Replace Outlet ??
 
I have a single outlet 20A 125V 3 Wire (Red/White/Black) receptical in my kitchen, that one receptical is on a dual 30A breaker. I'm not real sure what I should do with this outlet, or what purpose it could serve as I have never dealt with one. Any help would be greatly appreciated, This whole electrical system in this house has driven me crazy since I bought it .:furious:

What was it used for before? What size wire is it?

probably was used for electric stove/oven combo.

Best of luck, rredogg

I would pull that thing out, inspect the wiring,install new outlet, and put right breaker in.

Then just put a double pole 20 amp breaker in if it is 10 awg.
Can you take a picture of it?
