Question: My husband moved our clothes dryer from the garage to inside our home. He used a wire that he had used to hook up his welding machine. The wire is black and very thick and heavy. The dryer turns off after it has been on for a while. It will restart but it will turn right back off. The dryer is new. We have it hooked up to a 30amp breaker. Could the wire we are using be too much for the dryer.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
