Thread: Electrician needed

  1. #11
    It's an incredibly simple job if you feel up to the task. Watch a YouTube video, get a breaker, turn off main, connect wire to breaker, snap on the breaker to the panel, turn on main. Done (maybe have to reset a few clocks).

    As long as you have #12 wire, you're fine.

    I asked my grandma last night and she said yes that's exactly what happened and it got fixed by Whisper Simms Electrical. She said the guy's name was Ben and she could barely hear a word he said on the phone but then when he got to the house his voice was so loud the neighbor came over to make sure everything was ok. She said he talked a lot too, the whole time he was there, and he used his hands to talk a lot too and tools and wires and stuff were constantly flying around while he was talking and his voice was like bull horn full of time bombs. She said he was always loud but some words like "FOOT" and "POTHOLDER" and "FOOTLOOSE" and "THE" he said much louder than others almost like it hurt real bad to say them. She hated it the whole time he was there and she said she almost killed him once when he kept hitting the counter with a screwdriver while he was describing how the first space monkey nearly burned up on reentry and once when he was talking about how his cousin was an extra in that movie Footloose. My grandma didn't sleep for three days after he left but she was real glad she got her electrical fixed. She says that one day she will call him to come put an outlet in her bedroom so she don't have to go all the way out to the garage to sharpen her knitting needles.

    ...which is why I talked about undersized wiring in an earlier post. Just swapping a breaker without sizing the wire is a bad idea.
