SOURCE: Accidentally plugged into 220 volt outlet

The wiring diagram isn't showing a fuse, but there could be one on one of the circuit boards. Maybe the converter is bad. You will just have to take it apart and look it over. Maybe this pic. will help:

How do I convert a kirby ultimate G from 110V to 220V


You can't. The Kirby draws too many amps for a step down transformer.

How do I use a turbo steamer 220 portable?


if your talking about a 220 volt you will have to have a 220 plug in, otherwise most are 110 volt, fill with distilled water, apply appropriate pad, turn on machine and wait for the indicator lite to tell you its ready and go. i recomend a medium pace to let the steam do its work.

It came with a american plug and when we put a converter to australian plug on it it only shows 220w instead of 240 which is what we have in australia. Don't want to plug it in and it blow up on me.


I think you mean 220 volts, versus 220 watts. The difference between 220 & 240 volt equipment is usually just a matter of nomenclature -- no significant difference in terms of operating the equipment.

The vacuum is 110 / 120 volt since it has an "American" plug on it. If the plug is swapped for an "Australian" plug (or adapted) and plugged into the wall, the vacuum will be connected to 220 volts -- this would destroy the motor.

You would need a transformer to step down the Australian voltage to 110 / 120 volts. If you plug it in without a transformer, it will surely burn up the motor.

More info, let me know.

I want to put machine in my house but need 110 motor instead of 220. nothing wrong with motor or control box


I'm assuming that you brought a vacuum cleaner from a country that uses 220V to a country that uses 110V.

You either have to change the motor to a 110V motor, or find a way of plugging the cleaner into a 220V supply.

You could contact the manufacturer and ask them if they have a 110V replacement motor for your model. (Safety warning... it will take double the electrical current, which will cause four times the heating in the cable; this could be dangerous.)

A better solution would be to have an electrician fit a 220V outlet in your house. The pin arrangement will be different to prevent 110V deviced being plugged in to it. You'll have to cut the existing plug and replace it with the correct one for that voltage for your country. (I have used a British 'Dyson' in this way, plugged in to a tumble-dryer outlet; I use a GFI for extra safety.)

How to use 220 volts sewing machine to 120 volt plug, were can find a transformer?


If the sewing machine came from a forigen country, Check radioshack. They might have an adaptor there. but be ready to spend some $. but if it is an industrial sewing machine, have an electrician put in a 220 volt outlet. Don't cheat. Your home will be put at risk from fire.

sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.
I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz.
usually when a vac is brought to europe you must change motor.
