Questions about Electrical Projects In Progress:


Robert in Michigan: Main Panel Electrical Safety
The home interior wiring is copper with appropriate grounding, etc. Utility electric service line to main distribution box in the basement is aluminum. Are there enhanced fire risks associated with the service line? Are there features in at the box that should be present for added protection? Should the service main be immediately replaced with copper?

Robert in Iowa with a Tripping Breaker and Outlet Problem
My wife plugged in an old waffle iron and we had a melt-down! Not only did the 20amp breaker on that circuit blow but it also tripped the main. I reset the breaker and the main and everything came back on okay, my concern is why the main blew in the first place. Do I have something new to worry about? The panel is a Siemens 150 amp with a mix of modern Romex and cloth-bound wires in an old house that was built in 1940.

Chris in Reno, Nevada: Wiring for a Tankless Water Heater
I have a 40 gallon electric water heater in an older home (1940's). I want to replace it with a tankless system. I'm looking at the Rheem RTEX-18 240V 2 Heating Chambers Residential Tankless Water Heater. I know that the current water heater uses 240V single phase and the breaker panel has a double pole 30amp breaker. The Tankless system says it requires a double pole 40amp breaker. Is it possible to switch out the breakers in my panel so it will meet the tankless systems requirements?

John in Chase City, Virginia: Wiring 3Way and 4Way Switches
I am adding 2 three-way switches to replace one single switch so both doors to the kitchen have a nearby light switch. I have the necessary permit. The house is mostly two simple one room farm houses each over 200 years old connected with a "dog trot" that was replaced in the 1940's with a connecting room and a bathroom. Electricity came to this area in 1938 and the house was wired by 1940. QUESTION: I understand the NEC now requires a grounded conductor (white or grey wire) to be included on a switch loop (For example using 12-3 w/ground instead of 12-2 w/ground) for a single switch. Is that also true for 3 and 4 way switches? (Using 12-2-2 rather than 12-3?) Thanks.

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?
