    If you provide a little more info, I can probably help you. Does the striplight have a wall plug on it or just wires? Do you want to add a switch into the striplight itself, or do you want to operate the striplight from a wall switch? If so, do you want to operate multiple striplights from the wall switch?

The strip light has two wires tor it's power, black and white. Feed a romex cable from it's location to the switch. At the light you connect color to color. At the switch you connect green/green, white/white, then the power black and the light black go on the two screw terminals on the switch.

How can I do a power recycle on an XBox 360 if it is locked away in a cupboard?

Good Evening,
I would consider putting a power strip with a toggle power switch at the base of the cupboard or behind if possible. Most power strips have mounting holes on the back so you can keep it looking nice and tidy while still being visible. The other option is to simply unplug the power from the wall plate when necessary to cycle power.

Happy Gaming!!

F9 error message during self cleaning

Dennis the F9 indicates the door lock switch has not positioned correctly. By what you are describing it sounds like the lock mechanism did not pull the door in tight for the cleaning resulting in the code. It's possible it could be a pinched wire on the locking mech. What needs to be done here is that someone has to examine the door lock mechanism to insure it's operating correctly. The door should be pulled tight and the switch sould be closed on the cam.

I have a Baumatic ISL94SS and want to replace the 4 hologeen G4 lights (20W)for Led G4 (2W).

These appear to be quite available:

While I don't have your Baumatic, I've replaced dozens of halogen and incandescent lamps with LEDS. I've also used LED striplights to replace fluorescent tubes.

Anyone know what the switch located under the kitchen cupboard located above the sink of a 1999 Citation camper is used for?

Hi Steve:
Some of my older campers had a separate 110 light available.

Have you tried the switch when the unit is plugged into outside power as well as when it's only on battery?

The switch in the cupboard is flashing on the Alarm setting , why is that ?

Usually most switches alarms are to indicate a fan has died.
And if you have it in a cupboard it may be overheating.

My Janome Model DC 3018 sewing machine keeps on sewing after I take my foot off the pedal, how do I stop this from happening?

Check that the pedal has not slipped back under your machine cupboard and is being pressed down continually by cupboard frame and not your foot.
Good Luck

It is probably activated by propane. Most fridge units on traitors are ran by propane. Set your pilot light. The casing unit should be located under the fridge area possibly in a cupboard. It also could be a electrical wiring problem.

How do you know if your oven is hard wired in or plugged in if can't see it?

The wiring should go to a cooker switch box...usually found at the back of an adjacent cupboard or on the wall. This will usually have a large red switch with a power indicator light and a standard switched socket.
On most installations of seperate oven and hob...the hob will be hard wired to the big red switch and the oven will be plugged in to the standard socket. So switch the socket off and see wether your oven is off...if the oven is connected to the big red switch instead then it must be hardwired...

Hi, I am installing a DHI645KAU I think it is. It is an under the cupboard slide our 60cm range anyway. It is going into a new kitchen. The electrician said I had to cut the lead off and run a line back to...

A domestic rangehood simply gets its supply from a power point in the cupboard above. A commercial rangehood would be on a designated circuit. The same wiring code covers Australia and NZ. Ignore him.
