You have to put a 220 dryer or electric stove plug.
Not 3 phase

Electric Phases for Hobart Oven


you must understand this : your electric oven must be indicate if it is a single phase( use 3 wires for 230 2 hot wires + 1 Neutral see the diagram like dryer? you must sure about this. Normally any appliance for home are single phase NOT 3 phase.

2) If you electric oven, say 3 PHASES( use 4 WIRES, 3 hot wires+1 Neutral wires) this for industrial application +comercial 270266c5-a0ad-44dc-9f40-e963255d47f5.jpgNOT for home

However if you system is 3 phase you must need to install 3phase transformer.ba1c9d4d-85e3-4744-8ce5-2f25c6e34ad3.jpg

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---.

How do i wire the plug for a 230v ac, 21 amp outlet


you will need a outlet location with two 120v legs and a neutral before you can do so. if you do not have this then go to hardware store and get a 240v breaker that will fit your breaker bucket. then wire the two legs and neutral to the location of your choice. i dont know if the plug looks like this one but it should be a 3 prong of some sort. the neutral will be marked and the two legs can go on either side. good luck.lyonhart_0.jpg

I have a WESTINGHOUSE WELDER type rs 250 that is wired for 440 volt and need to change to 220 volt.


HI:) If that is a 3 phase 440 volt and you want it to use 220 volt 1 Phase you will have to get a phase inverter to change it from a 3 phase to a single phase.

I have a miller cp 300. It is wired for 3 phase power. I need to hook it up to 230 volt power. How do I do this correctly.


You cannot do this... 3 phase and single phase cannot be inter used... see 3 phase is 440 V AC, single phase is 230 Vots AC. This is unless the unit has Dual capability, in this case the wiring could only be wired to a Single Phase. of the unit. You will need a slow blow breaker of the correct rating and also the cable must be similarly CURRENT rated. If it IS only 3 phase, you can purchase after market single phase to 3 phase converters, that will allow you to plug the 3 phase into a single phase circuit and work, they quite costly though.

My welder has 3 terminals earth,415v and 380v how do i wire it up i have 3 phase


wire the 3 hot phases to the power terminals on the welder,do not hook the earth to the welders neutral terminal,ground it to the welders case and ground it back to the panel,this way if your using a delta system the 3 phases will balance themselves,but if you hook the neutral terminal up to the welder you'll have what they call the "wild-leg" on one phase and it will be considerably higher voltage than the other 2 phases
