Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
Hello, I have my Kenmore dryer 110.62612101 that I bought in Houston texas and I have now moved to Bombay India where we have 220-240V ac power supply. ideally I would like to use the dryer direct from the 220-240v mains supply - how would I connect the power in terms of the red, black, white connectors at the back of the machine?
alternatively I do have a 3KW transformer to step down from 220 to 110V and I could use this. In this case do I connect the output from the transformer to either the red or black and the other wire to the white (neutral) connector at the back of the machine? any help appreciated.
Bombay is 240v single phase, the three wires in the socket are active neutral and earth, not as the 2*110v90degree two phase American circuit active1 active2 and neutral
If the transformer is designed for American use, it does not step down 220v,
it instead takes a 2*110v90degree 2 phase supply and produces a high current 110v single phase output, by setting both input phases electrically 90degrees apart on a common primary winding.
This is not compatible.
replace the dryer, cheaper faster safer
should have left in Houston
