    Wires that are too short to reach the breakers can be extended as long as the space does not get filled more than 75%. What can not be done is using the panel as a junction for circuits that do not...

    Yes it is against Canadian code. CEC 2015. 12-3032(1)

    The circuits would have to be removed and installed in the new panel. If they are not long enough a junction box will need to be used.

    No, can't go over 20amps on a 15.

    But you could place a 50amp NEMA14-50 on a 40amp circuit. Or a single (none duplex) 20 amp on a 15 amp circuit.[/QUOTE]

    Yes it should still put out some voltage if there is voltage on the primary. It's a 2:1 ratio so it should be half.

    When you say you tested the primary, what were you testing it to? Ground?

    a cold incandescent light bulb on a shelf will have a low resistance. Energize it and the resistance increases with heat.

    It's a resister that gets so hot, white hot actually, and glows
