I have puchased a comercial grade deep fryer with two small 115v, .75amp motors that requires a 120v, 4amp powersource. What is required to convert my 110 outlets in my home to 120v, 4amp outlets?

One more question, I need a recomendation on a generator to power this epuipment, uninterupted for 3 hrs. straight.

Thank You,
Todd

Nothing.

120V is a nominal voltage expected to fluxuate as much as 10% either way.

The receptacles in your home are either 15A or 20A and have plenty of ampacity to handle 4A.

Or...

A buck-n-boost transformer would do the trick, and one could use 5A cartridge fuses to come within 120% of the OCPD rating...

Another DIY liability concern?

Todd,

I think you may be confused with something here. Perhaps the manufacturer of the unit may be able to clear things up a bit for you.
