# What Watt Power Supply?

If you need to know what wattage power supply you need for your device and the label has Volts and Amps, use this formula to figure it out.

Multiply the Volts times the Amps and this will equal the Watts.

The label on the device should list these numbers.

### My problem is that Model 16N5-K, 120v 60Hz 12 amp Bissell Vacuum cleaner has no wattage indication in the unit itself, in the box, in the product brochure. our power output in the Philippines is 220v. I need to know the wattage as I need to acquire a step down transformer to be able to use them. I need to know the wattage of transformer before buying one.

All the information you need is in your text :>)

Volts, Amp Watts To determine the wattage, use a simple multiplication formula. The ampere (or amps) is the amount of electricity used. Voltage measures the force or pressure of the electricity. The number of watts is equal to amps multiplied by volts.

### Oster Fpstdh0101 4tray Electric Food Dehydrator wattage

well, I'm guessing on the tag or label it shows something like this
120V ~ 60 hz 10.5 amps or
120V ~ 60 hz 10.5A or
120V ~ 60hz 11A (some manufactures round up if it falls into the same wire gauge)
120Volts ~ 60hz 1260w or
120Volts ~ 60HZ 1260 watt
120V stands for normal operating voltage
"~" means ac current
60 herzts stands for how many cycles

So if your unit shows only amps, it's really simple to figure out wattage

take the voltage shown, in my example it's 120, then multiply the amps, in my example it's 10.5. So 120 X 10.5 = 1260 watts

W = V * A

and vice versus, if it only show wattage and you needed to know what gauge wire you needed to run a receptical to operate it

AMPERAGE = VOLTS / WATTAGE

### i want to find out how many watts does the kenmore 400 series uses

Maybe a dumb question, but what do you need a transformer for a washing machine? Washers typically plug into a standard 120 volt 15 amp outlet. To figure out the wattage, use the simple formula, P=E x I. There will be a tag somewhere on the machine stating current draw, which is "I", "E" is your voltage, and "P" is your wattage which is what you'll figure out after reading the label on the machine.

### Maytag MDB7100AWW Dishwasher how many minimum amps is needed

to find out the amps needed you need to take the wattage that is listed on the information tag on the door of the dishwasher. Take the wattage number and multiply that number by 1000. Take the figure and divide it by the a/c current used to run the dishwasher this total is the minimum amps need for the proper operation of the dishwasher.

Example 35 watts X 1000 = 35000 divided by power supplied say 120 volts 29.1 amps or 30 amps

Hope this helped

### Wattage

It should say on the label, but if not, you can multiply volts times amps to get the wattage.The power supply for these puts out 2 voltages (12V and 5V), so use 12 V to get a more accurate figure.See if your label has volts and amps listed, then multiply these to get wattage. Watt=Volt X Amp.
