Hello Paulcolletti,
I am not sure what you mean with your question.. Electric dryers typically use either 3 pole or 4 pole plugs that mate with the corresponding receptacle. If you already had an electric dryer there before, you need to make sure your power cord matches the receptacle. If it does not, most home goods stores ( like Home Depoit/ Lowes) and others carry the molded cord sets for that application and are reasonably easy to install. I fail to understand the low voltage versus high voltage comment as it pertains to a dryer. Please elaborate on this and maybe I can assist with a solution.. Good Luck...

Can anyone please tell me the best tenant screening service out there? I don't want complete screening services.....just the background reports and all; and don't even want to spend a lot?


'Not spending a lot' could cost you dearly. I read a great story in a magazine of a couple who went to live abroad for 2 years and left an agency to rent out there house. It was rented to a 'nice' man who said it was for his wife and son. What actually happened was that he added partition walls to various rooms and rented the house to 16 single students, some three to a room. The fire officer wasn't impressed.

Looks like the gate was broken after the tenant moved out as most vandalism occurs to vacant property and a broken gate would surely have been seen by anyone entering the property. No way to win this one. They did the inspections and recorded the findings.

Outside main 100 amp breaker is tripping but none of the inside breakers, supposedly when dryer and tv on together but not all the time


Am I to assume your dryer is electrical? If so, I'll guarentee it will draw MORE than 14 Amps if heating. Sorry, can't analyze your problem from here.

Real high or low voltage may cause a motor problem but this is easy to check with a voltmeter at the outlet. If they think it is a power problem there is no sense putting a motor in it until the problem is taken care of.
