does it allow you to switch from 110v to 220v ? if it does then you got to switch it according to the power supply from the plug point that you are going to plug it into. Do NOT switch it to 110v and plug it into a 220v plug point .
if it is only 110v and not switchable then you got to use the only 110v

Wire 110 to 220

If you have a 110 volt appliance, all switches , wiring and components are made especially to handle that voltage. If you feed 220 to 240 volts into it, most certainly the machine will be unsafe and likely fail in a very short time. Purchase a step down transformer to reduce your supply voltage to 110. Most good electrical parts stores should be able to supply this.

How to hook up 110 from 220

basically 220 is two (2) 110 legs and a common/ground leg.
in theory you take one 110 leg and a common/ground and you have 110.
however, electricity is a strange bird - I would highly suggest you consult with an electrician on what you are attempting to do - and in what manner.
I would not feel good without an electrician or some other knowledgeable person advising you on this 'in person.'

if you want a 110 dryer your gonna have to go with gas, or buy a dryer manufactured for 110 heat, but Ive been doing this for alot of years and I have oonly seen like 3 and I dont remember the manufacture
sorry i could help more
but you should be answered, it was a good question

Whirlpool duet electric wil not heat

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

The 220-110 volt saga

GE profile stove, Gas-electric

All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)

Well, as a rule for electronics:
The United States and Canada use 110-volt electricity.
Most countries outside North America use 220-volt electricity.
Unless your appliance is dual voltage, you need to use a "converter" or a "transformer" to change the 220-volt electricity into 110-volt electricity in order to use a 110-volt appliance.
If your appliance is dual voltage, you can switch it to work on 220-volts, without a transformer or converter.


Desktop units have a selector switch for 110 / 220 volts., which is done away with in the case of laptop one's which sense the input voltage and regulate accordingly.

I think your main concern is just that you have an adapter for the plug to go into the wall outlet.

Hope that helps :)
