In the Spring I installed a sub-panel in a ladie's condo. There was no way to get a 20-amp, 240 volt circuit for an electric wall oven out of her old fuse panel.The existing panel was on a shared 100-amp riser with the apartments above and below her.
I first suggested she should not re-arrange her kitchen and go back to a standard gas range. She insisted on a gas cooktop and separate electric oven. "There has to be a way you can help me, Pat".
Thus, the sub-panel.
I reasoned that the oven only drew about 8 or 9 amps and that would be less power draw on the riser than some of the new vacum cleaners out now.
......Fuses blow, investigations by the building management, I go back and un-install the sub-panel at no charge.
Now she wants her $850.00 back for the original install.
Should I send her a check or fight?
Power to the people
