Thank you for the chart and reminder about the FV fuse. I checked ours and yes, it has a 4 amp fuse and 16 guage wire. I looked at it! (thought it should have paper work with it, though) Since the motor is protected by its own 4 amp fuse, would it be ok to wire the FV into a 15 amp circuit? Somewhere I recall that motors should NOT be fused with a fuse with larger capacity than the motor...in case motor freezes, continues to run, overheats etc....
But, with its own fuse, the motor can isolate from the circuit it is wired to in case of an overload or freeze--right? Or should I play safe and just put the motor on its own circuit??
electricity is "pulled" by the appliances...not "pushed" by the mains.........
