I am not a handy-man. In fact, if I am actually the guy who keeps guys like this in business. In the course of life I break a lot of things and some of my friends fix a lot of things. Every now and then I get the urge to get a taste of the glory. I reach for some tools and attempt to get things done. Recently I felt such an urge in our kitchen. After my wife put in a lot of work remodeling I decided I could rewire the outlets. In theory it really wasn’t that hard. I actually got it done and a few of the outlets even work. But there is this one outlet that is, well, not working. On one side the outlet for a plug-in simply doesn’t work. On the other side the switch for the light works. In fact, it works so well that the light does not shut off, no matter how many times you flip the switch (or ask it nicely).
I am confident that I have narrowed down the problem. The issue resides in the wiring.
