4me, there is no such thing as direct buried sheathed electrical cable. You must be talking about UF cable. Run the UF cable at the proper depth, p...
007, you didn't state what the wiring looked like that was in the box that the original light fixture hung from. Is it a steel box with bx cable en...
Tom, I sort of guess by your responses that you might be an electrician so I have a question for you. Anytime you have a customer request that yo...
Your GFI is most likely shot, but you have a ground fault somewhere between the GFI and the items that shut down when the GFI trips. Maybe the crit...
In my state they have concluded that the amount of repairs needed to accommodate the installation of 90 degree wiring for these fixtures is quite i...
Ron, If you could hold off on that total rewiring project for awhile I will get back to you regarding connecting that fixture to the existing she...

Ron, Disregard what you are reading on that fixture box. It does not mean that the wiring in the ceiling box has to be 90 degree rated. It is ul r...
Only if you have a neutral wire in the switch box. This wire will be found wirenutted and folded in the back of the box. If the switch box contains...
Forgot to mention. Do not under any circumstance connect your neutral from the receptacles to the ground. Under certain circumstances this will cre...
Sounds to me like a diy'r is responsible for that wiring. First of all #14 wire has never been allowed to be connected to a 20 amp circuit breaker ...
Before calling for service, check your drain line to make sure it is clear and the condensate is running freely to the drain. Also make sure that y...
Brian, The 20 amp circuit with the single receptacle is code compliant if it is a duplex receptacle. If it is actually a single receptacle (openin...
I do not recommend the rope lighting. As the individual lights burn out it looks awful and you have to replace the entire length. It also yellows. ...
