Wiring a Tanning Bed Outlet
[ad#block]Electrical Question: I have 10-2 wire to hook up a tanning bed on the outlet end. I have black wire on one side white on other and stripped wire on ground screw. Does it matter on breaker end which side the black and white wires go into breaker. I know the stripped wire goes on ground post in box.
This electrical question came from: Tim, from Indiana, Indiana.

I have 4 wires coming from a tanning bed: a red, black, white and green. I need to know how to connect these wires to the existing circuit wiring which consists of only three wires: a black, white and bare wire.
From what you have described your existing circuit wiring is not compatible with the tanning bed. Refer to the installation manual which came with the tanning bed where you will find the required circuit specifications. Most tanning beds require a dedicated circuit that is not shared. A 4-wire circuit indicates that a separate neutral wire is required for internal controls and operation, along with the appropriate circuit wires and separate bonded ground wire. The circuit wiring and breaker size must conform to the specified circuit as indicated in the installation manual for this tanning bed.
I hope this helps,
