I'm replacing a plug. I don't know which wires should go where. The new plug has green screw (ground), a silver screw (?), a brass screw (?). Where should I put the black (hot) into the plug. silver or brass screw. Does it matter which one.

Hi Philr,

Yes, it does matter.
The hot goes on the brass colored screw.
The white goes on the silver screw.
The ground wire goes on the green screw.

hello philr,
yes it does matter what wire goes where.
the black or red goes to the gold screw, the bare goes to the green screw, and the white goes to the silver screw.
