Plugged 120v window AC into a 220v socket

I bought a 6000 BTU window AC and plugged it in the wall socket for the AC. It turned out that the socket is 220v. Now my AC is not working. Is there a fuse in Whirlpool ACQ062PS1 that I can just replace? I don't have the manual since I just bought it use. HELP!!!

My soket 13A fuse is loaded wit a fridge of 400watts,it keeps burning it,what is the permanent solution?


A normal wall socket is good for 15Amps (in U.S.)
400 watts is 3.3Amps @ 120V.
Either the fridge is drawing more wattage, or something else is plugged in the same wall circuit or the fuse or breaker is faulty.
Or the wall outlet is 220V .

Plugged 120V appliance into 220V socket


Its dead, and whatever you do, DO NOT plug it into any power again, it could cause a fire so fast that you would be in mortal danger.
Most of the world uses 'real' levels of power, your american appliances cannot handle it.

Here in Australia we have different power sockets and power supply As I understand the machine I have has 120V 60HZ 1025 W What do I need to use it here in Australia? Do I need a new plug or a...


good day.

first,the power socket,,try to see the power plug of your machine and the power socket you have..compare it..when its compatible no need to replace,,if not you need a socket adapter.or if not available buy a new plug (if your plug is not compatible to the socket)

secondly,you don't need a transformer if your ac supply in Australia is 120v..
if the supply in your place bigger than 120v...like 220v,230 or 250v..you have to use a step-down transformer with input of what you have in Australia and the output is 120v..and of course pay attention for the wattage of transformer to avoid over heat or burn..I suggest to buy 1500w...

thank you and good luck

We just bought a frigidaire 22000 btu unit. We we


If you have or know someone how has a multi meter just test that you have 220 volts at the outlet. Thats about the only way to tell. The fan will run if you only have 120v at the outlet, just not the compressor. so it will not cool. If you only 120v at the outlet it could be just a fuse or breaker problem. If it's a new outlet then it could be wiring wrong also.
Hope this help

JBL on stage II speaker doesn't work


If your 120v unit is not marked for use with 220-240v and you plugged it into such a socket (even once), you probably fried the AC adapter and will need to get a replacement.

Converting 120v AC adapter to 220v AC adapter


I live in the Philippines, but I've got relatives in the US who send me gadgets as gifts. I've had the same problem with my laptop before but when I called HP call center, they said that as long as it says there input 100 - 240V, then it's ok to plug it in a 110 or 220 socket. Here in the PH, we have 220V sockets, but Americans use 110.

Anyway, your phone says it can only be plugged to a 120V socket (max) so that means, you have to use a transformer (that's what we call it here. a black box-like thing) to convert the volts from 220 to 110. If you plug your phone directly, it might explode.

I hope i answered your problem.

How to change tension from 120V to 220V


If you are sending a sewing machine which runs on 120volts to a region that has a 240volt power supply you will need to get a
power step down converter that will fit into the socket of the 220volt supply ,and will have a socket that will hold the plug of the 120volt supply going to your machine.
the converter must reduce the 240v down to 110v .

Window or wall mount


The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil
