[ :: this is a shitty drawing of the wiring problem :: ]
~ 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...
~ the black from wire three goes into the plug.
~ the whites from cable 1 and 2 go into a twisty thing and a white comes out of that and goes into the plug.
~ CABLE TWO goes to another plug that WORKS!!
Does this wiring look ... right?
NOTE: I replaced the plug... The plug works.
