Yes. Just make sure you keep the junction box accessable to meet code. Also if you are extending the outlet to more than 75 feet away from the panel you should run 4-3 wire.

Yes, as long as that junction box is accessible after you finish the remodel. It cannot be inside a wall or anyplace that it cannot be gotten to. Make sure it has a cover on it.

I assume you are going from electric to gas. You can derate the outlet or run a new one. You should seriously consider simply adding a new outlet behind the stove so you can easily go back to electric.

A Peltier junction is the same as a thermocouple junction, except instead of using heat to generate electric current an electric current is forced through it to move heat. Thus in a heatsink unit one junction (on the hot IC) gets cold removing heat and the other junction (on the heatsink fins) gets very hot. Thus it acts like a electric refrigeration system for the IC.It has no moving parts (except maybe a fan) like the compressor and coolant in mechanical refrigerators. It is even reversible to make a heater by just reversing the electric current. Portable electric food cooler/heater units are available, these typically plug into a car cigarette lighter outlet.

Some use AC electric power from a wall outlet. Some use DC electric power from a rechargeable battery (but this was originally charged using AC electric power from a wall outlet).

That is the normal electric outlet found on the walls of your home in the USA

Although both options exist, it would seem that the vast majority of electric chair lifts require a standard outlet. The outlet, however, must be grounded (three prongs).

Just make it a junction box. Remove the outlet, tie the blacks together under a wire nut. The the whites together under a wire nut. Tie the ground wires together under a wire nut. Push all the wires back into the outlet box and cover it with a blank cover. Paint the cover the same color as the wall. Do not sheet-rock over the outlet box. All junction boxes must be accessible.

No, a home ceiling fan as with all permanent devices joined into the electrical system, the splice must be made in a junction box. The exemptions are electric baseboard heaters and appliances that are hard wired directly to the unit.

A manual machine is powered by hand, an electric one used electric power (plugged in to an electric outlet)

The first breaker's ground is bad, the second one is supplying the ground for the outlet to have power, thus one is finding the ground somehow to the outlet to have power. both breakers have to be on for the outlet to work. NOT A GOOD thing, suggest a weekend warrior, installed the electric, I would have a qualified electrician trace each outlet in the house and replace ALL outlets and switches. Inspect all junction boxes and check connections. I don't want to read about your house burning down in the paper..

The majority would plug into a standard outlet (120), however others may require a 240 outlet. You will need to check with the individual scooter to ensure you have the proper outlet to charge it.

I traced the wire from the fan to the junction box and the connection was loose.

Most new installations in new homes will have this feature. It is for a "garburator" which is connected to the kitchen sink outlet. There is usually a switch mounted on the wall near the sink for switching it on and off. The switch is usually mounted in a two gang junction box. The other device in the junction box is an electrical receptacle.

Electric staplers must be plugged into an outlet. You put the paper between the slots of the stapler and you papers will be stapled automatically.
