I have a 220v line that feeds my electric stove, the line is accessible via a junction box in the basement. The line is fed from the service panel and is protected via 4 30 amp "cartridge" fuses.
My question is this: Can I run a line from the existing junction box to a new 220v outlet for my electric dryer? (new outlet would be less than 15ft from junction) I know that technically the line can handle the load, and it "can" be done, I want to know is
- Is it legal in the state of Massachusetts to do such?
- will the (4) 30 amp cartridge fuses be adequate for the load? Original Cloth type wiring from service panel to the junction box exists, I would, of course, install appropriate wire for the dryer outlet.
All wires have been inspected by a licensed electrician and are in great condition. All I want to do is add a second 220v outlet to the circuit already in place for the stove.
