0573 Subpanel Wiring Disconnect by Main Panel - Electrical Electricity -

Image Text: This is a better arrangement - the feed is protected against both overload and short circuit > best practice would be to move the stove circuit to the subpanel and use the existing stove fuses for the subpanel (this would eliminate the double-lugging) > distribution panel > 100 amps from service box > stove > main bus bars > 15 amp fuse > neutral bus bar > 8 gauge copper feed wire connected directly to main panel bus bars > 40 amp fused disconnect switch > nail driven into wire causes short circuit, which will blow the disconnect fuses before the feed wire overheats > 8 gauge copper feed wire > 60 amp rated subpanel
