What would you like to do?

Can an American 240V dual phase dryer be converted to work in Korea with 240V single phase power?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

you could possibly design a fix for it but it would be a lot of trouble. the American dryer has internal components that run off 110v and that 110v is available from the three wire 220v circuit in the typical usa residence. this is because of the third wire, the neutral. the Korean 220 would be 2 wire. you would have to go inside the dryer, add a 220/110 transformer and rewire the dryer so that the 110v loads come off that transformer. it would then no longer be ul listed and would have to be evaluated by the authority having jurisdiction in Korea and back here in the usa.
Thanks for the feedback!

In the event of a city power cut can you use a single-phase 240V generator to connect across the two 120V phases supplying the house and would you still get 120V to neutral on each side?

Answer Yes you can BUT because you asked this question you should have a pro show you how to do it. Just to give you a worst case example, transformers work in both directions

Will a 240V 50hz microwave oven work in with 240V 60hz power?

It would be very strange if moving from 50hz to 60 hz would cause a problem but beware. When a transformer like the one powering a tube in a microwave oven is designed for 60

How can you convert a 240V clothes dryer to 120V?

You really cant do it because a 220 has a heating element in it to dry the clothes unlike gas that uses fire to dry the clothes and the 120 is to turn the drum.Your drier will

How many kva per leg on 3 phase 240v 50 amp circuit?

Assuming that the figures you supply in your question are line values, and not phase values, and each line current is identical, then you can find the total apparent power (in

How can you get a 240V 3-phase from 240V single-phase?

used only the two line of a 3-phase system. ex. used line 1 and line 2 only, or line 2 and line 3 or line 3 and line 1 to have a 240v single phase. The above answer has the q

Where can someone get a wiring schematic for a single phase 240V outlet?

  Answer     You don't need a schematic. (Is this an existing or theoretical application?)   After shutting off the double breakers which should be controllin

How do you run a 240V line for a dryer?

  Answer     At the service panel (breaker box) you'll need a double-pole breaker rated for the dryer (probably 30 amp) and run two "hot" wires (red & black) usin

Is it possible to hook up a 240V dryer to a 120V outlet via some sort of power converter?

  No. You need to have a 220 outlet. Your 110 has only 1/2 the voltage you need. Also, the question you ask is not really feasible. The wattage required by the heating ele

How do you use 240v 3 phase power for 480v 3 phase equipment?

Long Answer: Are you sure you have three phase 240v power? If it has three WIRES (black, white, red) that's not the same as three phase power. A good rule of thumb is if the p

Can you use a 3 phase radial arm saw on 240V?

  Answer   You cannot use a 3 phase motor on single phase power. It will be limited in it's torque output, if it starts at all. The best thing to do is put the 3ph

How can you convert household AC electrical power from single phase to three phase?

For low-power appliances you can buy an electronic power  inverter which produces 3-phase outputs from a 1-phase (single  phase) service.    Such inverters are not ch

Are there any countries that run 240V single phase?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hertz supply service.  The US runs 240V single phase in almost all residential applications.  It just so happens that the 2

How can you get 240V single phase power from a 240V 3 phase service Can you just connect to two poles of the 240V 3 phase service?

I'm sure this isn't what you want to hear, but you probably need to ask an electrician familiar with your service and what you want to connect. As a general answer, you can co
