Start Strap on hookup

Strap on hookup

The breaker used must be a dual (double) 30 amp 220v breaker.

Note: All new dryer circuit/receptacle installations must be grounded, which means you would be using a 4 wire dryer cord with a new circuit install.

A breaker can be installed without physically touching the bus lugs.

To be even safer you can switch the main breaker off to de-activate the panel which installing the breaker, use a second person to help with a flashlight if needed.

The bare wire should also be grounded to the electrical box (if metallic).
