There are several 220 plug styles; 4 I believe. You will need to obtain the correct cord to match your wall plug and have it installed on the appliance. If you are replacing an old appliance, you can likely use the cord off the old stove - assuming you verify its condition carefully.

If you are not completely familiar with this, I strongly recommend having a licensed electrician or service tech do the changeover for you. Its not complicated, but the consequences of incorrect wiring on 220v lines are formidable.

I have a Kenmore microwave mounted above my stove. The light that lights my stove is blown and I can't find the right replacement bulb. It has two little prongs that should fit into the unders


Are these little spot lights? About the size of 1/2 dollar round and maybe 1.5 -2 inches long? 2 prongs about 1/2 inch apart? Take one of those lights and show it to a local hardware dealer like "Lowes". There are may types and some are 12V some are 110V. Thats why I suggest showing to the local hardware guy.

How do I remove the bearing from the drive end of the armature from an AEG WSE802 Angle Grinder?


Dear Michael,

Here offered is a video by Taimo T that offers the entire process. Close attention is needed to absorb his procedure. The foundation is the basis for angle electric grinders.
Angle Grinder And Its Bearings
Please watch the entire presentation.

A small bearing puller works best. Here is examples of one to buy or borrow.

A
ATD Tools 3056 Bar Type Puller Bearing Separator Set in Molded Storage and....
B
Pump Pulley Remover Straight Type Two Claws Bearing Puller
Hand Tool

C
Wilmar W137P 6 3 Jaw Gear Puller
D
Neiko 19 Piece Automotive Bushing Bearing Driver Tool Set

The alternative is to squeeze the old bearing in a vice with soft jaws . Then move the end shaft with a brass hammer or punch to remove with an internal fit.

Fare. Well.

Make extension 220 volt cord for 220 volt welder


most 220v welders have a NEMA 10-50 plug or the NEMA 6-50 plug--the input /output ratings thru recepticle and thru plug are same-configuration of plug prongs are different( Grainger Catalogue shows simularities and differences) main difference is AC Horsepower Ratings are different, and that applies Only on equipment that uses 3 phase, not your welder.Use an Ohmmeter to touch unpowered wire connection under shroud at ground and plug prong, then red power connection to corresponding plug prong, and again to black connection and plug prong,mark them w/ felt pen w/ corresponding colors (Green, Black Red). Change out wire plug to fit into dryer or stove recepticle, or make an extention adapter plug witch fits stove recepticle and extends out thru floor to carport and goes to 10-50 recepticle-whereas ground green goes to W position (Center) Y is Black and goes to Y Black, X is Red and goes to X red and cap off the white neutral coming from plug -welders and hot water tanks do not return unused electrcity via the white neutral (return) wire--they use up what is available on demand in heating elements or in welders - the electromagnetic field.GET HELP DOING THIS, by someone who has knowledge, SKILLS and EXPERIECE. I have 1 welder fitted to go into dryer plug which has 14-30 recepticle, and i have 1 where i kill stove circuit at panel, unplug stove, plug in 14-50 plug which has a 10-50 recepticle on other end, plug in welder 10-50 -p, flip cicuit breaker switch to on-welder has full power range capacity. No oven in use while welder going--but probably wouldnt run it anyway if on different circuit.Any doubts whatsoever--anything not 100% clear--DO NOT DO THIS or any other Electrical Manipulations--have a licensed electrician stub in a secondary circuit breaker off your main if load is acceptible and have him wire in the recepticle which your plug will fit into---.

I just bought a used jbp82 and the plug does not fit the house plug in. Its a 3 prong and the stove is a 4 prong. Can this be worked out somehow?


You need to change the plug from the old stove to the new stove. It is easy to do. Black on right. white in center, and red on left. The 4th wire is the ground or green. You will not have that one to hook up.

I am replacing a 4 prong cord which is red, white, black, green with a 3 prong all black cord. My stove is a Maytag which was originally wired with a 4 prong pigtail for use in a trailer. I want to replace...


Okay, without knowing everything I would need to know; here's what I propose you do. First of all, are you exchanging the same wire size cord (eg. #12 stranded wire for 20 amp, and #10 for 30 amp, #8 wire for 40 amp,  # 6 for 50 amp, and so on) for the same application (ie. 30 amp for dryer, and 50 amp for range, etc.) ?  Let's say you are, so what you want to do is take the 4 prong off (one by one), and write down the configuration and color, as you take off each wire. And then you're going to apply this to your 3-prong plug. So, without seeing the plug and its application - I'm going to explain to you how to wire this. First, put the black (hot leg) wire will go on one of the straight prongs - and the red (the other hot leg) wire will go on the other straight prong. Now cut the white wire down to about an inch, so it can fit into the plug when you're putting the cap back on. And remember to tape this white wire with electrical tape. This is for many reasons, but its basically for safety. Now, the remaining wire (green) goes to the right-angled prong - which is your ground wire. Now your wired for 240 volts, and depending on the size of the wire - your wire size shall be in accordance with the amperage that I explained earlier. Now make sure that your power is off at the panel before you plug this oven plug into the wall. Then, turn the breaker on, then off. If everything seems okay, plug the cord into the wall (with the oven off) - and then turn the breaker back on. Then proceed to turn your oven on from there, and then if everything checks out okay, then your good to go. Good Luck with this, and I hope this works out for you. If not, feel free to contact me again. - Jim

How do you remove electric stove element


Hi goodtimefera,

Follow the steps -

1.Check to make sure the electric element is cool. Place your hand about 6 inches above the element and slowly move it downward checking for heat. If you can lower your hand all the way to the element and it is cool to the touch you can move to step 2. If it is still warm, allow it to cool completely.
2.Locate the outer most ring of the coil and follow it to where it plugs into the stove. The end of the coil has a piece attached to it that is generally a two prong plug.
3.Lift the coil slightly up from the drip pan that it rests on. Pull it straight out from the place where it plugs into the stove. Be careful that you don't bend it up, down or to either side as you are pulling so that you don't ruin the prongs.
4.To return the element to it's receptacle, place the prongs gently back into the receptacle and then firmly push it back into place. Again, be careful not to bend the prongs in any direction as you are pushing the coil into place.

Regards,
R.K.

110v Range cords


Most duel fuel ranges need 220 volts. and the outlets are different.

If you can't find a heavy standard real range cord it is because in your area they probably changed the code. Try ordering out of state from Home Depot E bay etc. Or change the outlet.
