This would be better as a comment, but I don't have enough rep to do that. When your garage was remodeled, was the garage door taken off? Looking at the latches that @beswald mentioned, it looks like the door was removed in segments, and the segment with the latches was reinstalled upside down. The latches appear to be below center in that section. You can ...

At this stage you can only try to keep it from getting worse. heaving is caused by the freeze thaw cycle. You can either keep the area warm or keep it dry. Often neither is practical. Keeping it dry requires figuring out how water gets to the area below the concrete and stopping that flow. Water is very clever, and may be moving in after getting in ...

You might as well use that conduit for all it's worth A 3/4", schedule 80 PVC conduit is capable of holding 3 6AWG stranded THWN wires and a 10AWG stranded bare copper ground, good for 60A. Considering that your 12/3 cable is likely to be a harder pull down that conduit, both because it's a cable (vs individual wires) and because UF at that size is made ...

You can't make breakers trip preferentially... Your stated goal is to have the breaker in the garage trip before the breaker in the house. That isn't going to work. Breakers do not work that way (unless the breaker in the house is Federal Pacific, sorry, inside joke there, those are notorious for tripping way too late, but that's not a desirable feature). ...

Judging from what I read, you are running a 240v circuit to your garage for a sub panel in the garage, right ? I'm thinking that is your intent... If that is indeed your intent, for something that small ( 2ea 20Amp circuits will run those items fine, btw ) then get a 4 space panel and install another 2-pole 240v breaker which will be a additional main in ...

Start out by cleaning out the drain. You're going to have to pull that junk up and out and avoid shoving it down any further. Once it's unclogged, plug it with a rag to prevent more stuff from falling into it. Chisel out the remains of the drain grate and what appears to be the packing between the pipe and the outside ring. Get a few bottles of concrete ...

Without reading all the linked manuals, I will try to answer your question. Control circuits come in a few forms, but two major types are "input voltage" and "contact closure". For instance, for a typical air conditioner to turn on, you need to apply 24 volts across the terminals for its relay to make it turn on. This voltage is supplied by an external ...

After some further troubleshooting, it turned out that the control board was fried and had to be replaced.

Please refer to above image. The "top" adjustment is for the UP (open) travel limit switch for the door... To lengthen the up travel, ( more "up" ) turn the slotted screw adjustment to the right. To shorten the up travel, turn the slotted screw adjustment the left. The "bottom" adjustment is for the DOWN (close) travel limit switch for the door... To ...

If it's cord-and-plug, you need a GFCI breaker... If you are cord-and-plug connecting your EV charger, then you'll need a 50A GFCI breaker instead of the regular breaker as per 2017 NEC 625.54 (as specified in TIA-70-17-2): 625.54 Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupter Protection for Personnel. All single-phase receptacles installed for the connection of ...
