Why are you playing around yourself?

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!


Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Dewalt radial arm saw GW1- Is it single phase or 3 phase


if the plug on the cord fits any other outlet in the house it will be single phase
if the cord is cut , then it will have only 3 wires if it is single phase
( active , neutral and ground )
if it has 4 or more wires it will be 3 phase
most saws running a 200 mm blade or around that size and used for home duty will be single phase
the phase notation will be on the plate attached to the motor of the saw
It will read voltage , amperage, watts or hp, phase and cycles

I bought this dryer and we need to switch out the plug becuase it doesnt fit the outlet can we do this?


If this is a US dryer, the device requires 240 volts and two phase to work, switching the plug to 120V single phase the dryer won't work. If you don't have the outlet you need an electrician to fit a suitable outlet.

Muh108 single phase what size breaker to use 40 or 50 amp


IF it is 10KW at 208 single phase it should be on a 60 Amp breaker.
3 Phase would be 35 Amps. Always check the nameplate for additional information. It may be configurable for different voltages. Best to check manufacturers data if available.

I bought a Fostoria 3060-3 used heater. My question is can I hitch that up with a 220 line instead of a 480? I might need a manual sent to me(I would pay for one) if no one is sure if that is something...


What you bought is an industrial voltage heater and I purchased one last year as well. According to the manual and the model number you give it translates to 30 kilowatts 60 is 600 volts AC the -3 is three phase. This is only for three phase 600 volt operation, and no you can not wire this heater single phase it will not work period. Even if you do wire this thing at 220 volts single phase double pole there would not be enough voltage to run the fan let alone heat the elements. Can you return the heater? By the way Fastenal is the distributor for these that is where mine was purchased. All of my information is out of the manual that I got with my purchase of a Fostoria FES3048-3.

I have a new water heater, and the hook up terminals are labled 1-2-3 are they hooked the same as in the panel 1-2-3 ?


No. You have to find out if you have 3 phase or single phase power. If this is a new unit you will find a wiring diagram inside the front cover. 3 phase power has 3 "hot" wires. Single phase has 2 "hot" wires. There is a big difference when you hook it up wrong. I don't know if this is a new installation or if you are replacing an old one. The terminals are numbered for 3 phase. If you look in your breaker box, 3 phase 208 will haven a breaker with 3 spaces hooked together by one bar. Single phase will have two spaces hooked together by a bar. So if the breaker kicks out it will flip all 3 space on 3 phase or 2 spaces on single phase. If you already have wires to the location of the booster heater, you may have to use single phase if that is all that is at that location. If you have single phase power you will have to look at the wiring diagram and you will see the terminal block represented for both single and 3 phase. Normally running from the terminal block will be six wires marked 1 through 6. The wireing diagram will say something like "for single phase put 1,3,5 on terminal 1 and 2,4,6 on terminal 3. Leave terminal 2 out all together. Of course at this point your 2 hot wires will go to terminal 1 and 3. There are other considerations as well. With 3 phase the circuit wires will be smaller gauge and may not carry the current you need for single phase. This is a booster heater. You need to hook up your hot water line to go into the heater and the boosted hot water to your appliance. It will not work to heat your water for other purposes. It is meant to take 140 degree water and boost it to 190 degrees. Good luck, hope this helps

I bought a new electric motor ml7112 series and


does it have capacitors on the motor (humped covers on top) If not then it may ot be a single phase. also on the motor name plate or on the inside cover of the connector box it should have wiring diaphragm that will tell you how to wire the motor, single phase motor will show 2 line connections and a three phase will show 3 line connections,,, line connections are represented by L-1 L-2 L-3 these mean incoming power.

Bought LG DLE2532W Dryer it in Canada, need to use it in Europe


For to use it with a 220/ 240vac system,you will need to convert 110vac 60hz/to240vac 50 hertz single phase therfore your transformer should have this rating,also it has to be able to handle up to 3kw or 3000watts in power, maybe just as cheap buying a new drier....

Electrical requirements for a Nexxt MO# WTMC 5321US


it would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.

Using dryer in 220V country


There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,

Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.

UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer
