Electrical Repair

We had a customer call for an electrician in Mays Landing New Jersey. They contacted us about an issue they were having when the electric dryer and electric stove turned on it would shut off a single circuit breaker. When we did a diagnosis we found that the previous owner had connected some wiring from the electrical stove receptacle to the dryer. According to the NEC code electric stoves and electric dryers need their own dedicated circuits.


After removing the electrical wiring, we installed a dedicated circuit for the electric dryer. Wire Wiz Electrician Services got the dryer up and running in a day and in no time they were doing their laundry safely.

More About Electric Dryers

There are two types of dryers that homeowners purchase for their home. One type is the gas dryer; the gas dryer utilizes both gas and electricity to operate. Typically the gas dryer uses 120 volts of electricity to operate. Now for the electric dryer it’s a whole different scenario. Typically an electric dryer uses 220 volts of electricity to operate and utilizes a lot more current compared to a gas dryer. Many people who move into a new place sometimes forget to check what type of electrical hook up they need to operate the dryer they have. Sometimes they also mistakenly purchase a new set of washer and dryers and neglect what it will take to hook up these newly purchased appliances safely. Some homeowners after finding out they purchased the wrong appliance even try to rewire the existing wiring to fit the needs of the new appliance. This is when it can become dangerous trying to rewire a 120 volt receptacle to a 220 volt receptacle can lead to many issues. There might not be enough wiring or wires to fit the need of the new dryer. So many homeowners try to utilize the grounding wire to become a current carrying conductor or wire. Always remember not using the grounding wire for grounding can lead to electrical shock. Another danger when trying to rewire a 120 volt receptacle to a 220 volt receptacle, is not taking into consideration the size of the existing wiring. 220 volt dryers typically use a lot more current, this means that the size of the wiring for the 120 volt receptacle is not rated for the size wiring needed to operate the new 220 volt dryer. Also remember that a 120 volt receptacle is completely different than a 220 volt receptacle. When moving into a new place take a look at what type of electrical is needed to operate a dryer before purchasing a new one.
