Thanks for the info already given on the thread I high jacked --LOL-- sorry.
Okay here is what I have found out so far.
1. the power from the breaker that supplies the main power to the garage panel reads perfect 122 on each hot line.
2. The power at the garage panel reads 221 on the top 120 volt line and about 15 on the bottom 120 volt line ( see picture below )
3. The lines run under grounds in electrical PVC ( the grey type ) and we had some foundation work done and I think they may have done something to it because it has worked fine for almost 30 years.
4. As you can see there is a green wire that is run separate for the neutral ground and also the three big wires two on the right are 120 volt each and the one on the left is the ground wire.
I think the green wire is bad because you all have said the neutral is loose or disconnected.
Why do the neutral and the common ground hook up in the same bus??
Looks like I will need to run a new green neutral wire first and see if that works. What do you all think?
If that doesn't work then I will need to run a whole new 240 romex neutral included.
Here is a picture of the box
Let me know what you all think.
