I'm restoring a vintage electrical appliance, sort of a proto-CrockPot from the 1940s.
It was very clean inside and the wiring looks shiny. But there is a loose wire hanging which I am almost certain I broke in the dis-assembly process.
so, just checking in for your expertise
There is the usual two-hole electrical cord. The device has THREE prongs though. You put the cord on the left two plugs for the low setting and the right two plugs for high.
No photos of the outside.
This is inside
Reading from left to right
- 1. skinny wire attached to first post
- 2. fat wire attached to the middle post
- 3. fat wire attached to the last post
- 4. skinny wire not attached to anything however there was a broken piece of skinny wire still attached to the middle post.
Although the answer DOES seem blindingly obvious, it is SO reassuring to be able to ask you. Not to mention my continuing quest to get my money's worth out of your engineering degree.
