I am German speaking, living in Switzerland, the "Wall-Outlet" gives us "Line-current of 220 VAC". You have 110 VAC ? Or also 220 VAC ? We have a simple "Test-Tool" - in the dix I find "Charge Indicator, Circuit Tester, Strain gage, Voltage Detector, Voltage Tester". A picture: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phasenpr%C3%BCfer#/media/File:Phasenpruefer_01-l_KMJ.jpg - If I push the tip of this little Screwdriver into the Wall-Outlet and put my thumb onto the other end of the Screwdriver -> if I push it into "POWER-Side": The little bulb inside the Screwdriver lights up telling me "ThIS IS POWER-LIFE-CONNECTION".
When You rewire the Line-Cord: The POWER-Life-Cord should run through the Toggle-Main-Switch and through the "High-Volt-Power-Fuse".
The pin runs "This way" or "The other Way" mounted (Life-Wire / Neutral-Wire) - BUT: Fuses should be in the POWER-LINE - a fuse should blow when "too much Power gets in" - NOT: "Too much Power gets in , runs through the transformer - and still "Too much" flows through the Neutral-wire back to the Wall-Outlet". Double-check for correct mounting !!!
