I believe an Electrician can change it in your breaker box, but if your appliance is a 230v, you need to have that amount for that appliance, in that outlet. Best to you!

Lights come on but no heat from eyes or oven?


Hello, I really need the make/model number to help you accurately but with the info you've described, I can tell you what to check first. 1st, some oven operating know-how--they operate on 240v AC. That means there are *2 hot wires, each with 120v*, a "neutral" wire, and a ground wire. To power up the control panel, the makers usually just run a wire up from one of the incoming AC supply wires, known as L1 and L2. Importance: it is possible to have the control panel work perfectly, lights and all, and have the problem you're describing--quite possibly THE OTHER 120v supply wire has become disconnected, either at the back of the oven where the terminal block is located, or at the 240v outlet on the wall. Also, the heavy cord with the plug on the end might have corroded/broken/burned up, so check it, too. Also, check that 240v is *getting* to the 240v outlet--this will tell you if the problem is at the panel box or at the oven-end of things. An old outlet might hold one blade of the plug tightly and the other will be too loose to make a good connection. BE CAREFUL WHEN CHECKING ELECTRICALLY HOT CONNECTIONS--240V WILL KILL YOU, DEAD. Make your movements deliberate, be focused, take your time. If you are hesitant about any of this, call for service! I hope I helped you!

How can I fix a possible short in Bright Starts Ingenuity Cradle and Swing?


Sounds like a short n wiring. Was it plugged into wall outlet or running on batteries? Did u smell any burning? Or like warm, hot plastic? If it's ran on batteries or if it is a .wall plug, but there was no smell. U might b able to open it up and locate a lose, disconnected or old and or fauly wire. Which u could reconnect if still good. If faulty, then splice, replace, reconnect.That would b, if lucky. If your not and or it was a short, then it's likely to have burned up the motor, which is more likely if it was a wall plug.

How to change Emglo air compressor from 220v to 110v. Compressor is running at half speed when plugged into standard wall outlet. I bought the compressor new in the early "90's" and since then...


Hi Pete,
On the side of the motor on the label should be a wiring diagram. The diagram will tell you how to wire fro high 220v and low 110v ...
If the nameplate is single voltage only then the motor cannot be rewired for the lower voltage...
Also check the motor RPM nameplate as compared to the others...you may have a 1725 motor and the newer ones a 3450 motor...that would give them double the RPM's if the gearing or pulley sizes are the same...so.. if you have the right voltage and the RPM's of the motor are the lower, then you possibly could change the pulley sizes to speed up the compressor...

Lots to check and think about...

I have a kalorik heart shaped waffle maker and on the first use, after the first waffle, the waffle iron stopped working. i was wondering if there was something i could do to reset it or if i should just...


Check the outlet that it was plugged into. If you used it in a kitchen it may have been plugged into a GFI outlet (Ground Fault Interrupter). If the safety device in the outlet failed, or there was more than one heating type appliance used on the outlet or a standard wall outlet. Then you may have simply triggered the circuit breaker that addresses this device. For example, If you had the coffee maker on, or the toaster, or the microwave oven on. Using an additional appliance would pop the breaker.
Here are the possible solutions. TRY your waffle maker in another outlet. If it was plugged into a GFI wall outlet, then find the "reset button" on the outlet and push it. If it clicks, it means that it had tripped. NOW HERE IS AN IMPORTANT POINT TO FOLLOW. If you reset the GFI and plug in the Waffle Maker, then turn it on and the outlet pops off. there is a wiring defect in the waffle Iron.
If you don't have a GFI and you plug the waffle iron into a standard outlet and turn it on and it trips the breaker, then same thing. A defect in the Waffle Iron. Now if you plug the waffle iron into a good circuit and it works again. Then it was a matter of the outlet being overloaded by too many small appliances.
Very common problem. Not serious. Just reset the breaker. Or if it's a fuse, replace it.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Grill problems


I would advise not to use the grill or the plug it plugs into before determining what the problem is. It could be the grill cord, or the wall plug.

If you have been in the habit of pulling the cord plug out of the wall by tugging on the cord, then chances are the problem is broken conductors inside of the wire insulation. One way to test this is to attempt plugging the unit into a totally different wall outlet. If the cord and outlet heat up again, chances are the cord needs to be replaced (if possible). If the both do not heat up, then the outlet wiring connections inside of the wall need to be checked.

Bad wiring connections either in the wall, or in the cord, will generate heat, when will then conduct to the other connector. So it is difficult to use heat as the indicator of which connector is bad.

Dryer wallplug heats up


you may have aluminum wiring going from your fuse box to the wall plug (older house) .. if this is the case then you have to have a special wall plug that is approved for aluminum .. if you use a standard wall plug then you will get what you are seeing (it gets hot after a few years) .. the connections work loose and start to get hot .. if you have copper wire then you might also have either loose connections or the springs that make contact to the plug have lost tension .. make sure you turn off the circuit breaker before doing anything inside the wall plug box .. make sure water hasnt damaged things inside the box .. once the box has gotten hot the integrity of the spring contacts cant be trusted .. (they lose their spring force when they get hot) .. so no matter what kind of wiring you have you should replace the wall outlet .. if you have aluminum wire (white looking) then get an outlet that is aluminum certified .. if you have copper wire (orange color) then replace the outlet with one that has a rating of 20 amps .. that should fix your problem.

I am trying to connect the ethernet cable to a philips RJ45 wall


There are two standards for ethernet wiring. Most cables use the B standard, but many manufacturers of central wiring boxes (OnQ, LeGrand, SmartHome) have central units wired to the A standard. Wall outlets have to be wired to the same standard as the central unit, assuming there is one. You have to determine whether the other end of whatever you are wiring is wired to the A or B standard. If you are wiring both ends yourself, use the B standard. The wiring diagrams are here:

Installing a Leviton 5225 switch with outlet.


A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.

You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.

If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.

Here is a link that may help you.

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II


The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...
