The machine has five wires, three of which are live. I want to wire into a single phase supply using a three prong plug.
It powers a boiler and water pump (for an espresso machine: 220-240V, 50/60Hz, 0.190Mpa/0.65Mpa, 3000W).
The advice I received was to twist the three live wires together and wire them all to the one live prong.
The problem I have is that the the three together is to thick. Is there a way to do this?
Solution: what I found was a connector (not sure what it's called) big enough to take the three wires together with a single wire coming out the other side. Someone else suggested 'wrapping' two of the wires around the third.
