How do i change the wiring from 110 volts to 220 volts on a spa berry hot tub


You must run two 110 volt lines from the fuse box.

Unless it's a 110 tub, you don't. If the system is designed to run on 220 the circ pump and flow pump will not function properly, the power pack may not function and the tub will never reach temp. If it is a 110 hot tub I would still suggest having a licensed electrician run the line for you. Most insurance companies will not cover any type of hot tub related claim unless installed by licensed tub tech/electrician. If you insist on wiring it yourself, the BLACK wire is the "hot" wire carrying the current. In 220 installations the RED wire is the second "hot" wire. The WHITE/GREY is the neutral wire, and the GREEN is the ground. But again, I STRONGLY recommend paying the $80-$95 bucks to have it done professionally. I hope this helps =)

How to get 220 from breaker box


You are measuring in the wrong place! If you have a double breaker in the circuit breaker box, measure the voltage at the dryer outlet. You should have 110, 110, 220 at the different terminals.
If that isn't the case, then replace the circuit breaker (assuming that you have the right input voltage into the house)

I what to use 2 20a amp breaker with bar across them. I want to creat a 220v curuit connect to a disconnect box. I want to connect a water heater. How do I wire the disconnect lugs. What order do the...


You need a 220v/20a breaker. These breakers are made in one piece and connect to each leg of the 110 lines in the breaker box. Depending on the make of the box and breakers, some just snap into place. BE CAREFUL IN THE BREAKER BOX, ALL THE INCOMING LINES AND BUSES IN THE BOX ARE HOT UNLESS YOU UNPLUG THE METER OR HAVE A BOX WITH A MASTER BREAKER THAT SHUTS OFF THE BUSES. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT ABOUT ANY OF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS OR WIRING HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN DO THE WORK. BUILDING CODE IN MOST PLACES REQUIRE A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN TO DO ANY WORK OF THIS KIND. DON'T ELECTROCUTE YOURSELF OR BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN TO SAVE A FEW BUCKS.

About the two 110 buss lines, they are opposite phases so when you connect across them you will get 220. The breaker will have two terminals. Your 220 line to the heater will have to be a three wire cable with ground. The red and black wires are the "hot" 220, and the white wire is the neutral wire. The ground wire is the uninsulated wire. Be sure the wire size is large enough for 20A. That should be 12 gauge. You will be able to buy a cable with all these wires in it.

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.

Old electrical box has 3 black wires. new device has 4 colored wires (white, red, green-ground, black - hot), the box does not have a ground wire (that I can see) and the old device only had three wires. ...


Early installations grounded the neutral line at the transformer, but did not bring in a direct ground wire as required for modern installations. White is neutral and should be connected back to the transformer secondary center tap. You will need to drive an 8-foot grounding rod near the panel and bring the ground connection into the box grounding bar (tied directly to the box as opposed to the neutral bar which is insulated from the box). Red and black wires are for 220 volt connections back to the transformer and feed each breaker on that particular rail with 110 volts. Any dual 220 volt breaker will contact both vertical rails. Each light and outlet in the house should have a ground connection, a neutral connection, and a 110 volt connection. Always place a switch to interrupt the 110 volt connection, not the neutral connection. You will likely need to measure the voltage across the suspected two hot wires to confirm the incoming 220 volt lines. Hope this helps!

No current but light is on in dryer but not on dials.


your dryer is 220 volts. that will have two 110 lines going into it
one of the lines is for the motor & heating grid only
The other line runs the rest

The last time i ran my mitsubushi 8100 it put 220 through the 110 lines and burned up all my electronics in less than a minute. what happened?


Sounds like you wired it in wrong.

US domestic power supplies work on a 220V ac system, centre tapped to provide a neutral and two lives which are both 110V ac relative to the neutral, but in antiphase to one another.

Sounds like you connected one of the generator's live lines to the neutral in your wiring system. It's safe to assume that your electronics actually fried within the first second or two.

Bodging a generator into a domestic wiring system can have worse consequences than this. Unless you really understand what you are doing, and also know the local regulations, it's generally better to run an extension lead to the appliances you want to power and leave the rest of the system dead.

No Power


yes
go to your fuse box if 220 flip both switches if fuse engaged there will be like a red line or fully difused down to show that fuses has been triped
if 110 your going to be flipping switches alot cause 110 runs both motor and guages together and over power is usually the cause of this
220 circuit one 110 runs the guages and the other 110 runs the motor and heater core
also washer wont run with out the water being on saftey feature
