My dryer is not heating. I checked the safety switches, heater, etc and found them to be ok. One check I made surprised me: a voltage check on the incoming terminals found 120 vac on each side of neutral from both hot sides, but zero across where I expected 240vac. Both line fuses OK. Why???

  • Can you provide a link to the other question you're referencing? And model number of the dryer? – mmathis Sep 14 '17 at 17:02

    Sounds like you do not have both hot legs, only one. In other words your two hot legs are connected to the same leg in the panel (black or red). Is the dryer fed with a 2 pole breaker? – ArchonOSX Sep 14 '17 at 17:54
  • It is a fuse box, not breaker. Yes both fuses are not blown - checked with my ohm meter. – user75459 Sep 14 '17 at 17:58

    Can you provide photos of the wiring at the fusebox? – ThreePhaseEel Sep 14 '17 at 22:46
