Run the cable through the attic. Without a switch-wiring-diagram it can be very easy to make a serious mistake that will cause the circuit to malfunction and possibly become a hazard. I can't see your 30A switch from here, and I don't know if you are planning to only flip the switch when all the machinery is off or not. Here's the wiring diagram, and how I wired it. No building code that I know of allows this. That entire panel is shut off by a large manual disconnect switch a separate switch, not a circuit breaker.
It's sloppy, and indicates the installer was not paying attention, or made a slip up in wiring and didn't catch it or didn't fix it. I guess you want to cut back to 120V so you don't need double pole breakers and switches? However, the switch won't stay on. Both types connect to the power and the unit the same way. The electrical symbols will not only show where something is to be installed, but what type of device is being installed. I might be able to go one more light but no sense pushing the limit any more than that. The only odd bit is, as the motor starts up I have seen the occasional brilliant blue spark down around the motor. This unit is enclosed in a metal box with 2 separate push button switches, one labeled start and one stop and a separate light.
Pushing the green closes the contacts and energizes the coil. Remove the insulation at the end of the cable and attach the green wire to the green screw, the white wire to the silver screw and the black wire to the brass screw. I havent looked at a two pole switch but I assume that a two pole will allow me to interrupt both hot leads on a 220 circuit. Simply strip the wire to the length specified and push the wire into the hole. These switches enable you to control one or more fixtures from three or more locations.
So it may be an option for you. Upon closer inspection the spark jumps from the metal flex conduit between the motor and the switch to the iron casting of the lathe. Also if you are dealing with several circuts you are creating a bigger problem. White wire or off-white is neutral. Quote: 2 each low bay fixtures that are wired for 120v at 400Watts The only amperage I can find on these two fixtures is 1.
This implies this is a magnetic switch activated by a momentary contact. When I push the on button, it doesn't stay pushed in. A magnetic breaker is designed to trip the circuit with an electromagnetic solenoid plunger that is built into the breaker.

I'm moving up from no shop to a 1-car garage, so I guess I'm going in the right direction. I am in the middle of shop reorg right now. He'll leave one set of terminals open.
Electric water heaters and dryers should always be on their own dedicated circuit. At any rate, 3-way switching is set up is the same whether in a 120v circuit or a 277v-to-ground circuit. For example a pump must be on or water flow must be occurring if a heating element is turned on otherwise there may be damage due to an overheating condition. I wired things up as suggested and it works! Make sure you understand the symbols on your diagram before beginning your project. In 3-conductor connections, there is no red wire.
You have the lathe wired to your breaker panel but it is hooked to a 30 Amp circuit. Should it be at the Borg and I am just missing it, or will I have to order it and where is a good place? You will even find symbols showing the location of smoke detectors, your doorbell chime, and the thermostat. Of course, add a chassis ground to all electrical enclosures. Is this the correct size of wire. Also, I hired an electrician to hang and wire halogen lights in the shop using 22Ov circuits.

All three items I mention are approved methold to safety disconnect the power in correct and safe codewise with it. Existing outlets may be converted to provide the desired functionality for most any room. This electrical question came from: Philip, a Homeowner from Mooresville, North Carolina. Some modern electronic ballasts seem to automaically adjust to the input voltage whether it is 120 or 277 volts. Motors tend to do fine with a little bit more voltage than they're designed for, and to overheat on low voltage.
Any advice that you could give would be appreciated. In my garage I plan to have a mill, lathe, bandsaw and air compressor running off a circuit breaker subpanel. Do not use the single pole switch on the 240 volt waterheater for safety reason due when you turn off the switch all you are doing is disconnect one leg and other leg is still alive and if you work on it. There always is the option of just going to the breaker box to kill the circuits, but I know that I will not think and skip going to the breaker box when I get called away from the shop. Turn the power back on and test the outlet. I built a radiant floor heat system for a garage, which is what this will be powering.
I'm not sure if a water heater is considered a continuous or non-continuous load. You may want to hire a qualified electrician to add the supply wires and breaker to the breaker box. The wiring from the switch to the motor is very old and funky so we are going to replace it, which isn't the problem. I've got 2 hot wires coming from the breaker and I want to switch both of those wires before they go to the outlet. I would like to add a switch to the circuit that the dust collector is on. Wiring diagrams and instructions will assist you with these situations.
