I'm experiencing difficulty wire wrapping cat5e cable to a Corning wire wrap block using an electric wire wrap gun. The twists in the wires are so tight that after being stripped, there is still some twist in the wire, making it difficult to insert it into the gun bit sleeve. Can you tell me if cat5e cable is intended to be wire wrapped?

Re: can cat5e cable be wire wrapped?
I tried the same thing once, the diameter and the twist make it useful only in desparate times when you just can't find any mylar wire to use. Been there, done that, now you have the T-shirt. I do use the wire for patching and repair but again it is just much larger than patch wire and not nearly as flexible.

You may have a damaged power cord or a defective thermostat in the electric wrap. Unplug the cord and inspect it from the plug to the wrap. Look for crushed and broken wires, especially near the plug and at the wrap.
Plug in the wrap and note the rate at which the wrap's indicator light blinks. If the blink rate is regular, the thermostat may be defective.
If the blink rate is irregular, CAREFULLY and gently flex the power cord while watching the indicator light. If bending the cord
changes the blinking rate, you have found the area of damage.
If the problem persists, unplug and discard the wrap. Repairing broken internal wires can expose you to an electric shock or cause a fire when you attempt to put the "repaired" wrap back in service. Your best strategy is to discard the defective wrap and buy a new replacement-- the safety risks are much greater than the price of a new wrap.
with out changing whole light harness, get new socket w lengnth of wires still attached, splice it to old harness.Use best connect ions you can. solder, wrap in tape, electrical connectors wrap in tape. twist at least 7 turns of wire.wrap individually w tape.
F3 E2 is an indication of a water temperature sensor (NTC) error, or heating circuit failure. Check the water temperature sensor and check connections to the water temperature sensor.
Several people having this error needed to repair one of the wires to the sensor. - "There were 2 black wires that go to the water temperature sensor. The wires passed through 2 tie wraps that bonded them to a flange off the bottom of the washer drum. They were wrapped with electric tape inside the tie wrap. Prior to joining the bundle of wires that went to the motor, there was one more tie wrap around the 2 black wires. At this tie wrap there was no electric tape to pad between the wires and the tie wraps. One of the wires was nearly severed.
I replaced the wires. Tie wraps should not be used. They are often too tight and crush wires. Especially in a device that inherently has LOTS of motion."
there is a kevlar heat shield tube that can be used around electrical wires Probable available from an electrical equipment whole sales shop. Next fibreglass matting cut into strips and wrapped around the wire will do the trick. Just do not use epoxy as this is what makes fibre glass inflammable. Best bet is to have an accredited auto electrician make up a battery cable with a length so that the cable can be positioned away from any heat source.
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.
Cut off damaged wire ends and use a crimp type splice to resecure. Wrap each splice with quality black electrician's tape then tie wrap wires together, tie wrap wire bundle to secure points, then apply more electricians tape to bundle to water proof. Try and find some spiral wrap to protect the wire bundle as a top coat

If you wrap the wire from right to left the wire can be pushed out of the connection when you tighten the screw. If you wrap it from left to right to left then it will pull into the connection when you tighten the screw. Hope this helps. Good luck.
