There is NO reason why not. But usually the cost of transformers is quite high.

Rainbow E series cannister wet/dry vacuum

When using a rainbow vacuum it is important not to overfill the water basin with water as it can splash up to high and cause problems at the seperator. The seperator is the metal piece that is located at the bottom of the unit when you take the water basin off it is up inside the cannister. This piece is one of the most important pieces in this machine as it is designed to bring in the air and dirt with out letting the dirt get past it as well as keeping the water out of it as well. Keeping the water level below the plastic marker in the middle of the water basin will help to keep this from happening. When you are done cleaning with your rainbow it is crucial that you remove the seperator by un doing the hand tightened nut at the bottom of it. Hold thr seperator in one hand and turn the bolt to the right. This is the opposite way to undo normal;nuts or bolts but because the separator spins at a high rate of speed it is what is called "reverse threaded".Once you get the nut off the seperator should just come right off easily by pulling it straight down. When you get it off you must take a toothbrush(provided when ou purchased) and you must scrub this clean in order to keep from any dirt or dust getting up into the motor.Scrub the seperator as well as the area that it covers up while installed.this needs to be done each and every time you finish with the machine as you do not want to leave it because it will become rusted right on and it can break the shaft if you have to turn it to hard and if the shaft breaks it can get very costly.Rainbow does not come with a manufactures warranty only a distributors warranty and if you can not find the dist. that sold you the unit you have no one to honor the warranty. This information is stated right in the users point is if anything goes wrong with it it is most likely going to come out of your pocket. Though the manufacturer is still available the distributor go in and out of business all the time so be aware.
You must also dump all the water every time you finish using your rainbow as it will cause condensation to get up in to the seperator and rust things together. do not store it with the basin that hols the water attached. I hope this will keep your rainbow's running longer and better for years to come.

All the information you need is in your text :>)

Volts, Amp Watts To determine the wattage, use a simple multiplication formula. The ampere (or amps) is the amount of electricity used. Voltage measures the force or pressure of the electricity. The number of watts is equal to amps multiplied by volts.

Digital inverter generator has no 240 volt output

Most power inverters are strictly single-phase. Meaning true 120V or 240V, and no splitting or duplication. It sounds as if your inverter is a single phase 120V, and likely is not stackable on the AC side.

I recommend looking for a Low Frequency Split Phase power Inverter if you want both 240 and 110 volts.

I have a Ferguson step down transformer that takes input as 240V and outputs 115v The model is : TS 115/2000EC I need the wiring diagram for the output side

If it is 240 to 120/115, there should be two high side wires and two low side wires and ground wires, isn't that true?
Please post back, thanks.

My hoover smells of ammonia

I too have a problem with a bad smell coming from my henry hound hoover, but thats probely because i haven't used a hoover bag. I took the cloth filter out,banged all the dust off, then sprayed it with 'RugDoctor' pet stain remover for carpets and upholstery. It still smells a bit, but not half as bad as befor. I have now ordered a reusable,zipable,washable cloth hoover bag especially made for Henry's. It cost £8.80 from ebay with free postage. Hope this helps Nikki.
