A few years ago when we had our service upgraded, two 30A breakers were provided in the new breaker panel for the drier, but the original wires were still routed to the old metal box with the 30A fuses. Now one of those fuses has blown, and part of the big on/off switch has broken.
As I see it, the fuses are no longer needed since we have breakers. What's the best way to eliminate the old box, and safely connect the 240V wires to the wires from the drier? Is there some sort of junction box that should be used? What exactly do I look for?
Thanks, Art Harris
