Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

The outlets are shaped differently for a range as opposed to a dryer so you must get a dryer power cord.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Unless you're sure the outlet is for a range in which case you can use a range power cord.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

That's a dryer outlet. You need a 3 prong dryer cord. You can't use a range cord for that outlet.

i am a appliance collector and am trying to creat a an outlet to test appliances using this dryer outlet as my base. any ideas?

You can just put the 3 prong dryer cord on all the different appliances (whether it's a dryer or range), and as long as you don't turn everything on at once on the range causing it to draw over 30 amps you should be fine.
