Have a 220v plug need to re-wire to a 110v plug
You have two wires in the box that will read 220 plus
volts to the ground wire,the box if grounded & to the
So pick one of those wires,(black or red ) for your short
recepticle slot & gold screw & the white neutral goes to
the silver screw & longer slot
Put a wire nut on the other 220/240 wire, if it isn't going to be used
Have to ID the breakers for the wires first & know what is on
Will need to change the breaker out if your running a dedicated
120 volt circuit & then you will have an open space you will need
a plastic cover for, when you remove the 2 pole breaker

very simple!! in all homes there is a breaker box it used to be called a fuse box like in cars of today...there are 2 banks of breakers going from top to bottom both sides. each side represents 110 volts ac. to run a line for a 220 dryer you use # 10 romex wire. the lower the number the thicker the wire. # 10 will work just fine. you need to take the box cover off and you will see a menagerie of wires these mean nothing to you. in the #10 romex you will find 3 wires. 1white 1black and 1 with no coating or bare wire this 1 will be earth ground.. if you look inside the box you wll see where it goes.. the black and white 1 goes 1 on each side. black to the left white to the right.make sure you turn off the main breaker before you put tour fingers inside the box or you will become electrocuted. and still be carefull. there could be residual voltage. use rubber gloves...do your connections and put the box front back on.. now that thatis done you are going to need a pigtail female socket and a pigtail mail plug.. both with 3 pin. go to your local hardware store or home depot and tell them that you need both male and female connectors..take them home hook them up and you are good to go.... now was that complicated? have a good 1 my freind..

Mains wiring should be carried out by an qualified electrician. If you do not have mains electrical knowledge or qualifications and you make a mistake it will kill you.
