allow less tha...

Saying it is allowed where you are does not help. It IS wrong, PERIOD, and to suggest otherwise

they are ...

If you ever have to run a snake in the drain pipe , the less abrupt bends / transitions , the

Very common , if the red and black are on opposite phases . The white / neutral only carries
the unbalance load between the 2 " hots " . On 120 / 240 VAC single phase service . Best I

You will need to ad least learn to raise the front cover ( " hood " ) of the inside unit to
remove and wash the filter . Do you still have water dripping from the condensate drain , if
you switch from...
Posted in thread: Open neutral or something else? on 05-27-2014 at 04:36 PM
? The current in a series circuit, i.e., -receptacle-switch-breaker- is the same.
:confused:Still, these may fail at a higher rate for other reasons, probably mechanical
wear.BTW, IMHO, I think God da...

If it is 3 phase 120/208 you can have 3 hots share one neutral . Very common in commercial
