Answer for USA, Canada and countries using similar 60Hz household electricity services

Some appliances need two power leads, 120V for the washer and a separate 240V for the dryer. Others need only a single 120/240V service. Check what is available at your local electrical goods stores or from online websites.

Why does an Asko Washer Dryer Combo trip the breaker?

The USA Asko combo series runs on 110V, which is unusual for a clothes dryer. A USA dryer usually runs on 220V and has its own dedicated circuit breaker, but the Asko can run on a standard household outlet which probably shares a breaker with other outlets in the house. A clothes dryer takes a lot of current. According to the specs on most Asko combos I looked at online, your unit probably uses close to the maximum current your breaker can handle. If you are using other electrical devices at the same time, you will blow the circuit. It may even be the use of overhead lighting if it shares the same breaker. One more thing on Asko: According to many of the online reviews, the 110V combos have a tendancy to have overheating problems in the wiring when using both washer and dryer simultaneously. I would suspect that this is due to not cleaning the lint screens, so be diligent. A dirty lint screen causes the dryer to work extra hard and draw more current.


What would happen if a 240V breaker was on and someone attempted to turn on the clothes dryer?

Don't understand this question. If the breaker is on, then the dryer would function normally, if the breaker your are referring to is the one for the dryer. If the breaker is off then no function. A dryer runs on 220.


Why wont your Electric Clothes dryer turn on anymore?

Assuming your dryer blower does run, then you must have one of the phases dropping out. Check all electrical connections at the breaker or fuse box, dryer receptacle, and wiring going into the dryer. If your blower runs, then your neutral is probably okay. Check one of the "hot" leads. I suspect one has come loose, or wasn't fastened at all.


What adapters do you need to plug your 240V Ac plug into a 110V AC supply?

There are no adptors to plug a 240v plug into a 120v receptacle. 240v requires two hot wores and a neutral and ground. 120v requires one hot wire, a neutral and a ground. If you have something that runs on 240/120 you need the cord and adaptor that came with the equipment as you willl need the wires to mate up accordingly.


Can a gas dryer be converted to an electric one?

For a gas dryer in the US you will need a 120 volt outlet to plug into. The old electric dryer was 220 volts so that outlet cannot be used as it is currently. Second, you will need to have a gas line run to the site of the new dryer. That should be it.

Can a washing machine run on propane?

A dryer certainly can, and the hot water supplied to the washer can, but a washing machine runs on electricity, so you would need to have a generator that runs on propane to make this a reality.


Does Brazil runs at 120v or 220v?

Brazil has a nominal voltage of 220/380V.


What makes a 480 motor with up down and stop 120v switch work?

I think I understand what you are asking. 3-phase motors usually are equipped with a starter or contactor, since all 3 hot wires need to be switched. The control voltage that runs the starters is 120V, because it's safer and also 120V switches and relays are cheaper. You would have a 480-120V transformer (called a control transformer) in the starter box to provide the 120V "control voltage". So the arrangement you describe would have two contactors, with two phases reversed between them. Energize one, and the motor runs forward. Energize the other, and it runs reverse. The switch sends 120V to each of the contactors, which are equipped with 120V coils.

In Icy Tower how can we hit high score in Combo's?

Combo jumps can be made by jumping at least two floors, at least two times, each jump taking maximum 2 seconds. After making a combo-jump, the combo mode activates. The meter to the left of the screen will fill up, and then drain within 2 seconds. In order to stay in combo mode, the player needs to make another jump of at least two floors high. When the meter runs out or if the player makes a non-combo jump, the combo will end and the player will be given extra score.
