Depends ... what is 'normal house voltage' where you live?

If you are installing a new electric dryer in the USA, typically, they operate at 220 Volts. If there is no special outlet at the place where you want to use the dryer, you will have to have an electrician install the proper gage wire and outlet for you. Expect to pay up to $200.00 or more for this installation from the house main panel to the dryer location.

If there is a gas line at the location, you may want to consider exchanging your electric for a gas model.

I plugged my max 110 V Oliso iron into our house's only 220 V outlet. Smoke is being emitted and it is unusable (The iron, not iron). Can someone please tell me how to fix it?


are you saying that the iron works with 110 volts and you plugged it in a 220 volts outlet??? if so then the voltage is to high for the iron (luckily it didn't get burnt) but all you need to do is plug it into a 110 volt outlet

I have brought my wok over from the UK but i have lost the electric lead firstly where can i buy one from and secondly will it be compatable with my appliance


Firstly is the WOK 220 Volt or 110 volt which is north American because if not 110 it will not work without serious house rewiring to provide you with a 220 volt outlet and then if you find a cord it will need to have the correct end for the 220 outlet you have wired in or you will have to have a compatible outlet to your cord.

How can I wire a 110 outlet to a 220 outlet?


If the bed is a 220 volt, you can only use a 220 volt outlet.
If the bed is 110/220 you should check the web for specs and wireing.

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 have a lg dryer with a 220 electric hook up plug and in my house there is only a 110 electrical outlet. is there any way I can just change out the cord to a 110 electric cord and use it?


No. the new dryers have to have a 220V power. You first have to replace or add a 220 outlet on the wall that matches the connector on the dryer.

There are electric motors that run on ether 110 or 220 but wire must be changed on the motor to change from one to the other. Look on the side or end of the motor housing for a identification sicker or plate it well have the information that well tell you which it is or if it can be either.
Now for the bad news if it was sit up for 110 or if it is only 110 the motor is most likely fried.

Dryer will not start door is closed


Carefully check your 220 outlet. You can check a 220 buy a volt meter. Make sure your volt meter is set over 220 range and put the red lead into the slot and black lead into the L shape. It could be you are not getting 220 power out of your outlet. We all know on a 220 outlet both legs have 110 on each side. A dryer takes 110 for the motor, and takes 110 for elements.

Wiring a stove


If there is no 220 outlet in the location where you're planning to put the stove then you need to run wiring to the new location. There are two seperate phases of 110 volts coming to your home. The voltage between each of these phases and the neutral wire is 110 volts. When your house was wired only 1 of the 110 volt signals was run to your 110 volt outlets. In order to create a 220 volt outlet you need both of the 110 volt signals run to the outlet.

If you have a straight shot between your breaker box and the location where you need the 220 volt outlet then this is not too big a deal. If you have finished ceilings and walls inbetween then this will be much more difficult.

If you're not comfortable with electrical wiring this would be a good time to call a licensed electrician.
