You can run wiring from the light controlled by the switch to the lights you want to install on the cabinet. This is the easiest solution.

Hello. Here is a great weekend project that anyone can succeed with. Under cabinet lighting is such an enhancement to the function and cheerfulness of your kitchen. My most recent experience with this was very successful. The kitchen really needed the extra light and, the home owner let me choose the fixtures. I selected Utilitech line Voltage Xenon Lights from Lowes. These units come in three lengths, 12", 18" and 24". They can operate alone or in groups, they use 110 volts and no transformers, and they have a high/lo/off dimmer switch built in. Finally, they can be installed using the enclosed plug-in cords, or direct wired, and you can link up to 600 watts. A twelve inch bar is 40 watts.

All of that said, all you need to proceed is about 45 minutes per cabinet, and the following tools: electric drill and a set of wood flat drill bits, flat head screwdriver, philips screwdriver, wire cutters, wire strippers, pliers, safety glasses and a small mirror. The mirror will assist you in tightening the screws as you install the fixtures under the cabinets. Turn off the power at the breaker for the circuit you are working on [unless of course you are going to use the plug in cords included in the box instead of direct wiring].

VERY USEFUL TIP: probably the most difficult part of this task could be mounting each of the light bars uniformly under the cabinets. Recognizing this, I made a template for each of the three lengths of fixture so that I knew exactly where to predrill and start the two mounting screws required per fixture. These templates were made from still cardboard, cut with a razor blade knife, although you could have used 1/4 inch plywood just as well.

We purchased a slide in range, Frigidaire fggs3045kf. We want to put a granite countertop and use tile on the floor. When we raise the heighth of the range to make room for the tile, the ridge of the...


Hello Mkoffice, this a very common problem when floors are installed in front of cabinets and not underthe cabinets. it also causes a problem for the dishwasher. it will become trapped or cant be installed.If you dont want to removed cabinets to install the tile. you will need to raise the cabinet height. my shop has run into this before. We add 1 inch tall strips of wood across the entire front edge of the cabinets. the same is done to the back wall and any area where two cabinets sides meet. we dont use full sheet of ply wood because the granite installers will need access into the top of the cabinets to level the counters. The wood type should match the cabinet.( at least in the front) it will have to be stained or painted.
Hope this helps

How do you install an over the range micro-wave, i can't seem to figure out how to insert the micro wave onto the bracket on the wall.I'm having trouble with the clearance from the cabinets above .


Use the template that came with the microwave to insure proper height of the wall bracket. If height is correct and you have drilled the three holes in the top cabinet, (one for power cord two for mounting bolts), the unit must be tipped forward (front lower than back) so the bottom can be hooked to the wall bracket. Once hooked, start the power cord throught he hole into the upper cabinet and the unit can be tilted upward to allow you to start the bolts that support the front of the unit. It is nice to have help with the weight of the microwave. If attempting alone, make sure that everything is within reach when you start and if possible pull the range and move it aside. Good luck.

My tenant was complaining taht he was getting a shock when he touched a Leviton 104-05611-2WS 15A Decora Single Pole switch for a bedroom closet. My problem is I now cannot figure out how to reconnect the...


The three black wire are as follows: One is the hot wire. One feeds the closet light. One feeds the lights for the kithen and bath. Turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse panel and disconnect all three black wires and be sure they aren't touching anything. Turn the power back on and using a test light or meter determine which black wire is live. Turn the power back off and mark the hot wire with a pen, marker, or piece of electrical tape. Connect the wire you marked with a wire nut to one of the other two black wires. Turn the power back on. If the closet light comes on, that is the wire that you want to connect to one of the terminals of the switch. If the lights in the kitchen and bath now work, leave these wires connected together and connect the third wire to one of the switch terminals. Turn the power back off. While the hot wire and the wire for the kitchen might have both connected to the switch terminal, this is no longer allowed by code. Instead take another piece of wire of the same type and connect it to the hot wire and the kitchen wire with the wire nut and connect the other end to the other switch terminal. There should be a green ground screw terminal attached to the metal frame of the switch. Using a green or bare copper wire connect this to the ground wires in the switch box. Reinstall the switch and turn the power back on. Everything should be good now. If the fuse blows or the breaker trips, replace the switch.

How to make a panel, install it and a handle for Kitchen Aid model KUDU03FTPA panel ready dishwasher


Hello babies5 what it means by panel ready is a cabinet door style front to match the cabinets. I have installed many of these panels, however they where always supplied by the cabinet shop who built the cabinets. As to handle, that also always matched the cabinet pulls on the rest of the kitchen. The idea of this unit is to hide the dishwasher. In my kitchen, simple doors, so I would use 3/4 inch plywood and paint it white with the same pulls as my current doors and drawers have.
