Hey presto


Do not attempt to repair, adjust, or replace parts in the heater. The Presto Factory Service Department should check and repair broken heaters.

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:

Need replacement quartz tube <17" for my Presto


If Presto longer manufacturers or stocks parts for your heater, there may be a good reason for it. Other than they now have a better heater. My best advice is to scarp the heater and purchase a new one, Your model may have had a safety issue.

I have a trailer house that has a 100 amp breaker box in it. I has gas for heat, water heater and stove. I am changing them to electric. Will I need to change the panel put to a 200 amp.


Its probably not a bad idea. Thats alot for a 100A panel to handle, a range needs a 50A, a water heater needs 30A, and the heat will need a 50A or a 60A breaker... Plus whatever else is in the house will be a bit more than the 100A service can handle. But if you don't have the money it will do for a while because for the most part they won't all be pulling at the same time. Word to the wise get at least a 30 space panel when you upgrade, I always install a 40 space panel because for the cost difference its well worth it for future needs because you'll fill it up quicker than you think and you'll have space for anything else you may want to add later on. Hope I helped

Wattage for Kirby Sentria G10D


The conversion of Amps to Watts is governed by the equation
Watts = Amps x Volts

For example 1 amp @ 110 volts = 110 watts
your case 7 amp @ 120 volts = 840 watts
unless you are running it at 230v but I don't think you can
I would look for one rated for Volt-Amps instead of watts
It's best to round up to be safe add 40 - 60 watts

Maytag model MDE7057AYW 5600 Watts dryer runs ,but


5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

Basboard heater installation


if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
