I should have taken a picture, but I did not.
State of Maine Inspector comes on my Project to inspect the Dump Waiter, and everything is fine and will get a certificate of use, with an execption.
On the back wall of the rated assembly of the elevator in the kitchen side a control box was mounted on the wall that was about 16" wide x 18" high x 8" deep.
To the side of this and between the control box and the wall, a 30 amp disconnect was installed 16" from the wall corner.
The disconnect is only 5" thick.
The violation, the disconnect needs 30" in horizontal distance with no obstructions.
The disconnect was only 13" away from the controller and the controler was 8" deep. So, we had to make a wood box to remount the disconnect 3" out so it was flush with the other one and now it is legal.
Do you believe this bullsh#t. This is ridiculous. The intent is to prevent someone from doing the same thing with an electrical enclosure that is two to three feet against the wall.
Paul, can you educate me on this one, or anyone else?
Thanks, We get a new one everyday. Amazing. ha. ha.
