I saw this at harbor freight the other day. I might go back with my 20% coupon and try it out.

I use mine to monitor KWH to get an idea of the cost to run an appliance. It's also handy to check Power Factor.

Tools, Equipment & Other Products / P3 P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor

Just ordered myself a P3 P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor from Amazon tonight.

A few months ago there was some talk in our private tech-only forum about using a Watt meter to check a refrigerators defrost system.
http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=14578.msg76618#msg76618

I thought about ordering one back then but never did.

The last few days though I have been shopping around for a small generator and they all seem to be rated in watts.

Living in town we are not without power that often and when we are it's just for a short time, but in the last ten years two or three times we have been without power for hours to a few days. During them few times it would have been a life saver to be able to run my sump pump and refrigerator.

Searching online it seems sump pump watt ratings are all over the place, so I thought about this Watt meter again and decided to give one a try. Other then checking out a few sump pumps and maybe playing around with it on a few refrigerators I'm wondering what other practical things I could maybe use it for.

Being a gadget junkie kind of guy I'm really looking to getting my hands on this. Have not purchased any new gadgets in awhile.

Do you have a watt meter and if so what do you use it for?

Thanks, I'll check that out when we get to that point. Can that part be swapped out accessing it from inside the dishwasher chamber when the unit is installed, or is it normal to pull the dishwasher to get at those components from underneath?

You need at least a 6000 watt generator to run a dryer

The Chopper/Mascerator Blade within the Sump Assy (located at the center of the tub inside the DW) has been changed from part number (5832DD4001A) to (5832DD4001B)---to eliminate grinding/whirring noise that occurs during the *wash cycle*.

Got a generator with a 240v on it 30 amp on its own breaker and everything with a nema plug l14-30 to a 1900 box with a dryer plug in it. Runs the dryer on no heat but when i turn the dryer to heat it trips the generator breaker.  Does anyone know what i can do to test the dryer off of the generator.
