comment What might cause my dryer to trip the breaker labeled AC?
If you manually turn off the breaker labeled "dryer" does the dryer work? When you turn the A/C breaker off, does the A/C work?

Can you post a clear photo of the furnace schematic? And/or the model number?

comment Can I connect the R and C wires directly to the HVAC transformer?
@BrianPontarelli Yeah, I've seen that video. The problem is, you don't have to be a licensed HVAC technician to make YouTube videos.

comment How do I wire a new range to old wiring?
Are you installing a range (free standing oven/stove), or a built-in oven/stove unit? Is the ground wire bare or insulated? What size is the ground wire? Is the cable feeding the device type SE cable?

Since you can't read the nameplate, I'm guessing you don't have a model number? Have you tried cleaning the nameplate? Sometimes taking a flash photo of the nameplate, allows you to see the printing in the photo. Sometimes numbers are stamped into the plate, so taking a rubbing can reveal the printing.

@DMoore "Although I would never do this myself". I don't agree with it either, but sometimes people don't care about the right way to do things. I'll also agree that in the early days, some of my answers were not so good. Will delete next time in at a computer.

comment Can you have a 90 degree elbow going upward on drain line?
@JPhi1618 Traps can be in the wall (think about a second floor tub/shower). However, according to code, traps have to be self cleaning, which this contraption would not be.
