it is a 15 amp breaker. I think what I’ll do is pick up two 3000w 240v elements. It will be cheaper than getting an electrification in to run 10g wire and install a 30amp breaker.

That will leave me at 12.5amp going to the breaker on my weaker wire. I removed the thermal relay… they were converting to three phase power with it. The last owners were using one wire as two legs of the three phase.

Now to find the 3kw element for 240….
