SOURCE: On the outlets it has 4/120volts outlets and

The reason for the 120/240 volt outlet is to be able to run things like large electric heaters or even your clothes dryer as they all require 240 volts. If you use it as 240 volts you will not have maximum current output on your other outlets so you wouldn't be able to plug anything really big in. And yes you can only use is as a 120V output if you would like but you will need a special attachment or extension cord. I'm going to leave you with two reference pages I looked up that you should have a look at.

I have a 12 inch chraftsman table saw with 2 wires coming from motor. The wiring diagram inside the cap shows it to be wired for 240 how do I wire that thru a switch and to a three wire recepticle


Not quite sure what your question is - Are you trying to plug a 240 into a 110/120 outlet? Or are you trying to plug this into a 240 3 prong outlet?

Traditionally, table saws don't come with a power cord - you must supply one. Usually on the motor there is a metal plate that describes volts/amps/phase/hp etc. Get the Volts/Amps from this plate, then measure the approximate distance between your table saw and the 240 outlet. The gauge of the power cord depends upon the Volt/Amps and the length of the cord. There are many volts/amps vs length for wire gauge conversions on the net. I always get a bigger wire (smaller gauge) than what is recommended. Expect to pay $100 or more for the cord (don't be cheap here). If you have an under rated cord, you can start a fire, burn up your motor, melt plugs into outlets and have to replace the outlet (don't ask how I know).

I'm a little suspicious of the "white and black" wire from 240 - it's usually "white and red" with a "black" ground. 240 is made from two 120's - opposite sine wave. So black is usually the common ground, while the white and red are the two 120's. Volts between white-red=240, white-black=120, red-black=120. If you're absolutely sure that white-black=240, then you can just connect a ground wire to the motor case. Many home table saws can be wired for 240 or 120 - you need to make sure that you're hooking 240v to the correct wires. If you're uncertain at all, then don't do it.

I have wired 120 to a 240 motor by accident and the motor ran - it had no power and didn't spin at full RPM. You can damage a motor this way, so I wouldn't recommend it. I have never put 240 to a 120 motor - so I don't know what happens (guessing you could burn up the motor coils).

With all that being said, if you have 240 outlet with 3 wire receptacle, then just use a multi-meter to determine the 2 "hot" and the 1 ground. Volts from hot1-hot2=240, hot1-ground=120, hot2-ground=120. If you don't have a multi-meter, buy one (approx $12). Once you have it wired up, then try the motor by flipping the switch on then off again. If the motor didn't spin, then you did something wrong. If it hummed but didn't spin, you have some connections wrong inside of the motor. If it spins the wrong way, then your wiring inside of the motor is wrong (doesn't help to flip the wires on the outlet). If you blew a circuit breaker, then the wiring to the motor is wrong.

Can i change the plug socket over from 110v to 240v supply on my HR2470T-1/1


It would not be OSHA approved if in the US in an industrial location.

While not recomended practice, it can be done in the US to run off of 4 wire 240. You are just connecting to one half of the 240 outlet.

If you are in the UK or elsewhere with 240/250 volt mains- do not do this, use a voltage reducing transformer instead..

In the US, the standard is 120 /240 Or put another way- a 240 volt circuit in the home in the US, has 2 120 volt branches that share a common return, the 240 is derived across the 2 "120 sources"- hence your 2 pole breakers on 240 volt branches. If the socket is 3 terminal- which was old code- ground and the return were common at the outlet, it is a matter of just making sure the 240 volt plug terminals the 120 volt drill gets attached to is the ground/return (the one with the nib on it to make it index correctly in the outlet- (should be the wide blade lead or white and one black in the drill goes to either"hot" side of the plug- either one will work, and only one. On a 4 wire outlet, which is new code- the return goes to the white wire of the drill. And the black goes to either one of the hot sides. If drill has conductive case and grounding wire- that should connect to the outlet ground.

Mark on plug which two blades are used, so if you take it somewhere else, you can check (which should be standard operating procedure) with a meter to make sure their outlet is wired correctly.

Kenwood VR-715 reset?


Hello llarosa,

Yes, there is. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then
plug it back in while holding down the POWER ON/STANDBY key.
That will clear the contents of the memory, reset the microcomputer and take the unit back to factory settings. Hope this helps. Let me know.
