14g on 20a kitchen circuit
Old house. Kitchen circuit is on 20 amp breaker (feeds outlets on countertops, fridge, lighting). Noticed 14g wire on this breaker at lightswitches, assuming the outlets are the same.
Im assuming there no scenario when this is acceptable?
Is the fix as easy as downsizing to a 15 amp breaker?
Is there something I am missing here? Any harm in doing so?
Was my house wired before this became a code violation (1959)?
