First, is this all the lights in the whole house flickering at once, or just some of them? And is the wiring coming in to the house from the pow...

Take off the cover in the ceiling where the light/fan is, and see how many cables, and how many wires each, are in that box. You need at least...
How are you determining that there are 2 hot and 2 neutral in the box? Because 2 separate hot circuits coming into a living room box would be rath...
It's unclear: are these 2 existing 3-way switches for this light? And in most locations, code would not allow you to run another branch line off...
Are they incandescent bulbs, or compact fluorescent lights inside a candelabra shape? CFL's often have a short delay before they illuminate.
"I would really like to try gettng some info on the proper way to wire this ceiling fan in." So when you order the new module, ask them to also ...
OK, then you need a minimum of #4 copper (or #2 aluminum). For this short a run, those will work fine. But 100A is a pretty small service nowad...
The key information that we need is the amperage of the master breaker in the electrical box for this trailer. Please look in the box for that, an...
Since it's a 220V compressor (like most AC's), there is no _other_ leg -- it is connected to both legs of the normal 110/220V single-phase supply.
One quick way to check this out is to switch the circuit breaker that keeps tripping with one of the other ones. If that stops it from trippin...
I don't know what you mean by 'splitting' the line. You woould just wire all 3 of the lights in parallel with the current one. Connect the bl...
Yes, you should be able to still use the switch. So you must have left the switch out when you rewired. There is probably a single cable, a 's...
Ignore the voltmeter -- they generally give inaccurate readings unless it's a powered circuit with a working load. The circuit probably runs f...
My brother does this for a utility. There is equipment, but it is rather expensive, and therefore, not normally rented out (plus it takes training...
I don't know how to do a diagram, but the wiring is simple. From the incoming power cable, the black wire connects to one side of the dimmer s...
Just make sure the connections you are placing the aluminum wires into are rated for both copper & aluminum wires. They will be marked with "A...
The 2 incoming wires to the switches should probably NOT be connected together, unless they both go back to the same breaker in the panel. If ...
Basically, bring the power from the breaker on a 14-2 cable into the box where you want to control both the fan and the light both. In that box you...
Lots of people carry them. Search Google for brand names Kill-A-Watt or Watts-Up and you will find local suppliers.
Dimming depends on the efficiency of the dimmer used. None are completely efficient, so dimming it to 50% will probably still use roughly 75% of t...
