If there is no indication in the user manual or any spec listing it may not. Most of the time the power supplies used are for the full range of voltages available. It will not damage it to try. Get a power adapter instead of chopping the wire and putting on a new plug. If this does not work, buy a step up transformer 120VAC to 220VAC. Make sure the transformer is rated to at least 30% or greater for the wattage specs. If not the transformer can run too hot.

What do i have to do to plug my 110 air conditioner into where my 220 window unit


You need a step down transformer, to convert 220V to 110V. You can't just plug the 110V A/C unit in directly unless it is clearly marked as being suitable for multi-voltage supply (110V - 220V input).

Such a transformer has to be of sufficient capacity to handle the current, or wattage, that will be required. The Frigidaire unit in your question is a 3.5 kW cooling capacity, so the transformer would need to be about the same, ie for a 10A supply at least. They are quite big boxes, about $120.

You would put this in the roof or in a cupboard.

I have a coleman powermate 6250 generator with a 4prong 220v female plug on the power panel. My travel trailer has a 3 prong male plug. How can I convert my generator or is there an adapter that I can...


You do not want to convert anything to a 220 v connection !!!! Your RV is 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC.
Use a 30amp female to 15 amp male adapter to plug in to regular household receptacle on generator. Available at hardware store and RV stores.

I think it's more likely to be the colour setting. The TV is likely to be NTSC and the DVD player PAL. If the DVD has settings for the TV try switching to NTSC if it is on PAL. Or if The TV has settings to change the colour try that.

Power cable problem for SHARP AQUOS TV 42 inch


The voltage rating of the cable is not a problem. For all home appliances, including TV sets, the voltage rating of the power cable is supposed to be up in the 600 Volt to 1000 Volt range depending on the particular manufacture of the cable. This is not an issue. I have never seen a home appliance that could handle more than 240 VAC.

As for the Amperage rating of cable, it is more than adequate for the appliance that the cable is sold for. The 220 Volt appliances use about 1/2 the amperage that their equivelent 120 Volt appliances use. This is because the wattage for the power consumption is normaly constant.

The power cable is not a factor here. If the power supply in the TV can take the 220 VAC, and the 50 Hz power line frequency then there are no problems from that point.

Need power cable for SHARP LCD TV to use in Turkey


It is not the power cord that makes the rating of the power supply. You can use a transformer, and not a solid state converter to lower the 220 V to 120 V.

What you will find if this is a North American TV set, it may not work in other countries due to the standards for TV broadcast.

If the set is rated for PAL, this will only work with the video inputs, and not the tuner. The tuner frequency allocation and the video and audio carriers are also different between the some of the different countries.

Does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?


If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.
