No power to recepticle neither the switch


I'd first check if someone incorrectly wired a single half switched receptacle. To do this, you're going to need to check the outlets for a hot and then determine how the circuit is run through the walls for the switch.

Turn off the switch and check outlets to see if there's still a hot connection anywhere. I'd try with a non-contact tester first, and if that fails, shutoff the power, pull the receptacle and wiring out of the affected outlets to make them more accessible, and turn the power back on to test again.

If you locate an unswitched hot in an outlet, disconnect the receptacle from the wiring with the breaker turned off, and then turn the breaker back on to identify the switched hot wire (toggle the switch on and off to see what wire toggles with it). If other outlets show no power when the receptacle is disconnected and the switch is on, you've got all the wires there to change the receptacle to 1/2 switched (broken off tab between the hot terminals) with the...

Installing a switch receptacle combo is incredibly easy and anyone can do it. As with any electrical project, make sure the power is turned off to the circuit you are planning on working on before you begin the project. This guide is meant to be an overview of the process. If at any time you are unsure of any procedure or do not feel safe consult a professional.

What is a switch receptacle combo?

A switch receptacle combo is a single pole switch AND a regular receptacle that takes up the same amount of space as a regular duplex receptacle outlet. There are a couple distinct advantages of installing a switch receptacle combo such as space savings and increased function. It can be installed in almost every location in your home where a standard non GFCI duplex receptacle already exists. Or, like me, you can install one in an extension cord for use with mobile tools.

For this demonstration I will be installing a switch receptacle combo in a single gang...

Matrix-UPS is not providing any output power to the receptacles on the rear of the UPS.

Product Line





There is an ON/OFF circuit breaker switch located on the back plate of the Matrix-UPS IU (Isolation Unit, lower half of the Matrix-UPS) just above the NEMA L14-30 receptacle. This breaker controls the UPS output to the L14-30 receptacle (as well as the NEMA 5-15 receptacles on the Matrix-UPS 3000 model only). On the Matrix-UPS 5000, this switch controls the L14-30 receptacle only. If the Matrix-UPS is powered on and there is no output to the L14-30 receptacle (or any of the 5-15 receptacles on a Matrix-UPS 3000) check this switch to ensure that it is set to ON (to the right). This symptom is often experienced on a new installation.


Close the breakers to restore power to the receptacles. If the breaker has tripped while the unit was in service, this was due to an...

It's described well enough in the catalog that you ought to be able to figure it out. It's very simple. If you can't figure it out, it will probably end up costing you more to make your own even if you have plans.

You might consider the ethics of publishing plans. Try turning it around. I watch or hear of your performance then I copy your performance and offer the copy to the same market.

At the risk of sounding like an ego maniac, let me explain what I think are and are not my original ideas and what came before and what came after.

Certainly I did not invent the piston and cylinder. They have been around for who knows how long in a huge variety of configurations. A common tire pump uses a vertical cylinder.

Before I made the first High Volume, Low Pressure, Self Standing, Vertical Piston, Manual air pump,...
