Reply to Joseph's Post: My problem is my outlet is a old 3 prong y looking this is for some farm equipment. And also it is coming from a screw in fuse box. When I wire it like I thought it should be it was only 110 put out.
Expert:  Inactive replied 6 years ago.
Ok - can you get some sort of a number off of the outlet? If not then does it look like any of the following:

Picture #2 is actually a 50amp plug. But at anyrate the wiring terminates to it the same way. Each "hot" leg will terminate to the gold terminals, and your ground will go to the green terminal.

But if you have this running off of “screw in type” fuse panel – and your only getting 110 out of your plug that means you either have the plug wired only to 110, or you blew one of your fuses thus rendering it 110v.

What you need to do is verify that you have both wires from the gold terminals to separate lugs on the fuse panel. If you have them on the same bus bar, it will be 110v not 220. Now if your able to take a picture of the fuse panel (internal wiring) and upload – I can tell you exactly where to terminate the wiring.
