Appliance Repair Wiring Diagrams

Appliance Repair Wiring Diagram

Appliance Repair Wiring Diagram

 

A wiring diagram is a convenient way of showing which components are present in an appliance, and how those components are connected together electrically.

Just as a road map helps you to get where you’re going, a wiring diagram helps you follow current flow and identify problems.

It is important to realize that wiring diagrams, or “schematics,” identify electrical connections and current flow, but they do not represent actual locations, distances apart, or component placement (unless noted on the drawing). Nor are they drawn to scale.

They do tell you what components are used and how the electricity should flow.
