First, thanks to hints that were right on from people on this forum a couple months ago I was able to fix a dryer problem, but now for my new problem.
I just bought a tanning bed (commercial SunTana SunSystem) from an individual who used it at home since it was new 10 years ago. About all the previous owner could tell me is that it was wired directly into a box in the wall with two 120 volt lines (Black and white), and one ground (green). They had someone run a special line to it years ago.
Well, to hook it up at my house, I spliced a wire (#10 X 2 plus ground) from my dryer line (#10, 2 X 120 plus ground, 30 amp breaker) for power, but the bed won't turn on. The breaker is OK, and the dryer still works too. Also, after hooking the bed up I went to the other end of the house and flipped the breaker on, and I thought I heard a pop about 10 seconds later from the end of the house where the bed is. Not sure if I was imagining that though.
Some of my questions are, was it a good idea to splice off of the dryer line for power? How have others hooked up tanning beds? Any suggestions on what might be wrong?
Some more info ... I'm sure I've tried to turn the machine on correctly, but I'll keep looking into that. I'll check for certain to see if I'm getting power to the bed after I post this. I don't have a manual for the bed, unfortunately. The wires from the bed are #10, black, white and green.
Thanks in advance for any help.
