Question about Garden

1 Answer

I' am getting ready to build a new house and I wanted to have the garage wired for a air compressor that ran on 220v. I just need to know what the plug on the air compressor looks like. I think it looks like a 110v plug except one of the prongs is turned on the horizontal.

Can I rewire my 220 compressor to 110 ?

The short answer is: No. The longer answer is, the motor and controls were designed to run on 220 Volts, and as such cannot simply be re-wired for 110 Volts. You basically have 3 options: 1) Have a licensed electrician wire in a 220V circuit to your shop/garage/shed for the compressor. 2) Change out the motor for one designed for 110V (finding one that will work could be difficult, and might require modification of mounts, spindles, gears etc and probably not worth the trouble...but technically possible) 3)purchase a step UP transformer which can turn 110V North American household current into 220V.

I would like to put a 220v 20amp heater in my garage i have a fuse box in the garage as it is not attached to house so i need to know how to wire the plug in to my fuse box

Mains wiring should be carried out by an qualified electrician. If you do not have mains electrical knowledge or qualifications and you make a mistake it will kill you.

I have a compressor that is wired for 220v however I only have 110v receptacles in my garage. This is a rental and running a 220v receptacle isn't an option. My plan is to change the cord from the...

The link below explains the extension cord requirements / amps. According to the chart, 14 gauge is good for about 50 feet, however you could bump-it up to 12 to be on the safe side. If you have a dryer plug in the garage or close, you could share that plug when not in use. Go to electrical supply house (or Lowes) with drawing of the plug /outlet needed and buy the components to make cord. If you have a 115v plug in the garage with its own breaker at the panel (plug with direct wiring to the panel) you could have an electrician convert it to 220 very easily. Good luck with your future projects.

I have a brand new IR compressor model 2475N7.5 with a 7.5 hp 460v 3 ph motor. is it possible to convert it to a single phase power supply? or should i just exchange it? ... I ordered it thru Northern Tool...

When you google home made 3 phase converters, you will find many ways to make use of 220v single phase instead, however you are limited as to the hp that the motor will produce. If you spin the motor first then apply 220v, the motor will continue to turn at much reduced hp. You need full power to turn a type 30 pump depending on pulley combination/ setup. Best to return the unit and get one that will run on 220v single phase. It will most likely consume more power to do the same work however it would cost a great deal to install 3 phase. Most likely not even available at all. Many years ago, I worked at Sears and happened to see an electrician coming down from roof access of building. He told me that sears had a 3 phase generator being turned by a 220v single phase motor to run an air conditioning unit. He said that it worked quite well. Does not sound cost effective.

AO smith compressor motor missing toggle for duel voltage

Most motors will have a wiring diagram on them with numbers not colors, and show the wiring configurations for both voltages. If you do not have this then you may want to contact a motor shop and see if they can get it wired for you.

Wire digram for craftsman air compressor

thats not going to work for one the motor is rated at 220v you would need to replace the motor with one thats rated at 120v along with a different pump. you're better off to buy a smaller compressor then do that.

Craftsman air compressor, oil build up in the air line

worn compressor rings, not a real issue, I assume it is more of a build up over time, say a gram of oil is blown into the lines every year, well one gram would not be noticed nor two but since it soes not evaporate it builds up to the point that you can see it, some oil is blown by brand new compressors and over time gets to be more and more, but as long as you are still getting full pressure you do not have to service the compressor, but since this is being used on water pipes I would install a trap inline to catch the oil

My 38 hdc 024 carrier unit outside will not run

Tip: Never complete a 220v< circuit with your vascular system.
New Unit? wow wheres the installer? kk I'm assuming thats a dead end for some reason. Check for 220v at the compressor relay. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say your not getting the 220v power that you need to operate the unit. Do you have other 220v appliances such as a dryer or stove, if they are working properly that means that both legs of the 220v are making it from the pole to the house. Is the wiring in the breaker panel to the breaker that protects your condenser secure and tight. Are you getting 220v to that breaker? Is the wiring in the disconnect box by the condenser secure and tight? Are you getting 220v there? Is the connections to the compressor relay secure and tight are you getting 220v there. Is the compressor relay closing and are you getting 220v to the compressor? See how this works. Lol, Fun isn't it GL I hope this helped.
