We had a question regarding a dryer that turned on other loads when operated. Does anyone remember where it is located.
I am about to go on a service call where "the lights come on when the range is turned on".

Thanks

Sounds to me like one leg of the service or feeder is open. When the range or other 240V appliance is turned on it allows current to flow from the good leg to the bad leg.

Circuit only works when dryer is on

Is this the one you're looking for?

Thanks, caselec & Paul. That was it. And now I have a good starting point.
