    I can't tell what oven you have. Look at rating plate on oven. It will show Volts and Watts. Then open link included in Dec 2012 answer to figure correct wire and breaker. Or add comment with Volts and Watts that show on rating plate, and measure distance between oven and breaker box, and I will make best recommendation based on National Electric Code, however local codes vary slightly. Also you local hardware and/or home center will have charts. Plus you can consult electrician at retail electric supply like greybar, etc.

1) Copy following link for live answer Dec 2012 to figure correct wire size

2) Fixya posts 'recommended' answers based on computer guessing what you asked. Look for date on each answer.
Recommended answers can be totally unrelated, but sometimes they are spot on. These answers were posted by experts over previous years, and now fixya owns the work done by others and uses that work to answer questions that live expert does not answer.

3) This particular Question was posted under 'Chrome timer knob set,' and somehow ended up among timer questions. Each expert answers questions by expertise such as timer, water heater, electric wiring etc.
Often the questions do nor show a product or clearly state what answer is needed. People do not always know what they are asking for. That's why fixya is here: to help sort out possible answers.
So the expert sometimes guesses at answer, or the computer guesses which recommended answers to post.

4) Add a comment for live follow-up, Dec 2012

I want to install home generator to transfer switch.Can transfer switch be wired to sub panel.Also my generator has to be located about 60ft. From panel,is this possible?

When there is only one ammeter in the three-phase circuit and the three-phase current needs to be monitored, a start switch is needed to achieve this function. For example, three-phase switch, at least three knobs move position, switch panel marked which line name, if you want to monitor which line, you can dial the knob to the corresponding name, the ammeter will show the corresponding line current.

Just open the back cover of the HDTV and look for the black plastic transformer with two red wires it is the plyback transformer there is two little knobs one for the screen and the other one is for the focus.

What size wire and what size amp do I use to install a galaxy dx95t in my car

I am thinking you are asking about the " power supply wire "....Ultimately this depends on how much power your radio is asking for when transmitting. Usualy a # 16 wire is adequate but # 14 would if you were to9 pump out 40 to 75 Watts and # 12 Minimum for up to 100 Watts which means heavier wire as the power requirement is increased.

How does the power level work in conjunction with the Thermostat? does the power goe through the Stat first or the power level.

Hello. These two areas within your oven operate on two separate systems because they operate on very different voltage needs and thus very different size wire. The thermostat is right behind the knob you use to set the oven baking temperature. There's a long, thin copper tube attached to this knob that leads into the oven compartment. It senses the temperature inside the oven and signals the thermostat to provide or prevent further heating. There's another type of thermostat--an electronic/mechanical hybrid unit--that has a small electronic circuit board behind the knob. It has a sensor attached to it--about the size of a 4- to 6-inch pencil, that protrudes into the oven. When the oven reaches the temperature you set, the sensor signals the circuit board, which turns off the electric burner(s) in the oven.

I bought a frigidaire dryer knob to replace the broken one. But how do I get the knob on without hammering it and cracking the knob and stem? the stem on my frigidaire dryer is broken - i have the knob...

You will want to take out the screws on the back of the dryer behind the control panel. Once off you will see all the wires and such connecting to the timer and the knobs. Make sure you disconnect the power first before digging in in there. When you find the spot that your knob goes take that control part off and place your knob in. Once you have the back off you will see how it goes on. If you have any other questions feel free to ask me and please let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and glad I could help.

Picture is cut off on the bottom of my Hitachi 57F500

Verical position is hard to adjust and is in service menu. A service manual will get you there, but you might get lucky with the vertical size adjustment. If you open the front of the TV, the vertical size is adjusted with a knob on the deflection board. Remove the speaker grille and take off the access panel. You will see two knobs, one horizontal and one vertical. Be careful, those red wires have 30,000 volts on then, don't touch anything but those knobs. If its just an adjustment, the v-size knob will fix. Set it so ESPN ticker is just above the bottom of the screen. *Service mode - the manual tells little but entering is done by "press and hold the input button, press the power button, release both after you hear HV come up" .. the v-pos parameter is in there, but this manual doesn't say where or how to adjust, procede at your own risk. If you get into trouble, pull the power so you don't save any settings. I believe you just navigate through the menus to find the parameter and use arrows to adjust. Enter may save. Sorry the service manual I have tells nothing much.

Hole is to Small

It's actually quite simple, all you need is a drill and the right size or drill bit.
Choose a drill bit a about the size of the hole required, if you are not sure, choose a smaller size, it's easier to make a hole bigger.

Take apart the old knobs, from the inside of the cupboard, use the drill make the old holes bigger.

Attach the new knobs.

Congratulations, you did it :-)
