I am sure local code will not allow this. It needs to be hard wired from a disconnect (fusable).

Thanks

They will have wiring information for each of their products.

The wiring diagram should appear on side of unit.
This 1.5 Hp motor can be wired for 115 or 230 volts

My AO Smith manual would not be specific to your motor.
With AO Smith 115-230V, there are one set of wiring terminals for incoming wires from breaker box. The other wires connect to terminals.
Copy following illustration link:

Wire and breaker size:
For 120Volt, use 20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire up to 25 feet.
Over 25 feet up to 100 feet, use 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire.
100-150 feet use 8 gauge wire and 40 amp breaker.
150-200 feet use 6 gauge wire and 50 Amp breaker.

I have a compressor that is wired for 220v however I only have 110v receptacles in my garage. This is a rental and running a 220v receptacle isn't an option. My plan is to change the cord from the...


The link below explains the extension cord requirements / amps. According to the chart, 14 gauge is good for about 50 feet, however you could bump-it up to 12 to be on the safe side. If you have a dryer plug in the garage or close, you could share that plug when not in use. Go to electrical supply house (or Lowes) with drawing of the plug /outlet needed and buy the components to make cord. If you have a 115v plug in the garage with its own breaker at the panel (plug with direct wiring to the panel) you could have an electrician convert it to 220 very easily. Good luck with your future projects.

I have a machine required 125 amp and the current circuit breaker is 95


You will not only need to change the circuit breaker but you will also most likely have to change the wire size running from your machine/disconnect/receptacle. For 125 amps you will need at least 2AWG copper wire

40 amp gfi on hot tub keeps tripping.I have a 50 amp.can I use?


Your hot tub needs GFI protection because it is electrical, and people sit inside water that could be exposed to electric current.
You have a fault to ground that needs to be fixed.

Size 8 wire for 50Amp breaker.
Size 6 if tub is 50-100' feet away

How do I run from a 100 amp main panel to a 60 amp subpanel, 125 from my house to the garage


See 60 Amp sub-panel image

Above image shows drawing of 60Amp sub-panel located next to main panel. Drawing shows #6 wire... 125' distance to garage calls for #4 wire. I ran #4 to my barn and have no problems.

Give thought to how many new breakers you want at garage.
See photo of subpanel that holds three 240V breakers

Using drawing as a guide. Replace existing 240Volt breaker with new 60 Amp breaker. Two hot wires connect to new 60 Amp breaker. Neutral connects to neutral busbar.

More space: You can free up space in main breaker box using a tandem breaker. Or by doubling up 2 lightly used 120V circuits onto one breaker. Do not double-up on 240 Breakers

Conduit: You want PVC conduit large enough to fit three #4 wires. Bigger conduit is easier to pull wires ... and maybe later ethernet wire, or alarm wire etc.

Ground wire: You can put a ground rod at garage and run #6 bare copper between sub-panel neutral-busbar and ground rod. Attach ground wire firmly with grounding clamp.

I want you to check with local electrical supply for exact code in your area concerning conduit requirements, grounding, and wire size. Tighten all lugs very tight against wire.

Ground rod placement


If this is a Sub pannel that is fed from a main pannel then you don't need a ground rod for it, but you do need to run a ground wire in the cable that feeds it. So if it is fed by a 220 volt breaker in the main pannel it needs both hot wires, a neutral, and a ground wire in the cable.
Also when you get to the pannel do not attach the ground bonding jumper to the neutral bus in the sub pannel. each of the 4 wires will be seperated at the sub pannel.
Presto.

Number 6 wire and a 40-50 amp breaker. Anything smaller will overheat and become a fire hazard, especially at 139 feet.
