When converting from an electric downdraft cooktop to a gas downdraft cooktop can the 240V outlet be converted to 120V to run the fan without rewiring?

Yes it can. But leave this work to a qualified electrician. The consequences of doing this improperly range from failure of the cooktop to work, to damage to the cooktop, to an electrical fire, to injury or death due to electrocution. The hazards cannot be stated strongly enough.

This is a two part question. Can a 110v outlet be converted into a 220v outlet, yes it can. The other part of the question needs to be discussed.

240 v is dangerous and any rewiring should be done by an electrician who knows the regulations that are there to prevent electric shocks and fatalities..

It is possible to convert it to gas, but this isn't a job you want to do yourself as it is very dangerous and involves rewiring of the stove. Call several gas fitters to visit your home and get a quote on what they could do for you.

plug all wires together.

If there is an INPUT connection, YES. If not it would be possible but would require some rewiring by an expert.If there is an INPUT connection, YES. If not it would be possible but would require some rewiring by an expert.

If you have some coils of wire and a house that needs rewiring, an electrician is needed to complete the job. He/she would also know if the wire you have is the correct wire to use in the rewiring.

More cost effective to buy a new one.

What do you hope to achieve by rewiring them? Are they not working, or you want them to work differently, or???

dedicated memory is memory which is only connected to the GPU. changing shared memory to dedicated memory would involve rewiring the laptop, which would be far more expensive and far more effort than buying dozens of laptops with dedicated memory.

Rewiring an electronic fan to change the direction of the fan blade you should take the fan to an electrician. You can attempt to swap the black and red wire but any changes with wires can be dangerous and should be done by a professional.

Rewiring: 1. Obtain the existing documentation, electrical drawing. If you do not have, make one before attempting to rewire. 2. Note down the minute details of the existing drawings, terminal number etc 3. Note down the wire type, sizes. Carry out the rewiring. Modification: 1. Obtain the existing documentation, electrical drawing. If you do not have, make one before attempting to rewire. 2. Note down the minute details of the existing drawings, terminal number etc 3. Prepare a modified drawing, with terminal numbers etc. Carry out modification. Understand the functionality and ensure you have the same or modified functionality after rewiring or modification. Test the circuit before you hand over to the end user.

You could, but it would require a complete rewiring and use of the 1989 trans and electronics.

The equipment itself can not be converted as it would mean rewiring the motor to operate on 240 volts. The cost factor for a rewind would be too high. The amperage draw for this type of appliance is on the high side, so using a transformer is also out of the question because of the transformer's cost. If you do decide to use a transformer it will have to be sized to the Hoover wattage. Find the wattage of the equipment by multiplying its amps times 110. This will roughly give you the size transformer that you would need if you go that route.

Yes it can with rewiring the blue and green harness plug pins.

If you need to ask, you should have someone who knows how do it....

You need a dedicated circuit for that. You cannot power a 220V device off 110V.

User Avatar

Absolutely not. If you do this then there are several problems that will not trip the breaker, but will set fire to your house.

User Avatar

If a circuit is being changed, first make a modified drawing to fulfill the requirement. Once you have the correct modified drawing, get the wiring changed. test the circuit for safety and functionality to ensure what you have done is correct. Compare the modified drawing against the standards you followed.

Call your local building inspector. You will probably, because of what this building is, have to use Armored Cable, which has a metal jacket, to wire it.

If you get the colour chips in the right order the rest is so easy the M.I.High colours are red,Yellowblue and green that may help you when you come to rewiring the wires

User Avatar

you need a transformer (instead of rewiring) from 220v to 110v The above answer will work but it is not correct. All lighting fixtures installed in Canada have to be CSA certified. If you really like the design of the lamp then you could consider rewiring it with certified CSA components You can buy replacement lamp parts at any DIY outlet. Change out the lamp cord and plug end along with the lamp (bulb) holder and you will have a certified fixture.

The computer won't work properly if you do. The engine would be the simple/inexpensive part. The computer and rewiring would be cost prohibitive.
