I have an electric fireplace with. Heater that uses an element with nichrome wire wrapped around 2 insulator plates it has 2 windings. One for low and 1 for high. When both windings have electricity that is HI. If only one is on then it is on low. There is a fan to blow the hot air out. This is basically a hair dryer.
Each element ( wire ) is 466 watts @ 110 volts. With both on it uses about 10 amps and gives off just under 1000 watts. I would like to get it ( nichrome element) rewound to use 220 volt. There buy saving cost as it will only use about 5 amps assumming it is still for 1000 watts.
Can someone provide info on nichrome wire and how to rewire this? I can not find any help.
