Re: 110v working 220v
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.

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.
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)
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
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.
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
no heat usually means your only getting110 volts into your dryer.....you need the full 220volts to run heaters....with voltage meter you checkwires on the plug OUTLET...or inside back cover REDwire to WHITEwire =110v.........BLACKwire to WHITEwire =110v.....REDwire to BLACKwire =220v. you probably have aBAD 220V. 30 amp circut breaker..or if still using FUSES one is burnt out (In house electric panel) or burnt off RED or BLACKwire in back of dryer.....
