I have a 220volt dyer receptacle in my garage. I would like to change this to 2 110volt receptacles. All three wires are there 2 hot and a ground. How should I wire the new outlets. Any advice will help.

hello mike,
from your post im assuming that this is #10 wire, and in the box there is a black white and a bare wire. its not advisable 2 split this into 2 110v circuits since u will not have a ground, since u would have 2 use the bare as your nutural, and this will also be a 30 amp circuit. if u r needing 2 additional circuits in the garage remove the 30 amp 2 pole breaker and put in 2 20 amp single poles in its place. and pull in new #12/2 wire to the outlets, connect the black to the breaker and gold screw of outlet, white 2 the nutural bar and silver screw of outlet, and bare to the ground bar and green screw on outlet.
