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.
assuming this is a window air cond? It is not safe to use electrical tape, duct tape or any other kind of tape on a power cord to cover bare wiring. Many times I have cut the cord short enough to cut out the place where chewed and gone to a hardware store where I can get a new cord end that matches the wall plug and wire it in to the shorter cord. If this is not possible, you will need to either make a new cord or try to find a cord at an appliance supply house.
I feel it would be cheaper to replace the fan cord than to the dog.
As this is a DIY site, I would recommend that you repair the cord. Cut both the ends of the cord such that you have about a foot of the cord left with the wall plug and the fan socket. Procure a few meters of a double or triple cord depending what you have in your fan presently. Peel off the insulation on all eight or twelve ends of the wires and join them one by one to the wall plug and the fan socket to both the ends of the newly acquired cord. And insulate each joint with insulation tape individually and then collectively. So you have two joints on the cable if you look at it casually.
What you need to procure is:
1. A cord double or triple core depending on the original one in the fan now.
2. A small roll of insulation roll.
3. A dog leash.
was the battery working before ur dog helped u out...
remove the power cord and check how long ur battery can hold on till it dies down...when ur notbook is ON
if it holds for more than 10 mins then the battery will charge if the power cord gives it enough power to charge, else u may have a power adaptor that gives enough for notebook to work but not enough for the battery to charge at the same time....
u may have to change both the adaptor and battery....or else change the dog...ha ha ha...
u r the best judge....ask the dog to do some work on it may be......
Chances are that there is the tiniest fray of one of the wires touching somewhere. Since you have already made a good repair with nuts and tape, feel the length of the cord for other bite marks where a puncture might short the cords. If you find such a site, **** the sheath lengthwise, tape the wires and replace them in the sheath, then tape the sheath closed.
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.
That wire is to your thermostat which of course turns the A/C on/off. One thing you can do is to splice the wire back together w/ small wire nuts (available at hardware store or wal-mart, and just hook it up color to color and then tape w/ electrical tape. Make sure you turn your breaker off and turn off the thermostat control.
