Default Porter cable 892 wiring question?

Need help please! Can anybody here take off the cap of there 892, take a picture and show me which pin this wire goes in. This is a brand new router and looks completely different to others that I have seen on the web. The power wire has come out and there are 9 possibilities as to where it could go. Any help would be appreciated.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Hi Jamey and welcome. I would also get PC to repair it. If it came loose once it may do it again. The connector it goes into may be bent up so that it won't grip the wire properly.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Can you see the other side of the plug? Which pocket has a wire that does not mate with the three that are plugged in? If you figure out where it goes, there should be a locking tab on the back of that connector pin that is hanging out in the breeze. Bend it up a little before shoving it in and gently pull on it to make sure it is locked. It is more than likely that only one of those empty pockets has anything to connect to. Looking and probing should quickly show you which one it is.

Thank you for all your quick responses. Unfortunately I canít send it back because itís my fault. I took it apart to thread the cord through a hole of my dust collector and thatís when the wire was pulled from its pin. Iíve called Porter Cable and the have sent in my request but we all know how tech support is so Iím not putting to much hope in them. I have also checked all the pins to see if maybe only one pin had a connection but it looks like they all will connect to something and I canít find any evidence that might show me were it was pulled from. What I really need is a picture under the cap of a newer 890 series router. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all the quick responses.

Actually, it is not your fault. The wires should be securely locked into the socket. Apparantly that one was never seated correctly and probably only half mated with with the the other half.

I agree with N/A, the wire never should have pulled out. If it can pull out then it might not have had a good connection which can cause arcing over time and a burned connection which can lead to total failure in a few ways.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

It is highly unlikely that anybody would let you peek inside. While I do have issues about doing it, as a last resort, buy one, peek inside and return it. Lowes or HD never make much of a stink about returns. They will just ask if it is broken or you changed your mind.
