Why does the plug does not fit the outlet for a GE air conditioner AEL14*?


Voltage is not 110v May be 220v thus the plug won't fit into a wall socket.

110V fan has been plugged in 220V power socket


You may be lucky enough that the capacitor exploded from the 220 volt charge. You will have to enquire at an appliance repair shop for exact advice. Basically I would junk it and get the correct unit for the voltage and cycles in you area.

Can i change the plug socket over from 110v to 240v supply on my HR2470T-1/1


It would not be OSHA approved if in the US in an industrial location.

While not recomended practice, it can be done in the US to run off of 4 wire 240. You are just connecting to one half of the 240 outlet.

If you are in the UK or elsewhere with 240/250 volt mains- do not do this, use a voltage reducing transformer instead..

In the US, the standard is 120 /240 Or put another way- a 240 volt circuit in the home in the US, has 2 120 volt branches that share a common return, the 240 is derived across the 2 "120 sources"- hence your 2 pole breakers on 240 volt branches. If the socket is 3 terminal- which was old code- ground and the return were common at the outlet, it is a matter of just making sure the 240 volt plug terminals the 120 volt drill gets attached to is the ground/return (the one with the nib on it to make it index correctly in the outlet- (should be the wide blade lead or white and one black in the drill goes to either"hot" side of the plug- either one will work, and only one. On a 4 wire outlet, which is new code- the return goes to the white wire of the drill. And the black goes to either one of the hot sides. If drill has conductive case and grounding wire- that should connect to the outlet ground.

Mark on plug which two blades are used, so if you take it somewhere else, you can check (which should be standard operating procedure) with a meter to make sure their outlet is wired correctly.

We have bose 9 speaker system from usa 110v it was my fathers we have brought it back to spain which is 240v can you help ie transformers


Probably every electrical supply store in Europe sells tranformers for American (110V) gear.

Google "240 - 100 transformer Europe"

What's a Bose 9? You mean 901? Before you try to use it get the manual from Bose.com and wrap your head around it's requirement for exclusive use of any amplifier.

Want to change my 110v plug on my dewalt radio to 240v


Your radio must be a import from the U.S.A. Your radio will not work on 240v YOU WILL BLOW IT UP!!! You need a step down transformer 240v to 110v to goto your radio, you will have to do a search on Ebay in Power tools. You sould notice the lead on your 110v radio is not like normal flex as its only single insulated for 110 volts.... Don't put a normal plug on or you may have to call the fire brigade!!

Need to convert my 110 volt 15amp to 240 volt


You can buy a transformer which allows all 110v power tools to work from a 240v supply. You will also need to change the plug on the compressor to a yellow 110v type. You can buy transformers for around £25 and around £3 for the plug
