So your point is? Just make sure the wires going from your fused outlets to the 50-amp outlet plug is the size wire# 8--or #6 with ground.

Hi, I have a Rotel RLC 900 power conditioner. I had my Rotel amp and preamp plugged into the two amp outlets. I also had a tuner and cd player plugged int. Everything has been working great.

Hello, there is a problem with the power factor of the air conditioning unit and/or the power supplies of your audio equipment.
Read this first...
As you see, the electric motor of the external unit of your Air Conditioning, produces a distortion in the line of voltage, then you must talk with a specialist in that topic....

Four loads are connected in series across 120 volts and a 3- ampere current exists. One load fails to operate. The voltage across each of the other devices is 40 volts. What circuit fault is indicated?

because the loads are connected in series, the combined resistance is what drops the current to 3 amps
you will have to check the resistance of each load to find the faulty one
for example it is the same set up as if you have a lot of lights all connected in series
one light fails so the rest go out
you have to replace each light until they all come on

Ac works for abut 15 minutes, then pops breaker

First there should be no extension cord, plug the cord from the unit straight into the wall, the plugs ins should have very firm connection. Then my next recommendation would be to clean the out door coil, a dirty coil will prevent heat rejection, and draw high amps, loose electrical connections will cause the breaker to trip as well. Good luck

I have a carrier air conditioner 38TKB024. About 15 years old I think. Accidentally ran it with the cover still on after the winter. shut it off after about a day when I realized. Went to try it the...

You probably just blew the fuses or tripped the circuit breakers. There may be fuse right beside the unit in a box with a door on it. The fuses will be in a cartridge inside the box. You will need to change them both unless you have a ohm meter to check them. Also check your circuit breakers. The will more than likely be in your main circuit box. It will be two joined together, probably 20a or 30a. Trip them all the way back and then forward and try the unit again.

I need to replace the power cord on my Whirlpool air conditioner - part # PS318855. The Whirlpool replacement parts website says the part is discontinued. Is there a comparable one I can replace it with?

If you need to replace the cord because the plug is messed up, just get a 20A - 30A UL rated plug at Home Depot or any Hardware store.
If for some reason, you need to replace the whole thing, you can also get the cord with the same UL rating at the Hardware Store, they may have one already made. the only thing you need to do is install a female insulated electrical connection on the two main wires and a round terminal for the green wire and you'll be all set. You can even ask the associate to install the terminals for you.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
