comment 100 amp panel in my garage
Installing underground feeders and electrical panels in separate buildings, is far more complex than simply digging a ditch, dropping in conduit, and pulling some wires.

revised Can I use these replacement ballast even though the yellow wires are on the opposite end?

comment 100 amp panel in my garage
This question is a bit broad. There's a lot that goes in to installing and feeding an electrical panel. If you're looking for somebody to explain all of it, you're in the wrong place. If you've run into a bit of a snag while doing the project, we might be able to help. Designing an electrical service is beyond the scope of this site.

Just make sure you tuck the bare wire in away from any uncovered terminals.

Have you checked the wiring diagrams (likely found inside the furnace/air handler/condensing unit, or in the documentation for said equipment)?

Are you sure you're turning it the correct way? Could it be left hand threads?

Is the armored cable in the ceiling the cable that those wires are from, or is it some other cable that just passes by?

comment Home inspection requires exhaust to attic exterior
Sometimes these things are actually required by the bank or the local building department, and must be fixed before the sale can close. The OP is not specific about which stage of the sale process they're in. Since they're saying it's their responsibility to fix it, I'd assume they have not yet closed. Once you close; unless you've built some type of clause into the contract, the seller is no longer responsible for repairs.

comment In a multi-gang box, are neutral wires paired with specific hot wires?
It sounds like you have 4 black, 4 white, and 4 bare/green wires in the box. You don't say what, if any other devices are already in the box. If all the devices are switches, it sounds like you're missing one or more wires. You should post a photo and/or some sketches to make it more clear exactly what's going on. I'm not sure what a Chinese organized crime organization has to do with anything, but if you're in trouble you should contact the authorities.

@Aman you should check with your local building department to make sure they feel the same as you, about your idea.

Not "illegal", just not code compliant.

comment Swapping dishwasher pump
How is the current one wired? Could you post the wiring diagram, so we can see it too? What is the make and model of the dishwasher?

@Aman I don't make the codes, I just follow them. If the product is designed to be cord-and-plug connected, then that's how it should be used. If the manufacturer's instructions specify a hardwired option, then by all means follow the instructions.
