How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

There are three screw terminals on the body of the switch, in addition to the green grounding screw. One screw, known as the common, is a darker color than the others. The other two screws, usually a lighter brass color, are known as the traveler terminals.
The other wires in a circuit with 3-way switches are the neutral (usually white) and ground (usually bare copper or green). The neutral wire bypasses both 3-way switches but connects to the light fixture. The ground connects to the ground terminal on each switch and to the light fixture.
They are wired so either switch can work the light, regardless of the setting of the other. A 3-way switch is larger than a single pole switch and has three screw terminals for wiring connections, plus a ground. Two of these take traveler wires that go from one switch to the other.
The only appropriate way to wire a receptacle in a box with three cables is to use pigtails to connect the receptacles. ​Never connect more than one wire under a single screw terminal when adding an electrical outlet to an existing line.
1 Way Switches: If a light switch is `1 way` this means it is just an on/off switch. This is the simplest type of switch that you can get. The single switch controls a single light (or lighting circuit). 2 Way Switches: A `2 way` switch means there is another switch controlling the same light.
Three-conductor wire has two hots — black and red — and a white neutral. Though normally used for three-way switching, three-conductor wire is commonly used for duplex receptacle wiring as well.
To an Engineer: A “neutral” is a current-carrying conductor that carries the unbalanced current in 3 phase systems, and is intentionally connected to the ground. In North America, the neutral is color-coded white or gray for easy identification (see image below).
“Three-way” means that there are three components in the circuit – two switches and the light(s). And there are three switch terminal screws inside the switch. If there are three or more switches controlling the same light(s), they are called four-way switches – more on those later.
As a rule, we must always install 3-way switches in pairs, and then as many 4-way switches as necessary. For example, if a light is to be controlled from four different locations we would need two 3-way switches and two 4-way switches.
The plug contains three wires – the live, neutral and earth wires. In a plug, the live wire (brown) and the neutral wire (blue) are the two wires that form the complete circuit with a household appliance. The earth wire (green and yellow) does not normally form part of the circuit and is included as a safety wire.
A three prong plug is designed so that electricity can be safely supplied to electrical appliances. The third prong grounds the electricity to protect anyone who uses the metal-encased appliance from electric shock.
Wiring a One Way Switch

The other terminal is marked as L1 and is the output to the light fixture. When you`re wiring decorative light switches such as chrome or stainless steel etc, you`ll find that the switch will also have an L2 terminal which means it`s a two way switch.

Double pole switches are connected to two separate electric circuits. They essentially contain 2 switches which are linked together and can complete the circuit either simultaneously or staggered.
It will have one terminal in and 2 terminals out. Each terminal on a SPDT switch has a name. The input terminal is called Common. The output terminals are called Normally-Open and Normally-Closed.

I need to replace to fuel lines on a Craftman 32cc trimmer. The old ones cracked apart. 2 of the lines look like 1/8″ OD one line looks like 3/32″ OD. Larger line looks like it hooks to filter, Smaller line to a fitting in the gas tank. I am assuming the smaller line ges to the primer inlet. My question is the lines penetrate the bottom of the gas tank. How do they seal. How do I install the filter and the fitting. I am assuming to thread the new lines in from the bottom of the tank and pull through the gas cap hole. Then I attach filter or fitting and pull back through. So do I pull the line so as to create a seal from the swell caused by the fitting/filter?
ANSWER : Depending on the brand of line you use, Tygon line is self sealing but seems to shrink faster then factory supplied because of the ethanol in the gas. The stone gas filter is designed to fall to the lowest part of the tank, not stop the line from falling out.

Need to replace fuel lines on my Troy Bilt gas hedge trimmer. Where can I get replacement fuel lines… or better yet… what size are the lines and where can I buy a few feet of the lines. Note: I have reviewed the parts assembly and it would seem to indicate I have to replace the entire handle assembly (Part #1) instead of just buying replacement hose(s). Any help to resolve my issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance
ANSWER : Replacement fuel lines should be readily available at your local lawnmower repair shop. Your TroyBilt hedger uses fuel line that is 3/32″ (2.4mm) interior dimension, 3/16″ (4.8mm) outside dimension, with a 3/64″ (1.2mm) wall dimension.
Most manufacturers don’t offer replacement line, only fuel tank assemblies. Find your local shop, and try to get the TYGON brand…it is yellow. Tygon lasts the longest. You should be able to buy it by the foot for less than $2 per foot. You will need 2 feet of hose to replace both lines.

Make sure to clean the in-tank filter when replacing hoses.

Good luck.
