Dryer Circuit Ext.

I want to extend a dryer circuit to the other side of a room. There is currently 10ga / 4-wire running from the panel to the recceptacle. Can I use a junction box to extend this wire to the new location or will this not be code compliant. The box will be accessible from the basement and I would be using 10ga/4-wire for the extension which would be an additional 12 feet.

Please advise...thanks

4 wire cable you are allowed to extend. 3 wire you are not allowed to extend.
You should be OK.

You will be running a "Cable" not a "wire".

"10/3" N-M Cable indentifies a cable with 3 insulated condutors ("wires") and a bare Equiptment Grounding Conductor.

Good Luck& Enjoy the Experience!!!!!!!!!!!
