Hello I have been given a Whirlpool bath with pump and electrics by Koller. Need to test it to make sure it works before getting the bathroom electrics sorted for it. Have attached a 3 pin plug to the power supply but don't know about connecting the power supply to the pump. The wires were disconnected from the pump when I was given it. The screw terminal block has 3 open positions on the left for me to choose from but which colour wire do I put in which position? With many thanks
Just because its electric sadly does not mean it must be wired "Thus" If you get it wrong there will be a bang, a very big bang, I would suggest you get in touch with the makers of the pump / look on their website for a connection diagram.
As Mr white states, a connection diagram is required , to make the correct connections. Mixing up Polarity ( live and neutral connections ) can be dangerous, and can also damage the item you are attempting to operate. As always if there is any doubt, you should get in an electrician.
