  • 220 V electrical plug question

    Our local Veterans Post received a new deep fat fryer (220 volt) with a different type plug attached (shown in picture).. There are several 220 v outlets installed in the kitchen but none look like this.. (1) Is there an adaptor for this type of plug? (2) can an electrician install a different type of plug on the fryer? Just gathering information and what are possibilities before somebody takes it upon themselves to
    just go buy another unit ..

Check the fryer manual to see what the current draw or the wattage is. It might be simpler to just replace one of your existing 220V outlets with a matching one for this plug. You won't need a neutral; just the black, red, & green wires.
