Doorbell transformer inside panel (at bottom)


I write this up all of the time and get laughed at by all of the local electricians. A couple of the sparkies on this board even gave me grief for it.

Just wanted to let you know you are allowed to use 15A receps on a 20A circuit as long as there is more than one recep installed on the circuit.


The extra length in the leads are right to although not done very neat you are suppost to leave a service loop. but you are right it looks real bad.

The problem with the transformer inside the panel is you do not separate the 725 class 2 wiring from line voltage. It will go in a 1/2" K/O.


He could easily fix the ground problem with a supplimental bus and a 250.66 sized wire to the grounded bus.


One of the mounting holes for this bus is visible below the existing bus.


This looks like a typical homeowner service upgrade. An electrician could clean this thing up in less than an hour with about $5 worth of parts.


$10 if he added another breaker and split up the double lugged load on the bottom left breaker.
