    I picked up my KS100 from the head unit by mistake and the whole head pulled loose. All the wiring in the head unit pulled loose.

    Internet search does not help with the wiring. Anyone have one of these that can take a picture of the wiring in the head unit for me?

    Thanks. Just need to confirm that the two white wires from the lower connection are earth. The top motor unit does not have an earth so does not make much sense, but then none of the RO wiring makes much sense. The KS100 head unit seems to have been made by someone with six inch skinny fingers to get into the head unit.

    Mine has RED and BLACK coming from top. From bottom RED, BLACK single wires and two WHITE wires. These look like they should join at a 3 way connector. Connected RED and BLACK up and fixed WHITE in the spare/earth connector.

    Did a quick test and seems to work ok. Just want to confirm all is ok before i swich on again.

    Ok, problem solved. Top wiring are RED (Live) and BLACK (Neutral) as is normal. Bottom are BLUE (Live), WHITE (Neutral) and BROWN (Earth).

    I have an RO skimmer neck cleaner which has the same wiring.
