Electrical question about: Troubleshooting
Received from a Homeowner in Birmingham NY
Question: I had a wire nut with 3 wht 18 ga wires “pop” (melted and broke all at once). The other 2 wire nuts were fine. None were close to anything (not even each other) there was less than 500 watts ever used on that line and the wires weren’t loose. What could cause that?

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
