Found this forum doing a toilet project and had a lot of questions answered for me. Great forum 1st post.

The original owner of my house was an electrician so I never thought about the wiring too much assuming everything was done right and good to go. I found this the other day and it just doesn't look right. In the laundry room is a junction box for the 220v lines for the dryer. Inside the box are also 110v lines to lights and outlets. The 110 lines are connected to the 220v via wire nut. This seems so wrong to me since the 110 lines have no way to trip a breaker in the event of something happening.

Is this set up wrong, or am I looking at it wrong. The dryer is gas just in case your wondering
