Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Iv had an idea for along time. About power comeing into our home,s. Id like to no if am right when useing 220 only there is no wast right. But when useing 110 volt there is some wast. Or when 110 v in oder to complet the circuit the return comeing frm lets say. 110 light blub go,s back to breaker box and is paired wht ground. Right? And wth 220 v that doesnt happen no wast right? Because 220v is 180 out of faze. Sorry about spelling. So do we wast power because of. 110V . And wouldnt we save power if we only used 220?

What is your problem? Not drying? Not heating? Not running?

Why not just get a meter pole with a 220 outlet installed near your parking space?

SOURCE: Hello, I've bought a Whirlpool dryer (model # :

Use a 110V to 110/220VAC transformer solely for the dryer. The transformer must have both 110 VAC and 220VAC output but you must be electrically knowledgeable to wire a 14-30R receptacle correctly and safely for the dryer. Perform the modification only if you are authorized to do so; otherwise, service of a licensed or authorized electrician is highly recommended. Refer to the wiring diagram of the recommended transformer.


Connect the terminals of the 4-wire receptacle (14-30R) to the transformer accordingly based on the diagram above. The only problem is how to determine the "neutral" terminal from the transformer output terminals.

The "neutral" terminal of the transformer can be found from the 110VAC output terminals without disassembling the transformer . Using a voltmeter, measure the voltage between each of the 110VAC output terminals and each of the 220VAC output terminals. The 110VAC output terminal in which voltage readings to each of the 220VAC output terminals are both 110VAC is the "neutral". The other 110VAC output terminal reads zero and 110VAC and this is NOT the "neutral".

Make sure the transformer power rating is appropriate for the dryer rating.

SOURCE: how to get 220 from breaker box

You are measuring in the wrong place! If you have a double breaker in the circuit breaker box, measure the voltage at the dryer outlet. You should have 110, 110, 220 at the different terminals.
If that isn't the case, then replace the circuit breaker (assuming that you have the right input voltage into the house)

"I was welding with a

Your generator is a welder?? Yikes, the 220 volts coming out of the genny is not the same as the 220 volts running a welder, it is, but it isn't, the 220 volts used to run the welder are transformed into DC, in the 50 -150 amp range, the 220 volts coming out of your genny is 220 volts, AC, at 30-40-50 amps. Now exactly how were you welding with 220 volts AC? Remove anything plugged into the genny, check the oil, check the gas, make sure it is fresh, check the breakers, check the fuses, get it running, now don't try to weld with it again. Unless you have a big welder to plug into it and I wouldn't even do that because of the generator spikes. I might be wrong, but I have never seen a genny with a welder on it for home use.

Iv got a 2005 yz 250 stock whats the best way to hot it up

hot it up? you mean make it go faster ? wow it's a realy quick bike right out of the box if the bike seems to be lacking power easy check is the air filter ...pristeen like so clean you would eat off it? 2005 ...when was the last time the top end was done ? about every 30 hrs for a two stroke half of that if you are racing it by racing I mean getting on a motocross track and riding with other guys about your skill level till you have arm pump that makes you wish you had stayed home. if the above conditions have been met then a pipe is probably your most logical choice don't wast time and money on the engine making it high compression and needing race fuel 100++ octane is a total waste for all but the elite riders and it makes the bike unreliable and fussy "like a hot blonde pretty to look at but high maintence" Good Luck & Ride safe

L200 warrior turbo fault,drives ok for miles then suddenly no power engine light on, turn off then on all ok again

iv only st come on here and seen this post i know exactly what this problem is. it's the waste gate in the turbo gets full of carbon and then over boosts itself and put on the engine management light and when you turn the key on and off it resets it. so what you have to do id take the turbo off and clean out the waste gate which is on the exhaust side and that will get rid of all your problems and the better you clean it out the longer it will last.
