Hum in Conduit

I posted a question earlier and received a bunch of helpful answers and tried them all and still a hum. I have realized that I am only running
black or "hot" wires in this conduit with the white "neutral" in a seperate conduit. Is it possible that this could cause a hum? Would the white and black cancel each other out. Thanks for any help sorry to bug all of you engineers with such trivial stuff. GGH

Assuming that you are using metal raceways... You are not allowed to run the hots in one conduit and the neutrals in another. This is a violation of the National Electrical Code because doing this will cause the raceways to become inductive heaters. Answering the hum problem is moot until you correct the installation to comply with accepted safety standards.

Bingo!
Yoiu have created a buzzer. The raceways and boxes are a one turn coil.

Hey there gfret etc etc etc. Thank you for the help. Its funny that you were the only one who helped on this. I thought Alt.engineers.electrical.blah.blah.blah would get some serious replies but obviously the rest of these losers aren't serious electricians and are mainly interested in helping losers with speaker wire problems and aimless idiots blathering on about semi-retarded political B.S. regarding NEC fan fare. Your response solved the problem immediately and I have a bit of revived hope for this site and I THANK YOU sincerely.

You come in looking for help, and mis-state the problem, leaving out the critical fact that the neutral and the hot are in separate raceways. Then you label the people who gave you what you originally called helpful answers losers? You might find it beneficial to re-think your position.

143 answers to some idiot asking about speaker wire wrapped around his private area and 2 to a real issue with wiring I have to and correctly assume that the few "helpful" answers I got were misguided babble by morons with nothing better to do than help people with true issues not solve their problems. You included Eddie...go bone up on your NEC and don't answer any more questions.

All of the answers you got to your original post "hum after installing fluorescent bulbs" were appropriate and helpful, on the assumption that the wiring was done according to accepted practice and Code. Nobody who knows what they are doing would run hot and neutral in separate conduits (one can only guess what other fire or safety hazards exist). That was a critical piece of information, and many of us would have immediately recognized that as your problem had you bothered to mention it. You got the two "helpful" answers after you gave all of the facts. Next time, hire a qualified electrician and you won't need to deal with us "losers".

I must of missed your original question. I think you knew your answer to this thread before you asked this question. When I saw the topic I immediately suspected you had run the neutral in a separate metal pipe.
You sound like one ignorant dickead that thinks Usenet owes you answers.
I suggest in the future instead of coming to this group for help you should instead go fuck yourself
