The drive motors for the washer and dryer run off 120 VAC, but the heating circuits require 240 VAC in order to work. You will need to have a 240 VAC outlet installed in order for the appliance to run properly. There is no conversion for this. This is the way the appliance was made.

I purchased remington shaver in US now it not working properly and not getting charged. where do i have repairing centre in hyderabad


Many Remington shavers sold in the US are only for use with 120V. Voltage in your country may be 220V-240V. If you attempted to use a 120V charger in your 220V electrical outlet without a voltage converter, you have probably damaged the charger.
Chargers can be purchased at shaveroutlet.com. You will need your shavers model number to select the correct cord. And, you may need to use a voltage converter if the replacement you get is for use with 120V

I HAVE THE WHIRLPOOL LER4634JQ0. IT SAYS 120V/240V. CAN I USE IT AN APARTMENT ?


Is your apartment wired with a 240V outlet? Ask your landlord. A regular outlet is 120V. Electric dryers use 240V, thus where you are plugging the dryer into has to be a 240V outlet.

The T104p3 timer is getting power but the clock won't turn and the manual switch also doesn't work. we had a power outage, and the timer has not worked since then.


If I understand correctly, your T104 240Volt Intermatic timer worked fine before.
Now the clock will not rotate.
The manual switch doesn't operate the load.

You checked for electricity.
But did you check for 240 Volts across terminals 1 and 3?
It sounds like the circuit breaker is tripped off on one leg so circuit has 120V and tests positive for power, but not 240V.
Reset breaker all the way over and then click breaker back.

Back to the timer.
If you test electricity at terminal 1 to ground and it reads 120V, that means timer is receiving power from one leg of the 240 circuit.
If you test terminal 3 to ground and it reads 120V, that means same as above.
But unless you test for 240V across terminals 1 and 3, the tests above mean nothing.

Let's understand 240V circuit.
You know all single-phase household circuits require two wires to complete the circuit.
Same is true for 120V and 240V circuits >> each needs two wires to complete the circuit.
Inside the main breaker box are 3 busbars.
There are 2 hot busbars and 1 neutral busbar.
120V circuit is complete with 1 hot wire from either hot busbar and 1 neutral from neutral busbar
240V circuit is complete with 1 hot wire from one hot busbar and 1 hot wire from other hot busbar.
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html

The 240V circuit breaker snaps down over both hot busbars, and then 2 wires come out of that breaker and go to 240V appliance, or to T104 timer terminals 1 and 3.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

If circuit breaker is not delivering on both those hot wires, then all along the way you can test for electricity and test will show 120V but not 240V.
So it appears as though circuit has electricity, but circuit will not operate until both hot wires are available to complete the circuit.

That's why you test for 240Volt across terminals 1 and 3
And also test for 240Volt across both wires at circuit breaker.

Going back to timer.
Unless there was lightning strike that fried insides of timer, but somehow left everything else untouched, the manual override should work if circuit has 240V, and Load (lights, motor, fan) is operable.

A simple test is to move circuit breaker wires to another 240Volt breaker and see if timer works again.
If breaker will not reset, you will have to replace 240 circuit breaker, or add a subpanel if your busbars are burned and broken.

No hot or warm water what is the voltage reading susposed to be on the heating elements? I have 122 volts on each terminal on both elements but no action, what am i doing wrong?


If water is totally cold, then upper element is not getting 240V. Since element tested for 120V, then that says upper element is burned out, upper thermostat is bad, or circuit breaker is bad.
Best thing is to buy multimeter and do 30 minute troubleshoot:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

Also read information below for understanding how water heater works.

Testing elements for voltage can be misleading.
If water heater has 2 elements, then tank is 240Volts.
240V water heaters have 120V on each element at all times.
So elements have hot 120V power, but they are not turned on until the circuit is complete with 240V.
Open following links to read specifics about 120V and 240V
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-water-heater-thermostat-works.html

240V is made from two 120V Hot wires from breaker box.
Each 120V line from breaker is called a 'leg.'
So 240V circuit has two legs, and both legs need to be turned on to complete 240V circuit.

Water heater thermostats turn off only one leg.
The other leg is Hot all the time.
So when you test screws on an element, for example test between a screw and any bare metal part of tank, then the screw will always show 120V.
That is just one leg of the 240V circuit.
But the 240V circuit is not turned On until both legs are connected.
Every residential circuit needs two wires to complete the circuit, and in the case of 240V, those two wires are both 120V.

When the thermostat turns on, it turns on the second leg to the element and that completes the 240V circuit.

I have a question, why there are 2 voltage in American market? where uses 110v, and where uses 250v? We are a manufacturer of power cords , power supply cords, we really want to know the difference ....


110V is our common household current and 220v is used where heavier voltage is needed, like ovens, stoves, clothes dryers, air conditioners, electric water heaters, arch welders, etc.

Electrical requirements for a Nexxt MO# WTMC 5321US


it would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.

Sears kenmore dryer 11064602300


Check the power input. perhaps one of the hot legs is not working. When I say this I mean that the dryer is plugged into a 240V receptacle (if you live in North America). This means that each of the hot slots are 120V. The heating element uses both of these for a total of 240V, but the controls use only one for 120V. The element may seem to be working, but it could be only half-voltage.

Or it could be a faulty timer circuit.

Notsure if this is my washer


sounds like a electrical problem. you should check the terminal block and cord to make sure there is nothing wrong with it. Burned wires etc. and also that the cord is properly attached. I would also check the voltage across the end terminals (red and black wire) and make sure there is 240v across them. then red to netral and black to netral should be 120v.

Fixed power cord, clock works, doesn't heat


SkyKing, are you handy with a meter? sounds like you are losing a leg of power here. Check for voltage at the terminal block (where the cord hooks up. You should read, 120V from left to center, 120V from right to center and 240V across the two outer terminals. Check this first and post back. Catriver.

Dryer won't heat


Jess, the model number comes up as a Crosley electric dryer. Start first at the terminal block where the cord attaches. Should read 120V from each end to center and 240V across the two outer. If this is ok, check the thermal cut out, this will be the top limit switch on the heater housing. Should read closed. Ohm out the element itself with the wires off, should show continuity. You should have 240V across the terminals on timed dry. If that checks good, go to the motor harness. One leg of power to the element goes through that switch. Check that all the wires are intact in the harness and reseat it. Check these things first...Catriver...post back.
