    Is the device you need 120v for, all low voltage device?
    Or is there a LV power supply built in?

    I thought MAINS type voltages were not an allowable subject on this site...

    Only LED to mains and transformer-less power supplies are restricted mains topics.

    I built the power supply into the unit. what I need to do is convert the top of my stove top burner into a 115volt outlet to run well let's call it "project i" an invention that I have been working on... Like I previously stated it's just a fun project I know safety is key so please have fun with this thread.

    So if all you need for load is a standard 120v 15a outlet then the preceding posts cover it.

    stove block.png The burner on your stove is not a 115 volt. Why not come off where the cord hooks up but there still a big problem there too. Your not going to have a supply that's safe because of the wire and breaker size of the stove
    you'll need a fuse too. Id just plug into the wall outlet and forget the stove.
