Tie all the black wires together and connect to the black power wire coming from the switch. Tie all the white wires together and connect to the white wire coming from the switch. If this does not work then what you have is a switch leg going to the light. This will be just a white and black wire coming from the switch with another power wire going in. Look at the switch and see if you have a white and black wire connected to the 2 screws. if so this is a switch leg. You will have to disconnect all the black wires in the light mount and find which one is carrying power in. Let me know what you find and we will proceed.

I'm looking for help. Installing a Woods 59007 timer. It has 4 wires, red, black, green, white. My current electrical setup is a black, white, and ground wire in the box. How do I hook this up? T


Hook all the white wires together.
Hook all the greens or bare copper wires together.
Hook your hot black to the timer black.
Hook your black wire that goes to your light to the red switch wire.
then try the switch if the light doesn't work switch the red and black switch wires around black to light red to black power.

After removing my old two globe bathroom light I found one red wire, 2 black wires and two white wires, the two black were capped off. How do I hook up a three bar light that has one black and one white...


Hello. Since the two black wires were capped off, leave them that way. Now hook the red wire to the black in the light bar and the two whites to the white in the light bar.
That's it. Regards, Joe
ps kindly rate my answer. thank you.

Need a basic diagram to wire a ceiling fan.


Depending on how your place is wired will dictate the solution here.

The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

I need to know how to wire the plug into the back of the dryer


Current electrical codes require a 4 wire hookup for all dryers. There needs to be a separate ground and neutral. If you do not know how to hookup the 4 wire version, it is worth calling an electrician to install the correct wires. If there is a problem down the line, the improper installation will invalidate your insurance claim. Dan

Electric stove top


Follow the wire, It should go to a junction box within 4 feet. It may be behind a cabinet. Remove the box cover and unscrew the wire nuts. It usually uses armored wire and this is clamped to the box. Release the clamp . Turn off breaker or remove the 2 fuses first.
