From my experience, u will have to call some electric supply houses and ask them for it, sometimes u can order the older fuse holders.

more than likely u will have to to look at some salvage places for it, u can ask the supply houses if they know who would have it. it is something that u will just have to track down and if all that fails u will have to replace the box.

Grounds? or Grounded?

When I bought my house was not a brand new one. my wife said "well you know about everything No?" So I had to prove myself. Fixer up houses could be a pain in our Royale ****! but us man will say yes I can do it!. One of the problem I address right away in my new use home was the electrical wiring. Old houses need to be upgrade their electrical wiring including main fuse breakers boxes. I went to my local hardware and found different gadgets & devices to help us Doit Yourself people. For a few bucks i found this plug in device that will give me different light blinking tones when you encounter a faulty wiring or open ground. It works, I found some open ground in my wall outlets and fix them. Open ground can cause electrical failure in your wiring which could affect all your electronics and appliances. Take your time to check for open grounds wiring in your home you won't regreted.

Call your local electrician for your electrical needs. Don't be a fool to try to fix things without the right knowledge & experiance in such matters.

Three way switches

Three way switch wiring can sometimes get confusing. If you are wiring or replacing a 3 way switch, and it is not working quite right, you probably got a wire mixed up.
The proper way to wire the switches is to run a 4wire cable between the switches. That is black, white, red, green.
In all electrical installations, the green wires are interconnected and also pigtailed and connected to the metal wall boxes and to the green screws on switches, receptacles, or lights.
On the 3 way switches there are a pair of like colored screws, usually brass. These are for interconnecting the switches. The red and black of the 4 wire cable connect to these terminals at each switch.
The other wires are connected in different ways for differebnt situations. Look at these sketches for cases where the cables for the light and power are in separate wall boxes..

and for when the light and power cables are in the same wall box..

What to do if 30 amp fuse keeps blowing in main breaker box

A 30 amp circuit breaker or fuse is NOT a typical size used for the protection of convenience outlets & general lighting circuits, especially in a residential setting. In fact the National Electrical Code (NEC) prohibits anything larger than a 20 amp breaker to protect a #12 copper wire and and a 15 amp breaker to protect a #14 copper wire. These are the size wires used to supply nearly all outlet and lighting loads in a residence.

It's not clear to me from your question if this 30 amp breaker is a double pole type that is providing power to a second, smaller circuit breaker panel and these outlets are fed from it. This would be in line with what the NEC would allow and what I suspect is the situation. I'm only going to get into this a minimal amount as more information is needed for me to be able talk intelligently about it.

I would shut off the loads that are connected to the 30 amp breaker. If that is a panel, I would shut off all the circuit breakers in it, then turn onn the 30 amp breaker. If it trips, then there is a problem between the 30 amp breaker and the panel. You may have connected line cables to ground or neutral - and vice-versa.

Can you please explain in as much detail as possible what is connected to the 30 amp breaker? Is it a single pole (120 volts) or double pole (240 volts) circuit? What size wires are connect to the breaker terminal(s) What type of cable is connected to it? How many wires are in the cable assembly or pipes? What is the size of wires? If they feeds a second, smaller breaker panel, where do the wires terminate - into lugs on the top or bottom of the panel or terminals of a circuit breaker? What happened or changed to cause this circuit breaker to start tripping? Is this part of a new installation - and if so, was the wiring done by an electrician? Was the work inspected?

Please try to answer as many questions as possible. The more information you can provide will help me get you the best answer.

Three phase house wiring, i want diagram with electrical symbols

What kind of diagram are you looking for? Large business and warehouses have 3 Phase. I've not heard of a house. but let me know. Typically 110 comes out of one breaker and one neutral wire (and saftey ground is 3rd) 220 comes out of two hot leads and one neutral wire (single phase). 3 phase comes out of 3 hot leads and one neutral but is still 220 volt.

Hi, knocking off some plaster in my living room, my fuse box tripped, some numpty had buried bare cables under it, if i knock the switch back on, it pops and knocks off again, could it be a fuse problem ??

The problem is not in the fuse.
It only shows that's the fuse doing its job.
You have a short circuit my friend that's why your fuse tripped because it is guard to avoid further damaged to you and your property.

I've adviced you to look for a qualified electrician to locate the short circuit.
Once it was isolated by the electrician it will be back to normal again.

I'm putting a new adition on and am wiring it. I have two rooms with ceiling fixtures and seperate switches and will put them on the same circuit. The first room will be powered from the fuse box to the...

Hello There,

I would put the Switch's Independently for each fixture, thought wired together through the same wiring to the fusebox.

If one Switch is wired to another, they could both alternate for the same fixture, however, use them independently:
with the wires connected from the fuse box, to independent switches, but the switches are hooked up towards the fuse box. And then from the fuse box, to switches, and then to fixtures. :)
