My dining room remodeling project hit a bit of snag today and would like some of your input into my lastest dilema. I had my electrician come in a couple of weeks ago and he rewired my entire room. Everything was great, until during construction I inadvertantly punctured the insulation of a wire that was running under my staircase. Totally bone-head move, I know... (believe it or not I was actually being careful...)
Anyway, the this line is the last in the run and comes and is run from a an outlet. I guess I have a few questions:
- Is this currently a dangerous situation. The recepticle that this line runs from is currently not hooked up. (Everything connected in the box via wirenuts)
- Is my only option, to rerun this line? I have just put up new sheetrock, and would like to not have to rip anything up.
I have attached some pics to help you fellas diagnose. The overview shows the run, and the closeup shows the damage.
Since it will eventually be behind the wall, I don;t want to take any chances, but on the otherhand if a little electrical tape works, great.
Not really too keen on electric, but I cando some basics and understand for the most part how things operate, but also know when to call the professionals.
Actually Just tried to Post my pics and I am not allowed to, that is funny I have posted pics in the past
