Subject: Trouble Shooting 220 volts..

Have two hot leads plus a ground sticking out of a wall. Both leads read 110 volts to ground with a cheap tester. Have 220 volts when tested lead to lead. Problem is: the wires won't power a rated 220 volt wall heater/with fan. In the "on" positon I can manually spin the fan and it will slowly turn and the coils will put out a slight sign of heat. The unit works with known 220, I checked it.
What to do? What test do I use to trouble-shoot with. I have access to the electrical box but tracing wires could be a lot of work. Thanks
