Question about Hobart ET27 4-Slice Toaster

1 Answer

Input voltage Hi, I just purchased a ET27/5 used, it is marked 208 volt. I opened the electrical box expecting to be able to change it to 120 or 240 but their is only two terminals and no jumpers, I tried changeing the configuration for 120 or 240 Wye/Delta but does not toast right (takes too long). I did try 240 with the original configuration (too fast and dark). I only have 240 volt or 120 how can I make this work?

Can my 240 volt compressor run on 208 volts?


Being an Authorized Service Center for a couple air compressor companies I can tell you I have replaced several 240 volt motors because they were run on 208 volts. Not knowing what model you have or what motor is on it, yes your compressor will run on 208 volts but it is very ******* the motor. At startup, all voltages have a dropoff then come back up to their rated voltage. The dropoff is determined by the original voltage and length and guage of lines getting the power from your transformer to the compressor With 208 volts it typically drops to around 190 volts at startup then comes back up to 205 to 208 volts while running. The motor needs the full 240 volts when it restarts and there is already pressure in the tank If the motor's not marked, call the manufacturer and see if it's rated for up to 240 volts or only for 240 volts.

Will not melt the wire even with the voltage cranked up


Hi:

You did not say what kind of machine you have, but there are two main reason for low voltage:

A) Faulty grounding, loose ground clamp or overheated terminals on the ground cable. Replace them if you notice any decoloration on them

B) Wrong voltage input. It is a common mistake to assume you have 220 Volts in your shop, when in reality it is 208 V. Check the voltage with a voltmeter and change settings in machine if needed.


Good Luck!

I need to know the power requirements for this piece of equipment. Single or 3 phase, voltage, amps etc.


It is single phase. Either 208 volts 3240 watts or 240 volts 4316 watts. Unfortunately, its difficult to know which one you have. It can be ordered either way. Here's the deal, For no apparent reason, some buildings have 208 volts, some have 240 volts. If you know when you buy new equipment, you specify which voltage you have. So if your building has 208 volts and the machine is 240, it will still work, maybe a little slower to heat up. If it is the other way around, your building has 240 volts and the machine has 208 elements, it will heat up much faster, but the life of the elements is drastacally reduced becuse they burn out much quicker. You can call Lang at 314 781 2777 ask for technical assistance and they may have a way to find the voltage if the tag is missing.

Installing an 24,000btu air conditioner. The original wiring at that outlet has an double pole 20amp circuit breaker. The old air conditioner that was their was plug into an outlet box that sat on the face...


yes your ok if they say the unit doesn't need to be changed in the incomimg power from 208 up to 230 volts or vice-versa,normally they classify motors as120/208/ 230 /460 volts, instead of 120/240/480 volts,but all line voltage varies in this voltage range between 230 to 255 volts a.c. with a +10/-10 percent tolerance either way,and as long as the instructions dont say anything about changing motor connections your good to go, just look on the motor body if possible and make sure theres no wiring diagrams to change voltage,but i would say no in a package A/C like that, and as far as the current goes your good with the 20 amp tandem pole breaker,let me know if i can further assist you. thanks

take a close look at the tubular element with a magnifying glass. the volts value should be stamped into the element. most baseboard heaters are 240 volt at low, high and medium density. wattage could be from 750 to 1500 watts

Kenmore electric range 7909083461 not reaching temp


The technician is right.  The electrician should know that amperage X voltage = wattage.  So if you lower the voltage then you lower the wattage.  The element is like a light bulb, the higher the wattage the brighter or hotter it will be.  208 volts is at the minimum so the element won't be as hot as it should be.  208 volts is just enough to make it work.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.
