Assuming that it is a correctly wired 4-prong outlet, for 30amp, you should be fine. But, to
ensure is okay, take a volt-meter and check your outlet for correct wiring which is according
to the NEMA o...

Okay, so I'm back after a hiatus (had to get the company $$ pipeline filled).Anyway, brewed
last weekend and got psyched about reviving this project since I do have all the parts. Hell,

The relay arrived today, so time to tinker.Sheesh, no wiring diagram for the relay. Damn,
something else to figure out (cryptic drawing on side of relay is murky).

Those "look" like 12 gage wires, but they could be 14's. You do have a couple options, but
selection of one will limit they other. For instance, if you go the 120V option, that limits

Breakers can be deceiving. A new breaker typically comes in a tripped (middle position). You
need to flip the breaker all the way in the off position, first (it will click). Then, throw it

Okay--- I can get some 12/3 awg and re-wire the power plug no problem.JRWell, if you can rewire
from the panel to the plug-in (or hard wire) location, you have lotsa options. May as well run

I checked, it's a 20amp breaker. The power cord to the heating element is wired right now with
14/3. The 20 amp breaker is one thing, but that 14/3 is (theoretically) the weak point. That is
14 gage w...

Ahhh, I was in the thought pattern of toggling back/forth the switch on DP.Based on your input
it would be: part #7266K43 which is a Spade-Terminal Relay DPDT, 12 DC Control Voltage via
