    I am doing some re-wiring in my detached garage. The garage has a sub-panel. The sub panel power is supplied by a 10 gauge wire ran underground through conduit from the main panel in the house (50-60 feet away). The 10 gauge feed to the sub-panel comes off of a 30 amp breaker in the main panel...

    We are thinking about selling a house with fuse box. That will be an issue with inspectors and potential buyers. I want to convert it to circuit breakers. I would really like to use a bus conversion kit so I can use the old enclosure and not have to re-route ALL the wires (possibly having to...

    I have an old fuse box installed near my gas heating system boiler (which heats two zones: house and den). The fuse box contains two 15 A fuses, installed in a ceramic fixture. From one fuse (on the left) a line (Romex) runs to an on-off switch installed at the boiler. From the other fuse...

    I would like to run 240v to my garage. The plan is to install a sub-panel, inside the house where the A/C #8 wire exits. Will a sub-panel support the A/C compressor and 240v to the garage? Note: Currently the detached garage is fed by a 30A fuse (120v), ran through buried conduit...

    Hi All, My husband and I are having to replace some Romex that led from a fuse box, some 300' to a trailer water heater. It was 3 wire #12. Although it worked with the water heater just fine for many years--the element in it was rated 3800 watts--we know the Romex should be #10, especially...

    I recently wired my shop and the only hangup I'm having is hooking it up to the main fuse box in the house. The main panel is a 200a old style fuse box that was put in when the house was built in 1972. All of the wiring to/in my shop is in conduit and I installed a 125a main lug breaker box with...

    Hi, we drove past a triplex we are considering for purchase tonight. When we got out of the car to have a look around a bit, one of the tenants saw us and came out. He was telling us what he knew of the house and said the fuse box is on the outside of the house. This is a concern for us, because...

    2003 Toyota Matrix: Was sitting in freezing temperatures for 8 days. Tried to start initially and lights were dim, auto locks worked, dashboard warnings were present. There was also a clicking noise from the fuse box that stopped after about 5 minutes. I checked some of the fuses but they all...

    I know the best option is to replace the fuse box w/ a breaker box, but I don't have the money to do so right now. Here's the problem... 1) 15 amp Type S fuse will no longer screw into the Edison Base in the fuse box because it has been replaced so many times the threads are stripped. Is it...

    I just bought a house about a month ago that's been "gutted" so I have alot of work to put in. Most of the work I've done before, but who ever decided to take from the house took the fuse box/circuit breaker box out. Now I don't know which one the house originally had in, or if it makes a...
