electrified siding ?


You still need to trace where the problem actually is and repair that as well.

Anyway back to the OP.,

Due you allready found the circuit that causing the curpit you will have to look around where the outdoor receptale box { I have see that hook up to the garage couple time before } and look around the siding to see if anything was nailed to the wall that time otherwise you may have to run a new circuit and bypass the old one if you don't really want to take the alumim siding off { they can come off but hard to put it back on neat without kinking it up }

But if you get the Electrician to come out and they can have that circuit run in toner they can able pinpoint pretty close to that area and fix that or other option I know some electricians will do as I mention above all it depending on the set up and did you did put anything up on inside walls ?

Merci.
Marc

Remember one important thing, what was a tingle from one location might be a fatal shock from another. Proceed with caution.

That is true maybe one side will be weak but get to the diffrenet side it will be much stronger so you have to take precaution and treat them as alive until this situation is fixed and just don't delay with it espcally if you have kids around the area.

Merci.

Why? Several posters already told the OP how to proceed with safety in mind, not something that could potentially get them hurt like you did.

BTW your reply cut and paste button is stuck. This is the same reply as here, pg.2.

The circuit (garage circuit here) daisy chains through various receptacles and lights like any other circuit. You might want to go ahead and choose a light or receptacle and disconnect the hot wire there. Now turn the power back on for a few minutes and make note of what things on the circuit are now dead and whether the siding is stiill alive. Now if the siding is still alive, turn off the circuit and disconnect the hot wire from another of the lights or receptacles that were still alive, etc. This way you can narrow down on the span of wire that is shorted to the siding.
