  1. Building & Construction
    Hello, everyone. I'm Danny and just bought my new home. I was wondering can someone explain me how to install panel (if you have a video this will be amazing), like the one in the photo to the celling. I will be so grateful.

    GE GTW680BSJ0WS I had the 2 water supply valves turned off when I started the washer. Got the “H2O Supply” message on the display. As usual, I turn off washer, turn on water, turn on washer; and all is good. But, this time: The control panel does not respond to any buttons, the water pump...

    I recently had a new electrical panel and separate meter installed in the main floor of a raised bungalow as we are converting to a rental unit. It was done by an electrician who worked with the local power authority and ESA for inspection. The end result is the new panel mounted horizontally...

    I have foundation insulation panels on my house that have been damaged by lawnmower, weed eater, etc. The damaged part is like a gravel or sand on the outside of the panels. Is there any way to repair these or do they just need to be replaced? See attached pic. Thanks!

    I've got my main water supply, galvanized 3/4in, that has a large bonding wire clamped to it. It runs across the unfinished basement, and ties into the electrical panel. I'm planning on replacing my old galvanized plumbing with PEX. I understand my main panel needs both a ground rod, which is...

    A year ago I bought a new house (a real fixer-upper). Before moving in I hired an electrician to replace the 100amp panel with a 200amp panel and fix a few things to get the house up and running. (Long story.) Now a year later I'm trying to get power to a room that wasn't hooked up in the...

    My exterior door is all wood. It seems it is made up of a few pieces where there is a panel near the bottom. I feel cold air leaking through where it seems the main part of the door and the panel connect. Any advice to tighten this gap or seal it without using rope caulk that is grey while my...

    Hi, I'm replacing breakers in panel. There were a few double pole single throw breakers that I'm replacing with a few 20a and 15a tandem/mini breakers (2 breakers that occupy one slot). Any limitation on how many breakers can be put into the 200a panel? Any other things I should consider?

    Hi, I had 3 wires in the panel that were using a marette in the panel to run an extension to the breaker. I have removed the marette and fed the 3 short wires into the top of the panel. The black and white reach the breaker, but the ground wire won't reach the ground bar. Please help with...

    Hi Everyone, I have a Square D electric panel, and yesterday the main breaker died on me. Because it's a 220, and still live on one side, I definitely think this is out of my DIY comfort. They showed me how the breaker couldn't be "popped" in an out, as it was the main line, and the entire...

    I am doing a panel replacement job in a multi-family house that failed inspection because some (pre-existing) circuits in the panel control common areas and the panel in not accessible to all residents (NEC 210.25 violation). The panel is on an exterior wall so the inspector suggests moving...

    Long story, so here's the short narrative. Water heater blew and flooded the house we bought 2 months ago. It was inside the house. So now we are wanting to with a tankless model, for various reasons. The unit I'm looking at, not to mention all models of this GPM require a triple 40A breaker. My...

    Hello, I have an open ground in a standard 120v outlet in a bedroom (conveniently, on the other side of the wall is the main electrical panel). I used a tester and determined that there are open grounds for this entire circuit. I checked each outlet in the circuit, and none of the ground wires...

    We have an old screw in fuse panel (10) and have noticed recently on bills that the hydro Thinking it's the panel, we logged online to view our account hourly usage. I jumped overnight from 10Kwh to 55Kwh. We stared by turning the main power switch off and monitoring online. No power used. Then...

    I’m looking to add a new circuit to my electrical panel. There is plenty of space for the new breaker, but the neutral / ground bar is totally full. That’s not a big deal for the ground wire as you can have more than one ground wire to a screw. But it is a problem for the neutral as you are...

    Hi there, I'm looking to do an accent wall with some kind of wood panels. Haven't decided whether I'll just have Home Depot cut 1/4" down or buy Timberline Skinnies or flooring for the wall. But here's my question--whenever I look at the install videos for all the materials, they use nails AND...

    Hello Everyone - I'm hoping to get some ideas. I'm refinishing my basement and looking for alternatives to drywall. The basement previously had 1/8" paneling directly against the studs, which I believe is now a code violation. I'm not sure whether there is any paneling or wall panels that can...

    First off, please excuse my ignorance to all things power. I'm a very technical person but power is my mind's kryptonite. I am building out some production equipment in a car hauler trailer. It requires an AC unit on the roof that says it maxes out in worst conditions possible at 1800 watts...

    Just bought an old house with an old garage. The garage door actually works fine, but the outside looks bad, with the bottom panel broken/rotted away, and I'd like to repair it. It's a 7'h x 17'w wood door. But interestingly, the exterior seems to be some sort of painted foam board, with wood...
