Electrical Outlet Tests Okay But Does Not Work What Is The Type Of Electrical Meter To Test If A 220 Outlet Is Functional?

What is the type of electrical meter to test if a 220 outlet is functional? - electrical outlet tests okay but does not work

My dryer suddenly stopped working and I have some electrical problems in the house ... but I have no idea if the dryer is in itself, which is broken or if the leave to. I checked the fuse and it is very good.

If you can see if it can be the current flowing into the electrical outlet 220 V, on a local DIY store and get a neon simple electrical tester for a few dollars to what job. If you have something better to be a good Milliameter Volt Ohm (VOM), which costs about $ 25 - $ 30 Radio Shack. You can stress testing, resistance testing, continuity test, etc.

A cheaper way to do that is get a portable device like a hair dryer and plug it into an outlet that well you know. Then connect it to a suspect. If it works, is not bad.

If you check the voltage on the container, make sure both legs trying to go (2 holes each container 110 volts) must be the container to be 3 or 4 holes. If you have 3 proof of both which are oriented in the same manner and must be read 220V. Sometimes, power switch on one side and only 110 (each leg supplies 110V, with 2 legs and ends with 220). If a leg has the power, you should start instead of switches to (follow) the manufacturer of the switch and current.

PS: If you have 4 holes, you only need 2 110 meters, the third is neutral and is on 4 floors.
