Electrical Question from Jim about 220 Volt Wiring Diagram
Received from Jim a Homeowner in Bordentown, NJ
Question: When I turn on my upstairs bedroom ceiling fan, the light inside of my dining room hutch goes on. The light switch on the hutch is a hidden switch in the door hinge…you just touch the door hinge to turn the lights off & on. Is there any type of static plug I can buy. Everything is grounded correctly….home is less than 10 years old.
Thanks for your electrical question.

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.
