Hi Becky. Welcome to Just Answer.

Most likely, the adapter you are looking for doesn't exist, unfortunately. The reason for this is because it could be dangerous to have adapters with ends on them that are rated for different amperages or voltages. What is the voltage of the circuit as it is currently configured?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think 110 I'm not sure.

Do you know which breaker in the panel feeds the circuit?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No
Expert:  Jason replied 11 months ago.

If you can find the breaker in the panel, we will be able to figure out whether it's currently configured for 110 or 220, based on whether it's a single pole or a double pole breaker.

That's okay. I am handicapped and cannot check right now. I appreciate your help and I will think of another avenue.
Thank you. Bye.
