Absolutely not. One 220 circuit, one receptacle only. The only remote possibility would be to connect the wiring from the dryer receptacle (if it’s got 4 wires – hot, hot, neutral AND ground) to a sub panel with 2 separate circuits feeding 1 receptacle each.

For 220, you have two hots and a ground. You can get 12-3 wire , which is a bit more expensive, but has two hots (one black, one red), a ground (unsheathed), and a neutral (white). You need 12-3 for the aforementioned case where you have an appliance requiring both 220 and 110 volts.

How do you wire a 220 outlet to the wall?

Get enough rigid metal conduit to run from the side of the breaker box to the hole you cut and attach it to your wall using conduit straps every 1–2 feet (30–61 cm). If the 220 line goes through the floor, then you must also install conduit through the floor.

How big of a wire do I need to extend a 220 V Line?

From there, since you have all four wires, you can extend it to the new location with the largest wirenuts you can get (rated for 2×6AWG), a length of 6/3 W/G NM cable, and a 3/4″ NM clamp (you can use the plastic button-style for this side).

Can a 220 volt line be run on a 110V panel?

Most houses, unless VERY old, have 220 volt run to the panel. Half the breakers run off 110V on one side of the 220, the other half on the other 110V side, and both use the common neutral. Also, not sure if you are talking justt adding a 220V circuit, or bringing 220 to a 110V services house.

What kind of wire do I need for a 220 outlet?
