I recently purchased my house and I have a few questions.
The breaker trips each time the vacuum is used. It looks like the previous owner has most of the house wired on to a 15 amp breaker (AC/ Furnace, living room, bathroom, and half the basement). Is that correct?
Should I put any of those on a dedicated circuit?
I included a few pictures for reference. I tried to label as much as I could figure out but there are a few mystery breakers.
After looking at it more carefully:
So it looks like the 30 amp breaker with the 14 gauge wire is to the garbage disposal.
The AC is wired the a double pole 20 amp with 14 gauge wire.
The two single pole 15 amp on the bottom right (red and black) are spliced together (wire nuts) to two wires coming from the same metal conduit.
Ground and neutral wires are connected to the same bus bar in the same slot.
These things seem odd to me...
