Excessive crackling noise on house phone.

I notice there is a green/white wire hanging loose in the Main BT Box. Should it be? I am trying to discover if this is why there is a problem with the noisy phone line. Please note that the main BT Test Line is working however once I plug phone in to ADSL Broadband box it is then that I have problems. My Broadband provider state it is not their fault and BT wish to charge me £200 for an engineer!
PLEASE HELP. Very much appreciated.

It sounds like you might have a problem with the filter, if you get noise once you plug into the ADSL box. Unless the ADSL box has a filter in it.

The ADSL box cannot be filtered but the phones must be filtered. Try another filter. You should be able to get one from the ADSL provider or buy one in a store or online.

The green white wire is the third pair ow wires. I am guessing that it is on your station wire side and is not in use. Try the filter first.

I have installed the Utilitech timer switch # 0141224 with all of the wires connected as they are explained in the installation packet. The timer works and turns on the lights, however it only turns on 4...

Utilitec is single-pole timer.
Wiring sounds correct. Lights will blink if timer white white is connected with timer red wire. Lights will not turn ON if timer red and timer black are reversed. Green to ground is not necessary for timer operation.
Check light bulbs are operational.

Bundle of white wires are neutral wires.
Timer white wire requires neutral connection to complete circuit to timer electronics.

If bulbs are good, it is likely that loose white wire is problem, since each of the outdoor lights also needs neutral wire to complete circuit.
Having 6 white wires connected together, plus stranded wire from timer, takes a large wire nut, and that many wires can have a wire fall loose without notice. You can solder wires together, or break the group apart under different wire nuts with a jumper wire between.

My Lutron dimmer/lights suddenly will not turn on. all electricity works throughout the house. The green light that usually is lit on the panel is not on either. any suggestions?

Indicator light is OFF.
Either dimmer stopped working or power to dimmer is off.
Check if electricity is present inside box.
Check nearby electrical plug to see if everything nearby has power.
Swap dimmer with regular switch and see if lights turn ON.
Check dimmer wires: if wires to dimmer are pushed into 'quick connect' holes on back of dimmer, these wires can get loose.
If dimmer is connected by wire nut, sometimes a wire can pull loose.
If no electricity is inside the box, and breaker is ON, then there is a loose wire inside one of the boxes on that circuit and electrician has to track back until loose wire is discovered.

Replacement parts for in-wall devices are not made.
If new dimmer is necessary, consider lighting factors:
Total wattage of lights. New dimmer has watt rating.
Type of lights. Dimmers specify florescent or tungsten (incandescent) or both.
Single-pole and 3-way. If two dimmers control same lights, one is control dimmer, other is companion dimmer.

Our Phone wiring is underground and the connector box on the outside of mthe house was done in1978. My problem is that I hit the wires and some of them were knocked loose from the terminal and now I don't...

green wires and red wires.......... that is line one. also solid blue and blue with a white stripe is also line one..... so tie the greens and blue w/white stripes together and tape off (if not screwed down to block), and do the same with the red wires tied together with the solid blues.

yellow and black is line two.....and so is solid orange and orange w/white stripe. then just fill in the blanks as stated above.
its simple, think of the wires as speaker wire in a way to simplify what you are looking at. multiple Pairs (+/-) wires color coded. if the wires came off of the screw down posts, just match up the colors like stated above on the posts and screw them back down.

Loose white and one black at bottom of dishwasher

the black wire is the HOT wire ... it should be connected to 120 volts AC .. the white wire should be connected to the neutral/return wire (also white) ... the incoming AC line shoiuld also include a bare ground wire .. that should be attached to a green grounding screw ... if your machine is already hooked up then there should not be any wires hanging down not connected .. you may be able to see the incoming wire but it should be covered by the dishwasher panels .. all connnections should be made inside a metal box that should be provided under the machine and there should be a strain relief fitting that keeps the wire from pulling out of the box .. ..

10-3 w/ ground wiring diagram

your 2 hots phase wires RED and BLACK need to go to the L1 and L2 terminals,the white goes to the "N" neutral terminal and green or green w/yellow stripe is case safety ground---now at the breaker the RED/BLACK are connected under each one of two screws on the breaker the white goes to the NEUTRAL BUS BAR on the palel surface where all the white wires are already, also the green goes to the neutral bus bar,this only applies if this is the MAIN house power panel, is you wire it to a sub box panel then the neutral must be isolated from the sub panel chassis and ground can still be connected to panels case

Does the blue wires connect to the black or white wires? I cannot find the instruction booklet. Thanks

Hi, At the fan you'll have a black wire, blue wire, green wire and white wire.
In the ceiling you'll have a black wire, a white wire, and a bare copper wire. If you are using the same wall switch to turn on all of the power to the fan AND the light, connect as follows:
White at ceiling to white from fan
Black at ceiling to black and blue together from fan.
Bare copper wire at ceiling to green wire from fan.

When connected like this, the main power is from the switch, and the fan and light may be set by the pull switches on the fan.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution... thanx!
