10 Cleaver Using 12 Gauge Wire With 15, Breaker Galleries - Inside the case of the dryer circuit, there's one 10/three nm cord, with the recent black connected to one of the facets of the tandem breaker and the hot red attached to the alternative facet. The neutral is connected to the impartial bar. Within the water heater case, there is a ten/2, with both the white and black attached to their respective aspects of the tandem breaker.
Changed to fit to new furnished data. Fast petey's solution includes the circuit breaker you need to put in to accurate the state of affairs. As you may see from the breaker inter-ties, they essentially take two of those breakers and manually finish off what the installer changed into trying to do in a secure way.
It sounds like you may be flawed as to how that is stressed, or that possibly i'm simply no longer information your clarification. As others have stated, it is not feasible to get 240 volts from a single pole in a one hundred twenty/240v break up section machine. Each tandem breaker gives 2 120 v circuits, that is authentic. However, in case you measure between the terminals on a unmarried tandem breaker, you'll get 0 volts. This is because the terminals are each powered from the same leg, and so are at the equal voltage capacity. If you degree from a terminal on the pinnacle tandem breaker to a terminal on the lowest one, then you may degree 240 volts. This is because every breaker is hooked up to a different leg, which might be every one 1/2 of a 240 volt circuit.
Note how the internal handles are tied together, and that the outer handles also are tied to each other. This manner if either journey (or are became off by way of the consumer), the entire circuit is close off.
I've read that tandem breakers can be set up to both feed strength from one leg of the bus bar or from two extraordinary legs. If it is the latter on your case, then you definately'd be getting 240v after all. Check the terminals of the breakers in query (or test at the outlets where your home equipment are plugged in) with a voltmeter, if you haven't already, and confirm what is really being fed in your home equipment.
