comment Door open lightswitch for sliding closet doors
I disagree that this isn't an answer. "How do I wire it" wasn't specific about using physical switches, so wiring to a motion sensor seems to be a valid and useful answer that wasn't addressed by the other answers.

Question #20 on this site was asked back in 2010 and referenced knob and tube wiring. Do you have a URL of the question you are referencing? diy.stackexchange.com/questions/20/…

comment How can I resolve tripping problems with CAFCI?
Are the kitchen circuits "multi-wire branch circuits" where a shared neutral feeds two circuits? This is frequently done when you have lots of appliances and want two circuits at each receptacle (top/bottom). Shared neutrals are incompatible with GFCI and will result in an immediate trip.

@HotLicks I assume you're referring to the 3rd method since the first two are just places to look. And if the 3rd method is done right, there are no repairs. You're lifting up a piece of vinyl just like you would lift the corner of a rug. Of course if you damage a home while inspecting it doing anything, the proper thing is to cover the repair.

comment How do I find what these breakers go to?
Bridging circuits is a mistake, but one that can easily happen when someone rewires a junction that contains two circuits. It can be a simple as a switched outlet where the tab wasn't removed on the replaced outlet. If this is the case, you'd see current on the hot wire coming off this breaker even when switched off.

comment What are some methods to get rid of and prevent pink mold in the bathroom?
-1 because "grinded off" will typically destroy the underlying surface. At which point you're suggesting the OP replace the floor, tub, sink, or anywhere else this has appeared.

comment How do I hook up a water line to the ice-maker on my old Frigidaire fridge?
Looks like you'll need an adapter to convert this back to 1/4" compression. Guessing someone took off one piece too many when the water line was previously disconnected.
