    Really? Where was this, a museum?

    Before the modern plastic romex of today wires had a plastic insulation but were wrapped in a fabric over coat, commonly called snake skin as it has a silver scale appearence.

    check and make sure your main feeds are secure into the breaker box. I had the issue you describe and one of the lines in wasnt tightened all the way. It fucked up lots of shit and caused breakers to trip when 220 was running through 110 wires causing shit to burn up. Included garage door openers, lights, etc.

    replace the batteries in your smoke detectors. Everything will be fine. Sleep well.

    Loose neutral.

    I've known a few electricians to do that to someone when pissed. It'll fuck up any 120v device that's plugged in at the time.

    I am an electrician on aircraft, not a house i know but electrical theory is still the same no matter where your applying it. And most of you are morons. You don't cut wires off cause u think they're not necessary, and rodent damage is unlikely cause your wiring should be inside metal sleeving. And there's no such thing as "neutral" in electrical wiring, your thinking of a ground, which is necessary to complete any circuit. Which is why your asshole friends fuck up people's things by not attaching it properly, cause electricity will find its way to ground one way or another.

    Maybe things are very, very different in the US, but household wiring rarely has a metal sleeve and always has a neutral.

    Yeah Mav, we'll call on you when we need help with aircraft wiring. There is a "neutral" in home wiring:



    Electrically, it is no different than ground. It is actually the centertap of a 3-phase transformer.

    It's ironic that this is the most retarded post in this whole thread.

    Of course you knew the answer.
