Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a whirpool range top that i purchased that i now realize i do not have 220 V circuit available (replacing a gas range top). I have 120v available. The range top has a sticker that says 'connect only to a 3 wire 120/240 volt power supply, the neutral conductor is not required for operation of the appliance.' Besides having an electrician put in a new 220v circuit, is there anything else I can do? Will it operate off of 120v? It is a whirpool rr3024rb01. Thanks

It will not operate. The control panel will work but you will have no heat. The top and oven need 220 to actually heat up. The only thing that will work on 120 will be your clock and a warm zone if there's one.

I have a frigidaire electric stove,model # 316433603 there is power to the stove the only working is the clock

General answer for all electric stoves: Electric stoves are usually 220V in the USA. The clock is 120V. My first "guess" is that you have 120v to your clock and maybe light if the stove has one. You should have a separate 220v power cable ( see photo attached) that will power the range itself. The cord may be missing ( simple to unbolt), the cord my be unplugged, or the 220 circuit may be turned off at the fuse box or circuit breaker.

How can i change my 220V jet pump into a 120V jetpump?

Why do you want to?

You have to change the motor to a 120v model, same frame.

Service wiring has to have a hot, neutral and a ground. You should already have three wires so that is not a problem, just have to move one of the 220 hot wires to neutral. That will give you one hot, one neutral and one ground wire to make your 120V circuit.

If you only have 120V service and a 220V pump motor you can purchase a step up transformer that will take 120V in and give you 220V out. You must know the power in watts or KVA of the motor in order to purchase the correct step up transformer.

A bit more information about your situation would help.

I have had a P-44 oven in an Auntie Anne's Pretzels shop for 15 years. It has been connected to a 4-wire, double-breaker circuit. I ordered a new P-44 through Auntie Anne's and thought it would be...

hi...since the specification of your new oven is 208v 1-phase and since voltage rating on your receptacle or outlet s only would be advisable for you to purchase an INVERTER, it is a step-up transformer that converts 120v to 220 that way you can supply your oven according to its specification..thanks..

My GE PGS975 DEP1 (GAS RANGE) DIGITAL CONTROLS ARE NOT WORKING. I purchased this brand new gas range in the USA and had it shipped to Brazil. After i installed it and plugged it on every think worked...

Power supply in Brazil is not universal over the entire country. Your range was built for 120 volt, 60 Hertz power supply. If you are in some areas, you may not have the proper voltage available. 127 V found in states of Bahia, Paran? (including Curitiba), Rio de Janeiro, S?o Paulo and Minas Gerais (though 220 V may be found in some hotels). Other areas are 220 V only, with the exception of Fortaleza (240 V).

Brazil does use 60 Hetz, but if you are in an area which only supplies 220 or 240 volts, you would need some type of adapter to convert that to 120 volts for your gas range. If you connected to the higher voltage, you may have irreversably damaged the electronic control, requiring control replacement, before connecting to the proper (120 volt) supply. I would expect 127 volts to operate your range, but if the voltage varied up from that, it could damage the control. Even in the US, voltage variations of 108 to 125 are rather common.

The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.

Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Oven and oven display do not work or light up, but stove top and over light still works

Check if there both hot wires and the neutral are ok at the control board.
You should have 110-120v between each hot wire and neutral, and 220-240v between two hot wires. If power is ok, replace control board (the display unit is on the control board).
Part numbers:
White: 74009221
Black: 74009223
Bisque: 74009222 has pictures of the parts.

GE profile stove, Gas-electric

All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)
