I have an EWF12070W I brought back from Europe. I changed the electrical plug to 220v. I get power but the washer doesn't take on water.

Are the electric water valves not responding to 60 Hz cycles? Or what can be done to allow it to work on American elctricity?

SOURCE: er20 comes up on my washer

Your on the right track .... To narrow it down all you have to do is disconect your waste pipe from under the sink or where ever it goes to and lower it ground level , if the water startss to flow out by means of gravity then you have no blockage and its the pump if water does not flow out then its a blockage....

Either to clear the blokage or change the pump turn the machine upside down as both are easily accessible from there hope this helps... any questions dont hesitate to ask...

I just moved to France and brought my Juki TL-2010Q from the USA. I plugged it in with a European adaptor and it blew the fuse? Is it fixable? Where do I get a replacement fuse? Thank you! Suzanne


Did you mean an 'adaptor' (as in two-pin to 3-pin) or a transformer ?
It is a DIFFERENT electrical system in Europe to the USA.
The USA is 110v and Europe is 240 or 220v. The machine is
probably burned out. You would need to take it to a dealer to be checked. You can ONLY use USA electrical equipment with a TRANSFORMER, so that it can function on the different European electrical system. Good luck !

Rainbow e2 type 12 120v , accidentally plugged into 220v, would barely power up, possibly controller board defective?


probably need both as the extra 100 volts would burn the board and the motor
it is never advisable to buy electric equipment from another country because of the voltage differences but even then the plugs are made different so that the cord will not plug directly into the power outlet.

Whirlpool electric dryer 220V bought in USA and brought it to Europe Serbia. I was told that USA 220V and Europe 220V is not same. I did not plug it in yet can someone tell me what to do. Thanks


the voltage is approximately the same,the difference is the frequency of incoming power as power delivered in the USA is at 60 Hz. and power in Europe is at 50Hz. so some electronic parts will not operate on this frequency,you might be able to purchase a power/frequency inverter unit but not sure on this,talk to your power provider as they may have the answer to this

How can i go from a 4 prong 220v outlet generator to a 3 prong 220v plug for oversea appliances


Last time I was in europe, they were using AC current at 50 cycles.If you check the specs. on your genset I think you will find it is a 60 cycle AC generator. If I am correct,you can slow down the genset to get the 50 cycles needed but then you would need to adjust the field excitation to get the voltage back up. Then change the outlet to a european type that you should be able locate on line or through an electrical supply house.

I have just brought a Bose PS321GSX powered speaker system serial no 036600970520046AS back from the USA. It is 120V AC 60HZ 300 watt max. Is there any transformer I can buy to change the voltage to use in...


it should work only if you can change 120 to 220v should be a red switch most adapters only convert the plug and not the power unless it says otherwise on the adapter or it feels like a heavy transformer that will waste all extra electricity for heat

I have a Netgear wireless router WGR614 v5 with the AC adapter of 120V-60Hz-16W. I've moved to Europe where the electricity is 220V. Can I use an AC adapter of 220V for this wireless router? Thanks a lot...


Yes, make sure you have a new power supply with the right voltage output, enough current (if the new power supply is rated for more current output, it will be OK), and the right plug with the right polarity.

Check your power supply, some will actually work with a wide range of voltage, some actually go from 100-250VAC. 50Hz-60Hz

What will happen if I plug my 110V tv into a 220V receptacle?


If you want to fry your electronics or appliances that's it's a sure way to accomplish that.
While appliance working ONLY at 220v will just not work or under perform (like a hair drier) when plugging electronic equipment that runds ONLY at 110v then that item will be "fried" as all its electric components will be burnt as it will receive twice the power that it was build to receive. Should that happen the safety switch on the 220v circuit where the item was MISTAKENLY plugged will be triggered (hopefully or there will be risk of fire and serious injuries, even death) and the power will be shut off. That's a major but possible mistake.
If traveling abroad those who come to US will unlikely damage their appliances (like electric razors) as they will receive less power (110v vs 220v) and usually these items are protected against these mistakes by the specifications of their own design. The opposite is not true of course as just mentioned above.
So do not play around with dangerous items please! ;) On a positive note though: Nowadays most appliances have dual power and should work whether plugged in a 110v, 60Hz (most common in US) or 220v 50Hz (most common in Europe). So nothing really happens... it just works as long as you have the proper adapters to plug the appliance to the different receptacles.
Note: One of the differences is that (without going into the math of it all), an appliance working at 110v will draw x2 times the power than it draws when working on 220v so if an appliance was drawing 3A at 110v it will only draw 1.5A when working at 220v.
Best.

Battery Charging Problem


The problem is not with the batteris, but with your charger, you have to make sure it can take 220V or you will burn it. Look for a switch on it to change from 110V to 220V.

You have probably permanently damaged your turntable. The voltage supply in Germany is 220V AC, whereas in the US it is 110 V AC. It is just possible that all you have done is to blow a fuse in the unit, if no external fuse holders are visible then try opening up the case and looking for one near where the power cable enters the unit. If you have no luck with that then the transformer is almost certainly burnt out - this could be replaced but it is unlikely to be something you can do yourself. Please don't plug anything else that is designed for 110V into a European socket, regardless of being able to get an adaptor that will fit the socket - the voltage is different. It will almost certainly die as well and the possible risks of electric shock, fire etc. are quite significant. Hope this helps, if you want to try and get the unit repaired in Germany please ask again with details of your location and I will try and find you a reputable repair facility. If in doubt about which of your items can be plugged in in Europe then please ask as some can be switched to deal with the higher voltage, although not all. :)
