hot box


Recommended Posts

Ah yes, the old hot-wire-touching-the-sheath-of-BX-cable-that-lacks-a-bonding-strip trick.


The clamp was loose and wouldn't tighten. The clamp has probably been loose for many years and stepped on dozens of times causing the deterioration of the insulation. Hot touches bx casing.......

I had to remove 6" of bx casing to get good insulation on the conductors. Fortunately there was enough slack to do so.

I then installed a new clamp that actually tightened all the way. "Fired" it back up!
