You need about 15000 watts or 15kva at 120 vac to run this heater. You get about 3.4 btu's per watt on resistant heat.

### I have steamvac 120 V 60 HZ 7.9 A im going to use in my country Argentina 220 V 50 HZ input i need a tranfo 220V 110 V and who many watts?????

220 volts at 7.39 amps = 1738 watts
120 volts at 7.9amps = 948 watts so any unit capable of 1000 watts at the 110 volts will do the trick

### I live in China and brought a Keurig back with me from America. I went to plug it in a standard converter. The machine turned on for a few seconds and then shut off. I have tried turning it on again. It...

My guess is that the heater in it draws too much power for a converter. US is 110 volts, is China 220 volts? That is a step up transformer and they are not reliable.

yes 220 volts

Okay, a Keurig draws 1500 watts of power.

HOW MUCH POWER DOES KEURIG BREWER USE

I wonder if you bought a step DOWN transformer, 220 to 110? That would light up for a second until the heater element kicked in.

Does you look like this
Goldsource STU 2000 Step Up Down Voltage Transformer Converter AC 110 220...
or this
ELC 2000 2000 Watt Voltage Converter Transformer Step Up Down 110V 220V...

The other consideration is that the Chinese are masters of copying, so they must make a Keurig clone.

The downside is that the Chinese make rubbish electronics like your transformer.

### I bought my kitchen aid at the US it's 110v. I plugged it at 220v. Now it still works but not on bread mix

A device which is designed for 110 volts MUST NEVER be used into a 220 volt outlet. This can damage the unit and make the motor winding burnt.
You need to buy a STEP DOWN TRANSFORMER with a good rating (220volt to 110 volt) so that the unit works perfectly without damaging the motor.

### I have a electric dryer Model WED5810SW0 THAT I WAS TOLD I COULD CONVERT TO 120V from 240v is this true and if so how do i do this?

If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU. Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole 15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on #14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be disconnected simultaneously.

Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to 110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110 volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000 watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.

### I am trying to figure out if I can plug my new router into this 220Volt plug or do I have to plug it up to the transformer I was given since I live in south korea

Hi,

Please see on the adapter of the router if the range of voltage is from 110 to 220. If it is then it is called auto-volt. The adapter can adapt whether 220 or 110. You can directly connect it to any socket.

If it is not auto-volt then you must use a step down transformer to use it.

Thanks.

regards,

### Reddy heater 40000 btu heater hums when you plug it in then stop

Check the air pump. If you are lucky the rotor is busted. If not, see if the fan spins freely with no binding. If so, the starter relay is bad, if equipped. Some heaters have external relays, others have internal relays and are not serviceable. Could also be a bad bearing. Could also be - someone sat on the heater or dropped something on it, or it fell out of the truck and the sheet metal is squashed and is against the fan blade.
