Electrical issue at disconnect

I'm either getting no voltage or really high voltage at the disconnect, it's never the same. Once in awhile I get the proper voltage. I replaced and tested the circuit breaker and it has the proper voltage. So I'm not sure if my issue is the disconnect itself or between there and the breaker. The wires are all tight going into the disconnect. One of the prongs on the pull out is really chewed up also.

Welcome to the forums.

I suspect a meter problem. if there was a neutral involved....... I'd say it was a neutral problem. However..... you are working with an A/C condenser that doesn't require a neutral. That means you should measure 240v.... never higher than that.

Your disconnect has two wires in and two wires out. You should measure the in and out wires with the disconnect pull-out in place.
