There are 4 wires in the box. All of them are black.
Three go to the wires entering the box. One is connected to a screw on
the back of the metal box.
Since black wires are all supposed to always go to the brass colored
screw on the outlet, I connected all four of them to them screwes. It
was hard getting all 4 of them to stay under the two brass screws. I
finally got all of them on the outlet and now the fuse keeps blowing. I
even used a bigger fuse. The original was a 15, I used a 30. I cant
find any 50 or larger size fuses. I know a bigger one would probably
work. Where can I buy larger fuses? The hardware store dont have them.
I wired it as it's supposed to be. It clearly says on the website all
black wires go to brass color screws. Anyhow, I put a penny under the
fuse and there was a puff of smoke from the outlet and now there is no
power at all in the hole house.
This is pissing me off. Right before Easter and we got no power in the
hole fucking house. I'm trying to get drunk, and the fucking wife keeps
bitching. Guess I say fuck it and fuck her. Its time to go to the bar.
She's the one who blew out that outlet anyhow with all her fucking
electric cooking shit. Especually that damn big ham cooker thing. Let
he fix it.
Think i'll spend easter in the bar.
