You need an electrician to come in and run a 240 volt line for you behind the dryer so you can plug the dryer into it,even if it were a gas dryer it's not wise to be using any other cords other than the cord that's on the machine,if you already have a plug there set up for a 4 prong cord you can buy a new cord anywhere,home depot,hardware store or appliance parts store but you don't want to use any extention cord

You certainly need a 30 amp breaker for something that uses 26.6 amps. You also should provide heavy enough wire. 12 gauge.

The unit rated at 3 HP at 115 volts draws 13.8 amps is odd, a HP in watts is 745 and should be about 2200 watts and 19 amps plus a efficiency loss. Odd to see the ratings don't jive with electric theory/formulas.

The compressor should be connected directly to the wall and if using an extension cord, the cord needs to be #12 AWG or larger to avoid line voltage loss and over amping of the motor.

Here is contact and support info: For more information, please call 800/4-MAKITA (800/462-5482) or visit makitatools.com.

My bottom line is, A 115V motor circuit needs 10 amperes per horse power or 30 amp circuit for 3 horse power. Using extension cords calls for upgrade in wire gage of the cord. The advantage of using 230 volts is it cuts the amperes in half and allows use of smaller gage wire. Watts, or volt amperes is the product of volts and amps.

Your question was worded poorly and it's difficult to understand what you are asking. As a guess, if you are looking for a 30-amp adaptor cord set, perhpas this will work:

If it's a 3-prong adaptor:

Camco 55333 30 AMP 3 Prong Generator Adapter

Or a 15 to 20 adaptor:

You must first determine if it is 30amp of 50amp service. If it is 30amp you will need a 30amp RV receptacle. 30amp receptacles are 110vac. DO NOT WIRE THE PLUG FOR 220! It will damage the converter and possibly more. If it is 50amp the it will be 220vac. Most power cords are 25' for RV's. When you go beyond that distance then you will experience voltage drop which could present problems with breakers overloading and tripping. With that being said, your local RV parts department will sell extension cords for RV's. To determine what amperage your trailer is, there is usually a decal above the plug port that will identify. The main breaker will also give you a clue as to the amp rating. If you have the power cord, look at the male plug end and if there are three brass terminals it will be 30 amp, if there are four terminals it will be 50 amp.

There is a voltage drop, excessive voltage drop in the circuit.

Anything else on that circuit?

Is the circuit wire size #12 awg thru the complete circuit to the outlet?

Any extension cords being used?

Voltage drop is found in high amperage loads. A motor needs about six times the motors rated full load amps value. Drops found in long runs of wire, in loose connections, in smaller Gage wire than needed.

The power outlet in the garage for the compressor may need the next size wire, #10 AWG. Try using a circuit breaker rated for air conditioning use, they have a trip delay.

The fill would depend on the wire type because the type of insulation determines teh circular mills of the conductor here are some examples though of THHN,THWN,THWN-2 wire.

Based on NEC2008 Annex TableC.1

Make sure that you are plugged into a 20 amp circuit minimum, if possible use a 30 amp circuit. Next, are you using the cord that is attached to the unit and only that cord? Do not use a regular extension cord unless that cord is rated at at least 20 to 30 amps. The ac unit will draw alot of power at the initial startup in order to start the compressor and using an extension cord is not recommended. If you are doing these things correctly, cord from the unit and the proper rated circuit, the problem may lie in the ac unit itself. There is a capacitor that needs to be checked to be sure that it is functioning properly, cost is around $30. The next thing to have checked is the compressor itself. Good luck.

look on the motor face plate for its F/L/C/full load current rating,and go by this,otherwise to be safe use 2 # 10 AWG for the 240 lines L1 and L2 and a #12 AWG for the Neutral line and a 30 Amp double pole circuit breaker

Nozzle,

AWG Ampacity from table 450-5b of the National Electric code states the maximum ampacity;

12 AWG = 20 Amps

10 AWG = 30 Amps

8 AWG - 80 Amps

According to this, an electrician would pull 10/3 (or 8/3) for a dryer service because 12/3 is not allowed (by LAW) for this application.

Hope this helped,

SG
