Angry electrical problems

I have a shop that utilizes ceramic kilns running on 22oV one at 35 amps other at 60 amps. After using a different piece of equipment that caused a power drain ( motor on tool slowed and labored, and house eclectric IE lights dimmed). Since then My kilns do not work, I have a friend put meter on Plug and repoted power, But I wasnt present to ask how mant amps were available at that plug. MY Question then is, IS it possable to recieve power thru a circuit breaker But nor recive proper ampage ETC> Please help!!!!
Need to get shop up and runnin

a 220 volt circuit uses two hot lines you most likely lost one of hte two fuses or you have a bad connection that has failed.

When you test for voltage on a 220 volt circuit and if your kiln is calling for heat you will get 120 volt back feed from one hot energizing the second hot wire causing a false voltage test.

Read you voltage from line to line to make sure you have 240 volts not 120 volts back fed.

Let us know what you find

Good Luck
