SOURCE: 03 Trailblazer Blower Resistor connector different

the resistor you bought is for manual heating, your three wire is more a module then a resistor. you need the module for the automatic heating system, automatic heating has a digital display and manual has sliders.

SOURCE: i have a newer radio and want to install it, but

use a volt-meter or test light to find the positive supply power from your vehicles wires, and the ground wire too. attach those to the new radio's power wires (and attach the new radio's ignition power wire, or switching wire to the positive power wire from your vehicle too). The point will be to get power to the new radio so that you can do a trial by error to find which speakers turn on when you connect them. Just follow the sound! after you have found all the speaker wires. the last thing is to find which wire from your vehicle needs to be attached to the ignition wire on your radio. This wire makes sure your radio is off when your keys are turned off so not to drain the battery. if you cannot find a switching ignition wire, run a wire to a connection in the back of a fuse panel connection (which you can test any connection with your volt meter to see if it shuts off with the key.

Craftmade CA3-RC Artisan Door Chime


AC is likely to be the alternating current supply from the transformer.

I suspect two pairs of AC terminals are provided to allow one of two different chimes to be selected with one pair and the common being used for the 4 chime pattern and the other pair and common used for the 8 chime pattern.

The front, side and rear terminals are self explanatory connections from each bell-push with the supply (or return) or other wire from each bell push connected to the COM or common.

The manufacturer's website doesn't feature a wiring diagram though might send you an instruction book on demand. The site does include a note specifying only 18 gauge wire is to be used...

How do i fix my doorbell


99% of the time, you need a new doorbell button
Also check if any circuit breakers are tripped
Check GFI breakers in baths and kitchen

Real-estate lady answer: buy a new doorbell button and connect 2 wires on back of new button.
Doorbells are low voltage and not dangerous.
If screws are loose in the holes, break off toothpicks in hole so screws have something to bite.
You need small screwdriver:

Repairman answer
Doorbell problems have 3 parts
1) The button
2) The chime or bell located in house
3) The 12V or 24V transformer located in attic or basement
4) rarely the wiring because it's low voltage and does not get hot

1) start at the button.
Remove button from wall
There are two LOW-voltage wires on back of button
Remove 1 wire and touch other wire, copper to copper
Does doorbell ring? Do you see a spark?
If bell rings, then button is bad

2) Chime or bell doesn't ring when button wires are crossed
Take cover off chime
The button works, so have helper push button while you're looking at chime
Can you hear any noise? Have helper push button on-and-off
Chimes have 2 or 3 wires >>> 2 wires if only front door has button, 3 wires if back door also has button
Take one wire loose and scratch it across each of the other wires
Remember front button is held down (or front button wires are twisted together)
Can you see a spark when wires are scratched together?
Try this with more than one wire ... but don't mix up location of each wire
If you are getting a spark, then chime is getting power, but it's not working
Replace chime

3) Transformer in attic or basement looks similar to this:
f6ff230.jpg
Use a wire and scratch across both screws to see if you get a spark
If you get a spark ... and the crossed wires dont ring the chime... and there is no spark at chime, then there is a bad wire
If no spark at transformer, then check circuit breaker
At last resort, but new transformer at Home depot in the doorbell section near light department

Installation of wired doorbell


yes it is very simple. All you have to do is connect either the two red wires together or the two black wires together and put the other remaining two on the doorbell chime to the common and front terminals. Here is how it works. One red wire leaves the transformer. It connects to the other red wire going to the pushbutton. When you press the button the voltage comes back to the bell on the black. You have the other black from the transformer on the bell so that completes the circuit. The only reason I say to put either the two blacks or two reds together is that way you're sure to have one wire from the transformer and one from the doorbell. Not a 'pair" of wires from each. 5ec779c.jpg

The doorbell buttons and your receiver must be on the same channel. If you will get out the directions that came with your unit, they will describe the process to go through to reset the specific "codes" for your buttons and receiver.

I changed the batteries on my door bell, and it still wont ring


Troubleshooting
Chime does not sound:
• Make sure the doorbell button and the chime codes are the same (See pages
2 and 3).
• Check orientation of doorbell button battery (See page 3).
• Check the doorbell button and chime batteries, replace if necessary.
Batteries seem OK, but the chime does not work when installed:
• Do not mount the chime or doorbell button on metal or near metal studs. This
reduces the transmitter range. Use 1/4" to 1/2" (6 to 13 mm) wood shims to
move the chime or doorbell button off the metal surface.
• Don't mount the chime too close to ground level concrete slabs. This may
also reduce the range. Mount the chime away from the floor.
• Try different locations for the chime closer to the doorbell button. Also try to
orient the chime at a different angle to increase the range.
The range of the doorbell depends on location, temperature and battery
condition.

Need a wiring diagram for installing a EJ500C in place of a 3-way


Locate the COMMON wire
connected to first old switch.
It might be attached to a different
colored screw, or find
markings on old switch.
Connect BLACK wire from
switch timer to COMMON
wire, using a twist connector.
Connect the other two wires from the old switch to either the
BLUE and RED wires from the switch timer.
Connect the ground wire from the box to the BARE COPPER
wire on the switch timer. If there is no ground wire, ground the
switch timer to the box. If the box is plastic, connect the bare
copper wire to ground as supplied or contact an electrician.
Locate the COMMON on the second old switch of the 3-way pair.
Connect jumper wire (supplied) from the COMMON terminal
to either of the other terminals on the remote 3-way switch.
Make sure all twist connectors are tight.
Tuck wires into wall boxes leaving room for the devices.
Mount the devices into the wall boxes, then install the wall plates.
Turn power back on at the service panel.
Make sure the switch timer displays “MAN” mode. Do the following
test with the remote switch in each of its 2 positions:
Press the NEXT ON/OFF button on the switch timer several
times. Each time that you push the
NEXT ON/OFF button, the
switch controlled light or device (the “load”) should turn on
or off. If so, proceed to Section 3.
If the timer display changes between ON and OFF but the
load does not operate, re-check your wiring and make sure
the load is functional.
If the timer display changes
between ON and OFF but the
load only operates when the
remote switch is in one of
its 2 positions, you need to
turn off the power at the service panel, change the jumper
wire to the other terminal. Then turn power back on at the
service panel and repeat. good luck

Help - I am trying to install a honeywell RLV4300A


You will have to have schematics from the old wiring diagram. Then you will have to confirm its consistency with actual old wiring before you can be sure that the wires run to the proper places on the old heater and a/c system. This sounds like a gas furnace and is simpler than a heatpump. Once you know what distinguishes the wires with the same color, you should label them and then you may call them a different color if they were wired with wrong wire colors. You may be in luck if you go to the furnace control box an look at the terminals.. They are usually labeled with a R for Red and W for white and Bl for Blue and B or Black. If you have other colors on these then it sounds that it was wired with wire spare wire by someone who knew what they were doing but neglected to leave a path for someone else follow.
You may be able to use a continuity tester of circuit tester to id these wires that are in question...
ie, once indintified, you can match with the requirements of the new stat.
