island and under cabinet recep wiring
My electrician ran wiring to the island before the wood floor was installed. Now he is telling me that if I use 2 things at once on the island it will flip the breaker. He knew we were putting a shelf for a microwave there. He knew we also wanted plug mold on each end of the island. He also knew we would use the island as a buffet area so several food warmers or crock pots would be used at the same time.
The island is not in yet, but the floor and huge wall cabinets are in where he ran the electrical wire under the floor. I think he said we could only use 15 amp. I could be wrong.
So what do we do now? I also want a warming drawer in the island. My fault for not telling him on this one.
We are using plug molds under the upper cabinets and ucls. We had planned on direct wire LED lights. Now I am wondering how he is wiring them both with only one wire. Did he forget or is he correct? He installed wall receps so I guess he forgot we were using plug mold. He has had many copies of the specs, but he never uses them or brings them. He works when I am at work. Then if something is done wrong, he charges us again to fix it. If he had looked at the specs he wouldn't have had to redo it.
We told him we cannot afford him any longer and canceled yesterday's work. He texted me back and said okay. Then he showed up the next day to do more work. (He only works hourly and will not give us an estimate or bid.)
Last, plugmolds let you get receps off the backsplash, but what about light switches? Do they stay on backsplash?
