Our rainbow e2 black type 12 vaccum was meant to be used on 110v and was plugged into a 220v, what part needs to be changed to convert the machine to work with 220v

nothing that I can guess at but changing the motor to a 220 . might be more cost effective to purchase a new vacuum cleaner .or use a 110 convertor for your outlets

Just bought kitchen aid prof 600 110v and i need a new transformer to 220v since my old one was busted using this appliance. What kind of transformer will i buy? Heavy duty ? Any spec? Thanks

You need one that can deliver not only the correct voltage but sufficient current to operate fully when under load. Check the current requirement on the sticker under the base, it will give operating voltage and watts. Purchase a transformer that matches the voltage and exceeds the watts by at least 30% so that the transformer is not operating at full capacity when under load. It will not matter if the transformer exceeds the watts by 100% or more but they do get bigger and heavier as the wattage goes up.

Step up convertor

VT 2300F Step Up Down Transformer with American Grounded Plug 2300 Watts

The wattage rating for the router is just under 2000 watts. You'll want a converter with a wattage rating more than the rating of the router.
VT3000 Step Up Down Voltage Transformer 3000 Watts
I would personally go for the 3000 watt converter.

Will my BES800xl espresso mechine (canadian version) work in Ukraine running on 220v? I also have a Juice & Blend BJB840xl and want to know the same thin. Would a high wattage bump up transformer wirk...

Hello, if in canada you have 110V in europe you will have 220V so, you need to find out if next the plug of your devices you have a switch that you can change between 110V to 220V. That will help otherwise you can burn the device.

Given 1hp motor how to compute the exact amount of amphere use in circuit breaker

You're not going to be able to do this with just a known Horse Power.

There are 3 elements to the equation, with any two, you can work out the third.

If you want to know how the amperage, you will need to know the voltage and wattage of the motor. I imagine that you already know the voltage (It's going to be 220V or 110 volt)

Watts divided by volts = Amps


A 220v 1000 watt motor (1000 divided by 220) will draw 4.55 amps
A 110v 800 watt motor (800 divided by 110) will draw 7.27 amps

Bear in mind that most washing machines have a couple of windings for wash and spin. As an average, the was winding will usually be about 500 watts to spin and about 250 watts to wash. ALSO, bear in mind that if you are using this data for a WASHING MACHINE, then there is a water heating element in there too and that draws about 2Kw (2000 watts)

Dont just take this as read, you DO need to check wattages, but, working on what I have just said, the max consumption on a 220V machine will look like this:

At Spin, with a 500 Watt consumption: (500/220) = 2.3 amps
While Washing with a 250 watt consumption: (250/220) = 1.14 amps

Consider that the WASH and HEAT may be running at the same time.
2Kw heating (2000/220) = 9.1 amps PLUS 1.14 amps for the motor - Total wattage 10.24 amps

Watts / Volts = Amps
Amps x Volts = Watts
Watts divided by amps = Volts

Can a Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blue-Ray player from the US be set to 220V? Does it have a voltage selector?

No it does not have a voltage selector.

These units are made specifically for different regions A B or C.

I suppose you could get a converter.. 120v 60 hz to 220 V 55 hz.. but I would want to make sure it would play the proper format for your region before going through the trouble.

Best of luck

What is the input voltage, and wattage required to run an electric Kenmore 6000 series dryer. I just moved to Dubai where input is 220V--hooked up my dryer but it doesn't work

The 220V should work... anything from 220-240 should be okay.
The current draw will be 20-25 amps. so a 30 amp breaker is needed...
The wattage will be somewhere between 5000-6000 watts...

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

What is the wattage onroomba 560

The power supply isn't a transformer, its a switching power supply. The power supply is different for different locations, but you should not plug a 110V only power supply into a 220v source or vice-versa. You should contact iRobot if you wish to obtain the correct power supply for another location or to determine if they have an autosensing model that can sense and adapt to either 110v or 220v. You can also use a step down transformer to convert from 220v to 110v. The charger should be using 20W or less, but it will be pulling the current in narrow surges from the peaks of the voltage wave (aka a high 3rd harmomic current) and you will need to use a 40W or larger transformer to avoid unexpectedly overheating the transformer core.

110V 6ohz - 220V 50hz

Kitchenaid mixers are not recommended on the use of a converter as they are not tested under such conditions. Understanding this, using a convertor on your mixer may automatically void the 1 year warranty regardless of age.

There are international Kitchenaid dealers available if you are requiring 110V. You may contacted Kitchenaid Customer Service for more information.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.
