Thread: Newbie Wiring Diagram

  1. Default Newbie Wiring Diagram

    Folks,

    I just received my 225 LX and am in the process of hooking it up. The wiring is pretty straightforward, but a few things confused me, so I constructed this simple wiring diagram for myself. I'm posting it for two reasons: 1) for pros to check over before I have my electrician make it so, and 2) to help someone down the line going through the same thing.

    If you see any mistakes on this let me know and I'll modify it accordingly and repost so other folks have a reference.

    Cheers,
    TY

    You have a RED wire? Anyone else have it?

    My 250EX has a Green, Black, White, and Red. Green is ground, Black and White are power. I taped back the Red.

    The diagram would look better if the ground going to the panel did not sort of point up into the breaker, get rid of the upright line heading towards the breaker and terminate it with a ground symbol saying panel ground. At least that's my view of it.

    Performance - good catch. The 225LX doesn't have a RED wire, it's a typo - they are BLACK, WHITE, and GREEN. I'll fix.

    Geezer - another good catch - will fix that too!

    If you get it worked out, I might just add it to our next manuals. lol. It'll save time for me.

    Mark and co.

    I've incorporated the comments received so far (see below). Feel free to use it anyway you want and if you want the source file just let me know.

    Now... if you could just find someone who knows how to write to fix the Chinglish instruction manual we'd all be better off. Some of the stuff in the manual I received with my 225LX had my eyes rolling. No offense to the original author... I could do no better if I tried to write Mandarin!!!
