Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors

1 Answer

I've got 2 additions to my house; power to both went out last week. I have a tick tracer that I want to use to isolate which line from my panel goes to those additions (bathrooms) and is causing the dead bathrooms. none of the lines in my panel are labeled, so I'm not sure which line is feeding the bathrooms. how does the amprobe work? I'm using http://www.homedepot.com/Electrical-Electrical-Tools-Accessories/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xh8Zbmc2/R-100341451/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053 but not sure if that's even the right tool, althought the Home Depot guy said it would work. ??

If you have power out in parts of your house, look for a breaker or breakers that is/are tripped or if you have a fuse box, look there for blown fuse.

If no breakers are tripped, there is the possibility that you have a GFI in the circuit. Look for the GFI (google GFI if you dont know what im talking about) and reset it.

If an amp probe is what I think it is, it measures the amount of current going through a particular wire at a particular moment. If your power is OFF, or if you are not using any power on a particular line, the reading will be zero. I think you might be wasting your time with this tool.

If I misunderstood your question, please ask me again so I can try to answer again.

Thanks

I just wired my hot tub into my new house. And GFCI keeps tripping?


Still would go with Miswired.
if this is an auxiliary GFCI Spa Disconnect,
240 VAC, 50 Amp, then...
All of the following needs to be this way:
  • 4 wires from MAIN Circuit panel, into GFCI disconnect box, 2 hots, 1 Neutral, 1 ground
    • 2 hots go onto the disconnects Power Bus Bar for breaker
    • 1 white Nuetral goes to Isolated nuetral bus bar
    • 1 green Ground goes to ground lug directly on the box
  • 1 GFCI in the auxiliary disconnect box
    • The White Pigtail of the GFCI Breaker goes onto the Isolated Nuetral bus bar. There are now two wires there.
  • 4 wires come into box from Spa. (Unless the spa is Specifically a 3 Wire Connection Spa!)
    • 2 Hot/Line wires will go into the L1 & L2 lugs of the breaker respectively.
    • 1 White Nuetral Wire will go into breaker as well at the "Load Nuetral lug, usually marked as 'LN'.
      • It will NOT go on the Isolated Nuetral bus bar.
    • Green Ground wire will be connected to ground lug, 2 wires are now connected there.
  • Connections at spa will be respectively connected: the 2 hots on line 1 and line 2. White wire goes to Nuetralnd green ground will go to a Ground Lug, most likely to metal control box.
If it's not wired in this manner, it is wired WRONG.

10 year old Seiko Kinetic (model5M62-0B00) blue face. Last week stopped and after some shaking started again but seconds moved in 2 sec intervals for a few hours. Went OK for a week and again last night...


After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.

Not working at all. my washer was on working and i heard a big bang and my electrics went off, i turned everything back on and the washer started up again but then stopped and now will not work. when...


Hello,

The ticking that you hear is probably the timing motor for the dial.

Was the "bang" from outside the house? If so, then a transformer probably blew and hit your house with a power surge. Motor is likely damaged, and will need replacement.

If the bang was inside the house, the capacitor on the motor probably blew (unusual failure mode though), and will need to be replaced, motor is likely damaged as well.
