A 3 wire dryer circuit is X-Y-N (usually red and black, and always accompanied by white).

Optional grounding may be accomplished by daisy chaining a separate ground wire from the dryer frame to a known ground.

A 4 wire (including ground) dryer plug may not be connected to a 3 wire circuit (without ground).


The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.

I think I will OK if I replace the metal handy box and plate of my adapter with plastic versions and ground the chassis of the generator.

Thanks to all those with constructive comments.
