The wire cord on my refrigerator is leaking electricity. I keep
seeing electric dripping to the floor and it sparks when it hits the
floor. I put some plunbers puddy on the wire but it still dripped
out. Then I tried cauck and that did not work either. Today I
wrapped duck tape on it but it still drips. The sparks are making the
floor rot where they drip. What can I do to stop this?
Also, sometimes the discrete logic flip-flop circut can overload the 10
cajillion picofarad capaictor that is wired in parallel with the
compressor. This can often cause excessive backpressure in the
polarized electrical ions, which can leak out through the strain relief
and often can end up causing the problem you speak of.
As most people recommend electricians putty, which can be a good short
term fix, the way i would approach it is to partially remove the plug
from the wall and connect the two pins with a butterknife. This will
purge the excessive backpressure of the ions causing the leak to slow.
After that i would attempt to tip the refrigerator over onto yourself,
although this would not allow me to post these types of responses....
Except that that won't work, since, as we all know, all the electricity
you collect under the fridge will be *static* electricity. You have to
take it to your local power company and have them run it through one of
their substations to turn it into normal juice.
Just as McDonald\'s is where you go when you\'re hungry but don\'t really
care about the quality of your food, Wikipedia is where you go when
