Question about Electrical Supplies

Open Question

I have a customer with two Supremetal 345-93-E or HF-3E-120 steam tables. I want to change the 500 watt elements to 750 watt 208 elements. Can you help me with the parts to do this?

Immediately turn off power to heater. One of two things has happened. Either: A. The electrical contacts in one of the thermostats has welded together, necessitating replacement of the thermostat(s). (in this case I would recommend replacing both upper and lower thermos) or B. The lower element has burnt through, and because there is 120 volts to the lower element at all times (it normally only heats when the thermos complete the circuit to give it a path to the other "hot", putting a full 240 volts on it) a section of the element will continue to heat up to the point where the break allows the current to complete it's path to neutral ground via the water in the tank. It can continue to heat until the high limit safety thermo trips out. (the red reset button on the upper thermostat)
If either condition exists, the high limit safety thermo should trip out power to the heater before boiling water, and thus steam, is produced. Even if the safety thermo should fail to cut power, the pressure / temperature relief valve should open, releasing excessive pressure. If that should also fail to open, due to corrosion or such, the water heater will create steam and can actually result in explosion, and possible injury or death!
Several years ago I came across one that was boiling and when I turned on a hot water faucet to relieve the pressure it filled the entire basement with steam. (I still shutter to think if I didn't catch that fast enough I or someone else could have been killed)

The most likely cause of your extra hot water is actually the lower element. After you turn off power to the heater, turn off the water supply to the heater, open a hot water faucet to allow air to enter the tank and drain the tank. Remove the lower element. A bad element is usually visually apparent. If it looks good, you would have to test it with an ohm meter. (should be about 20 ohms if it is good) Install new element, turn on water and fill until water flows steadily from the hot water faucet you left open. Now you can turn the faucet off and turn power back on to heater.

SOURCE: solenoids workin, steam lines fine, but no steam

take hose off from iron end,press iron button ,breifly! keep tight hold of hose [best to put towel around hose while holding]see if steam comes out.if not hose could be blocked, then take hose from solenoid end and press button .if no steam comes out the solenoid is either faulty or the valve hole inside is blocked,turn off power and take nut off top of solenoid ,check spring and plunger for condition.the small hole may be blocked in the solenoid housing,try a needle in the hole to clear any blockage.

IM IN LONDON. I PURCHASED AROMA RICE COOKER THROUGH AMAZON.120V RICE COOKER. How to use it here in London?


Look on the information label to see how many amps it draws at 120 volts. Multiply the amps by 120 to get watts. Next you'll need to get a transformer that will handle the watts when changing 240 volts to 120 volts

I am purchasing a generator to rum Ridgid 4510 table saw off grid. What is the start-up wattage?


3000 watts should work ok. Take the motor amps (12) times the voltage (120) to get watts - then double for the start current.

Where can i buy a 230 volt 120 watt wire in touch dimmer for a table lamp


Roger -

Are you sure you need a 230 volt dimmer in your table lamp? If this is being used in the US or Canada, it is more likely to be a 120 volt lamp. I think you will have trouble finding a 230 volt dimmer.

Can you use a plug in timer to switch your storage heater on during the cheap rate electricity


Generally NO.
But...it Depends on amp rating of timer, wattage of water heater, and line voltage.
Look at label on side of heater for watts.
Electric water heater will work on any voltage.

1) Start with 120 Volt outlet::
Volts x amps = watts
Watts divided by volts = amps
Let's say outlet is 120Volts. Lets say water heater is rated 4500 watts.
4500 divided by 120 = 37 amps
There is NO plug-in timer rated for 37 amps.

Let's say water heater is rated 900 watts.
900 divided by 120 volts = 7.5 amps

Yes. The Intermatic HB113 timer will handle up to 8 amps.

2) 240 Volt outlet
Same calculations as above.

1900 watt element divided by 240 volts = 8 amp.
Yes, the Intermatic HB112 timer will safely handle that element.

3) Here are some water heater timers:

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. OR USED A Quick 220 Voltage Converting Power Supply
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.

Will the 500 watt charge camera batteries


it depends on what type of batteries you are talking about. If they are batteries that are charged in a AA type that uses 120 volts then it will work.

I brought the coffee maker to Brazil and here is 220 VAC isntead of 120VAC . Do you think it will work with that thing, sorry dont know the name to change the energy???


Its called a converter? Drops the 220 to 120 maybe? As long as the end result is operation on 120VAC you will be ok, otherwise you will be shopping for a new coffee pot.
