I dabble with electrical. And generally, I will 'copy' existing wiring so I
don't screw things up too much. I thought I was being very carefull to do
this in this case.
I moved a recepticle through a floor to have an extra plug in my bedroom. I
wrote the wiring scheme of the receptacle down so I could duplicate the
It was a three wire, 12 guage, receptacle. Why its three wires, I don't
The scheme on the back of the receptacle I though was:
Left side Right side
From the fuse box, the black and Red wires were each on its own fuse, ie
both hot....again why, I do not know.
The problem is that the above scheme doesn't work... I can input one fuse,
but when putting in the second, it blows.
Can anyone help me ???
