Clothes dryer or electric range power cable? Cord is not secured and clamped properly. Can’t tell for sure if the neutral is actually connected to that bus.


Red is Load 1, Black is load 2. Ground and neutral appear to be tied in at the terminal strip, although the yellow looks like its not screwed down and loose.

Best I can do with the pic.

Big Box? Big Picture … for sure.


Can you re-size it smaller and make it not 'inline' for those on dial-ups?

Not a problem for me, I have DSL, but others, would take them forever to download that pic, and they do not have a choice since it is inline.

Thanx Paul for the resize…fortunately I am also on dsl…otherwise I would be here a week downloading that pic icon_lol.gif


Be nice to know what this device/appliance is....

Best I can tell is there is a bonding strap and it appears to be properly grounded.....hard to tell if the neutral connection is touching the strap or not....


It is obviously missing it's access cover and....there is no connector securing the cable to the opening and preventing it from damage....

Oops I'm a sparky who put my 2 cents in...so sorry...but you know me I couldn't resist.

Mike,


Now that the photo has been resized. how about deleting it from your post and just referencing the post below with the photo.

Again, thinking of the dial up users.

Mike,


You gotta remove da bonding strap on the four wire installation. Then you gotta connect the grounding wire to the appliance case.

I am a dial up.

Joe

You are correct.

This is a dryer deliver to a home and the delivery guy 'installer' told the homeowner that if it was not changed to a four wire system it would void the warranty.

Also note that the white and green are under the same lug.

I just got a kick out of the installation from this 'expert'.
