Electrical Help - Splitting a receptacle
Calling all electricians!! This is a call for help outside the regular topic of AS trailers, but maybe will come in handy for someone.
We are in the process of trying to change (in our home) what was an electrical outlet with 2 plugs & 1 wall switch set together in 1 box into 1 switch & the 2 outlet plugs separated onto different places on the wall. Unfortunately, we separated everything before discovering that the white wire for the switch is a hot wire & now the circuit breaker keeps tripping. Can any of you help tell us how to get back to square 1 & discover the hot wire? We are a bit intimidated here!!! I think Price said there are 2 cables w/6 wires total. Would a testing device help? What kind? What a mess!!!!!
