Need some electrical help

Recommended Posts

I have no idea what I'm doing with house electrical first off but here is what I need.

I need this59f3c352e881de32c00371f4653471af.jpg to plug into 2dc62be33e41a4fb011b39ccdf053ea7.jpg.

Is this possible??? The outlet is my dryer outlet and the plug is my new 220v stickwelder

Without getting into to many details, you need to replace the 3 prong cord on your dryer to a new 4 prong cord, which will fit in that 4 prong outlet. Go to Homedepot and ask for a 30 amp dryer cord and you will have to wire it into the welder. Or get the outlet that matches the 3 prong and remove the 4 prong outlet. If you don't know how to wire maybe find someone who does so you do it right.

 

Older dryers use to be 3 prong and now will have to be 4 prong.

its looks like you will have to buy a plug to match that outlet it should work for you just get a three prong plug to match cause it doesn't seem to be wide enough. What is the amp rating on the mig welder?
