You just need to get a voltage converter that is rated for at least 25% more watts than the coffee maker heater. The Corningware P-6 Coffee Maker I have is rated for 400 watts at 120 volts and yours should be rated the same since it was originally sold in the US market (they use the same heater element module). Therefore, you should use a voltage converter rated at 500 watts or more.

Its called a converter? Drops the 220 to 120 maybe? As long as the end result is operation on 120VAC you will be ok, otherwise you will be shopping for a new coffee pot.

    Wattage is not the issue here the voltage is. The 120volt electronics will not be happy receiving 220volts. your adapter has to drop 100 volts so the appliance does not fry. If you just have a plug adapter it will not work. Eric

I know Dyson DC 35 uses a battery that converts ac charging source to low v DC power. Am asking about charging ac source of 220 v.

If your unit is set up for 120v (std American), I wouldn't suggest try 220. There are adapters, available that step down 220 to 120. Many of the people in the military who are stationed overseas (especially Europe) buy these devices for there US equipment. Try to "Google" 220 vac-120vac adapters. I'm sure there are places you can order them from.

Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQ1 Not heating

If your drive motor is turning, but your timer and heating circuits are not working, it sounds like you could be missing one leg of your 220 service. The dryer timer and heating circuits utilize the full 220 from the receptacle, while the drive motor only uses 120 VAC. Unplug your dryer and check the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC across the two hot leads (these are the two large slots). The wires are BLACK - L1 & RED - L2. If you only read 120, check each slot to the NEUTRAL slot (white wire) to determine which one is missing. Chances are, you may have a break in the L2 (red wire) line. Here's the wiring scheme depending in which type of power cord you may have:

3-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – Usually grounded to the equipment frame via a jumper wire or metal strap.

4-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – DO NOT ground to equipment frame.
GREEN (GROUND) – Attach to equipment frame.

Please doublecheck and let me know. If your source voltage is correct, perform continuity checks from the end of the power cord to the terminal block in the back of the dryer. Inspect for any burned or broken wires. If you are not able to isolate a problem at this point, please post back and let me know. I can assist you further. I hope this helps.
