Is there an adapter for a 4-prong plug to fit a 3-prong 220

Have a 4-prong electrical plug, and is there an adapter to make it fit a 3-prong 200 outlet in the wall? I know the dryer plug can be changed, but is it safe for my 1 yr old Maytag dryer to use a 3-prong instead of a 4. If I do not have to change the plug, would prefer to use some kind of adapter between the dryer and the 220 outlet.

How do i hook up a3 prong 200 and 30 amp welder 200 e^x 4500 with a four prong female plug


You can go to any Boat Marina and they sell small Pigtail adapters for doing this sort of stuff. Very common .
You can possibly buy one for your application OR buzz out one of their adapters so you can go home and wire yours accordingly

How to Adjust an Air Compressor Regulator


  • Plug the air compressor into the appropriate electrical socket. There are a few air compressors that come with a 4-prong electrical cord, but most of them will come equipped with a 3-prong electrical cord. The 3-prong electrical cord is set for use with a standard 110 outlet. The 4-prong electrical cord is generally used for 220 outlets.
  • Turn on the machine.
  • The air compressor should be fill completely to the range from 100 to over 200 per-square-inches, depending on the unit capacity.
  • The manufacture guide will inform you which tools can be used with the unit once it has reached full pressure.
  • The tool should be connected to the air hose and the air hose to the compressor.
  • To drop air pressure you should turn the regulator adjustment knob counterclockwise and to increase the air pressure you should turn it clockwise.

I have a 3 prong wall mount outlet for my dyer and want to put in a 4 prong. how do I do it?


Veronica,
If you are talking about the outlet you plug your dryer into, that would require an certified electrician to make the change since that is covered by electrical codes. If you are talking about changing the pigtail on the dryer, you could do that yourself. Just remember to take the brass strip off that goes from the middle of power cord block to the ground. You have to separate the neutral from the ground in a four wire situation. Hope this helps!

I have a three prong plug washer/dryer but a 4 prong outlet need an adapter


YOU DONT ADAPT IT, U REPLACE THE RECEPTACLE OR USE THE CORRECT PRONG CORD. THE CORDS ARE NOT THAT EXPENSIVE FROM 20 TO 30 BUCKS AND EVEN CHEAPER ON LINE. IF U HAVE A NEWER HOME IT IS MANDATED BY LAW THAT YOU USE 4 PRONG CORD NOT 3 PRONG UNLESS THE HOME CAME WITH A 3 PRONG OUTLET.

The wall plug does not fit in the wall socket, it has weird prongs


If the power plug prongs are not the same as what you normally have, (assuming the prongs were not messed up, i.e. they are from a foreign country) you can get and use an adapter ... that fits the "weird prongs" on one side and has the "normal" prongs on the other side ... to plug into the outlet.

I just bout a new electric dryer but the plug thats on the wall will not fit so y went and bout a new plug but the new plug takes 3 wires and the in the wall takes 2 can i still use the new one


TO BE SAFE...I WOULD PURCHASE THE CORRECT PLUG WITH THE TWO PRONGS THAT FITS YOUR OUTLET!

IF YOU HAVE THE CORRECT PLUG... YOU CAN USE THIS ONE...BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO BREAK OFF THE GROUND PRONG BY BENDING AND WIGGLING IT, IT IS THE THIRD PRONG SEPERATE ON THE BOTTOM! IT SHOULD LOOK STRAIGHT & ROUND!

HOPE THIS HELPS...WOULD APPRECIATE A RATING...THANKS!

KIND REGARDS!

I have a Frigidaire FAFS4473LW Steam Washer- 3 prong. I moved into a new place with a 4 prong. Do I need a 4 prong cord, or can I change the 4 prong adapter on the wall?


Hi nancy huerta...

You can change the cord or the receptical...
It will be easier to change the cord...
Purchase a four prong plug cord that will fit into your receptical, then wire your dryer for 4 wire instead of three wire use.
To see a picture and explanation of how to wire your dryer for a 4 wire plug go to the following webpage.

What kind of plug do i need


Hello Chemille8314,

To determine what kind of plug you will need for the Dryer in question I need to know a few things. Is it an electric or gas dryer? What kind of receptacle do you have a 3 or 4 prong? On the front of the receptacle is will tell you what it is rated for 30 amp, 40 amp, 50 amp. You will need to find all of this out before any one can help you.

Post the answers back to this thread and I will let you know what you are going to need.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Swich 4 cord to 3 cord plug in


To switch from a 4 prong to a 3 prong. First remove 4 prong cord, save screws you will need them. Look a 3 prong, it will be flat with 3 wires next to each other with metal fittings on the ends. The 2 outside which are hot wires go to the outside screws on the block, and the center which is neutral goes in the center. The only difference in the cords is the 4 prong has a ground, in new construction this is code. You don't need a ground if house is wired for a 3 prong.
