Question about Remington HC-600 Hair Trimmer
Remington model HC-100 haircutter/beard trimmer 120v 4w 60hz listed 300a --- I plugged it into a 220v outlet (I am out of the US) with a 220-110v 50-2000w converter. When I turned it on it blew a fusebox fuse, made a popping noise and stopped working. On opening the trimmer I found that the solder has been melted off of a wire inside between switch and motor.
I re-attached the wire and plugged it into the 220v outlet this time with a step down transformer (220-110v) rated (up to) 500 w. I turned it on and it did the same thing as before with the same results.
Question: what type of converter should I be using and should the trimmer work if I re-attach the wire again and use the correct converter?
Scrap the trimmer...
probablly damaged beyond cost of new one
a step down transformer would have been a better choice than a voltage converter ( not trying to be a wise guy here)..
