comment Hooking up a 50A hot tub breaker to a 60A subpanel
"if the tub really does pull 50A and you have it on at the same time as other devices in the garage which at taking more than 10A then the 60A breaker will trip." Should say "if the tub really does pull 50A, and you have it on at the same time as other devices in the garage which are taking more than 10A for long enough then the 60A breaker will trip." Breakers trip based on their trip curves. Momentarily drawing more current than the breaker is rated for, may not instantly trip the breaker.

comment Why do the evaporator and suction lines freeze when there is low refrigerant?
The refrigerant does not turn to vapor simply by passing through the metering device. It turns to vapor when it absorbed heat from the air moving over the evaporator. Less refrigerant just means it takes less warm air to boil the refrigerant. Which means the air moving over the evaporator doesn't get as cold.

comment How do I wire a GFCI switch/outlet receptacle?
If I covered every possible scenario in my answers, I'd have to write a book for each. Unless there's a reported problem, I have to assume the wiring was correct.

@MichaelKaras well... If you're switching the neutral, then you don't have a "hot" in the box. So either way, you're up shits creek without a wire.

@MichaelKaras You're saying that they potentially switched the neutral?
