Well your electric company charges by kilowatt hours. For example, if you run a 100 watt light bulb for 10 hours, that is equal to one kilowatt hour or electricity. So you run your 2000 watt hair dryer for 1 hour that's 2 kilowatt hours (but who ever runs one for one hour?). Now my electric company charges about 11 cents/kilowatt hour, so actually that hair dryer is not using much power at all, so I wouldn't worry. If you want to go down to a lower wattage that would allow you a little leeway with how long the appliance is used but not enough to matter. You can also use the dryer on low or medium to save some money if you would like. The things that use massive amount of power, because they are high wattage and running constantly are microwaves (although they are not always running), air conditioners, dehumidifiers, electric heaters, and even your computer uses more power that your hair dryer will. You should also check out this add I read one time about the things in your house that use energy (actually related to a hair dryer) Hope all this helped!

Is a house plug with a cfic braker light suppose to be red or green


Most are green when functioning properly. Many have no lights at all. Try depressing the reset and see if the outlet works again. If not there are other things to look for. Often times one GFI outlet feeds multiple more outlets from the "load" connection on the back side of the GFI. If there is something wet, overloading the rating, or something with a fault in any of the outlets multipled off the single GFI it will trip. Disconnect all devices then attempt to reset. If that doesn't work and you possess some electrical skills pull the GFI outlet and disconnect the wires going to the "load" connection (While power is off) Re-energize and attempt to reset the GFI Outlet. If it resets your problem is beyond that outlet in the circuit of what you disconnect. You may not have found all the affected outlets. FYI if you have a 15amp GFI the rule of thumb is you can put more devices on outlets working off or through the GFI that add up to more than 1500 watts. If it is a 20amp GFI a quick rule of thumb is no load over 2000 watts. Space heaters, blow dryers, and hair curlers are often 1800 watts each. One alone and can trip a 15 amp GFI.

Dryer just stopped working. Light still come on. Timer sounds like its works. Door clicks when closed. The clothes were almost dry. Do you thik this could be a thermal fuse?


Ours did the same thing, light was on, timer sounded like it was working, door switch clicked like it should, and had full power to and through cord to drier. Thanks to all the posts on here I was able to narrow it down to the thermal cutoff fuse. it is the narrow and long white plastic fuse with two blue wires, located on the lower portion of the blower motor duct. I pulled it and useing an ohm meter determined it was blown. I obtained another from a local parts store for $14.95 went back home and replaced it. wa,la. its working again and my wife is happy again. thanks to all on this site for posting this money saveing information. Especially right here at Christmas time....

Why shuld we save electricity


The argument for 'saving electricity' is saving at 'peak' times so additional generators don't have to be started up to meet peak demand. The additional generators are smaller, they cost more to run per Kilowatt generated.

A second argument for saving electricity is so we can continue expanding our economy by adding new homes and businesses, without needing to build another electric generation plant.

A third argument for saving electricity is your bill is lower.

The Kvar product you posted under is a scam. If you want to reduce electric bill, consume less electricity.

Electric dryer makes a popping sound and sparks come from the lower back of the dryer


That doesn't sounds quite right. The first thing to do is stop using the dryer. Unplug the dryer.

This is a serious issue. Basically you got a fire hazard and you may get your house burned down.

I know this is not the best solution, but you should contact the manufacturer for assistance (I bet they don't want a lawsuit because a fire hazard), Check what they can do for you. If there is nothing that can be done because the age of the appliance, get a professional tech to check what's going on. I believe is better to expend some money fixing the appliance other than saving money and getting a burned house.

After giving you a little crude reality, If you have a background about electricity, the problem may be caused by the main motor, there is a short circuit or overcharged circuit. I don't think this will be a cheap repair. If the appliance is more than five years old, don't even try it.

You are lucky enough not to get fire yet.

Your inverter has a peak of 3000 watts rating and should power that hair dryer. Make sure your batteries are in good shape. The inverter can only put out what it takes in. 1800 watt demand on the inverter requires 1800 watts from the batteries.
