Central vacuum outlet wiring problem


Hopefully this is the correct forum....I had to replace an outlet for my central vacuum system, but when I hooked up the wires the way they came off the old outlet, the vacuum turns on. There are two wires for each screw and I was careful to keep them in the correct order. Do I have an incorrect outlet for the system and if so, can I change the wiring to make this work? Thanks for any help.

Central vacuum outlet wiring problem


No replies needed, thanks. After reading a few posts on this subject, I realized that I HADN'T been so careful with keeping the wires in the correct position. Once I put white with white and black with black, it all works fine.
