    Troubleshooting Electrical Wiring

    I have your e-book, I got it a couple of years ago and use it for reference all the time. Anyone that does minor electrical work around the home needs this.
    I have a Word document with pics that I would like to email to you. I am asking and looking for troubleshooting advice on a 240 volt circuit. If it is ok with you, I would like to send it.
    Thank you,
