Hi Dave, We have 4 12 volt under cabinet lights in our kitchen. Two of them don’t work on a regular basis. All the wiring got hidden behind the cabinets when we did our kitchen redo a few years back.
Question: Hi I am replacing a ceiling fixture. There is one switch that controls 2 wall fixtures and the ceiling fixture. The new fixture has one white and one black wire. The junction box has 1 white and 2 black wires twisted together; 3 white twisted together and 2 black twisted together.
Question: How would I wire these various circuits:
Question: Can I change my daughter’s dryer cord from 3 flat bladed plug to a cord with one right angle (or “lying down T”) if wiring is adequate (10 gauge) and dryer indicates 28 amp? Receptacle currently on wall for old dryer would then match.
Question: My hallway light can be accessed from 3 different light switches. I am trying to replace one with a clipsal No. 31 switch with 4 connections on the back. I have 2 sets of wires to connect with a white & a red coming out of each.
I thought I had copied it accurately however none of the 3 switches which access this light now work.
Question: I have a double dimmer switch that controls two sets of lights in the same room.
Question: I often find that my ceiling fan motors get burnt during lightning (the lightning need not be strong.very very mild) even if the the main switch is off.

Have you heard of any breakers compatible with this?
Question: The kitchen counter (3 outlets) does not have GFCI protection at this time. I just determined that each of the outlets has 2 circuits, one to the top outlets and the other to the bottom outlets.
The built in vacuum popped the circuit breaker, but even when I unplug the vacuum the circuit breaker switch will trip in a matter of seconds again. Do I need to replace the individual breaker switch?
