I want to install 240V service in my basement to run a piece of industrial equipment. Is it possible to do the modification without the need of an electrician? My fuse box has modern breakers and not fuses.

Just connect a pair of breakers of the correct amperage. A pair is above and below, not side by side. Breaker boxes alternate left leg, right leg, left leg, right leg the whole way down.

Can I fit a Pulsar 150 UG4(2012/13) clip-on handlebar on to Pulsar 180 UG3(2009)...without major modifications?

Hi, Champak for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

B&K 200.7: Can I switch the power from 115V 60 cycle to 240V 50 cycle for use in Germany?

Yes it is possible, but you will need to go to www.b& contact customer support and the technical department for modification. If that is not possible you should be able to purchase a step down transformer in Germany to convert 240V to 120V.

Hellooo There, I need to convert my FireStudio Project from 120v (US) to 240v (Australia). Does anyone have a circuit diagram or assist with the process for this conversion?

The specifications on the PreSonus site say the input voltage can be 90 to 230 VAC (Factory configured for the country of destination).
Without any other information i would consider opening the case and seeing if the settings are labelled. If you don't feel confident with that, your local electronics service facility should be able to do it. They will charge, but it looks like a piece of equipment that deserves the care and attention.

You could also contact and ask them for assistance, or to suggest their local service people if any.

Need instructions on how to install a 750W Fahrenheat heater. Wire size, breaker size, etc.

To know what to tell you you need to know if it is 1 phase or 3 phase and what the voltage is that it will be running on...

Assuming that it is 240v 1 phase current you will need at least a 40 amp 2 pole breaker and #8 wire for a distance of upto about 100 ft. if longer then you need to go up to #6 wire....

7500 watts / 240v equals 31.25 amps... so a thirty to too small and you will need the 40....

Wire sizing needs to go larger as the run gets longer...

How do I service a multimeter with a eepr err on it. All the manuals just say to get it serviced and I want to learn to do it myself.

Hi Russ, Unfortunately, unless you've got an EEPROM programmer and a system for wiping and recoding the Eprom (chipset), along with the specs and coding of the logic circuit, you're not going to be able to learn to do this yourself.

Fluke makes some very nice test measurement equipment, but they will not release their confidential programming codes to anyone outside of their authorized service centers, etc., so having the proper data needed to perform the repair, from a technical standpoint, isn't feasible.

Even with my basement with all sorts of test, diagnostic, and repair equipment for working on electronics, I still need a full schematic of the product needing servicing, for without that, it is extremely difficult to resolve problems with many electronic devices. Not to mention that Fluke uses mostly SMC (surface mount components) which are pretty darned small and typically installed by automated equipment during manufacture.

Wish I had better news for you, but in this situation, you would be well advised to have the service repair done by Fluke.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The problem is that there is no heat in the dryer

First, in many cases, the dryer actually IS heating, but there’s just not enough airflow out the vent to take advantage of it, so the end result’s the same as ‘no heat’.So first determine that there’s a strong flow of air out the vent. I can’t stress this enough - low airflow’s the no. 1 cause of dryer problems, not to mention dryer fires. Then check if there’s any heat in the drum when running empty. Note: there's finally a simple, inexpensive tool to test airflow in Whirlpool-built dryers!
If there doesn’t seem to be any heat at all, first check for 240V present at the dryer. I can tell you that many hours have been wasted over the years by not *doing this first*!Neglecting this is probably THE most common mistake of the novice appliance tech (and some pros who should know better! <g> ).

If you have a voltmeter or 240V bulb, just check for 240V at the dryer term. block, and you will save some aggravation and possibly a service call.

If you have no way to test this, or you are at all uneasy about messing with 240V (you HAVE read my disclaimer, right?), just go to your breaker box and throw the dryer breaker off/on several times.(If your dryer is connected with fuses, replace both of them and try it again.)Sometimes - just sometimes - resetting the breaker will restore 240V, especially in damp basements.

(On the handiest tool list: a 240V/10W bulb with leads/alligator clips, carried in your pocket - a real timesaver, and far superior to neon testers)
How you proceed from here depends on your abilities, and I’m not able to get too involved in this short article.I’d probably suggest calling a pro if you’ve proven 240V to the machine, there definitely is no heat, and there’s plenty of air out the vent. A pro sees this problem every day and can usually diagnose it in 10-15 minutes.
I will say to those of you who are ‘handy’ - start at the heat source and work *backwards*.If there’s nothing obvious (burnt wiring, etc) attach that 240V bulb to the element leads (or gas valve 120V supply), and fire the dryer up.
Light = open element (gas control/ignition system problems).
No light = other problems (thermal fuse, t'stat, etc).

Keep it simple.This one usually is.

I want to install 240v baseboard htrs in a below ground basement.

you must really love your hydro co
those heaters are a huge draw on your bill
why not install radiant heat they are cheep now in compairison
the unit is a central mount run the line in a loop arround basement and conect all the heaters in drop lines off the main line small thermostat valve for each room to control heat
cost is more for unit but savings are greater too they now make a light duty units designed for your porpose
single direct electric heaters are pigs on the hydro bell if you have gas or electric it is cheeper to run a small boiler or heat on demand system
