    I am retired, but Yes if I did install one it would have 2 legs or lines and a neutral. :)

    Well since you did quote my post " uh B?

    As for the phase leg used on single Phase I Have learned to ignore it.

    Thanks:Ronald

    Wait just a minute when you said sustain I thought you meant the circuit could stand a arc better than a 120 volt circuit.

    Then we are in agreement you are saying the 240 volts would do more...

    This is like comparing apples to oranges. In manufactured appliances and equipment if designed for a higher voltage it will pull less current than one designed for a lower voltage.

    No had nothing to do with the size or voltage of the heater. I was merly stating at double the voltage at 240
    volts as apposed to 120 volts the arc in the loose connection on the knob and tube...

    That old myth is mainly from the way a dual voltage motor works by paralling the windings for a lower voltage or putting them inseries for a higher voltage.

    Nothing to be upset about.

    Thanks, I am too guilty of saying something like that because I don't take the time to think
    them out is the reason I did not say much more.

    I said loose connection and I meant a arc fault. And current across a resistive load such as an electric heater
    doubles when you double the voltage.

    I did not say the EMF would be fire hazard,...

    When I first read this post, like a lot on here I was in favor of it.

    After more thought I changed my mind.

    What if some one in a older house with knob and tube wiring
    had a 240 volt 20 amp....

    I see something in this that makes no sense to me.

    The transformer is suppose to be 120/240 to 120/240.

    Ok' we can't drive the two 120 volt windings in parallel with 240
    volts Right?

    What...

    This is not a uncommon thing on services with a high voltage drop on their feeder.

    I understand your concern for safety. Like you said it could be a loose or open neutral.

    If its not going back on the utility neutral and on the ground that leaves nothing but a open neutral.

    I still don't see where everyone is assuming there is zero current on the load side of the neutral.

    And in your Diagrams you don't explain how we loose the 34 volts in the 208 example
    I guess you think that would be senseless though.
