How should the FUSE panel be wired for a clothes dryer?
Clothes dryers use 110v (for timer, buzzer, etc.) and 240v (heating
element). So it has two hots (red and black) running to the dryer plug.
But at the FUSE panel, should it be two separate 20-amp fuses, or two
separate 30-amp fuses? Or should the dryer have a special double-fuse such
as a cartridge type fuse that is 30-amp?
I realize if this were a breaker panel it would just be a double 30 - but
how about with a FUSE panel?
I would have run two separate 20-amp fuses, but I was informed this is
incorrect and it should be 2x 30-amp fuses, and that it would be in series.
Can it be wired to 2x fuses, or must it be to a single cartridge type fuse?
