I have a 220 (4 wire) line that I use to power an outdoor pump for my maple syrup.
The 220 at the pump works fine (I also spin off a 110 leg at the pump for some sensors).
The 4 wire goes into a box with a 3 wire 220 outlet and a 110 GFI that uses 1 220 leg, the white common and the ground.
I've tries 3 gfis and they all reset when I plug in my evaporator oven. If I plug the oven into one of my inhouse GFIs they do not reset. When I tested all the gfis outside, they all showed power in the outlet.

Is there a trick to taking a leg off the 220 that I don't know. I'm feeling quite dumb. I might just go to a regular duplex, but that worries me.

Thanks
Abbott
