Hi, I’m Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I’ll show you how I solve problems. Let’s make things better together.
Got sent to a job, which my guys did. Then they had a puzzlement as to why a breaker that looked like it was good and had very tight connections on the screws with the dryer plug itself. This is for dryer. It’s 220. It was only getting one leg, 110, instead of 2 110s. So we decided to replace that breaker which is a double pole 30. And when they pulled the breaker out, they found that on the side where you would normally see looseness and then arching, but where it connected to the panel itself, it pretty much…
“That piece was still on the breaker box.”
Yeah, it was stuck on to the metal that it goes to.
“Yes, it had to be, we had to get plyers to pull it off.”
So what I’m leading up to it, you might pull the breaker out to see if you have that issue. It’s rare that you might pull to break out to see. Okay, see you.
