2022-01-05 Electric Dryer And 240 VAC Line

From my reply in FB group I Take Pictures…

Steve Spence
Said, “your electric stove, water heater, and dryer use the full 240.”

I don’t *have* any of those appliances; they’re all natural gas.

My coworker asked me to fix her electric dryer that she had just had installed. She said the dryer ran but didn’t get hot. I checked the line voltage and the outlet had 120 VAC from the two lines to neutral, but had zero VAC from line to line. I informed her that the electrician had wired up the outlet incorrectly. A competent electrician would have checked for that and it should never have “slipped through the cracks.”
