An electric stove requires a 40 amp double breaker in the fuse panel. good luck. Also read the manual to make sure.

How do I make a 220 volt outlet where there is only 110?


what you need too find out is what is the amperage of the 220 oven and may have to run the proper size wire rated for the amperage back to electric panel to the proper size breaker the info should be on the name plate

I have a wood planer with a 3HP 220 single phase motor wired to 20amp circuit breaker in my house. I usually run the planer off a 12gauge extention wire about 30ft from the house plug. I would like to...


Look on the planer to see what the R.L.A. are, for example 16.0 amps. Set a box with 2- 20 amp fuses, or a double pole 20 amp breaker. Do not exceed the amperage of what the planer says on its data plate. If the R.L.A. is 10.0 to 19.3, use a 20 amp.

JUST PURCHASED A RELIENCE 602 ELECTRIC HOT WATER HEATER 50 GALLONS TO INSTALL IN MY HOME WHAT GAUGE WIRE AND BREAKER DO I NEED TO INSTALL


The hot water heater should come with an amperage rating on it.
They vary from 30 to 40 amps, and then 10 or 8 gauge wire.
(All hot water heaters are 220 volt.)
I believe the 602 uses a 4500 watt element.
Divide 4500 by 220, and you get about 20 amps.

If you want to be on the safe side, you go with the heavier wire, 8 gauge, and then go with the smaller breaker that is more easily tripped, 30 amps. That way you can switch to a 40 amp breaker in the future, without having to change the wiring. The goal is to always make sure the wire is rated higher than the breaker. You want you breaker to trip before your wire melts.
But technically a 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire would be fine for this heater.

And since it is 220 volt, you will always use a double breaker.
That is because 220 volt appliances don't use a ground, but instead use the potential between to power wires that are 180 degrees out of phase. AC always does a sine wave, and the 2 power leads coming into the house are always out of phase. When one is 110 volts up, the other is down. So the total between them is 220 volts. And the way they intentionally zigzag the breaker box, 2 breakers next to each other always are on opposite power lines.

If you have any doubts at all about 220 and water heater wiring, please ask again. Wiring is not hard, but you have to understand what you are doing, or else you can cause serious consequences.
For example, if you use wire nuts or wrap wire around a screw, you need to always turn them clockwise, so they pull the wire when tightened.
You also always need to ground the chassis with a green safety wire.
Since a 220 hot water heater uses 2 power wires and a safety ground, the white wire should be striped with a permanent marker, so that it is not confused with the white neutral wire of a 110 volt appliance.

Frigidaire range PLES399EC tripped circuit during baking and breaker will not reset


It may have burned up the breaker. Depending on how comfortable you are with electric, you may want to call an electrician, especially since you are dealing with 220.
The best way to tell if the breaker is bad is to disconnect the two load wires from the breaker itself. If it will then stay open, the problem is likely with the range- check for continuity between the load wires going to the range... if you get continuity call your appliance repair man. If the breaker still trips, you need to replace it Sometimes with 220 this happens. Make sure you know what type of panel you have (or bring the old breaker with you) when you go to buy a new one. Also make sure they installed the correct amperage breaker (I think it should be double 40 amp)...
As I said if you aren't comfortable with electric call a pro.

I need to install this range in a new kitchen and need to know the electical specs of the supply power


I don't see what range you're referencing. I see a title of microwave ovens. But, in any event, here's circuit requirement for each.

If it's a cooktop range: 220 volt 30 amp dedicated circuit

If it's a microwave: 110 volt 15 amp dedicated circuit

Haier Dishwasher hdp18pa - Power reset


Are you blowing a fuse or throwing a breaker? Either way there is a chance that no outlet you have chosen to test with yet is on a circuit with sufficient amperage-I had this with a microwave I recently had installed. If you have the manual, check for requirements regarding amperage. You then need to be sure you are using an outlet with amperage comparable to the requirements-this is on your fuse or breaker. If your requirement is, say, 20 amps, a 15-amp or less breaker or fuse is going to fail. I had to go to a 'clean' circuit from my garage with nothing on it to find out I did not have enough amps in my circuit. My solution was a dedicated breaker. Another option is to use my second option (which I did not need), to plug it into a gas generator with sufficient wattage/amperage. This ensures nothing else is on the circuit.

Failing all that, it could be the power supply for the washer, a circuit board issue, etc. Don't mess around if you don't understand electricity, though-it's not worth frying yourself.

Finally, if it worked ok before and this has just begun to happen, I'd tend to think it's an issue with the washer itself. Hope this helps.

Subpanel


the only way unless the existing wiring is long enough or can be re-routed to the new sub is to use junction boxes with covers and wire nut to connect the wires ( make sure that the wire is the same as the wire you are connecting to and install breakers to accommodate the amperage rating of the wire examples are # 12-20 amp, #14-15 amps , # 10-30 amps # 6 50 amps do not put any 220 volt and 120 volt in the same junction box and no low voltage wire in with 120 or 220 volt wires , if you will need to splice the range wire or any wire larger than #10 i would recommend replacing with new wire if this is not possible then use only connectors approved for the wire to be used .good wiring !

I AM LOOKING AT PURCHASING YOUR DOUBLE OVEN RANGE MODEL #PB975SMSS. MY QUESTION (MAYBE STUPID) BUT I LIVE IN AN OLDER HOUSE AND ONLY HAVE ACCESS TO ONE 220 PLUGIN. DOES THIS RANGE ONLY REQUIRE ONE 220...


yes it only requires one 220 plug in you might have to change the breaker to match the amp rating or not and you can bake in both at the same ok

Wiring a stove


If there is no 220 outlet in the location where you're planning to put the stove then you need to run wiring to the new location. There are two seperate phases of 110 volts coming to your home. The voltage between each of these phases and the neutral wire is 110 volts. When your house was wired only 1 of the 110 volt signals was run to your 110 volt outlets. In order to create a 220 volt outlet you need both of the 110 volt signals run to the outlet.

If you have a straight shot between your breaker box and the location where you need the 220 volt outlet then this is not too big a deal. If you have finished ceilings and walls inbetween then this will be much more difficult.

If you're not comfortable with electrical wiring this would be a good time to call a licensed electrician.
