If no one has the specs on this transformer but you know the power rating, apply this formula: Power/Voltage= Amperage. It might not be a big help but it sure will put you in the right range. The other solution would be to obtain a schematic or parts list for the unit. Hope this helps!

what you need too find out is what is the amperage of the 220 oven and may have to run the proper size wire rated for the amperage back to electric panel to the proper size breaker the info should be on the name plate

Hi gladysmorin...

We would need the info from your metal tag on the surger motor before we can tell you what the power consumption would be.

So you will need to look on the metal tag that is attached to the surger motor and retrieve that information, you will need the amperage and the voltage.

But you can also figure out how many watts any appliance will consume in power...you will do some math.

If you want the watts,volts or amps for a given appliance follow the examples below:

Amps X Volts = Watts

example: 3.0 amps X 220 volts = 660 Watts

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Watts ( / ) divided by Amps = Volts

example: 100 watts ( / ) divided by10 Amps = 10 Volts

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Watts ( / )divided by Volts = Amps

example: 60 watts ( / ) divided by 120 volts = .5 Amps

( / ) = the right slash means...divided by.

Please take time to rate me

You're not going to be able to do this with just a known Horse Power.

There are 3 elements to the equation, with any two, you can work out the third.

If you want to know how the amperage, you will need to know the voltage and wattage of the motor. I imagine that you already know the voltage (It's going to be 220V or 110 volt)

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Examples:

A 220v 1000 watt motor (1000 divided by 220) will draw 4.55 amps

A 110v 800 watt motor (800 divided by 110) will draw 7.27 amps

Bear in mind that most washing machines have a couple of windings for wash and spin. As an average, the was winding will usually be about 500 watts to spin and about 250 watts to wash. ALSO, bear in mind that if you are using this data for a WASHING MACHINE, then there is a water heating element in there too and that draws about 2Kw (2000 watts)

Dont just take this as read, you DO need to check wattages, but, working on what I have just said, the max consumption on a 220V machine will look like this:

At Spin, with a 500 Watt consumption: (500/220) = 2.3 amps

While Washing with a 250 watt consumption: (250/220) = 1.14 amps

Consider that the WASH and HEAT may be running at the same time.

2Kw heating (2000/220) = 9.1 amps PLUS 1.14 amps for the motor - Total wattage 10.24 amps

Watts / Volts = Amps

Amps x Volts = Watts

Watts divided by amps = Volts

It sounds like the replacement 220 volt transformer is putting out too much power, as replacing a 110 volt transformer with a 220 volt one should have no effect on other components, as the output voltage and amperage should be the same as the original one.

Um NO, It's only single phase. You need to get a suitable Amperage 220v - 120v step down transformer.

If you mean can a 220 volt dryer be converted to run on 110, the answer is no. It needs the higher voltage to run the heating elements. It would be possible to make a 110 volt electric dryer, but it would require very thick wire and a very large breaker to handle the amperage that would be required. Sorry I couldn't give you better news.

The wattage of the heating elements will determine the amperage you need. Take the total wattage of all the elements and divide it by the voltage you are using (probably 220). That will give you the amperage. Example: 4400 watts divided by 220 volts equals 20 amps.

I don't see what range you're referencing. I see a title of microwave ovens. But, in any event, here's circuit requirement for each.

If it's a cooktop range: 220 volt 30 amp dedicated circuit

If it's a microwave: 110 volt 15 amp dedicated circuit

If there is no 220 outlet in the location where you're planning to put the stove then you need to run wiring to the new location. There are two seperate phases of 110 volts coming to your home. The voltage between each of these phases and the neutral wire is 110 volts. When your house was wired only 1 of the 110 volt signals was run to your 110 volt outlets. In order to create a 220 volt outlet you need both of the 110 volt signals run to the outlet.

If you have a straight shot between your breaker box and the location where you need the 220 volt outlet then this is not too big a deal. If you have finished ceilings and walls inbetween then this will be much more difficult.

If you're not comfortable with electrical wiring this would be a good time to call a licensed electrician.
