Received part quickly. Since my old block was badly corroded the screws/clips where wire was attached broke. Can I put new clips on end of the wires? Also where does the "contact" part go? At the rear... where wires attach? What do I do with the white "card" piece packed with mine? Thanks.
Answer Hi Cape. Yes , new clips will work great. They will be best soldered if possible. You can use a crimp tool and work as well as long as you only strip enough wire to insert the stripped portion fully into the crimp terminal end. Then use the tool to fold (Crimp) the open end onto the wire correctly. The crimp tool is part # MA-30428. Insulated Female terminals 3/16" is part # TJMA03018-1. Insulated female terminals 1/4" is part # TJMA02588-1. The card is not shown on our breakdown. Was there installation instructions @ this card? Possibly it was only used so the packaging /shipping would "rigid" the package for shipping purposes. Thank You.
Please instruct me on the terminals to which I connect the pigtail on a Maytag Clothes Dryer.
Answer Don, Here's some help," 3-wire or 4-wire Plug Connection Four-wire cord is required for mobile homes or where codes do not permit grounding through neutral. 1. Remove access cover from rear of dryer. 2. Use a strain relief and insert end of power cord through power
supply hole. 3. Use the three screws from envelope located in the drum to attach the remaining power cord wires to the terminal block as
follows: • Red wire or left side wire terminal to “L1” terminal (left side outer terminal.) • Black wire or right side wire terminal to “L2” terminal.(right side outer terminal) • White wire or center terminal to Neutral terminal (center terminal). • 4-wire Plug Only—Remove
ground screw and detach ground wire from bulkhead. Attach power cord ground (green) wire to rear bulkhead using ground screw. Attach
free ground wire, previously attached with ground screw, with white wire to the neutral (center) terminal on the terminal block." Good Luck and Thanks
