Subject: 220 to 110 outlet

Name: James
Question: I earlier asked about changing a 220 outlet to a 110 outlet. I neglected to mention that I have fuse box instead of breaker box. The professional who answered my previous question said to put the white wire on the "bar" when unhooking it at the fuse box. Is there a center bar on a fuse box? This is a two wire (white and black) 220 outlet. Thanks

Answer: Hi James,

You need an electrician to up grade your electrical service. I would not touch that on a fuse box personally. If you are still running off of a fuse box that is telling me you electrical service is at least 50 -60 years old. Mose electrical equipment is designed to function properly for about 30 to 40 years. You fuse box has out lived it's designed life and should be up graded.
