Question about Morphy Richards Accents 44744 4 Slice Toaster, Copper

# Voltage change to 120V

Can I change the 220v plug out with a 120v plug and operate the toaster at 120v? I know it will draw 15 amps instead of the 9 amps on the name plate. We live is the USA and our circuits in the kitchen is 20 amp 120v.

You can change the plug out but I very much doubt that your toaster will even heat. The way toasters work is by a resistance wire that heats up because of the current going through it that causes the wire to heat up. Since the wire that is in your toaster is designed to heat up under 220V drawing 9 amps. SInce you are now supplying only 120V then since I=V/R then in the first instance 9=220/R or 9*R=220 =24.444 Ohms Since in the second instance your V=120 then your Current =4.9 Amps and this will not be enough wattage to heat up the wires.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

### My 4 slice duo lit toaster "toasts" the upper half of my toast more than the bottom half. Center elements glow red after about a minute while the end elements take about two minutes to glow. Thoughts?

It should not work that way take it back and get a new unit. I am assuming it is operating on the correct voltage. If it is a 220V unit on 120V it would work that way.

### Bought a used air compressor with no owners manual. Just read that you should never use an extra long extension cord. Could doing this cause the motor to struggle and the unit to shut down?

If it is a 120V compressor, they draw about 20 amps when running. It takes a clean 120v plug and a 20 amp circuit breaker and dedicated outlet to operate them. Make sure the plug copper contacts are clean and bright and the receptacle also. It also takes a very heavy extension cord to operate them on a extension (and is not recommended), use a longer pressure hose instead.

### Need a power transformer from 220v input to 120v output

Yes, you need a step down transformer. These are often rated in watts (the power rating is the same on both sides of a transformer) so it is easy enough to match this with the power consumption of the stereo. Apparently you will need about a 4kW transformer eg

You have most likely cooked the Wii itself, To check connect the correct power adapter to the correct system and in the correct power source ( 120v or 220v ) if it works all good if not you know you cooked it. If you are unable to test in this manner have it checked by a qualified technician.

### How can i change my 220V jet pump into a 120V jetpump?

Why do you want to?

You have to change the motor to a 120v model, same frame.

Service wiring has to have a hot, neutral and a ground. You should already have three wires so that is not a problem, just have to move one of the 220 hot wires to neutral. That will give you one hot, one neutral and one ground wire to make your 120V circuit.

If you only have 120V service and a 220V pump motor you can purchase a step up transformer that will take 120V in and give you 220V out. You must know the power in watts or KVA of the motor in order to purchase the correct step up transformer.

### Will my Logitech X-230 speakers work in a country with 220-240 V power outlets or would i need an adapter to use them there? If i connect them directly to the 240 V outlet, will they run properly or would...

Check the back of your sub to check your voltage range. You will see something like this: 110V-120V or 110V-220V. If you see the later, you are ready to go. If you see 110-120V only, you will need a power converter to power your speakers as well as any other 110-120V equipment. But no matter what, if it is 110-120V DO NOT PLUG DIRECT TO 220V!! It will blow your speakers. (I lived in Germany for 11 years.)

Hi I am an Indian too !

Of course you can use the 220v AC adapter, it will not harm your massager but may only underperform [slow speed, slow vibrations etc]

And be aware that the foreign products you receive, and have adapters rated at 120v are bound to get busted if you use them here in India, don't use them at first place.
Rather, buy an adapter rated for 220-240v for the same output voltage as that of 120v

### YST-SW215

Do you have the input voltage switch set to 120V 60hz. There is a switch that should change from 120v/60hz to 220v/50hz. In the US this should be on 120v/ 60hz
