OK, I just went and checked it again. I must have got mixed up plugging and unplugging the cord. My multimeter is definately set to measure V/AC.
From black to white or redt to white it's 120V.
Black to red is 245V. The receptacle does say 30A -125V/245V.
So i'm going to go back at it when I get out of work today to recheck the thermostats and fuses and heater coils.
In an earlier post you mentioned to make sure I unplug the wires going to each component before I check them. Should I unplug both wires or just one? And as long as I get any reading other than O.L. then that means there should be continuity and the component is working, correct?
I really do appreciate your help!
