How did you manage to plug it in? Plugs are different totally shapes and not physically capable of interchangeable insertion.

Invest in a multi meter and start looking into what you burnt up

SOURCE: transformer 110-220

Less expensive to replace the heating element. But if you already have a 1000 watt transformer then just go that route

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

SOURCE: plugged a 110 volt kenwood receiver accidentally to 220 volts

Considering 220 and 110 systems have different receptacles, you worked at doing this.

Since it is already inoperable, you may as well remove the housing and inspect the guts.
If you see burned traces or boards, don't bother to have it repaired.

If you see a fuse in a clip, you might replace it once, two would be the waste of the second fuse.

SOURCE: I Accisentally plugged My 110 Volt xbox 360 into a 220 volt outle

The reason for this is the power overwhelmed the circuit boards and burnt them out you may need to talk to someone up the Game shops or go to support.microsoft.com and see what other people think. even if microsoft tell you to DONT send it in for repair as it gets rattled in the post and rattling the console causes the Open Tray Error an extremley annoying error. hope this helps

SOURCE: Conversion from 110 volts to 220 volts

Inside the machine you have the vibrating water pump, the two heating emelents the grinder motor and group motor that are all are working with the 110. The cost of the above parts only will cost more than the price of new machine in any voltage. Moreover just consider the cost of labour for someone to make the modicifcations.

So as you may understant the only way to work your machine is to use a trasformer from 110 to 220 volts but again for a power of 1400 Watts this also a costly thing however you can try to find one but I believe it will worth it only if it is less than 100 Euro which I am no so sure if their in such a price. The only chance is if you can find a used one maybe from ebay or something which will do the same jop but very dificult to find one but worth it to try.

Hope that help you, Good luck

How to convert an American lead will depend on where you are. You can buy a universal adapter at most travel stores, but first of all consider the local supply voltage. US power is delivered at 110 volts. Australia, Europe and much of the world have a 220 to 240 volt supply. Connecting a 110 volt machine to a 220 volt supply will create smoke and potentially flames - I've seen a number of disasters. Some machines are made to operate across both supplies. Check the label on the back of the machine, near where the power cable plugs in. If it reads 110 - 220 volt you should be OK. Your local Brother dealer should be able to supply a local market power cable for you. They cost around $30 in Australia.

can i convert 110 to 220 volt for refrigerator and washing machine?

Just as a wild guess, the control circuit in the washer may not work with 60 Hz shipboard power. The motor probably is not affected. You must be getting awfully tired of hauling that washer back and forth!

You're not going to be able to do this with just a known Horse Power.

There are 3 elements to the equation, with any two, you can work out the third.

If you want to know how the amperage, you will need to know the voltage and wattage of the motor. I imagine that you already know the voltage (It's going to be 220V or 110 volt)

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Examples:

A 220v 1000 watt motor (1000 divided by 220) will draw 4.55 amps

A 110v 800 watt motor (800 divided by 110) will draw 7.27 amps

Bear in mind that most washing machines have a couple of windings for wash and spin. As an average, the was winding will usually be about 500 watts to spin and about 250 watts to wash. ALSO, bear in mind that if you are using this data for a WASHING MACHINE, then there is a water heating element in there too and that draws about 2Kw (2000 watts)

Dont just take this as read, you DO need to check wattages, but, working on what I have just said, the max consumption on a 220V machine will look like this:

At Spin, with a 500 Watt consumption: (500/220) = 2.3 amps

While Washing with a 250 watt consumption: (250/220) = 1.14 amps

Consider that the WASH and HEAT may be running at the same time.

2Kw heating (2000/220) = 9.1 amps PLUS 1.14 amps for the motor - Total wattage 10.24 amps

Watts / Volts = Amps

Amps x Volts = Watts

Watts divided by amps = Volts

check for proper voltage to the machine should have 220 volts if you only have 110 volts it will run but not heat if you have 220 volts you could have a bad heating element

What voltage is your mains supply?

The laptop's adapter should be a multi-voltage type 110 to 240 volts input.

If your mains is 110 volts AC then the 220 volt AC LCD projector won't work unless you connect it to a step up transformer (110 to 220 volt transformer).

If your mains supply is 220 or 240 volts then both the laptop and the LCD projector will work without any problems.

This will TOTALLY destroy the unit and electronics. This will most likely have to have ALL Electrical, and Electronic, components, it has had TWICE the Voltage that it usually should have. In fact it may be a total write off.

if it has a small 3 prong plug then it's 110v for the washer but the dryer should be factory 220 volt however many were sold wired too! 110 volt! just look at the plug small plug 110v large 3 prong! 220v
