Hey, which electrician did you consult? Electricians do a variety of work in the home and in commercial premises to ensure the electrical installation operates efficiently. They also operate to the correct electricity standards and measures. We are also facing the same problem and are planning to hire electrician NJ as they are experts in dealing with such situations.

I cannot say that I've ever done this or known anyone who has, however, I found this helpful step by step on the internet from someone who says it's relatively easy and can be very cost effective:

For most gensets, simply changing the orifice and a few adjustments will allow the conversion.

Here are links with instructios and video:

If you do not know what you are doing, hire someone who does!

Arc faults can trip easily.  "Updated the electrical" is a broad term.  It is hard to judge if this is substandard work without knowing the scope of work or if permits were obtained.  Did they have permits and inspections?  If the work was permitted and completed poorly, you may have some other options of how to proceed if the electrician remains unresponsive.

You definitely want to make sure the person is licensed and that they obtain the proper permits for this.  Most "discount" electric panel change-outs are not done well or properly.  Proper licensing and permitting will protect you.  Try to be home when the inspector comes or contact your municipality directly to verify the inspection was done.  Do this BEFORE paying in full.

I'm actually not seeing a wire sticking out of the wall to connect to (in either picture).  There should be a wire sticking out somewhere, unless they also clipped that off, or stuffed it behind the window.  Also, did they leave behind the other half of the sensor?  As others said, wireless may be an option if all else fails in your scenario.

Sid, a local electrician should be able to do the work and thanks to their licensing and continuing education, they will certainly know the answer! Good luck.

Definitely use the LED bulbs but be sure that they are dimmable. The light output is much, much better than any other type of bulb. I know that they are more expensive but the CFL-type bulbs burn out much too quickly.
