Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. First of all, you're asking this question in the right manner, since you are trying to get a 3 prong dryer

# Can you plug 10A 250V into 20A 240V wall outlet?

No. If we plug it It will work fine for some time after some time it starts getting heated and the plug gets heated up and it can lead to many dangers.

# Can a 240V 15A outlet used for a washer be converted to a 240V 30A outlet for a dryer?

s for USA, Canada and countries using similar 60Hz mains supplies   Conversion Dangerous and NOT RecommendedUmmm no. If you did try to do it, you'd have a pretty good cha

# Will a 20A 240V breaker be sufficient for a 240V 22A input welder or do you need to go to a 30A?

%REPLIES%    Answer   It would have to be a 30 amp breaker to use the full power of the welder.   Answer   I'd say go with the 30A. The general rule is that

# Can a 30A 240V outlet be replaced by a 20A 240V one?
