sunny a couple days ago, I had my second electrical fire in the pump control
box. This box is almost like a static three phase convertor. I replaced what
I could, quickly, and fired it back up. The terminal block in the box is
over 200 F though - won't be long before the next fire. (We had rain today -
they'd forecast it all week - almost 0.1 inch)
Anyway, I want to move all the components to a larger box to space things
out. Use copper wire instead of AL and go to a larger guage wire size.
I'm looking for a terminal strip for large guage wire without success. Is
such an animal made? What else can I use for connection of large wires? I
don't know my wire guages but I think its 1 ot.
I'd also like to install a cooling fan in the control box to bring in
outside air. Any reccomendations?
