Hello gurus,

A customer is asking if the under cabinet lightings (12' LED strips, need 120 V AC to 12 V DC transformer ) and the corresponding electricals violate the code or not (I am a realtor). The customer says that one electrician says code violation and the other one says no violation. The one who says violation :"the electrical still needs to be relocated, the electrical under the cabinet now is for a fixture only" and he wants to open the wall and relocate the electricals. My understanding is that in a kitchen, wiring cannot come out of walls unless with proper junction box connections and a box is only allowed certain lengths, transformers must be exposed, kitchen needs to be 20 amps and branch circuits must be independant. No specific code mentioned by the electrician and I cannot find the corresponding code one of the electricians mentioned. So we come here for advice. If not too much asking, please share your comment, if any.

As you can see, the under cabinet lighting wirings in the kitchen are connected to a box. Even though they come out of the wall at this point, it can be easily pushed into the wall. The wirings are extended in the pictures just for the wiring convenience at this point. So my understanding is that there is no violation. Am I right?







Much appreciate!

John
