No voltage on the LOAD terminals on this GE Model GEH-5886

The LINE terminals are the two outside ones, while the LOAD are the two inside ones.

Any thoughts?

No fuses?

Pull the handle and show us the insides.

I see an On OFF on the handle. Does pulling it and turning over turn it on?

Some of those can be a little finicky, make sure it is pushed in all the way. It appears that you have it the correct way, but you can try both ways. Also, make sure you have voltage on the line side to make sure you aren't chasing the wrong problem.

Unless it is mounted upside down then since ON is readable I would say it is on.
What about fuses inside?

220 on LINE, 120 between ground and each phase

we need a picture of the handle. If it was fusible the fuses would be in the handle. The contacts in the handle are going to be on side. When you plug handle back in make sure the contacts are down to make the connections.

Look at the clips that the "handle" slides into. The line clip on the extreme right is bent. It appears to be bent enough to explain why you don't have that phase.

Those connecters are not for outdoor use.
