Questions about Electrical Projects In Progress:


Dodj in Brea, California: Installing an EV Charger Outlet
I'm replacing a 14-30R receptacle with a 10-30R receptacle. I will use the black and red wire as hot wires. Do I use the ground or white wire for the neutral wire?

Alex in Mountain View, California: Adding a Circuit Breaker for a Washer and Dryer
My condominium has aluminum wiring and was built in 1972. A number of the units have installed washer and dryers and have added the 240-volt two pole circuit breaker. I know that our breaker boxes only have two slots left in them for expansion. All of the breakers in our boxes are thin. My question is: I'm installing a 220 volt breaker into our box but the little piece of metal that the breaker snaps onto that completes the electrical connection are missing. Can I purchase new ones?

David in Fresno, California: Air Conditioner Tripping a Breaker
I installed a 12ga wire from the main box to a bedroom back in 1980 during an addition project. Everything has been fine up until our terrible heat wave a few weeks ago. At that time I had to purchase a portable AC unit, Friedrich brand, and had this hooked into this outlet. This was the only device using power as the room was otherwise empty and AC was only for a pet. The unit was running nonstop until a breaker tripped Friday and when I reset it things started to run again. Why would one item cause this to trip?

Jason in San Francisco, California: New Wiring for Dishwasher and Disposal
I had an electrician install new wiring for me for my dishwasher and garbage disposal (installed new line, conduit, and new breaker switches), but he has left for vacation prior to the cabinet / disposal / dishwasher being installed so now I have to do it myself. What I see coming out of the wall / conduit is a White, a Black, and a Red wire, and a naked copper wire for grounding. I also see a Romex cable from the switch with white, black, and a grounding wire feeding into the same box. I'd like to know... if I have 4 outlets (two normal 2-outlet devices), what is the wiring diagram for 3 of those outlets to be unswitched and hot all the time and one to be switched for the disposal? I'd like to see if I could also make the two unswitched or hot outlets get power first (shorted distance to conduit with no jumps) because the dishwasher can be high drain and shorter distance is ideal), then link in serial to the switched outlet for the disposal, and another HOT or unswitched outlet above that outlet for the switched garbage disposal. Thanks.
