    Subpanel from stove circuit

    My electrical instructor always made that his number one important point. Going into the electrical courses I had absolutely no concept of how residential electrical worked and could not even think about something as simple as changing a light switch because of the fear of electricity...

    Subpanel from stove circuit

    Many years ago I ran a line like that for my hot tub once. The only difference between now and when I did it is that I knew nothing about residential electrical. My friend showed me what I should buy wire/etc. I ran the line thru the basement and out the crawl space and up into the deck into the...

    Subpanel from stove circuit

    Hey Bud I hear you. I guess you were stating although did not specifically say it that this workshop is probably detached since the bury of conduit is needed. It is safe to assume that by the description but by Code we can not assume this and the reason I asked. Yes, more "juice" would indicate...

    Subpanel from stove circuit

    "Onion..." you have not specifically stated that this workshop structure is attached or detached from the house. There is a difference. I assumed it was attached according to your description in your first post. Is this attached or detached? If detached is there any other circuit feeding this...

    Subpanel from stove circuit

    . I don't see off the top of my head any code restriction with the concept only of "repurposing an existing circuit". If the conductors/wires are sufficient for the breaker rating or vise-versa then I don't think it will be a violation to repurpose this circuit to feed an attached structure...

    Outdoor power distribution box to outbuildings

    This is not a junction box it is called a "non-fused disconnect" <---link to it The specific disconnect in the picture is what this is. However, I don't know what rating you need and I don't know what the setup is like to tell you if this is the proper rated disconnect to use for your...

    Switch controlled outlets

    Rental property - not your property to make any changes to the electrical system at all.

    Switch controlled outlets

    . No longer works indicated it was working/controlling an outlet/s and no longer does so you replaced the switch. So this should not be affected by the tab on the receptacle as that has not be altered/changed. Since this is a pre-installation I would think the switch failed and possibly you...

    Disconnected Barn Sub Panel missing Ground?

    . You don't have the answer in your poll. Detached structure: Sub panel - do not bond neutral and ground together. Neutral must be isolated from ground. This goes for any sub panel no matter where it is located (attached or detached structure). Ground Rod - no, not just one. There are two...

    Anti-Arc Breakers

    . sparky617 - you're just interchanging the terms again and confusing some of the persons. You want a "dual function" not "combination" breaker for your panel if you are looking for one breaker to provide both AFCI and GFCI protection. Therefore the breaker you provided the link for provides...

    Dryer 220 wire

    I believe I mentioned that in my instructions.

    Anti-Arc Breakers

    . Just a heads up for you in case you were not aware of this. A breaker that has both AFCI and GFCI protection is a "dual function" breaker not "combo". I only say this because many AFCIs are marked CAFCI (combination AFCI) which in terms means it is only a AFCI breaker which protections in...

    Dryer 220 wire

    . You can keep the 10/3 you have already. Remove the existing metal box. Cut your existing 10/3 conductors back far enough from the burnt parts. Install a new junction box with the existing 10/3 moving the box closer in the direction of where the 10/3 is coming from to give you that extra slack...
