The back of the receiver should indicate whether or not the power supply is a "universal" one. Many electronics these days have internal detection of the voltage and frequency and automatically adjust for it. Check the labeling next to the power plug. Worse case, you will need to purchase a transformer to change the voltage.

I have aclock on a frigidaire microwave that is loosing time


A defective clock would be the cause, the voltage is regulated by the oven circuit board, so line voltage would rally need to be way off to affect the operation of the clock. Ranges of line voltage here in USA are 110V-120V

What is the frequency of Briggs and Stratton portable generator 30552-00 and if it is 60 hz and I wanna change it into 50 hz, Is it possible and how?


It be better to obtain an unit that already design for your area as it will the appropriate electrical outlets.

As for the 30552-00 would be 60 Hz with running at a governed speed of 3600 (3750 unloaded).

Being a two pole generator frequency is determined by dividing engine as follows. 3600 / 60=60. Engine is RPM is in minutes and must converted to seconds. For 50Hz operation the engine speed must be reduce to 3000 rpm (50hz * 60seconds = 3000 rpm)

What is the wattage of Kenmore 385.15202 sewing


The wattge used should be listed on the machine or it's wiring. If not, you should go to ( sears.com ) and find support. I do not see a problem using an outlet there from a public power as long as you have set the unit to use the correct cycles which is normally 50Hz or 60Hz. Some electronic devices such as yours will operate on either, but you will normally have a switch to manually set which Hz setting you need. The power you recieve from the utility will be either 50Hz or 60 Hz and you will have to set the unit to match the utilities rating. Best Wishes.

Ordered vv20 portable 220 volt heater for my american home. question- will the heater work on my 220volt 60hertsystem with no damage to the heater. -heater came from great britain


If it says "100-240V, 50/60Hz", it will work anywhere with the correct plug.
Frequency ("cycles per second")is no problem usually as most things work on 50 or 60 Hz 60 Hz converts more easily to DC than 50 Hz , there's enough tolerance you can ignore frequency. Any clocks keeping time from frequency must have a sine wave.

Will a UK SONY KDF - E50A12U LCD Projection TV work in the USA?


In the United States we have one flavor of electrical power. That is 117 VAC (Volts Alternating Current) at a (alternating) signal of 60 Hz.
Hz stands for a man named Hertz who discovered the phenomena of frequency in the 19th century. It was originally was called "cycles per second" but has been renamed long ago.

The UK uses 220 VAC at 50 Hz which is a different flavor of electricity.

Since Sony (as do most manufacturers) produce sets for the differences in regional use your set simply won't work in the U.S. There are transformers available to convert 220 VAC to 120 VAC (Your set draws 210 Watts when it's on and 17 W when it's off. That means you need a fairly heavy duty transformer to make the change. Unfortunately because your set was set up to work with 50 Hz (it is branded as a British production set)
I wouldn't risk operating it at 60Hz which is the type the U.S. uses. Besides that your tuner is designed to receive a different format video than the United States uses.

We require condenser fan motors for Interclisa Carrier package (rooftop) air conditioner model AAD 250 (1980's model) model. Air conditioner - supply voltage 380 Volts 50 Hz AC. Condenser fan motor voltage...


Hi, this is an odd voltage 380 volts. Is it a 3 phase unit? To get a 220 volt 50hz condenser fan motor, you will have to go through a refrigeration/air conditioning parts house and order this. 60hz you would have no problem finding one in stock. Carrier is a good unit, and have been around for many years. You shouldn't have any problems locating one.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS You will need to go through a wholesale parts house.

I purchase a microwave which is 240v 50z but in my country we usually use 230v 60hz, can i use AVR to solve my problem?


Hi. An AVR (auto voltage regulator) will not change the freqs from 50 Hz to 60 Hz. An AVR only changes voltage. The frequency in is the same frequency out.

Having said that.... I don't think your going to damage your unit as long as you don't run it for long periods time. I live in the tropics and use 4 different AVRs myself. I have had both 50z and 60 hz electronics and appliances running fine on 60 Hz for the last 7 years. Your call! Hopefully this was useful information.

50Hz to 60Hz conversion


Hi, Your idea is basically sound and should work as long as the UPS originally is designed to produce 240V 60Hz and has its own built in timebase. The reason is that the input as long as the voltage matches makes no difference (50 or 60 Hz). By design, the UPS converts the input voltage to DC to charge the internal battery. The battery then powers an electronic circuitry that produces the 240V 60Hz. The input is then isolated from the output in terms of frequency. This is a common design, however, there are some (not many) that uses for its local oscillation sampling from the source and therefore will replicate the input frequency to its output, but very rare; it's better that you know they exist. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards. P.S. The only problem with 50 and 60 Hz is heat buildup which is tolerable and still within safe parameters. The only time the 50/60 HZ makes a big difference is when motors are used, timers such as in the early designs of microwave ovens, washing machines, etc., pumps and other highly inductive consumers. Most electronic devices converts the AC input to DC and therefore the frequency has negligible effect. Of course others may see it differently.
