So I noticed that this issue only happens because I am placing the 2nd row plank overlapping 2 planks in the 1st row (staggering the location of the seams)

The model number of the A/C is 561CJ036-E.

I did look up the compressor model # on this website...

Yes, you guys are right, all grounds should be tied together. The faulted ungrounded conductor will be the only ungrounded conductor with any fault current and will only trip that breaker.

Seems like it is permitted by the Code, but maybe not required. I still think there would be an issue of multiple breakers tripping or even the wrong breaker tripping first.

Hmm, doesn't 250.148 refer to conductors of the same circuit that are, say, entering and leaving a box? The words "associated with those circuit conductors" has me thinking that if we are talking...

A bathroom has not been allowed to be on the same circuit as bedrooms for as long as I can remember. Are you sure you only have one 15 amp circuit going to the upstairs? If so, you have multiple...

I would say that connecting the grounds of two circuits violates 250.120(C) of the NEC, which I believe states that the equipment grounding conductor must be run in the same raceway(or cable) as the...

The rails are already connected together, so just connect to one rail. You're right this is very rarely done. But if lightning is taking out the opener due to close strikes, that is when it is done.

Do you know what load(s) are on that circuit? That might give you a clue as to the amount of current on it. If you really want to know if the wiring is a problem on the circuit, you can hire an...

Some voltage is probably being induced on the wires in the bedroom resulting in a false positive. It is commonly called phantom voltage. Once an actual load is placed on the circuit, the voltage...

Just a guess, but if you only have only one "hot" leg, I bet your load was originally enough to trip the main breaker, but the branch breaker maybe tripped faster than the main breaker. In this...

You could be feeling voltage drop on the utility neutral. With the way the NEC requires grounding and bonding to be done, you are literally connecting the pool ground to the utility neutral. I...

Is there a set of switches at the pole with the sign? If so, it probably means that there are two circuits that meet up there. Those circuits are from different sources and are out of phase with...
