I hear what you are saying. Ranges and dryers are not supplying multiple loads through a load center. Not even close to being similar. You can help him do a hack job if you want, I just wanted to say what I said. And a simple call to the AHJ (local fire departments are good too) if there is one, will get the receptacle outlet brought into compliance in a commercial location pretty quickly in most areas. I won't be debating this with you. I said what I wanted to say. You guys go ahead and do whatever you want. :no:We have ranges and dryers all over the country wired this way, and while not ideal, this is a similar situation.
