Maxstar 200 How to check if cord is wired properlyI bought a used Maxstar 200 Str. By all rights it looks almost brand new... but I have an issue. I popped open the plug end because there's a leviton 6-50 on it in the 30 amp configuration ( horizontal blades, same width, I need 50 configuration) and noticed that the power cord must have been swapped out at one point? According to the manual online, the wires are supposed to be color coded.. but all I have are three blacks and a green/yellow striped. I think I was supposed to find a white, black, green, and red. Now I'm in the "just-purchased a used machine, nervous stage." I'm thinking about opening it up to see what's going on inside before I power it up. I've heard the Maxstars/Dynastys will still run if they are wired wrong inside the machine but could cause faults, eventually. SO if anyone has a photo of the stock power block inside, or whatever it is where the input power is wired to the machine, I'd like to see a photo. The manual makes only references to the colored wires so I don't know what I'm dealing with on the plug end or what I'm looking for on the inside of the machine. I'd rather not put all faith in whomever swapped the power cord and put the plug on before me. I just want to make sure I have everything right.Also, on the current power cord ( 3 blacks, one green/yellow) how do I know what wire is what? Are the individual insulated wires labeled so you can tell the blacks apart from each end? I think I saw a 1 on one of them but haven't removed old plug yet completely. I'd prefer not to take the cover off if I don't have to, and I have no idea how difficult it is to access the terminals but this is making me nervous/ I'm also wondering why an almost brand new machine has a non-oem cord on it? Any feedback would be appreciated. Anyone know how long the stock power cord is? I suppose it's possible they wanted a longer cord...but heck, that's what extension cords are for, right? I dunno. THX.p.s. I submitted this question on ww too.
