LG WM0532HW Will not power up. I checked the electrical supply and I have 120 volts to the switch in the LG contorl panel, but when the switch is activated, there is no response. Is the switch bad? Can it be replaced or do I have to replace the whole card?

Can I change a 120 volt unit to 240 volts BowFlex series 7 treadmill


Check around power entry if you have a selector switch.
If so, slide it to 240 or 220V~.
Otherwise you would need an external step-up 120AC-240AC transformer, rated capacity high enough to handle the current of treadmill.

I wish to take the Ellure Plus machine to India where the power supply is 240 volt. What shall I do? What is the power requirement in Watts for this machine. Your feedback is highly appreciated.


You will need to check with the instruction manual of your machine what the specifications are.

Today the 120 volt mains, I am told, is almost a thing of the past and 220 volt is much more common. The UK mains electricity used to be 250 volts but it has been lowered to 240 and eventually it will be lowered to 230 volts to bring us closer to the European specification.

Because most electrical equipment is imported and we are a minority market, electrical manafacturers didn't want to produce specail goods just for us and so for 20 years or so most of our electrical goods are suitable for use in a range of mains voltages from 220 to 240. Sometimes they are marked as such and sometimes marked as 230 volts but we are told 240 won't damage them and they will still work efficiently at 220. It is only very old electrical equipment made for 250 volts that seems slightly less efficient.

Some equipment is made for universal use and will accept 120 volt mains as well as the 220 to 240 range. In this case there is usually a provision to select a different voltage by means of a switch or by changing some simple internal wiring connections. Details of how to do this is invariably printed in the manual.
Equipment produced for 110/120 volts only would become dangerous and be soon destroyed if plugged directly into a 240 volt mains but a transformer can easily be obtained to allow 120 volt equipment to be used on 220/240 volt mains. A great many professional tools are still produced to use 120 volt electricity for reasons of safety and so auto-transformers of all sizes are commonly available and not too expensive.

I have a fairly limited experience of sewing machines but I think a domestic machine has only a very small appetite for power and a supply suitable for a reading lamp will be more than adequate. The exact wattage of your machine will be found in the instruction manual.

How do I know if my Hotpoint oven 920 years old0 is on a 220 0r 120 line? The serial plate says 120/220.


An oven uses both 120 & 220 -- actually it would be 120 volts and 240 volts or nominally, 110 volt and 220 volt.

The 120 is used for the lights. The 240 is used for the heating elements.

A 240 volt breaker (nominally 220 volt) -- supplies both 120 and 240 volts depending on how the supply is connected to the appliance.

There will be a 240 volt (nominally 220 volt) breaker in the main panel for the oven. This is two 120 volt breakers side-by-side with their toggle switches connected together with a strap across the top of the toggles.

We have a kenmore electric dryer runs with no heat. repair manual said to check fuses. House panel has circuit breakers none tripped manual says there are two house fuses in the dryer circuit. If one of...


Older fuse panels would have two fuses, one provides power from each 120 volt leg in the panel, therefore providing 240 volts for the heater coil. The motor in the dryer only requires 120 volts, so it may possibly still run if it is on the side with a good fuse. In newer panels that have circuit breakers, you may only have a single handle, but the breaker is a 240 volt breaker (which controls both 120 volt feeds at the same time). You will likely notice that this and all other breakers that are 240 volts are twice the width of a single 120 volt breaker. There is no "second fuse" for you to check, as the circuit breaker takes the place of both fuses in an older style panel.

If you are able to confirm that you have good power at the power connection at the back of the dryer (120 volts between black and white, 120 volts between red and white, 240 volts between red and black wires), then that typically only leaves the heater coil itself or the timer to check. Check continuity on the heater coil first, and visually inspect it for a broken or shorted coil. It is usually the culprit.

If the coil checks ok, carefully check the voltage at the terminals that feed power to the coil. Depending on the model, there may also be a thermal fuse or thermostat that is inline with the power feed to the coil itself. Check this to make sure that it has continuity as well.

I hope this helps you with your repair troubleshooting. Good luck!

Dryer is not heating up


Hi there
I think that you are going to need a new heating coil, sorry . I would contact your local appliance dealer to see how much a new one would cost.

GE 2200 Dishwasher-no power at all, circuit breakers are fine, switch works


with your volt/ohm meter check for power going to the dishwasher. the power supply is located under the kick panel. the power wire may be shorted out due to poor installation. if you are not comfortable testing power, I would advise calling a professional. If no power is found at the power box (this has a power cord or electrical wire going to it) the problem lies within your house electric. if 120 volts is present, check for power @ the door switch. aftrer that you just need to follow the power wire and see where it stops
If this is a newly built house and new to you the builder may have put a light switch above your counter ,the one you didn't think went to anything, check for that! good luck with it!

MY LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer will not power on


Check the junction connection behind the dryer where the power cord and terminal block to make sure that the screws are tight.  Then use a volt meter to check for voltage.  The 2 outside wires should be hot leads and the center is neutral.  Check hot to hot and you should get 240 volts.  Check hot to neutral and you should get 120 volts.  If you get those voltage readings, then you have a control board malfunction and needs to be replaced.  There is no reset switch within the dryer for the control board.
