Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. It actually does not matter which connection the goes to either side of the element as long as the earth is connected where it should. The current can go through the element either way and it will function exactly the same.
