Jetty Outdoor 52 inch The fan comes with only a wall switch (knob) and my plan is to not install the switch and install a universal fan remote control kit.

    Hey everyone, New to the forum, but not to DIY. Pretty handy with most things (cars, general carpentry, DIY around the house, etc), but not afraid to ask for help when I need it and for this project wanted to consult some of the experts so I get it right the first time since it'll be a pain to...

    Good evening all. My wife and I recently bought a house and our inspector missed some major electrical issues that I am now trying to diagnose. I'm hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on this situation. So we initially noticed that we had around 12 outlets not working in the...

    Can I tie together two 14/3 lamp wires from two separate ballasts into one 12/3 wire for my run and then back into two separate 14/3 at the lamp sockets?

    Hi there, I am running a wire from my 1HP VFD to my 1/2 HP motor. I have decided to just run 12/3 BX instead of the braided cable because there are no other sensitive loads around. It's a short run. 10ft so I am not worried about noise. But my question is, the peckerhead on the motor has a KO...

    I just finished a certified electricians course. Unfortunately, the lab portions of the course were pretty sparse and far from relevant in the current market. I got a job purely by happenstance and availability working as an electrician's helper in a company that does commercial refrigeration...

    I have a Babbitt LS2000 level switch. I am having a hard time trying to wire the upper and lower switch. I think I may need some type of latch circuit. I simply want to empty a tank when it is full. I.e. the top switch will activate the pump and the bottom switch will turn the pump off. On...
