SOURCE: generator 4 prong220v outlet to 3 prong 220v plug

Go to your electricians store and ask if they have a converter plug, Don't go to a Homedepot type place, go to the specialty place where electricians go. Their depth of knowledge is way better.

Puts put power on the 110V outlets but not the 220V outlet


check the changeover switch and wiring if that's ok then you will need to check the coils on the alternator when using 110 it runs both coils in parallel but when using 220v it runs both in series if one coil is out you will get nothing

I have a 4 prong tanning bed 220v and my appliance outlet at home only accepts the 3 prong plus such as the ones you see on a dryer. How can i get this converted to a 3 prong so that i can plug it in? Or...


It is because you tanning bed requires L1 and L2 (240V) and a seperate neutral, and a ground. You need an electrician to install a proper outlet. A dryer (years ago) was installed without a neautral. However per NEC electrical code even new dryers have to have 4 wires. Do not attempt to use on 3 wires !

How can i go from a 4 prong 220v outlet generator to a 3 prong 220v plug for oversea appliances


Last time I was in europe, they were using AC current at 50 cycles.If you check the specs. on your genset I think you will find it is a 60 cycle AC generator. If I am correct,you can slow down the genset to get the 50 cycles needed but then you would need to adjust the field excitation to get the voltage back up. Then change the outlet to a european type that you should be able locate on line or through an electrical supply house.

Hi, i have a dream machine sony ICF-c218 by mistak connected to 220v the original transformer is 120V & i also would like know the output voltage of this transformer so that i can change it 220V p


My self sushil from india pl.find the details
yellow-blue is 3.2 VAC
red-white is 4.2 VAC.
Clock is well functioning without frequencies difference error. I think the clock is using crystal for pulses generator instead of AC power supply frequency.

On our 6250 Generator, the breaker pops continually. This happens when running only lights on our RV, or when using it to run a water pump. It will run just fine and then the sound changes and the...


You will have more available power (and use a different larger breaker already on your generator) if you use the 220 plug instead of the 115v plugs. Have an electrician make you an breakout box separating the 220v plug into two 115v outlets. Or your can replace the push button breakers with better quality 25 amp. Problem is that the 115v receptacles are probably 15 amp. Other solution is to try a 220v pump instead of 115v (more efficient draws less amps). Good luck

All our our Panasonic Split Type air conditioners in our plant do not operate when power source is taken from a power generator set but the Carrier brands operates well. What could be the reason for this...


The genset power most likely is 220V line to ground power. You utility power is 220V line to line but uses 2ea 110 VAC line inputs to get that 220VAC. The only way to correct this is to reconfigure your generator connection to 220V line to line IF possible. Some generators that only have a 220V output. Re-configuration is not possible

Measure power at the breaker on gen power as the source and again with the utility as the source. You will see the difference in voltages. Utility power.... each side of the Breaker output to ground = 110V across the 2 terminals 220V

Gen power one side of the breaker output = 220V other side = ZERO.

You can make it work but it would take some heavy duty relays in a power sub paenl so that when the generator is running one side of the power is 220V and the other side is Ground. Once utility power is restored the relays would disengage and power would again be 220 VAC line to line.

You will need a licensed electrician and a PERMIT to install a relay panel such as I mentioned above. Improper wiring of the power relay swtitching panel can cause major power problems in any given installation and trip the MAIN PWR breaker.

10,000 watt generator 220 plug doesn't work


Most generators have several circuits incorporated within the windings. There are usually two 115v windings, one or two windings that produce power and sensing voltage for the regulator that supplies power to the armature (produces magnetic force) and sometimes a 12v winding to supply power to charge the battery. The two 115v windings power one 115v plug each and together power the 220v plug. Each outlet has a breaker and or ground fault. Since the 115v plugs are working indicates that the 220v plug must have an open/broken wire or faulty breaker. Easy to check, however you must open cover to wiring compartment and trace wires. Should be easy fix. You do not have to start engine to find broken wire. Use ohm meter instead. With engine off, Insert probes into 115v plug and obtain ohm reading. Then insert probes into second 115v plug and obtain similar reading. Look for same reading at the 220v plug (remember 2 circuits of 115v, ground and neutral). Good luck with your repair and email if you have other question.
