    First of all, I'm not an electrician. I know some basics, but just enough to shock myself. I can't seem to find an answer to this question online, which seems simple to me. I bought a 1985 condo - one bedroom, 900 sq. ft. I discovered that every electrical outlet along one entire side of the...

    I've got a question, I have been starting a new project that runs off 24VDC. I need a breaker rated for [email protected] which i cant find. The closest one I could find is a [email protected] (thermal breaker) and I'm wondering if that breaker will work at 24VDC and trip at 4A. Yeah, It's a dumb question, but I...

    I have a double pole circuit that, when I try to turn the breaker on with no appliances connected and 99.999% certain there's no short circuit, it does not want to stay in the on position. If I push it 2-3 times, it will stick in the on position. When I have one appliance connected (1 wall...
