Reconnecting a circuit, and tips for this?


Greetings!

I need to reconnect the capped orange wire on the lower left, to the 3rd circuit breaker.

I'm going to turn off the main power.

Then it look like I just unscrew it, slide the cable in, and rescrew. Similar to doing a light switch.

Is that all their is to it?

Any tips or anything else I should know?

Never reconnect a wire to a breaker if you did not remove it.
You have no idea what was on the mind of the person that worked on it before you did.

Call them back and let them install the wire, otherwise you could have something blow up in your face!

Has the problem with the lift pump been fixed?
