Hello Friends, A friend told me I might be a able to get some help. Last night I was replacing a broken outlet in my basement for UN-related reasons and found something little strange (to me). While everything else was fed by 14/2 awg, One outlet was run from it using 12/2 awg. I was wondering if this is legit or If I should rip out the 12/2 and replace it with 14/2.
Here is a rough graphic trying to explain what I mean and I'm hoping you nice folks can help me keep this up Code.
