Henny Penny SCR-3 Rotisserie


Its a 208 volt unit.


The light bulbs inside have 208 volts going to them.


There is no neutral on the rotisserie, and the schematic shows the bulbs having 208 volts going to them.


The parts manual shows the bulbs as 120 volts and 150 watts.


The store has been using 120 volt bulbs since this thing was new and they say the bulbs last a long time.


Just a curosity question, how do 120 volt bulbs last when they have 208 volts going to them? One would think they would burn out all the time.
