Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

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 that I use to easily Detect 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.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.

    Wiring a Air Compressor

    Electrical Question: My husbands wired his garage shop with 12 3 wire and had his large alemite compressor hooked up to its own 30amp breaker that worked fine. Then one day it tripped the breaker and he found the capacitor was burnt out.

    Change the Wiring Air Compressor

    Kim asks:
    My husbands wired his garage shop with 12 3 wire and had his large Alemite compressor hooked up to its own 30amp breaker that worked fine.
    Then one day it tripped the breaker and he found the capacitor was burnt out.
    He switched the breaker to a 50amp with a new capacitor and it ran for one day and blew the breaker capacitor again.
    We arent sure why it is burning the capacitor, so instead he is trying to hook his other Husky compressor up, but want to make sure he has the correct gauge wire, circuit breaker amps, etc.
    I have included a picture of all the specifications on each compressor and motor.
    If possible, we would like to know all info related to correctly wire each compressor.
    Thank you so very much for your help!

    Additional Comments: Wonderful information and really REALLY appreciate that it’s available for free cause we are BROKE!

    Wiring a Light Switch

    Electrical Question: 20 year old home. Bathroom with 2 switches (light & fan).

    Install New Wiring Light Switch

    Steve asks:
    20 year old home.
    bathroom with 2 switches (light & fan).
    I am installing a timer switch for the fan which needs neutral wire.
    The box currently has basic switches.
    And 3 white neutral wires twisted together.

    The new timer switch comes with short white wire.
    Is it correct to connect this to the neutral spot on new switch, and the other end to be twisted together to the existing 3 neutral wires.
    Seems to operate correctly after doing, but just want to ensure this is correct safe.
