Best Answer

(1) Re-wire the fridge circuit and/or the range circuit with larger gauge wire.

(2) The range should be on its own circuit already (if not, put it on its own circuit like NEC mandates). You could try running a separate circuit just for the fridge too. You only _need_ to use 14 gauge wire, but use at least 12 gauge wire to help reduce voltage drop.

(3) If voltage drop is a problem elsewhere in your house, it might be time to look at a service upgrade.

Wire to electric fuel pump has low voltage?

if you have checked the voltage with a dvom then you need to verify that the power source at the fuel pump relay is correct, if it has the correct voltage pre-relay then your problem is post-relay. if the voltage is not correct pre-relay then simply trace and repair the power source. if the problem is post relay then check the output voltage directly at the relay, if voltage is good trace and repair line from relay to pump. if voltage is not correct then replace the fuel pump relay

Why is series connection not used for domestic purpose?

220 - 240V is the general limit for the house hold purpose and the same voltage should be supplied for all the electric componets which are using. We know, voltage will get drop after passing resistor/electric devices (which are consuming the voltage). If all components are in series, then voltage will be very less for the electric componet which is placed at last in series connection. For this reason, all connections should be placed in parallel, so that voltage will be same for all electric devices. I hope what i sad is correct. Raju (Mechanical)
