I picked a William's 1974 EM - and the 2 prong line cord was pretty crappy. So I went looking through this thread for tips.
I found a couple of things in my machine which confuse and/or concern me.
a) There appears to be a green ground wire near where the 2-wire line cord comes in but it's obviously not connected to the 2-wire cord. It's just capped off. (see photo)
b) There was a green ground connected to the transformer - but someone clipped it clean off. (see photo)
c) There was a green ground wire that came up in the bundle to the start button, but that was clipped off of something too (see photo).
d) There is a green ground wire attached the plate the power switch is mounted on (no photo).
So I have a couple of questions -
1) Why would have someone clipped those connections?
2) What was the ground wire in the bundle near the start button attached to? The leg (front left)?
3) Where else should I look for clipped ground wires?
Thanks for any help or tips -
