Wiring Connections for Wall Outlets
Electrical Wiring: I’m trying to figure out what is wrong with some outlets.
- There are five outlets and a light on the same breaker.
- The light and one outlet work but the other four do not.
- They worked about an hour before I replaced them with new outlets.
Any help would be awesome!

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.
