#14 on a 20 amp breaker is a code violation. i'm not saying you have a ticking time bomb on
your hands but there is certainly a risk of overloading the cable and potentially causing a
fire. proceed wi...

I made a typo - the wiring behind the sockets is the white Romex, which is 14 gauge wire rated
for 15 Amps, but the breaker is a 20 Amp breaker. My 1500 Watt element should draw around 12.5

I had to put the project on hold so I could finish up grad school. I follow on that last post
before I dropped off I wired the switch just as in the wiring diagram, but with the 15 Amp
switch. Its not...

My idea was to place the switch between the PID and the relay that controls the element. There
is no way the PID will have more than 15 Amp output, the PID is fused at 0.75 Amp.

Thanks for sharing the diagram. The plan is to run 1500 Watt element, until I can move
somewhere with 20 Amp sockets, at that point I will change out for a 2000 Watt element. I
intend to place one 15 ...

Hey guys,If anyone would be so kind as to take a look, I'm hoping to get feedback on my circuit
diagram. I'm feeling fairly confident about it, but this is not an area where I want to screw

Thanks for the wisdom. I'll check my gauge and install the outlet if I can. I'll probably do a
discrete outlet so my property manager doesn't notice.

I'm setting up a small electric brewing system for use in my apartment. The breaker board in my
unit has three 20 Amp circuits labeled "Kitchen," but all of the sockets in my kitchen appear
to be 15 A...

Hey folks,I went to bottle my red ale today, my third five gallon homebrew batch. I measured
out 2/3 cup of sugar, or so I though, and boiled it in two cups of water, as per John Palmer's
"How to Brew...

If you have trouble getting labels off, I've found that an overnight soak in PBW will often get
the labels to fall off on their own.
