Need illustration about putting an outlet in my crawlspace to plug-in and run a cable to the electrical box

I have 2 twin fan ventilators with a 3 prong 6 ft cord that I need to put in my crawlspace. What I would like to know is (1) "I need an illustration on how to put two (2) aluminum/steel/plastic square boxes to plug the two ventilators/fans into; and (2) How to run a cable from the two (2) boxes to the main electrical unit. Now, if I can get this part done, then I will call an electrical man to hook the cables to the electrical unit. This is so important to me as I had a man that used to do all my electrical work for me, but he is gone. I am not a well man but I am fast with my hands. *Here is some other information--Model: V2D; VOLTS: 115VAC; AMPS: .60MAX; HZ: 50/60; ANSl/UL...I hope to hear from you soon. Powers

How do I fix the electrical outlets in our family room? The room has 5 outlets, one of which works. The other four have no electricity. I replaced one outlet but that did not correct the problem


Check for any tripped breakers. Make sure a wall switch is not controlling any of them or that they are not on a GFCI circuit. If all OK, turn power off to outlet that works. Remove the covers from each outlet, and pull the outlets out of each box as far as you can, but leave the wires attached to the plug, making sure none of the wires contact any part of the box if its metal. Look at the wires attached at each outlet if they are not attached to the side screw terminals, but rather pushed into the back instead, note the way each is attached, then either cut them off as close to the plug as you can or pull them out of the back. Now reattach them in the correct place but put them on the screw terminals instead. Make sure all wires are secure. Turn on the power and carefully test each outlet for power. If they all work, turn off power, replace everything and your good. If still no power at any of them determine which outlet(s) have only one cable entering the box. The boxes with one cable will either be on its own circuit, or the last one in the run. The boxes with 2 at least 2 cables will be the middle of the run and one of those will be the one with the power supply for all of the others. If you don't have a signal tracer try locating tracing the wires from the 2 wired boxes in the basement, one of those wires is the feed and could be disconnected at a junction box or at the service panel.

My Tn111 timer is running hot with just a fan running


TN111 timer should not be hot.
All electrical devices generate heat, but the clock motor inside TN series is around 3Watts, and should put off same heat as 3 watt light bulb.
This timer is rated for inductive loads like a fan, up to 1/3 HP (horsepower). Some timers are incandescent only and are not rated for fans or HP loads.
1) Try plugging timer into different outlet and to different Load (light, fan)
2) Test outlet with cheap circuit analyzer from home center to make sure outlet is wired correctly.
3) This line of timers has limited 1 year warranty

The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?


If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

Need to get replacement electric fan motors for bathroom exhaust fans. 1-Model # F33HXCFJ-1187 and 1-Model # F33HXBME-903. Both made by Emerson 1/100 hp, 120 v


Hello

Using a stool positioned directly beneath the inoperative fan, grasp 2 opposite sides of the plastic fan cover and pull cover down 2 to 3 inches until wire holding clasps on each side are exposed.

Squeeze the 2 wires on each clasp together until the fan cover is released and set aside fan cover.

Locate fan electrical plug and unplug the connection from the electrical outlet.

Locate the screw securing the fan unit to the ceiling. This is often found directly adjacent the electrical outlet. Some fan models will have 2 securing screws. These will be located on opposite sides of the fan base.

Use flat-head screwdriver to remove securing screw, pull fan out of the fan well and set old fan aside.

Align replacement fan in position to allow electrical plug to be inserted in electrical socket and plug into electrical outlet.

Insert fan into ceiling well and secure by inserting and tightening securing screw(s).

Test fan by turning on wall switch. If fan fails to operate, check to be certain that the plug is fully inserted into the electrical outlet. If fan still does not operate, check circuit breaker and reset if necessary.

Replace fan cover by holding cover in place with 2 wire clasps just below the slots in the fan base. Squeeze the 2 wire ends of each clasp together and insert these into the the slots on opposite sides of the fan base. Once properly inserted, the ends of the wire claps will spring into place.

Push the fan cover up allowing the wire clasps to be fully inserted into the slots on the fan base, at which point the clasps will spring open securing the cover in place.

WHEN I PLUG IT IN THE SCREEN SHOWS THAT THERE IS NO VGA PLUGED IN. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THIS?


Please just follow the below steps fix your problem

1. Check for loose electrical and VGA cables. Remove the electric cord from the back of the monitor, then put it back in place. Remove the VGA cable from the computer and monitor and put it back in place. Make sure the connection is tight. If you're using a cable extender, remove it.

2. Plug the monitor's electric cord into a different outlet. If you're using a UPS or surge protector, plug it directly into a wall outlet.

3. Attach the monitor to a different computer. If the monitor still doesn't work, replace the monitor's cable. Make sure the cable is less than 5 feet long. If it still doesn't work, the monitor will need to be replaced or repaired. If it works with no problem on the other computer, troubleshoot your video card.
4. Unplug your computer from the monitor and power outlet. Remove the cover. Pull the video card out of the slot on the system board. Push it back into place. Be sure the connection is secure.

5. Put the CD that came with your video card into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Follow the directions to reinstall the video card drivers. Download a new version of the drivers from the manufacturer's website if necessary.

6. Right-click a blank area of your Desktop. Choose "Properties" from the display menu. Click the "Settings" tab. Try different screen resolutions to resolve the problem.

7. Determine whether the problem is caused by electrical interference. Electrical interference will make the monitor appear jumpy or wavy. Move any speakers, radios, fans or other items that can cause electrical interference away from the monitor.

Thanks.

I want to install a GFI outlet in a bathroom that only has a outlet in the light fixture? How do I run a wire from the switch which has 2 switches, one for the fan and one for the light above the med...


Make sure you turn off the power at the power panel.
If you are lucky you will find the following in the electrical box behind the light:
  1. A black wire that brings power from the fuse/breaker panel--connected directly to one or two other (black) wires (not to the light).
  2. A white wire from the panel--connected to one or more white wires including one to the light.
  3. A black or white (maybe taped black) wire that comes from the switch and is connected to the light.
  4. A green or bare wire connected to the box and maybe also to the light.
If this is the case then you can run a new cable to a new electrical box in the wall for the GFI. Connect the new black wire to the Line In terminal/black wire of the GFI outlet and to the group of black wires in (1) above. Connect the new white wire to the Neutral terminal/white wire of the GFI outlet and to the group of white wires in (2) above. Connect the new green/bare wire to the Ground terminal/green wire of the GFI outlet and to the original box or ground wire. If there is a Load/Feed through wire on the GFI outlet, tape the end of it and do not use.
If the black and white wires described in (1) and (2) above do not appear in the electrical box at the light then they are probably in the switch box and there will be only one black wire and one white wire that connect to the light on the wall. In that case you will need to run a new cable from the switch box to the new outlet. You will not be able to wire the new outlet from the existing electrical box at the light unless you do it through the switch and it will not be on unless the switch is on.

GFP outlet unit is plugged into in crawlspace


They have been known to get weak/faulty, at times & need replacing. Be sure you have proper voltage at receptacle, & good, heavy cable to it. Is there another receptacle you can try to see if it trips breaker?

Not a 3 wire cable


It's asking for a ground wire. Run a small wire from the green wire on the fan and ground it to the electrical box.

Installation of a Panasonic Fan FV-05VFL2...


If you are not very handy I don't think I'd tackle this project. There's going to be drywall cutting, backing to install, attic crawling, wiring, ducting to attach, proper insulating. As an electrician I've done this sort of thing in between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how smooth things go. If you find somebody you trust that's done it before who is willing do to it on the side for cash you're looking at $25-$60 for labor. Is it worth it to you?
