Modification of Old Electrical Work

What is wrong if you shut off the electricity at the circuit box and had to shut off a few to find the right circuit to change a fixture and now your pool lights and kitchen ceiling fan do not work?

== == Sometimes when you shut down a circuit breaker it doesn't go all the way back to the on position. Try shutting them off again, making sure they go fully to the off position then flip them on making sure they are fully on. If the toggle that you flip is wobbly or feels loose that is your problem and you can correct it by doing the above. <><><> It is possible that one of the circuit breakers you turned off is bad. I have turned off breakers before and had them fail to reconnect the circuit when it was flipped back on. I had to replace the breakers. <><><> Could be the electrical circuits in the pool area - which is very liable to get water spray and splashes - is protected by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) as well as the main circuit breaker on the supply panel.

If that fixture you mentioned has been replaced incorrectly there could be a wiring error or a ground fault condition which is tripping the GFCI. As working on electricity in a wet area is now illegal in many localities - check the wiring codes or regulations in the town or state where you live - it is safest and best to call in a licensed electrician to fix this problem for you. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

If you do this work yourself, always turn off the powerat the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND always use a meter or voltage indicator to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

The fixture box should have a ground screw on the bottom of the box. Sometimes you have to move other wires out of the way to see it. Just reconnect the fixture ground wire to this screw.

You would either have to remove the ceiling in the kitchen or the floor in the bath, and add additional joists to strengthen them, or possibly add steel in combination with the joists.

I have both types of fans in my kitchen. I use the ceiling fan to move the air around the kitchen when it is hot outside. The stove fan is used when I fry foods like fish, I do not like the smell of fish lingering in my kitchen.

It depends on if the existing light is on it's on circuit, or if it is attached to other electrical devices in the area and are all on the same circuit at the panel box, and if so is there any more room left on the circuit to carry That's really a question for an electrician. But I do know this much, you better not overload the circuit! Make sure the circuit can handle another light source before you do that.

If it's coming from the roof then the bathroom ceiling will have a water stain on it too. If you don't see this then it is coming from your bathroom.

When the sun starts to set in the evening and shadows make their way into living rooms everywhere, lights are turned on to dispel the darkness. The type of lighting used in each home across the country can be nearly as varied as the sands of the sea, given the options available today. Some people prefer to have a lamp of some sort sitting on an end table near the couch or a favorite chair. That style does give a certain feel to the living room or family room. But other people make the choice to have lighting installed on the ceiling instead. The end result is that more light is shed over a greater area by using the ceiling light. There is practically no limit to the varying styles of ceiling lighting available. Flush mount lighting will allow the lighting fixture to sit flush with the ceiling. That creates a very smooth, even look which is very eye appealing. For a room with a very low ceiling, this can be an ideal choice for that situation. This style also does fine in a bathroom setting or in a kitchen setting, as well. There is always the option to choose track lighting. This type of ceiling light allows for the lighting to cover a longer length of the ceiling than a single fixture ceiling light does. This is a good choice of lighting if several people want to have direct lighting above their heads at the same time, perhaps for reading purposes. Then of course, there is always the time proven traditional ceiling light that offers elegance and style. The choices for the traditional light fixture range from a clear glass or etched glass all the way to a French country or a bronze or a brass fixture. One could literally say that the sky is the limit. Or perhaps it would be better to say that the ceiling is the limit when it comes to beautiful ceiling light.

Yes, if the circuit breaker and the wiring is large enough to carry the sum of the amp draw of all. Without knowing what will be plugged into the outlets, there is no way to be more specific. &lt;&lt;&gt;&gt; It is recommended to use a dedicated circuit for a garbage disposal. It is best not to add any additional loads to kitchen counter receptacles as these are also dedicated circuits.

User Avatar

Kitchen outlets are rated at 20 amps and only dedicated for the kitchen. code states that there must be two 20 amp circuits supplying kitchen small appliances. bedroom outlets are fed by a 15 amp circuit most likely and that circuit is most likely feeding two rooms or so.

Electricity is what makes your kitchen appliances go. Gravity is what holds them down on the counter.

If the drain is used as a wet vent for another fixture 2". Otherwise 1.5".

User Avatar

Forecast lighting is a good fixture to cast light over a specific area. For example, placing it over a kitchen table will cast light directly onto your area.

User Avatar

That would depend on local codes... I fiqure 2 fixture units and even if the code allow the use of 11/2" diameter pipe I always use 2" MIN.

User Avatar

It stops flowing. An analogy to this is the kitchen faucet ... water is always "at the ready" behind the valve, ready to flow when it is enabled. Same is true in an electrical circuit - once the circuit is broken (valve closed in above analogy) the flow of electrons ceases. If there is a light bulb which is not on it is a open circuit. If the light bulb is still on it is parallel circuit which has lot of wires causes some of the lights to go on and some to go of.

User Avatar

If a component of a parallel circuit fails, there are complete pathways for electricity to allow the remaining components to carry on functioning. ( For instance if the living room light bulb fails, the kitchen light can still work.) Also, if you link several bulbs in series, the current through them drops and they are dimmer than one on its own, but this doesn't happen with a parallel circuit.

User Avatar

In the kitchen you have to jump to the ceiling and go through the vent until you reach the door.

User Avatar

I do not know of a specific code in the United States. However, a flourescent fixture should be covered if breaking a bulb would create serious problems, such as in a kitchen, a place where children play, etc. In lieu of covering the whole fixture they manufacture tubes that cover the bulbs themselves for the same purpose.

User Avatar

well kitchen sinks are set at 2 fixture units and on a 2" drain you can have 4 because horizontal 2" line can have 8 fixtures units and 2" vertical can have 16 fixture units.

In my opinion just leave the ceiling white. If you paint it the same color as the walls it makes that space seem smaller or enclosed like a box.
