Quick outlet question
There are two circuits in the box, and they share a neutral wire. From what I read this seems to be OK, however if I understand correctly they need to be on a 240v (multiwire branch circuit?) double pole breaker? The breaker that controls one of the circuits is a 20 amp breaker with a single switch, lever, whatever you want to call it so I don't know if its a double pole 240v or if I am correct thinking it should be.
I'm going to change the box eventually because that thing is JAM packed with wires, guessing that's why it shorted out to begin with, but got it hooked back up because my wife is having company this weekend and the switch runs the garbage disposal and the outlet is for the kitchen appliances.
