Question about Hammering
We have a 220 dryer outlet that will only run the drum but not the heat. The multimeter shows 120 out of each slot individually but reads 0 when both positive slots are checked together. Shouldnt it read somewhere around 220? It may be possible that whoever wired the dryer outlet piggy backed another 110 line off of it (the same breaker switch turns off 2 110 outlets in the house). There was another dryer hooked up to the 220 about 6 months ago that worked at that time. Any ideas of what we could do besides call an electrician?
Ok start at the pannel is there a double breaker there
usually a 30 amp two pole breaker this is how a pannel works first breaker pulls 120 off of one side of pannel second breaker pulls off 120 off the other side of pannel if you look the buss bars you will see that they interchange from one side of the pannel to the other so at the breaker you are checking make sure you have 120 v on output of one half of breaker and 120 on second half of breaker when you use a volt meter put one side to gng the other side to wire comming out of breaker you should have 120 on both sides if not you have a bad or tripped breaker
