I have purchased a used Kenmore Dryer model# 118.62922 100 that I need to use as a 120 volt appliance. How do I make the transition hook-up?

** Kenmore Dryer model 118.62922100 **

I can find no listing for such a model number and have never seen any Kenmore model number that started 118...

** I need to use as a 120 volt appliance. **

Most electric dryers' elements are 240 volts. You'll get very little heat out of one only connected to 120 volts. It would likely need to be replaced with a part designed for 120 volts (if there even is such a thing).

110.62922100 is a valid model number of a dryer built for Sears by Whirlpool. I'm afraid I do not know how you'd convert to operate on only 120 volts and get any reasonable amount of heat out of it. Sorry.

Now that you have the model number you could check with Sears or Whirlpool to see if they can tell you and also if there is a 120 volt element available as a replacement for the original 240 volt element.
