~ there is a plug on the ceiling in my basement that wont work.
~ three heavy gage wires go into the junction box.
~ and I have no idea what-the-fuck it means...
~ the drawing above shows that:
- all three wires and the plug are grounded,
- white from wire three joins with the blacks from the other two in one of those twisty things...

~ CABLE TWO goes to another plug that WORKS!!
Does this wiring look ... right?

NOTE: I replaced the plug... The plug works.
