I have brought one of this clock to China and plug it on a 110V outlet since the clock is compatible with 110V. But weird thing happens, it slow down almost one hour during eight hours usage. I DO set up the time right. And I've tried two or three 110V outlets already, still slow down.

Hi, If that unit came from the states, the power would be 110V and in China tjhe voltage they use is 220V. That means, you have to check the fuse in the radio, replace if it is already open.If the fuse is still okay, the power circuit has a burned parts. My advise is to send it to a electronic tech or the nearby service center. Hope that helps!
If the AC unit is 110V then you must plug it into a regular 110V outlet. You cannot plug it into the 220V outlet. Either get a bigger 220V unit or use a 12 gauge extension cord to get it to a 110V outlet.
I'm assuming that you brought a vacuum cleaner from a country that uses 220V to a country that uses 110V.
You either have to change the motor to a 110V motor, or find a way of plugging the cleaner into a 220V supply.
You could contact the manufacturer and ask them if they have a 110V replacement motor for your model. (Safety warning... it will take double the electrical current, which will cause four times the heating in the cable; this could be dangerous.)
A better solution would be to have an electrician fit a 220V outlet in your house. The pin arrangement will be different to prevent 110V deviced being plugged in to it. You'll have to cut the existing plug and replace it with the correct one for that voltage for your country. (I have used a British 'Dyson' in this way, plugged in to a tumble-dryer outlet; I use a GFI for extra safety.)
Sorry it took so long to help you. You should have returned the Clock/Radio to the place of purchase for exchange. The Clock/Radio has had problem with component failure. This is probably happen during its shipping from china to the USA. This does happen unfortunately. Shipping can be the cause of many problem with electronic equipment. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.
If your dryer came with a 4-prong plug, do not change it. For the very reasons you quoted with the article, you may screw up the 110v accessories required of your appliance (like the clock or digital display). It is best to change the household outlet to a 4-prong type. Just make sure your wiring is correct. You will need a neutral on the 4th leg, which means you will probably have to run new wiring from the outlet to the distribution panel.
