Hello, fellow members. I have a pole lamp with a classic triac dimmer circuit built into the pole with a combination on/off/brightness knob that I am replacing the power plug on. It is a two-prong 120VAC, polarized power plug and the lamp has a warming label to make sure that it is plugged into the socket all the way (so as to have the correct polarity). Unfortunately, I cut the bad plug off, right straight up against the original plug and left with no physical clue what the polarity of the wiring was since the wire colors are identical and the cord insulation has no strips. Now I want to know how to determine which wire should be neutral and which wire should be hot before installing the new power plug. With the switch OFF or ON, none of the power wires makes continuity with the metal pole. One of the power wires makes continuity with the outside, threaded portion of the lamp socket (ordinary, Edison bulb socket), with the switch OFF and ON. Should that be the one that is wired to neutral, or do I have to look further? The other power wire makes continuity with nothing with the switch OFF or ON. Thanks!
