Western Electric Trimline
« on: August 20, 2015, 06:33:22 AM »
I would like to request a very simple diagram of a Western Electric rotary Trimline. The phone is from January of 1970 and I have no idea what the "model" number is. Just the basics. It doesn't not have RJ-14 jacks, it is a single line unit. I was trying to clean up the wires inside the unit but I didn't take note of where each wire was to go

You probably have an AD1 tel. set base with a 220A hand telephone set.
See figure 15 here in this link to TCI library:

However, in the diagram (FIG 15), the black ringer wire is on G. In order for the phone to ring, you will have to do one of the following:

(1) Move the black ringer wire to L1 inside the phone
(2) Connect the yellow and green line cord conductors together at the wall (if  you are using the original style cord, with a large plug on one end and 5 spade tips on the wall end)
(3) Run a small piece of wire inside the phone to connect the L1 and G terminals
