Note to Installer – Be sure to leave these instructions with the Consumer.
Note to Consumer – Keep these instructions with your Owner’s Manual for future reference.
TOOLS NEEDED
• 1/4″ Nut driver
• Phillips screwdriver
• Wire cutter (For direct connect applications only.)
CAUTION:
Disconnect the electrical power
supply before wiring connections.
IMPORTANT NOTES
• This kit is for use with 230/208 volt 5200, 5500, and
7500 Series GE Zoneline units only.
230/208 VOLT ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
A power supply kit must be used to supply power to the
Zoneline unit. The appropriate kit is determined by the
voltage, the means of electrical connection, and the
amperage of the branch circuit. See the POWER
CONNECTION CHART to confirm the appropriate kit.
• This unit must be properly grounded.
• The electrical rating marked on the previously installed
Zoneline and power supply kit must be the same as
the supply branch circuit.
• Aluminum building wiring may present special
problems—consult a qualified electrician.
• All wiring, including installation of the receptacle,
must be in accordance with the NEC and local codes,
ordinances, and regulations.
• Use ONLY the wiring size recommended for single
outlet branch circuit.
• Proper current protection is the responsibility of
the owner.

1. Measure 7″ down the cord from where it emerges
from the back of the yellow 9-pin connector and cut
the cord through at this point.
2. Carefully remove 6″ of the cordset insulation
so as to expose the three insulated wires.
3. Strip 3/4″ of the insulation away at the end of each
of the three wires (L1, L2, and Ground).

6. Use the round knockout at the bottom of the junction
box to attach conduit coming from the branch circuit.
Leave 6″ of wire free at the end of the conduit to
allow connections to be made.
4. Remove the unit front panel by removing the filter,
taking out the four front screws, the upper two
screws from the top of the panel, and the shipping
screws on each side, if present. (Discard the two side
shipping screws, if present.)

7. Make all wire connections by using appropriate UL-listed electrical
connectors and techniques.
8. Select the applicable wiring situation and follow the instructions accordingly:
• 1-Phase 220-240 VAC
When connecting the Zoneline to a single-phase circuit for
230V applications:
Connect the white and black leads of the Zoneline power supply kit to the branch
circuit L1 and L2 leads. (The white lead of the power supply kit should be
identified by the installer using electrical tape with some color other than green or
white.) Connect the green lead of the power supply kit to the power supply and
branch circuit ground.
• 3-Phase 208 VAC
When connecting the Zoneline to a three-phase circuit for
208V applications:
Connect the white and black leads of the Zoneline power supply kit to the branch
circuit L1 and L2 leads. (The white lead of the power supply kit should be
identified by the installer using electrical tape with some color other than green or
white.) Connect the green lead of the power supply kit to the power supply and
branch circuit ground.
• 3-Phase 208 VAC with “Crazy Leg”
When connecting the Zoneline to a three-phase circuit with “Crazy
Leg” for 208V applications:
Connect the white and black leads of the Zoneline power supply kit to the branch
circuit Neutral and L1 leads. (The white lead of the power supply kit should be
connected to neutral.) Connect the green lead of the power supply kit to the
power supply and branch circuit ground.
9. Be sure that all wire leads are inside the junction box and not pinched
between the box and the unit. The green insulated ground wire from the
Zoneline MUST be connected to the branch circuit ground wire.
10. Plug the 9-pin connector into the 9-pin receptacle in the junction box.
11. Replace the junction box cover by replacing the two screws removed
earlier.
12. Replace the case front panel by replacing the four front screws and
the two top screws. Replace the filter.
