How to wire a 3 way switch: http://youtu.be/7smZbyBSVTg

and Google.com has a lot of pictures and info....


for the most part it's a simple system, that requires three wires, one Hot or Common wire, and two traveler wires,
On one end of the three way the common is the light or wire that goes to the light, two travelers to the next three way switch that usually has power as the common wire... hope this helps?
If not contact me, I can walk you threw the process... thanks

At a home improvement store I purchased a book on electrical wiring. It had diagrams and the info you need. Don't try and do wiring unless you can read and follow directions from a manual, or get hands on help from someone that is experienced in electrical circuits. Conversational directions are not sufficient, unless you are a very capable do it yourselfer.

You can but why not get a new breaker first. Once into the panel and you're done.

An electric brake draws a lot of power. You will need to connect directly to the battery and typically use a 30 amp breaker.

Pretty easy if you can get the wires from the existing wall outlet. Just run a wire from existing outlet to the where you want the new light. Install inside an approved ceiling electrical outlet box and then run another wire to where you want the switch or switches. If you go to home depot or the library you can look at the books with diagrams on how to wire it. You can skip the wall switch if you use a light with a pull chain.

you said it yourself. when an electrical device is running it produces amps, with every amp is a unit of heat. breakers are heat sensitive as well. so you might want to consider a new breaker. newer breakers are made out of better materials that are able to displace heat more efficiently. or check to make sure the screws on the terminals where the wires go in are tight. if there is a loose connection that will increase the units of heat traveling through the termination. or, worse case scenario, like when all hope is lost. splice in some more wire, correctly, emphasis on correctly, and relocate the breaker. perhaps use insulation around the breaker, non flammable of course.

lament term is relay bounce. that's one. another could be that the line side of the contact is fed by parallel lines causing something called eddie current causing an unbalanced load. you may not have all of the terminals where the wires terminate tight, that will cause heat to build up at the contact. you could be using the wrong contactor for that particular application. check the life cycles, not the amperage rating. then again, check the amperage rating for contactor, then look at the device and what are the specs for that. if it runs at a higher ampacity than the contactor will burn up every time. are there thermal overloads on the contactor. if so, what are their rating........ these in fact are all valid questions I just asked you, and I can keep going, for days. you have to give more specifics than that, otherwise anyone who knows electricity will never be able to give you an accurate diagnoses. I'm more than willing to help though. it even comes down to the manufacture who makes the contact. sometimes you want a certain name brand for a certain application.

Here is a sample of how to wire a winch. I have built my own box with relays to swap the power for reverse etc I'm not sure if you have to buy an extra kit where someone has done the work for you or not. It looks neater when purchased. Click here

On newer furnaces the fan starts in a period of time factory set and is initiated by the control board. The air conditioning fan is started by the thermostat and starts right away when the stat calls for cooling. You will need a tech. familiar with this model and carrying the right parts to look it over. Does the furnace fire and then shut off in a few minutes? If so, it is most likely to be the board. Sorry. It may be pricy.
