Okay here goes, voltage does not matter as long as the breaker has the correct current draw (amps) for your load. Also 220 vac is normally provided by running two different phase hot lines into a double breaker. The difference in phase is require to make the item work properly. If you run two lines of the same phase into a double breaker then you still wind up with 115 vac. You might want to have an electrician do this if you do not know what you are doing. Not doing this properly can cause fire and/or lose of life and property.

From the panel box to my electric furnaces breakers do i run two 110v wires one to each or do I run a 220v to each breaker that is inside the furance

More information is needed. What does the manual say you need? With out the necessary details needed to help I would assume it is 220V. Run a 4 conductor cable. It would have two phases (115 to neutral each) a neutral wire, and a earth wire which is connected to the cabinet. If this is confusing you best get an electrician to do it for you. If you mess up you could cause your facility to go up in smoke.

..all the lights go on but it does not work when I hit the start button. It only beeps. Any solutions? Model WED5500XWO

Flip breaker for about 5 minutes. If it still won't work check the outlet and make sure there is 220v. Sometimes if one leg of the power goes out the electronics will run (they are 110v) but the motor and heat don't (they are 220v)

How do I wire 110v from a 220v box?

You have two wires in the box that will read 220 plus
volts to the ground wire,the box if grounded & to the
white neutral

So pick one of those wires,(black or red ) for your short
recepticle slot & gold screw & the white neutral goes to
the silver screw & longer slot

Put a wire nut on the other 220/240 wire, if it isn't going to be used

Have to ID the breakers for the wires first & know what is on
those circuits.

Will need to change the breaker out if your running a dedicated
120 volt circuit & then you will have an open space you will need
a plastic cover for, when you remove the 2 pole breaker

I have a pro cut 25 i would like to change it from 110v to 220v

The pro cut 25 will run on ether 110v or 220v without changing anything. I made a 220v to 110v adapter. It works well and if I want to run it on 110v it will still plug right in.

Plugged 110v dishwasher into 220v

When you have a 220v outlet there are two wires that both supply 110volts, thus the 220volt rating. 110volts uses 1 wire that supply's 110 volts and the other wire is a "neutral" what is a non current carrying conductor. In other words there is no 110 volts on the second wire. Most of the time if you supply a 110 volt appliance with 220 volts you most definately fry something if not everything. Probably the main thing that blew was the control panel be it a computer board, dial switch etc. Sorry for the bad news but it might be cheaper to replace the unit than having it looked at and repaired

Pool pump does not start

Well, this could be caused by several different problems. The first step would be to make sure the breakers are not in a half-trip condition in the breaker panel. You should turn the breakers off and snap them back on. If the breakers are OK, you need to check and see if you have the proper voltage coming into and out of the time clock. Some pumps run on 110v and some on 220v. The proper voltage can usually be determined by the type breakers. Single Pole is 110v, Double Pole would be 220v. You would need a meter to test the voltage at the time clock. If you have the proper voltage, you next need to make sure the shaft is spinning freely by trying to turn the impeller with your finger. If this is free, you may have a blown start capacitor on the motor itself. Hope this helps.

I have a maytag performa electric dryer with no heat, checked fuses, replaced heat element and thermostat, any ideas

Have you checked to make certain you have the proper voltage where the dryer is plugged in? 220v? A dryer will run on 110v but requires 220v to heat. Could be a problem with the breaker in the breaker box. If you are not familiar with electricity, I suggest you find someone knowledgeable ie professonial

Stove top or oven does not work however, clock

check your 220v outlet, you could have 110v and not the needed 220v to operate the elements. If you only have 110v at the outlet the one side of the double breaker is bad
