A GFI? ... Outlets in the home away from water do not require GFI protection. If this GFI outlet is over your sink ... consider moving your AC to another location. If it is away from the sink ... plug it into a non GFI protected outlet.

Flavel milano e50. Why does everything except the oven work?


Check the circuit breaker for the oven. 220 volts are necessary for the heating element. 110 volts for the light and clock controls. The 220 volt breaker looks like two side by side breakers with their trip levers joined. Sometimes one will trip without tripping the other. Try resetting the breaker or better yet replace it.

I have a white knight 38aw dryer that has just stopped getting hot any advice welcome and where do I get spairs


check your fuse box to see if one of the breakers are tripped. A dryer uses 110 V to run but the heater uses 220 if one breaker is tripped it will run but not heat because it will only have 110 V.. if that doesn't work then you got to check wiring and heater and switch. Check e parts replacement on line on how to do this

What do i have to do to plug my 110 air conditioner into where my 220 window unit


You need a step down transformer, to convert 220V to 110V. You can't just plug the 110V A/C unit in directly unless it is clearly marked as being suitable for multi-voltage supply (110V - 220V input).

Such a transformer has to be of sufficient capacity to handle the current, or wattage, that will be required. The Frigidaire unit in your question is a 3.5 kW cooling capacity, so the transformer would need to be about the same, ie for a 10A supply at least. They are quite big boxes, about $120.

You would put this in the roof or in a cupboard.

Can i plug a 110 air conditioners into a 220 plug in


Hi Shawn:
A 110 air conditioner would only use 1/2 of the available 220, so , the answer is yes, with a great BIG CAUTION!!!!!
You have to know how to safely wire in the appropriate plug.
- 220 usually will have 4 wires: Red, Black, White, and Green.
You get 220 between the red and black, the White is available for 110 to drive a fan or whatever.
- 220 sometimes only has 3 wires: Red, Black, and green
Here you have 220 with no 110, like a baseboard heater.
- 110 has 3 wires: RED OR BLACK, White, and Green.
You get 110 between the Red or Black and the white.
The White is called Neutral.
Do not use the green wire as a neutral if there is no white.
The green wire is a ground and is for safety purposes.

PLEASE!!!! If this is not perfectly clear and within your ability, DO NOT TRY TO WIRE IT! Get someone who is trade certified to help you. Also, don't even think about messing with the wiring unless the circuit breaker is turned off..

Not drying clothes


First check your breakers in the main box. The dryer lights and drum will spin with 110 volts only the heating element needs 220 volt if one of the breakers or fuses are tripped it will not heat. Trip the breakers off then turn them back on and check it. If it still wont heat check the heating element and wires leading to it as well as the 110/ 220 volt connector it may be bad or have a wire off, if all is ok then the heating element is probably bad and a new one needs put on.

My pump (pentair whisper flow 1 hp) has been making noise for about a year. Then it started making a clicking noise on top of that, and I knew it wouldnt last but a week. A day later it never came back...


Based on your description of the breakers you should have 230VAC to the pump motor. Even if it is only 115VAC you should still get a response from the unit when powered on. A 230-connected motor will run on 115 for some time but will overheat and eventually fail. If you are getting nothing you have issues with the power as well as the pump. Get the $40-$50 multimeter and check your line voltages to ground and line-to-line. You will find a problem somewhere.

And to answer your other question...yes, connecting 230VAC to a motor setup for 115 will burn up the winding.

Electrical issue...220 dryer outlet problem


ok start at the pannel is there a double breaker there
usually a 30 amp two pole breaker this is how a pannel works first breaker pulls 120 off of one side of pannel second breaker pulls off 120 off the other side of pannel if you look the buss bars you will see that they interchange from one side of the pannel to the other so at the breaker you are checking make sure you have 120 v on output of one half of breaker and 120 on second half of breaker when you use a volt meter put one side to gng the other side to wire comming out of breaker you should have 120 on both sides if not you have a bad or tripped breaker

Compressor causes 20 amp breaker to trip.


If I did the math correctly, 5.5 HP is right at the boarderline of 20 amps, particularly for an older machine that has some deteriorating electronics.

What to do? Can you reconfig the motor to run on 220 Volts??? It would then run on 1/2 the amps.

If you have a dedicated 120 line for this compressor now ... all you have to do to change that to 220 is change the breaker (I presume you have a vacant slot to do this). Find the "neutral" for that wire (white) ane make it the "red" for your compressor line ... (and mark it as such for your future behefit) change the outlet from 110 V 20 A to 220 V 20 A. Both lines will run on #12 with G wire.

If you dont have a slot, you could change one of your standard slots to a "piggy back" remodeling style breaker (has two breakers in one slot). This will free up one slot in your panel for the new 220 (double pole) breaker.

Let me know what you think

Circuit breaker

Happy to assist,

HOW MANY BTU IS THE AIR CONDITIONER?
And is it 110 or 220 line!

If it is using 110 or 115 volts like normal house current and it throws circuit breakers in your electric box,then you need to run a dedicated line just for the Air Conditioner!
Usually this happens to 110 -115 volt air-conditioners that are more than 12,000 BTU and do not have a dedicated electric line in the wall only for the air conditioner!

New air conditioners have a circuit breaker built into the units plug!
And I have seen some that throw that breaker to off frequently even if it's only an electric surge! Which it should not do!
if its the case and it's new, take it back to the store and ask for a different model, size, or brand!
Fedders had an 18,000 BTU/ 110-115 volt unit that did this with every single unit last year! I stopped selling that unit only!!
