Thread: test cord for dryer timer

  1. #1

    Default test cord for dryer timer

    I have seen a test cord made up for a dryer timer. This cord is 110 volts. Would I be correct in assuming a test cord for a 220/240 volt timer should be 220/240 volts?

    Yes it would....most timer "motors" are 110-120 volts AC but there are some 220-240 volt AC timer "motors" now. Have to read the voltage on the timer motor itself to be safe.

    Yep, I have come across a couple with brown wires that show to be 220.

    Still can't figure the reasoning for this.

    Instead of useing an resistor to cut the 220 volts down to 110 volts during the auto cycles, they would send 220 volts directly to a timer motor that is 220 volts AC.
