I purchased a dryer from Sears: recently, which didn't work upon being connected. I performed a couple electrical checks (more on that in a moment), then called them up and told them that it was dead on arrival. They delivered another one, which also didn't work. I'm trying to figure out if the problem is electrical or just dead dryers.
Our box is a 3 wire, 30 amp 220/240VAC.
What I have tested with my multimeter (both at the outlet and at the dryer):
- Line1 to Line2: ~240V
- Line1 to Neutral: ~120V
- Line2 to Neutral: ~120V
- Neutral to Ground: 0V
