There is no limit on the number of devices, just a limit on the amperage used by all the devices in total. For example, given that 20 Amp circ...
If you want to turn them on/off separately, you need 2 circuits for them. And a 4-way circuit means that you have 3 separate places where you wa...
Yes, you can usually convert plugin lights to a wired fixture. Basically. you jut cut the plug off and connect the 2 wires to the wires in the jun...
Yes, a normal 240 circuit breaker has to be a double one, taking up 2 slots in the box. (That's how it connects to 2 sides to get 240V.) If you...
Old stoves were wired with 3 wires: 2 hots and a neutral, which also served as the ground. The stove had a 3-connector plug, and inside the stove ...
I assume you're talking about flexible metal conduit and then pulling wires through it. BX has wires already permanently installed inside it. J...
Can't you split your light circuits, and put half of them on each of the transformers? That's a better way to do it anyway. Houses are normally...

First, I would ask why -- 400A seems a hell of a large service capacity. But here is what is basically required: 1. replace the wires comin...
Basics: 1. replace the wires coming into your box with once capable of carrying 200A. (Probably #00, if a short drop). This might require upgr...
If it's only in the outer insulation, with no damage to the individual black & white insulation around each wire, (and no copper wire visible), the...
Some possibilities to try 1) You mentioned the main breaker. Have you tried the individual breakers for the appropriate circuits? Switch them ...
This is what I understand about that, though I have never worked on Czech wiring. I think you have the incoming color code right: black (or br...
Before turning the breaker off, turn the light on and plug a table lamp into the receptacle, also turned on. When you come back from turning off t...
For a 50A load, you need #6 copper wire, if it's a distance of about 20 feet. If it's longer than that, you need to go up to a #4 copper.
