Dear Sir:
See the diagram attached, you must USE VOM carefully for to measure the 110VCA. Disconnect the power C.BREAKER from your house. Before to make any job.
God bless you

If your home has fuses, one of the 30 amp fuses may be blown. If breakers, not as likely you have a bad breaker, but possible. Check voltage at main electrical distribution pannel. Look for loose connections.

SOURCE: is my dryer 220 or 110 volts

If your dryer has a standard cord (looks like a extention cord) than you can not hook it into 220, it is a gas dryer if you have that plug. If you have a electric dryer it will have a much larger plug and vcan only be plugged into 220

You can't really do that. The two 110 outlets probably come for the same 'leg' of the 240. If you check them with a meter, there will be '0' volts between the two hot wires. So, they have the same 'potential'. You need a regular 240 volt circuit from a double pole breaker that is rated for the wire size that it's feeding. 20 amp-#12 ; 30 amp- #10 etc.

Why wont dryer heat up after changing out coil ?

most dryers are 220. its possible your breaker is half tripped. try cycling the breaker.. you should get 220 across it while its running. (Be careful).

Our window AC unit stopped suddenly. Completely dead. The outlet has power. It's a 220V unit. LG window AC LW2510ER Any advise what it could be? Does it shut down when it's 100F outside? Thanks...

No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Good Luck!

My 70 series dryer the heating element is not working. I checked the heating coil for continuity and it is holding 12 ohms, the fuse has continuity and it has power. Flipped the breaker to se If that was...

your voltage is not right as it should be 220 volts, check the outlet to see if you have 220 if you do then its the cord, if not then it is either the outlet or the breaker-panel, to check panel remove panel and test both legs of the breaker you should have 220 if not then replace the 30 amp breaker.

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.

Tdc is not heating any more (dryer)

If it is spinning then you may have lost a 110 leg on your electrical outlet that causes the heaters to come on. Start there and work your way back to the dryer. You should have 110 from the ground(lower center hole) to the hot left hole. You should also have the same on the 110 ground to the right hot leg. if you check both the left and right together you should have 220/240 volts. If you don't stop right there and call an electrician. If you do have 110 on each leg as we call it giving you a combined 220/240 volts (it sometimes varies) move up the line to dryer. Either the heater coil has broken (good time to check for good airflow at the vent) or a non resettable thermostat has been tripped causing the heaters to stay off. Poor airflow can cause these two things to fail. The thermostat will need to be replaced if it is the non resettable type. The heaters may have gone too. Those should be checked as well.
