Question about Panasonic KX-FHD331 Plain Paper Thermal transfer Fax

1 Answer

KX-FHD331 problem I have the above machine for 125 volts. unknowingly I plugged it into a 240 volt outlet and something blew. I pulled out the power supply and there was no mark anywhere suggesting anything had blown. all capacitors and resistors are OK. does it have a thermal fuse? what could have blown?

I would have to guess that you have fried the power supply, that would be the board where the power cord connects, there should be a 15 amp fuse around that connection so check for it. This may need to have a tech look at....

Where is the reset on hotpoint tvfs83 tumble dryer as good power into machine but no life or lights coming on. machine is 4 weeks old


NORMALLY SIMPLY UNPLUGGING THE CORD FROM OUTLET FOR A FEW MINUTES WILL RESET IT.

I SUSPECT YOU BLEW A THERMAL FUSE OR BAD DOOR SWITCH

CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS POWER TO AND FROM THE OUTLET FIRST

How do i connect a three prong wire to a four prong plug for 240 volts


DO NOT DO THIS.

A 3 prong plug is L1 L2 and ground, a 4 pong plug has a neutral.
If you are backfeeding a dryer outlet it is dangerous. Generator N and G should be isolated unless it is a seperately derived source

I have a 12 inch chraftsman table saw with 2 wires coming from motor. The wiring diagram inside the cap shows it to be wired for 240 how do I wire that thru a switch and to a three wire recepticle


Not quite sure what your question is - Are you trying to plug a 240 into a 110/120 outlet? Or are you trying to plug this into a 240 3 prong outlet?

Traditionally, table saws don't come with a power cord - you must supply one. Usually on the motor there is a metal plate that describes volts/amps/phase/hp etc. Get the Volts/Amps from this plate, then measure the approximate distance between your table saw and the 240 outlet. The gauge of the power cord depends upon the Volt/Amps and the length of the cord. There are many volts/amps vs length for wire gauge conversions on the net. I always get a bigger wire (smaller gauge) than what is recommended. Expect to pay $100 or more for the cord (don't be cheap here). If you have an under rated cord, you can start a fire, burn up your motor, melt plugs into outlets and have to replace the outlet (don't ask how I know).

I'm a little suspicious of the "white and black" wire from 240 - it's usually "white and red" with a "black" ground. 240 is made from two 120's - opposite sine wave. So black is usually the common ground, while the white and red are the two 120's. Volts between white-red=240, white-black=120, red-black=120. If you're absolutely sure that white-black=240, then you can just connect a ground wire to the motor case. Many home table saws can be wired for 240 or 120 - you need to make sure that you're hooking 240v to the correct wires. If you're uncertain at all, then don't do it.

I have wired 120 to a 240 motor by accident and the motor ran - it had no power and didn't spin at full RPM. You can damage a motor this way, so I wouldn't recommend it. I have never put 240 to a 120 motor - so I don't know what happens (guessing you could burn up the motor coils).

With all that being said, if you have 240 outlet with 3 wire receptacle, then just use a multi-meter to determine the 2 "hot" and the 1 ground. Volts from hot1-hot2=240, hot1-ground=120, hot2-ground=120. If you don't have a multi-meter, buy one (approx $12). Once you have it wired up, then try the motor by flipping the switch on then off again. If the motor didn't spin, then you did something wrong. If it hummed but didn't spin, you have some connections wrong inside of the motor. If it spins the wrong way, then your wiring inside of the motor is wrong (doesn't help to flip the wires on the outlet). If you blew a circuit breaker, then the wiring to the motor is wrong.

I rewired the unit in its 3-prong orientation and have plugged it into our 20A outlet. In the current orientation, only the dryer works. However, if I switch the black and red wire, only the washer wo


if i understand correctly you have it connected to a 240 volt circuit protected by a 20amp breaker, then you should have it on a minimum of a 240 volt circuit protected by a 30 amp breaker ,then you should have 120volts from the red wire to the white neutral wire and 120 volts from the black wire to the white neutral wire,or 240 volts between the red and black wires, then the unit should operate correctly as the dryer needs 240 volts and the washer uses 120 volts to operate as this is how the unit is wired to operate

I accidentally plugged computer avr 220v to 110 could it affect my power supply


If the computer power supply is a 240 volt unit and you plugged into 110 volt mains the the computer should be OK.
Some power supplies have a voltage selection switch on the back of the power supply switch to 110 volts and it should work.
If the power supply is 110 volts and you plug it into a 240 volts mains then you will damage the power supply and possibly the computer as well.

I think I blew the fuse on the machine... heard a loud pop followed by the smell of something burnt... Please tell me this can be fixed...


If there was a bang and a burnt smell then you have destroyed the breadmaker. It would be cheaper to buy a new one than trying to get it repaired.
You should have connected the breadmaker to a stepdown transformer from 240 volts to 110 volts.

I live in germany (military) what is the power 120-240?


Good day!! The 120-240 power simply means the supply of your TV can be plug in to 120 Volts AC to 240 Volts AC that will come out to your outlet.For example your outlet is 120 Volts AC you can plug in your TV in there.In short your TV supply is auto-volt.
I hope this information could help you.Thank you.

125 v 4 amp fuse keeps blowing


if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it
