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 cord should have a green,white,red,and black wires in it. Green is ground, white is neutral, and red and black are "hot". On the plug the green terminal is for the green wire, the silver terminal is for the white wire, and the brass terminals are for the red and black wires. Simple job for a pro and will cost little. If you have to ask and depend on the answers from people like me… Read More

Make sure the circuit breaker is off of course, and hook up the black wires on your dimmer to the existing black and white wires… Read More
I am changing a 3-prong to a 4-prong on a Speed Queen dryer. There is no indication as to color-coding for the wiring. Also there are 2 green screws instead of one. How do I decide which wires to hook?
The forth wire is to ground the body of the dryer. The cord should have red, black, white, and green wires. Red and black are hot, the white is neutral, and green is ground. The red, white, black in that order or reversed, black white, red, should go in a row where they connect to the dryer with the green one probably above it. If the center neutral lug has a bond to the chassis… Read More

The cap has the… Read More

How do you wire duplex receptacle using14-3 wire Also with 14-2 wire The wires are already ran to 15 amp breakers and capped off. i would like to hook them up. Thank You?
Sort of confusing are you using 14-3 just for the receptacle with 14-2 to the breaker or the other way around. Either way doesn't matter since you only need 2 wires and a ground for the outlets. The 14-3 should have Red, Black, White and bare wires. 14-2 should have Black, White and bare. All you need are Black, White and Bare. Forget about the red one. Hook the two outlets together with short jumper… Read More

The fact that it's supposed to. Voltage is stated as the difference between the two wires carrying electricity to the load. When they bring power to the house from the utility, you get two wires carrying 110v but they're 180 degrees out of phase. Imagine one carries positive 110v and the other carries negative 110v. If you hook one of these wires plus a neutral (zero volts) to the load, you get 110v--110v over 0v… Read More

I just did this with a vintage black phone which looks to date from the '30s (NOT the lighter plastic mid-century model, though this might work as well). twist the red and white wires together and attach to the red line on your phone jack, and twist the green and yellow wires together and attach to the green line on your phone jack. this gets a dial tone, as well as a ring. if you… Read More
How do you hook up a 3 way switch if you have three wires showing and two wires are black and one is white in a 40 year old house?
First check with a volt meter to see if there is power to any of the lines. If there is, turn off the breaker! It can kill you! Typically the two black wires may be the transport wires between the two switches for three way. You may have to check this by opening up the other switch and checking continuity between the two switches on each wire.
Im adding a new ceiling fan in my living room i pulled the old fixture down i noticed 2 sets of 3 wire BWR and 1 set 2 wire BW BW going to the wall switch how should you wire in the fan?
White is for neutral on the fan, black is power for the motor, and red is power for the light. If the power from the switch only has two wires (black and white), you would hook up white to white and hook black and red from the fan to the black wire from the wall switch. This means that you'll be powering the fan and light on the same switch and to change the fan… Read More

First you need to determine what the wire "pairs" are used for. Typically a light circuit uses one of the pairs for power source and the other for the switch leg. Determine which pair is the switch leg (a multi-meter is useful for that) and which is the power. Connect the white of the switch leg to the black of the power leg, then connect the remaining black and white to the black and white… Read More
S/B small Metal cover on front bottom right side. Simply open cover, be it snap off or small screw. Then use existing HARDWIRE (romex) and twis the black existing to the black on diswasher, the white twist to the white, and the green should have a green screw in the same area you opened at bottom right to secure. The green would be the ground for safety.
The presence of the red wire in a light switch situation usually involves a 3 way switch. The light itself would only have the black and white running to it but the switches have the extra wire between them for the traveler.
