Ok, on your internal terminal block for the cord – you will install the middle (neutral) wire on the center post. The other two on the outer posts. Does not matter which wire goes where on those outer posts. But now you are going to use the bonding strap to bond the center post to the casing of the unit. See pic for example of this.
This will ground the casing of the unit in accordance with the 3 wire installation.
Hope this helps you out, if you should need anything further please don't hesitate to ask. Have a great night!

First take the green wire and bring it over to the white wire. Then terminate the wire label (N) on that middle terminal. Then terminat the other two wires in any order to the black and red wires on the terminal block.
I do apologize, but we are unable to give out our phone numbers. Let me start again. Before even being concerned with the 3 wire cord you currently have, we need to prep the unit for a 3 wire set up. In order to do this, the green wire in the unit, needs to be moved over to the place where the white wire is. So you will have the white and green wires physically connected to the middle terminal. Now with this wire moved over, you will have 3 places to connect your wiring from your new cord. The (N) will connect to the middle post where the green and white wires are now connected. This will be what provides the ground/neutral to the unit. Then the outer wires on the cord will then be connected to the red and black wires that are left over.
