    Hi Robert,
    When wiring a 4wire circuit the ground and neutral wires should be separately terminated appropriately, not together, unless otherwise instructed in the installation manual for the equipment. The circuit wiring to the receptacle should also be checked to make sure the connections are correct.
    Thanks for sharing your question about circuit wiring a tanning bed,
    Dave

  2. Robert Redding says:

    My wife recently purchased a used tanning bed from a tanning salon. The bed is good and everything was working. It has the 4 wire cord on it. I wired the 30 amp twin pole breaker with the ground and neutral together to ground. As soon as I turned the breaker on, it tripped. Do I need to separate the ground and neutral or is this ok? My wife said when the breaker tripped she also saw a flash at the plug. HELP, So she can get to tanning!
