30 amp outlet on 50 amp breaker
 
I was wondering if it is possible to run a 30 amp outlet on a 50 amp breaker.i have a 50 amp breaker and want to extend a line thats already ran but the 50 amp outlet doesnt match the 240 plug i have.thanks for any help.

Yes, if you replace the 50 amp breaker with a 30 amp breaker.
