How do I wire 110v from a 220v box?

1 Answer

You have two wires in the box that will read 220 plus
volts to the ground wire,the box if grounded & to the
white neutral

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
those circuits.

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

SOURCE: how do i wire two 110v breakers to make a 220v

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 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..

SOURCE: 110v or 220v ?

That would be a 220v dryer...virtually all electric dryers are 220v.

SOURCE: i would like to put a 220v 20amp heater in my garage i have a fuse box in the garage as it is not attached to house so i need to know how to wire the plug in to my fuse box

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.

Have a 220v 3 wire circuit: red, black & green. can I use the green ground as a neutral for a 110v circuit?

I wouldnt do this just because you might have some other things being grounded inline.

Converting 220v to 110v

No, I'm sorry, but this is not possible. But remember that 220 vac is just two legs of 120vac cycled 60 degrees apart. So 220 may be available there. Talk to the local electricians--you may only need a new plug and recepticle installed, or it may take extra wiring, depending on the buildings wiring and local codes.

How do you connect a photo cell to a 220v HID fixture?

You can connect photo eye white wire to ground wire, and it will work, since each hot wire in 240V circuit carries 110V to ground.
But this installation is not code.
It is not necessarily dangerous if you are only person working on electric circuits, and you remember what you did, and don't work inside main box without turning off power.

See illustrations.

Running a White neutral wire from nearby outlet is best solution.

Or buy 240Volt photo eye.

Logitech z515 power US is 110V - israel is 220V - is US to EU plug adapter sufficient to use in Israel ?

No you cannot as 220v will damage the 110v the Logitech. You need a stepdown transformer to reduce the voltage from 220v to 110v. and then you can safely plug the Logitech into this stepdown transformer.

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.)

My little giant water pump model 4mdsc has three

Sounds like you may have a 220V pump. So you need to confirm that this is a 110V pump and not a 220V pump. There should be a label or more info on line with any other info on the label. If you can confirm that this is a 110V pump, then put a standard plug on the cord - the green is ground and the other two can be wired to either blade of the plug. If you do have a 220V pump and you connect it to 110V anyway, the pump will perform poorly and will probably overheat and fail.

What is the specific power transformer (internal) i need to switch my logitech 230 speakers from 220v to 110v?

If the speakers are wanting 220V, will they work, at a diminished level, if you only supply 110V ?

Otherwise, you need a "step-up" transformer, which takes 110V input, and produces 220V as output.

Do the speakers have a "110V/220V" switch on them????
