Here's some photo's of a home that a new homeowner was just moving into today! He called because one of the ceiling fans wouldn't operate & a couple outlets didn't work.. I asked if he'd had a "home inspection" prior to sale & stated he did!!!! [Linked Image] I can't believe someone could miss all these things! Time to play, "Name that code violation!!!" [Linked Image]

Well, the generally accepted "Bends equal to five times the conductor of cable diameter" (discounting IGS or other esoteric types) rule is right out the window...

Nice flying splices...

And that pesky "support withing 12" rule"? I suppose that bent-over EMT strap will suffice, huh?

Great pics, Randy!

Thanks Doug! [Linked Image] I always wondered how you were supposed to get those big fan controller units to fit... You 86 the box & just use the tension bar from a fan support kit! [Linked Image]

The emt strap is not so hot, but look at the nail hole in the 2nd & 3rd pics!! Right next to where they don't have a box.
This must be his other way of strapping NM cable [Linked Image]
Is that a 2 screw connector terminating the LT flex in the 1st pic?

Scott,
I think its a rigid compression connector, or else its just missing the piece that threads into the LT & the plastic ring that fits on the outside of the LT flex [Linked Image] It's half falling out of this connector even though the pic doesnt show it very well...

LMAO I completely spaced on the Zinsco handleties.. I actually took the photo with the "more than 6 disconnects/no main breaker" violation in mind!
Good eye Norcal! [Linked Image]

In the last picture, is that a flourescent light fixture ballast?


Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Electikid,

It's an add-on remote control unit for a ceiling fan.
