Why do alligator clip jumper wires not glow when in the circuit?

Alligator clip jumper wires are used for test purposes only. They are used to jump part of a circuit out while trouble shooting. Because of the low resistance of the combination of the clips and the wire there is no way that the jumper can glow under normal operating conditions. That being said, if the load is of a high amperage and the jumpers can not take the current they will start to get hot up until the point that the circuits protection trips the circuit open.


What size of wire should be used for 60Hz?

The frequency has no direct relationship to the size of wire. Wire is sized as to the amount of current a load draws in a circuit.


What happens when you connect the line wire from the switch to the load wire from the wall?

This is what the purpose of a switch is. It connects the "hot" wire to the load. When this is done the load becomes energized.


Can a 3 wire load center be use in a 2-wire environment?

yes you can. but you will have less 220 v circuits. <<>> In North America if you only have a two wire supply it is usually 120 volts. To connect a three wire load center to this supply, a jumper wire is connected across the two lugs that would have taken the 240 volt input if you had that supply voltage. This is where your 120 volt supply is connected. The neutral of the 120 volt supply connects to the neutral buss bar. What this connection does is "hot" up both sides of the buss bar so that you will have 120 volts on each breaker outlet. By eliminating the jumper you would only have every other breaker slot energized.


Do you need a neutral wire for a light to work?

The neutral wire is the return wire back to the distribution panel from the load. Without this return wire no load will work.

How do you bypass a starter solenoid?

A starter solenoid can be bypassed by connecting a jumper wire between the battery and ignition posts on the starter. This will cause it to spin immediately without using the ignition switch.

Unplug the connector and use a jumper wire to maintain a constantly complete circuit. You do this only for diagnostic testing - never for regular operation.
