    Your ">" sign was confusing when I first looked at your response. Thanks.

    Out of the circuit, the apparently overheated resistor is 440 ohms, the same as in circuit. It
    appears to be wire wound. It is about 1/4" diameter and 1.25" long.The resistance of the motor
    is close t...

    My 2008 Casablanca Ventura fan has died. The W32 wall switch works, but neither fan or light
    work. The RMM circuit board says RMM4. It has 2 power resistors. One says 8W3K and, in circuit,
    measures 4k...

  • Posted in thread: Hole in sheathing under vinyl siding at outside outlet on 08-17-2011 at 09:05 AM
    For these electricians, that is right. A few seconds of cutting would have saved me hours, and
    avoided the horrible air infiltration this house had before I got back to fixing this.Since
    then, I have ...

    I could not settle for the foam solution alone. The first picture is what I found after taking
    off one piece of siding. It shows how well someone's hammer works. The sheathing had vapor
    barrier on the...

  • Posted in thread: "Sloppy" valve needs turns to flow on 04-17-2011 at 07:04 PM
    The hot valve in one bathroom faucet requires 1 1/4 turns before the water starts to flow, and
    another 1/2 turn to get medium flow. The cold water valve gives good flow at 1/4 turn. I have
    had both ap...

    Is the kitchen tile floor really on a concrete slab? No framing and crawlspace under there?

  • Posted in thread: Underground Wire to Shed with Concrete Floor on 03-26-2011 at 09:24 PM
    I am starting to think about building an equipment shed with a concrete floor and expect to
    want to dig a trench to run electric wires. Would it be standard to assemble the conduit with
    an elbow to be...

  • Posted in thread: Outdoor underground wire on 03-26-2011 at 09:03 PM
    How should underground wire penetrate the house wall below ground? What I found was UF wire
    sealed in the composite concrete block heading out to the yard totally unprotected. I carefully
    dug it up an...

  • Posted in thread: Attic condensate drain-via walls? on 11-08-2010 at 07:29 PM
    I reconsidered combining the drain lines. I sent the heat pump condensate drain down through
    PVC in the interior wall, and separately the overflow pan drain out to the soffit (not the
    gutter any longe...
