What's the reading at the service panel? What do regular 115V outlets read at? What kind of meter are you using? Chances are you have 480/277V 3 phase power to this building. Whoever wired the outlet used a 277V feed, possibly because 240V was not avaliable. You should call an electrician, repair of this problem may involve instalation of a transformer.
Yes, you can plug a 240v motor into a 230v outlet.
Yes, it can be and there is no problem at all Because most of the electrical appliances are made to work on 220v - 240v so it can also be plugged into a 240v outlet.
The pin configuration of the 240 volt receptacle is different from a 120 volt pin configuration. This is a safety factor to prevent the wrong voltage being applied to the wrong devices.
What is your question? A standard outlet is 110V. A 220 outlet is shaped different so that you know it is 220. You would never run 220 through a 110 outlet.
You will burn up your appliance!!!!!
If you need to ask, you should have someone who knows how do it....
You can, but be advised that whatever you plug into the new outlet should not exceed 5000W capacity (20A x 250V = 5000W)or you could risk overheating the new outlet with serious results. To prevent this, you should make sure the circuit breaker is a 20A also.
Yes, just make sure it is a 220 volt switch.
If you don't know that then you shouldn't be messing around with electricity. It's dangerous.
The two are effectively the same; so Yes.
Off hand no but your explanations are not clear as to who is doing what to whom,,
Not only will it work, but it will last for much longer than if it was connected to 220volts!
If the 220V circuit is dedicated, is to derate the circuit to a dedicated 110V outlet. Replace the 220V breaker with a 110V breaker and install a 110V outlet in place of the 220V outlet. If the original circuit was 20A or greater go with a 20A breaker and a 20A outlet as Airconditioners are fairly large loads. Do not exceed the current rating of the old circuit as that is all the current the existing wiring can handle.
An existing outlet can be converted by replacing the 30A circuit breakers or fuses in the circuit breaker or fuse box with 15A breakers or fuses. The 30A outlet should also be replaced by a 15A outlet. This is all that is required if the wire from the supply to the outlet is 10, 12, or 14 guage. The existing wire should be 10 guage wire to handle the 30A and there will be no problem in the same wire providing the 15A.
Yes, but you will only get one quarter of the wattage from the heater.
You might be able to plug in a 240V American oven range into a European outlet depending on the type of plug. SomeÊAmerican high-powered appliancesÊhave 3 or 4 pins, which may require adapters to plug into European outlets.
NO, unless you get a converter that converts 220 to 110.
You better call an electrician.
No. You'll need an adapter that can change voltage.
You cannot use 2-120v outlets to power a 240v dryer. You can convert a 240v dryer outlet to power 2-120v outlets if they are supplied with a neutral. This requires a competent electrician. Do not do this yourself.
Yes. Generally 240V is actually 220V when it reaches a wall socket in any case: (DO NOT TRY AND RUN 110V EQUIPMENT ON 240V SUPPLY THOUGH)(from http://www.faqs.org/faqs/electrical-wiring/part1/section-14.html)
No, you will burn up the 115 volt appliance very quickly. <<>> The pin configuration of the 240 volt receptacle is different from a 120 volt pin configuration. This is a safety factor to prevent the wrong voltage being applied to the wrong devices.
If I understand your question, Can you run a 110 appliance off of a 220 volt outlet? You could by only using one leg of the 220. You may also consider changing the outlet. Put in a regular 110 outlet and capping off one leg of the 220 in the wall box. You still have a neutral and a ground to work with. I read this as the questioner doesn't want to modify the outlet. Check the voltage ratings on the device. Many electronic devices nowadays can havdle 120V or 240V as it is cheaper to manufacture one powersupply and sell it everywhere. If your device is rated for 240V, you can put a 240V plug on it. If it only says 120V, no dice. 240V will burn it up.
lamp go "POOF!" It may be very bright, but not for very long!
No. The device will only have half the voltage it needs and will not operate properly. Follow the ratings on the device. <<>> The pin configuration of the 240 volt receptacle is different from a 120 volt pin configuration.
