6 Gauge Wire Junction Box - I pushed the yellow nm-b 12/2 cable go into reverse into the cabinet bottom to the basement crawlspace to mount the junction container to the drywall anchors with two screws. It become awkward attempt due to the fact the dishwasher copper water pipe and % drain pipe had been inside the way. I hooked up the metal junction field to the drywall anchors with two screws (see yellow lines), then held the outlet box against the drywall in a convenient area where it is able to be reached to plug inside the hot water dispenser cord, checked it with a bubble degree, marked and set drywall anchors (see crimson square). What a ache doing this in such cramped quarters!.
The nm-b 12/2 cable is fed via the double snap lock connector, then the snap lock is then pressed at the quit of the flex conduit till it’s completely seated. The wires and snap lock connector are inserted in the outlet box 1/2 inch knockout and the connector snapped in region. The sigma double snap lock connector is a virtually neat device. Iaw nec 314.16 (b) (1) exception: an device grounding conductor or conductors or now not over 4 fixture wires smaller than 14 awg, or each, will be authorized to be unnoticed from the calculations wherein they input a field from a domed luminaire or comparable cover and terminate inside that box.
Certainly that container has a complete of 6 wires. It has two neutral, hot, and two ground. There's one long and one quick floor. The quick floor is twisted onto the long floor that's routed thru the twist ground connector. Now one big mistake is that there are honestly only four conductors within that box. The switch field shown has a complete of eight "wires" — one for each of the four insulated wires, for the switch, one for all the bare floor wires, and one for the cable clamps. The jumper cord does no longer matter as a conductor. You'd need a 3x2x3-half of-inch tool box in case you had been wiring with 12-gauge cord.
I marked and set drywall anchors in the drywall at the back of the kitchen cupboard to mount the junction container. Right here’s a complete view of the beneath kitchen sink junction box and outlet:.
