    I work for the schools and recently we hooked up with Schneider. One of our damper actuators went out and all we have are the new Schneider actuators, which we haven't been trained on. They aren't too keen on sending someone out there to tell us how it works, and even after searching the...

    I have a GE slide-in induction range. When using the induction cooktop, you normally will hear a slight buzzing sound coming from the magnets. The stove is hard wired to a dedicated 40 amp circuit. Last year we had a Fujitsu mini-split installed. When the mini-split compressor is running the...

    I'm posting for my first time. Currently, I'm a CEMEX ready-mix truck driver and looking to cross back over to the learning another construction trade once again, and to have an end-goal to run my own thing.

And although the numbers match it was missing a duel prong spade terminal mounted to the out side of the...

    I recently had the fan motor on my condenser blade replaced. The hvac tech left the splice outside the shroud. He used a waterproof end to secure the splice and wrapped with electrical tape. It is exposed though where someone could come up and touch it. Does this meet code (California)? Does...

    Hey all. Saw this attachment on the Local 40 website and was wondering if anyone had any experience with or opinions about this type of thing. I am likely about to be assigned a bid for HVAC duties at my current job (which is non-IBEW) and am curious about this opportunity. I called the number...

    I went to do an electrical inspection for someone and I found their furnace motor leaking oil. Someone had put some kitty litter under it to catch the spill too. The woman told me she had a furnace guy come out and he said everything work, or everything was fine but I pointed out to her that the...
