Well yes now they need handle ties, I don't see that as a show stopper.cschmid said:bob multi-wire worked fine until the 2008 code now easier to install regular circuits.
I never let that enter my mind, I do my work correctly, how someone else works is not my concern..going to be allot safer working behind the unqualified wont have to worry about all the screw ups they could do with a multi-wire..
I wish there was a way we could get the "Let's make everything safe for the unqualified/handyman/DIY" mentality out of the trade.iwire said:I never let that enter my mind, I do my work correctly, how someone else works is not my concern.
It would sure make the code book a pound or two lighter.peter d said:I wish there was a way we could get the "Let's make everything safe for the unqualified/handyman/DIY" mentality out of the trade.
Never heard of such a device and I have never had a 'good' motor trip a GFCI.csparkrun said:you could try a motor rated gfci,
No.can you still get around installing a gfci with a single outlet thinking that that appliance (refer or warmer) would be occupying the receptacle?
The leakage current is a threat to human safety, if the EGC becomes compromised the case of the unit will be at a full 120 volts.cschmid said:to fix motor leakage that poses no threat to human safety you must replace referigerator..
For one that sounds high for the other it brings us back to thisLxnxjxhx said:10 mA = painful, 100 mA = the low end of fatal.
iwire said:the likely hood that the leakage current is high enough to trip the GFCI but not high enough to kill is a very slim possibility.
From hereShock in the range of 6 to 30 milliamps can be very painful, and the person in contact cannot let go of the circuit. At around 50 milliamps respiratory arrest is possible, with severe muscular contractions. Ventricular fibrillation starts around 67 milliamperes of current. This is when the heart basically starts fluttering and is not pumping blood through the system. If not stabilized, death is a real possibility.
