I has a dog chew on my .I'd like to fix it

If the bare wire is not showing, just wrap with black electric tape. If the bare wire is showing then
1. remove the insulation from the two wires about 1 inch on each side of the cut.
2. Go to a hardware store and get some wire nuts (small), twist the two ends together and screw on the wire nut.
3. Do the same thing to the other wire. Now take black electrical tape and tape each wire nut down the wire about 1/2 inch.
4. Tape both wire nuts together with electrical tape and the wire strands to the insulation and up the insulation about 1 inch.

I have a Honeywell commercial grade floor fan that the switch went out on. how can I wire it direct and bypass the switch

Disconnect or cut both wires from the switch. Strip about one half inch of insulation from both wires to expose the bare copper wires. Twist them together using a wire nut cap. Wrap with black electrical tape. You could solder the twisted wires together and then use electrical tape to wrap them too. Either method will work fine.

1997 camry passenger side door damage battery drain

If the left side is hit with a car you might have damage to the cables that run in the floor channels that are below the door when the door is closed the plastic that the door is on when the door is closed. Suggest removing the plastic and checking the cables are not touching other exposed wires or the car body. If they are get insulation tape and wrap on exposed wires.

How do I take Uniden phone off line in use/hold? I cannot use phone at all or receive calls.

It depends on the reason for the in use message on the line. It could be the phone or the wiring. To diagnose the problem, I like to use an old corded phone.

Plug a different phone into the jack (where the cordless base is); use a new telephone cord. Do you have a normal dial tone? If yes, try the cord with the cordless phone's base; if this doesn't solve the problem, then the problem is the phone. If the phone is bad and under warranty, contact Uniden. These phones are really not meant to be serviced by the user.

Otherwise, try the second phone at another extension. If you get a dial tone, then the problem may be the jack where the cordless phone's base is plugged in. Try the cordless phone and see if you still get the message.

If you didn't get a dial tone, find where the phone service comes in. If you have a new install, you will find that your service line uses RJ-11 jacks. Plug your second phone into the jack and check for dial tone. If the phone still doesn't work, call your phone company. There is a problem with the wiring to your location and they will fix it as part of providing the service. Otherwise, the problem is with the wiring inside your home.

For indoor wiring issues, check any exposed wires for damage. Open the wall plate and check for a loose wire. Some will terminate with screws - just loosen the screw, strip more of the strand wire's insulation if needed, wrap it around the screw and tighten carefully. Others will use a keystone jack. Open the cover (just lifts off) and check the strands. You may need to remove the wire, cut it back and strip a new section of the outer insulation. Then using a special tool push each strand fully into the appropriate slot (do not strip the strand insulation). This tool is sold in many hardware stores in the wiring section alongside the keystone jacks. A plastic version is included with many keystones.

If the wiring problem is deeper inside the walls, you may want a professional. Your telephone provider will do this for a fee.

I hope this helps.

(a few weeks ago, we had an open line due to mice eating the wires near the road. It wasn't the first time for the problem. We've also lost a dial tone due to a failed filter for the DSL after a lightning strike and when a road crew dug up the wire by accident.)

Dog chewed wires to the sounsticks. Right through. Is there a way to repair?

Strip the insulation back from each end of the severed wires about 1/4". Twist the copper wires that match each other together and solder with a hobby (30watt) soldering iron. Wrap each wire separately with electrical tape and then to make the job look neat, tightly wrap electrical tape around all the wires in a spiral fashion. This should fix the problem.

Cut extension cord

This happens a lot with circular saws too.

You can strip off the insulation from each side of the cut and connect the wires (be sure to match colors!) and wrap the whole assembly in electrical tape, but you really are best off replacing the cord.

If you do repair it, tie a knot in the cord so there's no stress on your repair job when you tug on the cord.

I just did some reading and found out the name of the knot you want is actually the "Euro death-knot" (best example is in this picture)

Tie it with the cut ends just like the ropes in the picture, then do your splice job on the ends of the wires.

Dog chewed cord on bissell model 6579-2 how do I replace it?

You can cut the bad section of wire out of the cord, cut the insulation on the cord to get to the wires. Match your colors, strip the insulation from the individual wires and twist together. Wrap each wire with electrical tape (making sure no wire is exposed, can be a fire hazard), then wrap the cord with electrical tape. The cord will be a little shorter, but should work fine.

Help! Dog Bit Through Electrical cord on Lakewood 2727. How to replace cord???

another option for you would be to use crimp on terminal connectors(**** connectors) you may purchase these from most hardware stores. Even using these I would still tape around the outside to ensure a good insulating surface.
