SOURCE: i want to convert a kitchen plug from 110 volts to 220

Hi Dave,

If you bought if from Nespresso, they have branches in both Canada and Europe. They have a nice flashy website at

I had no luck accessing the Canadian site, but was able to get the US site. I didn't find alternative plugs under the Accessories page, but you might try the toll-free number offered (on the US site, it's 800.562.1465, but may be different for Canada). This probably makes the most sense of all.

If for some reason this can't be arranged, you're back to considering third-party solutions. As a non-electrician in another country (though the our respective electrical codes are being harmonized), I'm responding based upon my own experiences working with appliances and having re-wired my house some years back (yes, legally; it passed inspection). Take it for what it's worth.

My experience with using small portable transformers is that you need to be careful that they are properly rated for the job. I don't know if you have Radio Shack(tm) or a similar consumer electronics parts & accessories retailer in Canada but they might have a product that will suit your needs - you'll have to ask them. I've bought converters there for 12V systems (from 110V-60Hz - standard US electricity), so they might be an option for you. This is what I would recommend first, and probably the only reasonable choice (short of getting a different machine).

In order to convert one of your wired plugs to 220V, you would need to run separate wire from the breaker panel, and have a separate plug, and it still wouldn't fit the Euro-style plug unless you rigged an adapter. You would need to ask a local electrician or your local electrical inspector whether or not this would even be allowed in his/her jursidiction. I don't see it being an intelligent solution, certainly a lot more trouble that I'm willing to do for a cup of coffee. Besides, it's not just the voltage, as I recall, European electricity is geared towards 50 Hz, not the 60 Hz typically found on this side of the pond.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance,

SOURCE: TTR 90 wont start. Not carb. Not CDI. Plug cap?

Every component plays a part in the ignition system. Check the wiring as you go. Start at one end and move forward. You have done a lot of work so far. so you should be close. If the igniter is fine and the other components too. Then it would narrow it down to an electrical problem or no signal/pulse to the coil. See if the coil is receiving that pulse. you can use a test light for this test. Pos. will be power and NEG. will be the pulse. With light on the NEG. crank the engine over and see if it flashes. Let me know how its going.

SOURCE: i need a wiring diagram for a kobalt 60 gallon air compressor

If it's a 220 volt motor, hook l1 and l2 (220 volts) to the line terminals. If it's a'dual voltage' motor (120 or 220)and you want to use 120, hook 120 to the terminals marked 'line'. Make sure the motor is connected for the voltage you're using if it's dual voltage.

SOURCE: the lights are working for power and gas pressure

No, Try changing the tip. The one under thr node cone. If it burns back it will concave and increase the gap between the work and gun tungdten electrode.

Your plasma has a start arc pilot inside the machine, this one must be faulty, check your owner's manual and request the part to your nearest welding store. It is easy to replace.

My Thermal Dynamic Drag Gun Plasma Cutter runs but cant blow its arc. Bit of spark, Bit of air, then just refuses to blow its arc. Was working well and with new tips and electrodes but then just refused....

There is no mention of the Thermal Dynamic's gun model, but i will suppose that it is a SL60 or a SL100 which are replacement guns for any model of plasma using the proper adaptor.
Your problem could be the start cartridge which go bad now and then when the gun is used as a replacement of a hammer to make the cut piece to fall.

The way to check if your start cartridge is in good condition is by checking the low part of the cartridge, push it up (or down depending on the way you handle it) it should freely slide inside and return out.

Good luck.

How do u change from 110 to 220 volts. Do u just

There should be a wiring diagram label on the inside cover that tells you where to connect the leads for 220 volt operation. I assume you do not have the manual, so you can also call 1-800-332-3281 for Hobart assistance and a manual.

Thermal dynamics cutmaster 50 2004 yr.

Check contacts in tip and be sure it is all lubed correctly. If you have good air pressure and flow it should arc after pulling the trigger for about 2-3 seconds.
