Do you connect the white wire to the black wire?
In some cases in residential wiring you do. From a light fixture junction box to a switch box, the cable is a two wire, black and white. To connect the switch into the circuit at the fixture box, the "hot" conductor is connected to the white wire that goes down to the switch. The switched "hot" comes back on the black wire and this is then connected to the fixtures black wire. The white (neutral) is picked up in the fixtures junction box and connected to the fixtures white wire.
How do you install a ceiling fan that has green black blue and white wires to a junction box that only has black white and bare wire?
Connect the green wire to the bare wire in the junction box. Connect the white wire to the white wire in the junction box. Connect the black blue wires to the black wire in the junction box. The black is usually the fan and the blue is usually the light on the fan. They seperate them in case you wish to hook the fan/light to two switches.
The black and white (neutral) wires connect to an unswitched voltage supply. The red wire and the same white (neutral) wires connect to the load.
It doesn't connect to either. The red wire must connect to a red wire from the breaker box. If you only have black and white wires from the breaker box and the baseboard heater has a red wire something is wrong!
At the lights there is a black, white and bare wire from the supply. With power off you would break the black (Hot) connection at wirenut. Then you just need to run a wire to and from the switch. Assume you use standard Romex with black, white and bare wires. Connect the black wire to the black wire from supply. Connect the white wire going to the switch to the black wire going to lights… Read More
Run a wire from the light to the switch. At the light connect the black power wire to the black wire to the switch. Not wrap some black electric tape at each end of the white wire going to the switch (This indicates that the wire is potentially hot and not a common wire). At the switch connect the black wire to one side of the switch and the taped wire to the other side… Read More
Using 14/2 or 12/2 wire, black, white and bare. Bring the hot/black wire in the light down to the switch on the black wire, through the switch and back to the light on the white wire. Connect the white wire in the power wire to the white wire in the light. Connect the white power wire from the switch to the black wire in the light. Run the black and white wires in the first… Read More
The brown will connect to the redblack wire and the blue to the white
I assume that you have an un-switched Hot (Black) and neutral (White) power in a box where you want to put a light (1st light) and two other lights you want powered by a single switch. Run a Romex cable with Black, White and Bare lead (14 gauge for 15 A circuit or 12 gauge for a 20 A circuit) to the switch. At the powered light connect the black wires together with a wire… Read More
connect black to black wire, connect white to white, and green wire to bracket that came with light,and to bare copper wire that should already be in light junction box.
Connect black to black, red to red, and white to green.
Yes-connect the black wire to the brass terminal and the white wire to the silver terminal.
white wire to black and yellow to blue
How do you wire a series of recessed lights to a single switch when the power goes to the lights first?
The switch goes between the supply and the string of lights. If the supply is in a ceiling box you need to run a 3-wire cable from the switch to the ceiling box. Since your normal Romex cable for residential use has a black, white and bare wire you would use them as follows: At the switch connect black to one side of switch and white to other side.. Wrap black electric tape around white… Read More
Connect the black & blue wire on the ceiling fan to the black wire coming from the wall outlet. Connect the white to the white and green ground to copper ground.
In most motion sensor switches you will have three wires. A black, white and red wire. The black and white (neutral) are used for the electronics in the sensor. These connect to the incoming black and white power. Connect the lamp across the red and the white (neutral). When the sensor detects motion the red wire becomes "hot" and the light will go on.
Black would be hot, white would be hot, and green would be common. Four wire is usually two hots, a common and a chasis ground. Just make sure you don't connect one of the service hot wires to the green wire. So, if you are wiring this to service with black, red, white, and green (bare) wires, you connect black to black, and green to green. The white wire of the cooktop connects to the… Read More
How do you install a ceiling fan with black white green wires when the junction box has black white bare and a red wire?
White = neutral. The white wire of the voltage in simply connects to the white wire of the fan. The green wire of the fan is the equivalent of the "bare" wire of the voltage in. Tie them together or connect both to a metal junction box. The black wire from the switch (voltage in) should be the "switched" leg of the circuit. If the fan has both a black and a red wire, they… Read More
The neutral wire and power wire are never connected together.
You connect them in parallel. For the first outlet connect black (Hot) to the brass colored screw, the White (Neutral) to the silver colored screw and the bare wire to the green screw. Do the bare wire in such a way that you can also attach it via a wire nut to the supply wire bare wire for the next outlet. Then connect the Black and White of this supply wire for next outlet to… Read More
Two wires are hot and are usually Red and Black. Connect the white wire to neutral and green wire to ground.
Imagine a section of railroad track where the rails are the power source and the ties between rails are the lights. The rails will supply power and let's label them the black rail (hot) and the other rail white (neutral). The earth they are resting on is the ground (bare copper wire). So each light must be connected to black, white and ground. To switch all lights at once we need to open the connection… Read More
How do you connect the new fixture with one black and white cable if the old fixture has 3 bulbs with individual black white and ground wires?
Connect the white and black wires back on to where the other black and white wires connected. There should also be a green pigtail coming out of the fixture which will be the ground. If it has a chain, then the wire running through the chain will be the ground wire.
Connect black to black, red to red, white & green, to green.
You run a greater potential for being shocked if you connect the black and white wrong.
You put switch in series with the black supply wire and the black wire to the first light. Then connect black wire of first light to black wire of second light, black wire of second light to third light and so forth. Do the same with the white wires and ground wires.
Can you connect a 3 wire 120 Volt with ground to a 2 wire House wire has black and white and ground Appliance has black red white and ground?
To answer this question fully the type of appliance has to be stated and its voltage.
In a household circuit, with a "hot" conductor insulated black and a white neutral, the black wire should connect to the center terminal of the socket. The outside part of the socket usually has a brass screw (for the black wire) and a nickel screw (for the white wire).
Connect them in parallel. The black wire from the ballast to the black line wire. The white wire from the ballast to the line neutral. Connect the ground wire to the ground screw which is located in the body of the fixture. Grounding of the fixtures is essential.
Connect all white wires together under a wire nut and push them back into the box. Connect all ground wires together and then connect them with a jumper wire to the ground screw on the switch. Connect black power in and power out, if applicable, wires to the bottom screw on the switch. Connect the remaining black wire going to the light to the top screw on the switch.
If the cable you are trying to connect the dryer up to only has a white, black and ground wire, then the dryer is not going to work. The cable needs to be a three wire, the ground wire is never counted when discussing house wiring. Open up the electrical access panel on the back of the dryer. You will see a terminal block. A red and black and white connect to this terminal strip… Read More
How do you find a wiring diagram of wiring a light with an on-off switch using wires coming from an outlet?
First you need to make sure that you are not overloading the existing circuit. Typically lights and outlets are on separate circuits. Check local electric codes. Basically you have three wires in outlet (black = hot, White = neutral and bare wire is ground). The wire must be rated for the protecting breaker. AWG 14 for 15 A breaker and AWG 12 for 20 A breaker. Extend all three wires to a switch box by… Read More
You can't. You first figure out what the red and black do and why there is no white. Then you call an electrician to explain grounding/earthing wires and how to get a proper ground to the green wire before someone is electrocuted.
If you connect the ground wire to the hot wire it will trip the breaker. If you get the white and black wires reversed it will still work but does not meet code.
Assuming the wires are the correct gauge for application and breaker you use black and white wires as hot. Put red electrical tape on each end of white wire and connect red and black to the breaker output and bare wire to ground lug in panel. At receptacle connect black and red to hot contacts and bare wire to ground lug.
If you are referring to lamp cord type wire where both wires are brown then yes, connect the wire with the groves to the white neutral and the smooth wire to the black hot wire.
If I am correct I think you are wanting to know how to connect a 3 way switch where you can turn off an light at 2 locations. At one switch you run a 12/2 wire from the switch to the light. There is no power at this switch. At the other switch you have your a power input wire. Run a 12/3 wire from one switch to the other. Connect all the whites together… Read More
The 1964 VW Beetle ignition switch only has three wires. Connect the red wire to the positive post. Connect the black wire to the negative posts. Connect the white wire to the auxiliary post.
to wire a 3-way like this you first need to run 14/3 romex wire from the light box to each of the 2 switch locations. at each switch connect wires as follows: white wire to common screw(usually black or brass) connect red and black wire to silver colored screws, does not matter which way. in the light box you need to identify you incoming power, once you have identified that wire connect one of the… Read More
Yes, that is the correct connection.
If you want to control the new light off of the existing switch then connect a black wire from the new light's black wire to the existing light's black wire and the new's white to the existing lights white wire and grounds to grounds. Or if there is no existing light; connect the black wire from the new light to one terminal screw on the SINGLE POLE switch (but not the green grounding terminal) The… Read More
House wire is "line" Black & White house goes to Black & White of Timer; the "load" (e.g. Pond Pump, etc.) is connected to the Red & White. Specifically, put all 3 whites together (nut or terminal); House (source)(line) Black to Timer Black; and "load" Black to Timer Red. The Red wire is the "Timed" (switched) hot wire.
You switched the power and switch wires. There should be two sets of wires in the ceiling box. 2 black, 2 white, 2 bare. Two groups of three. The white wire going to the light is the incoming wire. The black one in that group is the power coming in. Take that black wire and connect it to the other black wire. The second black wire goes to the switch. The power comes back to… Read More
Just simply, connect all the black wires to the black wire coming out of the connector, and all the white wires to the white wire coming out of the connected. Use the blocks with screw in to connect them (pick them up from most car accessories shops like halfords, wilcos....etc).
Black wire to the brass colored terminal, white wire to silver colored terminal and bare wire to green screw.
If they are in the same outlet box simple use jumper wires to connect them together. Connect ground to ground, white to white, and black to black. If they are in different boxes then run a wire of the same gauge size from one box to the other.
The new cooktop has a 4 wire connection. Red & Black are hot. White is neutral, and green is ground. You existing panel is wired with 3 wires. Black & Red are hot and green is ground. There is no neutral wire. Connect the black to black, red to red, and then connect the white and ground together at the plug.
If the wires are incorrectly connected the idea is that it will blow the fuse.
Let's assume they are all switches in the same box for simplicity. If at different locations you just need to extend wires. The supply has a Black, White and bare ground wire. You basically connect the supply White wire to the white wires going to each light. Then you connect the Black wire for each light to one side of each switch. Then Connect the supply Black wire to three pigtail wires (These are short… Read More
I am guessing that your 3 wires are black (hot), white (neutral) and bare or green wire (ground). Connect black to black, white to white and ground wire to the metal case of swag kit.
Have 3 lights Power to light 1 Need to connect light 2 then light 3 then down to single pole switch How do you wire?
You would wire the switch to the first light. Code says to break the black or power side of the circuit. Connect the white to the light. Take the black down to the switch on the black wire and back to the light on the white. This is a line of wire from the light to the switch. From the first light, take the white and the return white from the switch to the second… Read More
