I have a fuse box in my apartment. I need a 220 line for my dryer. Is there anyway to add a 220 to the existing 110 line, without converting to a breaker box?
If you have a fuse panel, they are obsolete, and for liability and safety reasons, no licensed electrician would recommend adding to this fuse panel. The panel should be changed out to a breaker box.
Per the current code, you cannot add a 220 line to the existing 110 line with an obsolete fuse box. Just for the record, some of the older fuse boxes had the ability to do this only if it had an "empty fuse pull out", along with a few other technical terms that an electrician would have to check for, however no licensed electrician would do that today because it is not cost effective and not safe.
