Question about Electrical Supplies
Measure the voltage across the two hot leads. if it is at least 208 volts that is considered 240 volts. If it is not at least 208 then you are not connected to both phases at the breaker/fuse box assuming you have two phases in the box. With the cover off of the breaker panel, look near the top for two LARGE GUAGE cables. Eack will be connected to a seperate POWER BUSS. If that is what you find then when your wires are connected one each to a two pole Breaker you will have designated 240V power.

Testimonial: "granitledge and gbob59 hit it right on the head. I was using a thin double breaker and did not hit the second phase. Went with a full size breaker and it worked great. Thanks so much."
Sounds like a bad connection at the Main breaker box and the 220vac 30 amp breaker or more.
