You don't. There are only 3 wires in the box, while a 4 wire outlet requires 4 wires. All new wire would have to be pulled from the panel into the outlet box.
The red wire on a 4 prong dryer plug has been cut. How do I wire it now?
What if the dryer still doesn't turn on after doing everything correctly?
I have a four plug cord and 4 plug wall socket except only 3 wires go to the wall plug. The dryer plug fits the wall plug but when running, arcing occurs from the supply lines. Is this safe to use?
I'm converting to a four prong cord. My dryer has a "but-in" green wire (with a yellow stripe) already screwed into the frame. It is not part of the new four prong cord. Where do I attach the green wire that is part of the new four prong cord? Do I just overlap it with the existing green cord?
There is a green wire that is coming from the dryer and connects to the frame. Should it be moved from the frame to the center wire?
I am changing a four prong to a three prong, but the green and white wires from the cord were both attached to the center connection on the dryer. There is a green screw on the dryer with a white wire going into the dryer, where to, I can't see. Was this dryer previously converted to a four prong? Not sure what to do about the ground. I was told by the previous owner the dryer is 4 or 5 years old.
