  1. Yes i know about them and what they are. Why can't you just use a regular 15A fuse. Is it code to use a safety fuse. That's where i was getting confused. Thanks guys.
  2. I'm surprised that no one mentioned the lack of safety fuses. - Jim Katen, Oregon They do sell time delayed safety fuses if needed. Sure, but those aren't them. You asked me to point out defects in the picture. The moment that someone put a 20-amp fuse on that 14-gauge-wire circuit, it required a safety fuse. Since that's not a safety fuse, it's a defect. - Jim Katen, Oregon So if there was a 20 amp safety fuse it would be alright?? I don't understand. Shouldn't it be 15 A fuse. Maybe i'm getting my fuses messed up here.

  4. He's taking about the grounding wire that terminates on the panel-mounting screw that's in shadow behind the white wire. That's a no-no. - Jim Katen, Oregon Why is it a no-no? What would an implication be?
  5. Thanks we got that one, anything else though? That might be missed?
  6. There are five defects in that picture, but I'll bet that there are more than five defects in that panel. Do you have a picture that shows the entire panel? - Jim Katen, Oregon (Edited after I saw Fritz's response, cause I missed a defect.) Sorry, i didn't take a picture of the entire panel. Any input on what you see in this picture would be helpfull though! Thanks.
  7. I got what you found except for the -grounding conductor under a screw head. What is wrong with that? Another dumb newbie question. Thanks. --Are you saying its a defect because its not connected at a grounding terminal??
  8. I found four defects in the panel, in the picture below. I was wondering if you guys can tell me what defects you see. I'm new to Home Inspection and would like your input to see if i didn't miss anything. Also the wires are all 14 gauge copper, and the white wire is one leg of a 240V circuit. Thanks. [:-magnify [
  9. yeah, i believe they are in parallel not series. double trapping is when you have two drains each with a trap and the one goes into the other.
  10. The dishwasher connects to a green garden hose.[:-slaphap
  11. Can anyone tell me whats wrong with this setup. The white pipe comes off the kitchen sink, the orange appliance on the left is a food disposal unit. Thanks.
