+1 -- looks more like you would see in a shed and not a garage, exposed junction box, romex instead of conduit, light gauge 'exposed' wires, etc., etc. -- unless you're the original homeowner, I'd be surprised that this stuff was overlooked in a simple home purchase inspection as it certainly would need to be upgraded properly. Depending on what you run on your 100A service (A/C, water heater, stove, dryer, etc.) you might be able to forego the upgrade to 200A but only say if your main electric use is minimal and the water heater, stove and dryer run on gas instead. When we moved into our house years ago we had a newer electric dryer with us but the former owner had a gas one and that was enough for us to need to upgrade to 200A so perhaps its time with the EVSE to have this done right; I'd certainly sleep better at night (you don't want to add to the controversy surrounding EV garage fires!) and it will increase the resale value of your house as well!EVDRIVER wrote:Your panel is not 100W it's 100A, possibly. Based on the very old black wire and the junction box I suggest you unplug the EVSE and increase your insurance coverage. I see multiple issues with your installation and the previous wiring. Before you burn down your house I suggest you unplug that and get someone qualified to inspect your entire garage if not your home. You have multiple hazards waiting to happen on that wall, looks like a classic fire hazard, I'm not being sarcastic.
The second sentence is incorrect. You are clearly in a "learning" stage. Nothing wrong with that, except that you have crucial facts wrong. I am not trying to be de-structively critical here, but I must point out (again) that you need a licensed electrician. And that's my constructive criticism. Listen to everyone here that have already pointed this out multiple times.yorkhung wrote:I think the suspect is the Water Heater Controller, if it draws max 9A, it would trip the circuit as Leaf 16A + 9A = 25A.
30A circuit breaker will only allow max current of 24A for continuous usage.
This is very good advice. Hopefully it will be taken to heart.EVDRIVER wrote:Before you burn down your house I suggest you unplug that and get someone qualified to inspect your entire garage if not your home.
