How Do I ....
Convert 220 Volts to 110 Volts

By Terry Peterman, the Internet Electrician

 

Q:  I would like to know if I can convert 220 volts to 110 volts without using a step down transformer?

A:  Short answer is: "yes", you can do this without a step down transformer.

To give you a specific answer I would have to know the exact application and the specific situation.  However, the most common example would be replacing an electric range or dryer to a natural gas unit that now only requires 120V power.

  • In the existing outlet box you would splice your bare ground wires together, splice the white wires together, and the black wire from the new 2-wire to one of the existing hot wires (red or black). 

  • Tape off or cap off the other unused hot wire with a wire nut. 

  • Install a blank cover plate on the existing range or dryer outlet box. 

  • In the main service panel, shut off the main breaker (after arranging for an alternate light source of course), remove the existing 2-pole larger amperage breaker, and install a single pole 15A breaker in it's place. 

  • Use a panel filler insert to plug the vacant hole in the panel cover.  You would then cap off the unused hot wire with a wire nut or tape, and connect the other ho...
