I'm installing a new 30 Amp 220V 1ph circuit for a table saw. I have a double pole breaker with 2 hots and a ground. The ground wire is continuous to the saw and grounded in the box.
My meter reads 110v hot to ground on both legs but 0 across the 2 hots and my saw won't start. I have power going to the magnetic starter but she won't fire up.
In the panel on the other side I have 3 220v circuits wired exactly the same and I get 220 across the hot legs on all three breakers and machines run fine on them.
I swapped out the offending breaker for a brand new one, same deal. I put a second double pole breaker on the same side of the panel I'm wiring and I get 110v hot to ground but again I get 0v across the hots.
I get 220 across the hots at the bus bar.
Can anyone tell me what is going on?
