SOURCE: Wiring standard for Split AC 1.5 Ton

Hi,
The factor that you have not included here is the distance from the power panel to the unit...if it is too far then you need to up gauge the wire to compensate for that... that could be why the electrician wanted to go to the 720 ga. wire.

I see right now you are talking metric calculations so I am pointing you Click Here=> Wire Size Calculator I am not sure unless I did the conversion in metric. It is possible he is correct and trying to prevent harm or a fire. In the end of course the decision is yours. Here you can use you language and Math to come up with answers. With electricity always use the correct wire for amperage and distance. Please rate my solution after I have helped you resolve the problem and communicate with me. I am offering my help to you free.

SOURCE: I have purchased one Samsung

You have a LEAK from installation that must be found & repaired before any more GAS is added to the system.Then it will normaly need a little gas every 3 years.

Pool pump breaker tripping


1) Not likely the timer is problem, unless there was fire or overheating in timer box. Use nose and eyes to inspect for signs of high heat.

2) Eliminate timer as suspect:
Move wires on timer to test if timer relays have gone bad.
Move terminal 4 to terminal 3
Move terminal 2 to terminal 1
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

3) Check watt rating of Hayward pump, and voltage.
1Hp motor at 240Volt draws 8 amp, and can draw 6 to 8 times that amount when starting. Up to 100 feet, should be at least 12 gauge wire and double-pole 20 amp breaker. Over 100 feet, 10 gauge wire and 30 amp double-pole breaker is best.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html#motor

4) Intermatic T104 240V timer is rated 40 amps
Can safely handle 1 Hp motor without nearing heat-rating capacity of timer

5) Make sure the motor is wired correctly for 240Volts.
If motor is wired for 120, and 240 is applied, then tripped breaker can result.

Is a titan N120 54amp to much load on a 200 amp max circuit?


1) Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-household-electricity.html#stress
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

2) The answer depends on how much load you presently have on the 200 amp service.

3) Installation requires 1 double-pole circuit breaker
54 amps @ 240V = 12960 watts
One site recommends 60 amp breaker and 6 gauge wire.
Contrast national electric code says safe maximum for 60 amp breaker x 80% is 48 amps ... less than 54 amp maximum for N120 tankless
I recommend 70 amp breaker and 4 gauge wire so overheating is never problematic causing heat problems on busbar.

4) Amazon selling site says Warm climate and Incoming water temp above 65 degrees is recommended

I have a 125 FPE box currently the combined total of all breakers presently in the box is 190 amps. I am wanting to replace a single pole 20 with a single pole 40. Am I already maxed out or do I have room...


You can add the breaker.
The key is total electric use.
As long as total consumption does not exceed amps shown on main breaker, then the new 40A breaker installation is ok.
If total consumption exceeds main breaker, then the main breaker will start to get hot and then trip.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-a-subpanel.html

Put hand on main breaker and feel for warmth.
The main should not feel warm.
Consider upgrading to 150A or 200A service.

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

A o smith b854 motor schematic diagram 115v . How do I hook up 115v to the factory set 230v?


Remove the back of the pump housing ... inside you will find the 110 volt connection place.

If your pump is on a dedicated line (as it should be) run it on 220 VAC ... To convert your line from 110 to 220 all you need is a double pole breaker of the proper amperage ... take the white wire presently on the ground bus bar and put it on the other side of the new double pole breaker. Then you will have 220 ... and you will save a few bucks on electricity.

I have a Kenmore 300 series elect. dryer that keeps tripping 30 amp breaker. Have already changed breaker wiring going from box to dryer and installed new motor.


Check your load/AMP capacity.
If you have other electrical appliances on ie. Iron, Heater, toaster, Kettle these will contribute to the over loading problem.
Old homes sometimes only have 40-80 amp capacity

Problem wiring 240amp baseboard heaters


12 gauge wire sounds under sized for the application. And 20 amp 240 v breakers might be sufficient if you where wiring the heaters separately. But be sure that your wiring is not romex - because romex is an insulator and is not permitted in conduit. I would suggest that you up size your wire to 10 guage and your breaker to 30 amp as well. Then double check your heater wiring connections to insure that they're wired the same throughout.
