Needless to say I am not happy. In looking at the breaker box, the white and bare ground are inserted into the ground strip. And they were twisted together in the 30A receptacle.
This b box comes directly off the 100A service and NOT through the main panel.
What I am looking into is to add a 100A double throw breaker box from the service line in front of the 50A box, change the wire to 6/3 AWG and replace the receptacle to a 50A outlet to use as a 40A range circuit. I've got a 3 wire 50A range cord to go with it.
Does this sound safe and do I still twist the white and bare together at the outlet box? Thanks fellas.
Well, I am not at the location and AFAIR there was no panel info on the box.
After you guys asked more ? I am beginning to think that replacing this box with the new C-H box I have and putting in new 50A breakers and call it good.
Although, I'd like to have a means to shut this circuit down from the service line if need be. This line from there runs through the attic down through the eave.
