User Manual: S14301030-018 Product

Posted by Stephanie Junek on

If you have a new house or a home built after 1996 with a 4-prong outlet, and you are using an older dryer, which is a 3-prong dryer plug. This adapter cord will help you connect your 3-prong dryer cord to your 4-prong dryer outlet. The difference between the 3-prong and 4-prong outlet is the ground pin. For your dryer to be grounded, please follow the instructions below:

1. Unscrew one of the screws on the outside of the metal dryer case. It can be any one of them, so long as it is touching the metal dryer case.

2. On the 5-foot green cable, there is a ground pin on one end and a ring terminal on another. The cable is marked with tags and you can see the image below.

3. Place the ring terminal on the screw, screw it back into the metal dryer case, and tighten.

4. Opposite the ring terminal is the grounding pin. Insert the grounding pin into a regular household ground pin outlet.

5. Plug in both ends of the adapter; the 3-prong plug from your dryer into the 3-prong end of this adapter, and the 4-prong plug into the dryer outlet in the house.

WARNING!! IF THE GROUNDING PIN IS NOT INSERTED INTO THE HOUSEHOLD OUTLET AND THE RING TERMINAL IS NOT CONNECTED AND TOUCHING METAL, YOUR DRYER WILL NOT BE GROUNDED.
