I need to add a 240 volt circuit for a new appliance. I know the basics and how to stay safe around electricity. I've added outlets and replaced breakers in the past.

The appliance needs 20 amps and a NEMA 6-30R plug.

The only 6-30R outlet that the hardware store had in stock was 30 amps.

So got a 2 pole 30 amp breaker and already have some nm-b 10-2 wire. Only need to go 20 ft and will use white neutral as the second hot wire.

Anyone see any holes in this plan?
