No, remove the cord from the dryer and replace it with a three wire cord, this is allowed for homes equipped with the old three wire circuits. The manual that came with the dryer should explain this procedure.
The best thing to do would be to replace the outlet with a four prong outlet. That way you get a separate equipment ground which is required by the newest code. Otherwise you could replace the cord on the dryer with a 3 prong cord, and connect the ground and neutral together in the dryer, but this is no longer recommended.
in a power outlet
Yes - a hair-dryer rated at 120 volts will work in a 110 volt outlet.
Have the outlet changed to match the configuration of the dryer plug.
The 4 prong stove outlet has 3 straight blades and a ground, and is rated for 50 amps. A dryer outlet has 2 straight blades for the hot conductors, and an L shaped blade for the neutral conductor, and a ground. The dryer outlet is only rated for 30 amps. A dryer male plug will not fit into a stove outlet, nor will a stove male plug with a dryer outlet. Note that although the stove plug is rated for 50 amps, the stove circuit is typically protected (fused) at 40 amps.
Stoves are usually 50 amp,whereas dryers are 30 amp. A dryer outlet is not heavy enough gauge.
A gas dryer burns gas to provide the heat needed to dry clothes. As it only needs a relatively small amount of electrical power to drive its motor, and maybe also a timer, the electrical socket outlet which a gas dryer plugs into need not be much different to a normal wall socket outlet. Any electric dryer uses a high-power electric heater, which takes a lot more current than is available from a normal socket outlet, so a special dryer socket outlet is needed to power an electric dryer safely.As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.Before you do any work yourself,on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.
Because a toaster does not pull near the current that a cloths dryer does.
