1 Answer

I have an outside recepticle and got water in it. I now have no power to bathroom sockets and garage sockets. I turned off the main breaker thinking maybe it would reset but they still do not work. I do not know where the fuses are. When I open panel I just see the black parts that contraol the individual circuits. Can you shed some light on to speak!

Sounds like the breaker you need to find is a ground fault. It should have a white test button on it along with the breaker switch. You have to turn the breaker to the off position and then back on. It will not reset by just trying to turn it to the on position. If it still trips off after turning breaker off and then back on, you may have to check the outside receptacle or replace it. Water may still be in it, causing the breaker to trip.

Make extension 220 volt cord for 220 volt welder

most 220v welders have a NEMA 10-50 plug or the NEMA 6-50 plug--the input /output ratings thru recepticle and thru plug are same-configuration of plug prongs are different( Grainger Catalogue shows simularities and differences) main difference is AC Horsepower Ratings are different, and that applies Only on equipment that uses 3 phase, not your welder.Use an Ohmmeter to touch unpowered wire connection under shroud at ground and plug prong, then red power connection to corresponding plug prong, and again to black connection and plug prong,mark them w/ felt pen w/ corresponding colors (Green, Black Red). Change out wire plug to fit into dryer or stove recepticle, or make an extention adapter plug witch fits stove recepticle and extends out thru floor to carport and goes to 10-50 recepticle-whereas ground green goes to W position (Center) Y is Black and goes to Y Black, X is Red and goes to X red and cap off the white neutral coming from plug -welders and hot water tanks do not return unused electrcity via the white neutral (return) wire--they use up what is available on demand in heating elements or in welders - the electromagnetic field.GET HELP DOING THIS, by someone who has knowledge, SKILLS and EXPERIECE. I have 1 welder fitted to go into dryer plug which has 14-30 recepticle, and i have 1 where i kill stove circuit at panel, unplug stove, plug in 14-50 plug which has a 10-50 recepticle on other end, plug in welder 10-50 -p, flip cicuit breaker switch to on-welder has full power range capacity. No oven in use while welder going--but probably wouldnt run it anyway if on different circuit.Any doubts whatsoever--anything not 100% clear--DO NOT DO THIS or any other Electrical Manipulations--have a licensed electrician stub in a secondary circuit breaker off your main if load is acceptible and have him wire in the recepticle which your plug will fit into---.

I am trying to power a bathroom fan and lite combonation from a GFCI that is located in the next room. I've taken power from the load side of the receptical , why won't it work ? Is it because all...

If you have a GFCI recepticle with 8 holes in the back. hook your fan to the two holes on the "line" side. If you don't have four holes to use tail, join the line wires, with a tail to hook to the line side of the recepticle. This way you have a direct power to the fan and protected circuit to the recepticles.. Make sure your connections are good. If using the "holes" make sure you tighten with a screw driver and not just a screw gun.

Check to see if there is a GFI outlet in the house or garage. Reset if tripped. My wife would trip the GFI in the garage when she used the hair dryer in upstairs bathroom.

Power from house to garage. i wont a switch to turn light on and a double power socket. please could you help me.

Just tap the power on your existing power breaker and laid off the new cable in pipe to your garage. For your socket outlet , you will need to install 3 wires ( +, - and G) and for light ( the switch in your house, you need also 3 wires like socket outlet)
Make sure to power off the electricity breaker before you commence the works.

Where is the main switch to shut off the power in the house? I was vacuuming and the power went out in various areas around my condo. I think I have isolated the breaker and want to change it but I do not...

In some condos/apartments the main breakers are located outside. This is because the meter and incoming service are some distance from the local panel. Perhaps your breaker isn't bad, but the additional load of the vacuum caused it to "trip" Unlike some brands the Bryant don't show a trip indication other than the handle moving. Try turning this breaker completely off, ( if it was tripped, it will click) then turn it back on. If you do locate the main outside, and decide to change the breaker inside, be sure to "lock out" the main disconnect while you're working on the panel.

Where is my 1991 holiday rambler travel trailer converter

I had a similar problem on my 1995 Holliday Rambler Aluminalite 29 foot travel trailer with the similar layout of your trailer. My converter was only putting out 12.28 Volts DC. I fount the converter under the front of the trailer. (facing the front of the trailer, just right of center about 8" back)
There was a pannel with screws on the underbelly. I could hear the humm of the transformer. I removed the cover and found the red wire from the converter to a stud nut was loose. Tightened the nut and now I have 13.29 Volts DC.
