then the plug blades are not tight enough in the receptacle. Change out the receptacle on the generator. Draw a picture of the re…ceptacle and mark where each wire goes. The best way of doing is is when you have the new receptacle take one wire off of the old receptacle and put it in the same position on the new receptacle. Having tight blade connections will prevent the plug overheating and melting. (MORE)
You cannot wire a 4 wire dryer plug into a 3 wire outlet for mobile home use - (US NEC) - you must carry all four conductors all the way back to the distribution panel.. In a hard wired house configuration, if the dryer is designed to support it, you can replace the pigtail with a three wire pigtai…l, and connect neutral to ground inside the dryer connection panel. Check your local electrical codes and laws for specific requirements. (MORE)
To wire a 110v outlet to 220v the 220v source must have a neutral conductor that is 110v away from the hot leg. If you don't have the neutral, you must provide a new circuit. Do not just connect ground to the neutral terminal, as ground is not intended to carry current.
How do you connect a European 240V appliance 3 wire plug with black and blue and green wires to a US 240V circuit?
European wiring has two principal colour schemes: On appliances from the last 40 years, and recent fixed wiring: Live: Brown; Neutral: Blue; Earth: Green with yellow tracer On older appliances, and in older fixed wiring: Live: Red; Neutral: Black; Earth: Green OR Green with yellow tracer. … Until you can satisfy yourself (beyond any doubt) as to which wires on your appliance relate to live, neutral and earth, you should NOT attempt to connect the appliance. Either check the manual or contact the manufacturer. Also, depending on the appliance, you need to consider that the US uses 60Hz alternating current whereas Europe uses 50Hz. This may or may not prevent the appliance working correctly. (MORE)
I guess you are in the UK because other countries don't allow it. The brown is the live, that goes to the fuse, the green-yellow is the earth pin (the big one at the top), then the blue goes to the other pin on the left. Usually the brown wire is the shortest and the others a little longer and equal…. It is VITALLY important - for safety - to get the colours to the right pins. The plastic sheath that goes round all three wires should be fixed where the cable enters the plug. (MORE)
You don't. The plug (cap) has a different configuration between the two voltages. This is to prevent plugging a device of one voltage into a supply of a different voltage.
When you talk about a 220 volt wire and 110 volt wire, the reference is to the insulation factor of the wire. The amount of amperage that the wire has a capacity to carry is independent to the amount of voltage that can be imposed on the wire. When you see wire with ratings of 300 volts, 600 volts a…nd 1000 volts, these are the highest allowable voltages that can be impressed without going over the manufacturers recommendation of allowable voltages. A wire that is rated for 300 volts indicates that the wire is rated for 120 volts or 240 volts or 277 volts. At test research facilities, equipment is tested to destruction. The maximum voltage rating, that is given to the wire as a result of these tests, is the highest safest voltages that can be applied to that particular type of insulation material. So if you hear an electrician say a wire is good for 110 or 220 volts, what is meant is that the same wire can be used for either 110 or 220 volts. To answer the question, you don't need to change a 220 volt wire to a 110 volt wire because it is good for both voltages. (MORE)
Not sure exactly what you're trying to hook up but to give you an example - if you have an electric dryer with a 3 prong cord and want to use a 4 prong receptacle, you would really have to change the cord to a 4 prong.

You are replacing a 3 wire plug to a 4 wire outlet but the stove is set up for a 3 wire and you have a 4 wire plug to switch over but there is no place for the ground wire to go?
The range 4 wire plug kit should have with it a grounding lug that connects to the frame of the stove. If not buy a small #2 lug and bolt it to the frame of the stove. This is the attachment point for the fourth green ground wire from the new range cord assembly.
change the 4 wire stove plug to 3 wire plug! 25 dollars at most local stores.
US the black wire is your hot the white wire is your neutral in other words your load and the bare copper is your ground wire. UK The brown wire is live, the blue is neutral and the Green/Yellow is earth.
The fourth prong is a ground for the body of the dryer. The dryer will work fine with the 3 main ones. Building code requires the four wire plug now, but you can change it and the dryer will work.

You can not, a new circuit will have to be run from the electrical panel. Tanning beds which require four wire circuits, need a grounded conductor (neutral) that is not available with a three wire circuit.
Change the cord of the device to match the receptacle. This would assume no need for a neutral. Read your manual for power requirements.
This type of connection can be very dangerous. A proper double pole double throw switch must be utilised in this type of installation. This switch must be installed after the first over current device which is the main breaker in your distribution panel. Most houses today use a combination panel tha…t consists of the main disconnect built into the breaker section. As you can visualize this would become a major installation and revamping of your distribution service equipment. An electrician should do this work as a permit will have to be taken out because the utility company has to disconnect the power by pulling the electrical meter. Back feeding a house when there is a power outage can re energize the primary voltage lines that utility workmen might be working on. There are cases of linemen being killed by generator back feeding. (MORE)
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. Yes. this is a type of connection that is used to wire a split receptacle usually in the kitchen for counter plugs. Look on the back of the receptacle at the gold coloured screws, there is a tie bar that connects the screws toge…ther pry this bar out by wiggling it back and forth until it breaks. Connect the red wire to the top screw, the black wire to the bottom gold screw and the white wire to the silver coloured screw. If this connection is made without removing the tie bar, the breaker will trip, as you are putting 240 volts across the receptacle's top and bottom outlet causing a short circuit. Three wire circuits are also used to feed individual rooms fed directly from the distribution panel. The black and the white wire are used for all of the receptacles in the room. From the same cable the red and white are used for the lighting circuit in the room. The white wire being common to both circuits. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Black wire to brass colored terminal. White wire to silver colored terminal and bare wire to green terminal.
The voltage (AC RMS) between the "hot" wire and the "neutral" wire is 110 VAC (volts alternating current). But it should be noted that the "110" volts supplied to homes can range from 95 to 130 volts, with the present standard now being 120 VAC. In addition, if the circuits are wired in accordance t…o most local codes, the "neutral' wire is connected to the "ground" wire in the distribution (fuse or circuit breaker panel or box), so the 110 volts will also appear between the "hot" wire (black color coded wire) ,and the ground wire (bare wire, within an insulating jacket carrying the insulated "hot" and "neutral" wires). Note, however, that the "ground" wire is not designed nor intended to carry the "return" current from the "hot" wire, but only as a safety "ground" for currents due to shorted or improperly wired devices connected to the circuit.

A L14-30R is a three pole four wire grounding 125/250 volt receptacle. It is designed to supply voltage to a three wire system much like the connection to a range or clothes dryer. The generator connections to the back of the receptacle are; blade hole with indent inwards is the ground. Left (X) and… right (Y) of the ground pin is the 240 volt output. The last blade hole (W) is the neutral wire connection. (X) to (W) will be 120 volts, (Y) to (W) will be 120 volts and (X) to (Y) will be 240 volts. Check the nameplate of the motor to make sure that it is not three phase hence the three wires. Without more information about the motor a complete answer can not be given. (MORE)
In North America the only three phase supply that 120 volts can be obtained from is a 208 volt system. 120/208 is a common voltage connection that is used in many apartment and commercial buildings. The 208 voltage can be used in lieu of 220 volt appliance equipment and the line to neutral voltage r…esults in 120 volts. It is obtained by the following formula 208/1.73 = 120 volts. For apartment distribution panels, two of the three legs are used along with the common neutral. The main distribution is kept in reasonable balance by alternating different apartments on different legs of the three phase distribution service. (MORE)
Dryer plug three to four The cord that is on the dryer now should be changed to a four wire type cord. This is for safety's sake and it is highly recommended that it be done. Instructions should come with the new cord. Open up the electrical access panel on the back of the dryer. You will see a te…rminal block with three wires going into it from the plug cord assembly. A red and black and white are now connected to the terminal strip. Look at the position and colours of the existing 3 prong cord and how it is connected. Make a diagram. Coloured wires on the outside terminals, white in the center. From the center wire terminal you will see a jumper strap that goes to the frame of the dryer.

A four wire receptacle would normally be used in a poly phase circuit. For example, a 240 VAC branch will have two "hot" wires (conductors), one neutral (grounded) conductor, and a grounding conductor. Older circuits for dryers and ovens, for example, used only three wires. New NEC standards allo…w for the use of a four conductor arrangement so all conductors are delivered to the receptacles on the branch. When replacing the three wire receptacle with a four wire receptacle, you should run a new branch which includes all of the necessary conductors to make the connection correctly. Otherwise, connect only the three that you need. This is unsafe, though, since any subsequent homeowner may assume that the receptacle is fully wired (as they should). This would also be illegal in the eyes of the NEC. A four blade dryer plug is the new code and should not be changed to a three blade cord. What should be done is to change the three blade receptacle to a four blade receptacle. The only difference in the receptacle wiring is that the position of the neutral wire and the addition of a ground wire being brought out to the dryer on a separate blade to match the ground wire on the plug. Shut the circuit to the dryer to the off position. Opening up the receptacle you will find now two hot wires to the outside blades and a neutral to the center pin. Look in the back of the box and you will see a ground wire wrapped around a screw that grounds the dryer feed wire. From this ground wire add an extension of six inches. This new wire then connects to the fourth terminal on the new four blade receptacle. Looking at the new receptacle you should have the two hot wires on the outside terminals X and Y, white (neutral) to the L shaped W blade and the newly installed ground wire to the U shaped ground G blade. This receptacle is a NEMA 14-30R, 3 pole 4 wire grounding receptacle. (MORE)
