Electric Stove Wiring
Today I was putting some OSB in the attic and I drilled a deck screw into the wire foir the electic range. There was an spark but the breaker did not trip. I turned on the stove and it workedjust fine. I repaired the drill hole by wrapping with electric tape.
Is that safe?? Any suggestions?
If you drew a spark, some of the wires melted. I would either replace the cable or install a proper J box and make a splice. If this sounds like a lot of work, is you fire insurance up to date.
