Lucky that your Puppy did not get electrocuted!

The simple answer is 'YES' ... but since you ask the question, I would highly recommend that you ask an eletrician or other electrically savy 'technician' to reconnect/repair the wiring for you.
The colors of each wire to reconnect must be the same as the original connection.

Hope it helps.

Sewing machine won't run.

1. Make sure the machine isn't set for bobbin rewind. Also, try to move the control hookup around slightly to ensure it is making a good connection.
2. Is it possible the power switch looks like it is on but isn't because of the surrounding light? Check this and the outlet you are using.
3. Is the sewing machine light on? A puppy biting in the wire could have caused a short so a pro will have to check the guts of the machine.

Can I replace the jack that my puppy chewed off

The puppy probably chewed off the plug. If the plug was molded on, it may be more practical to replace the entire cord assembly.

How do I stop my puppy from chewing up everything?

There is no easy fix here. Your puppy is just that... A puppy. For all you know he might be teething and chewing stuff is a way to ease the pain. Now, what you want to do is make sure that those "chewables" are not within his reach. Get him a couple of toys, and make sure you play some with the puppy so it understands that these are ok to chew. Schnauzers are very territorial, so once he understands that the toys are his, he'll make sure to keep them within reach. Also it'll make him forget about all of the other stuff he normally chews on.

Puppy ate thru power cord. Can it be replaced?

no need to replace it. Simply cut the cord where it was chewed through (if it was not already fully separated). cut an inch off of each damaged side of the cord. Strip the wires and then "braid" them back together.

The puppy chewed the cord of our chi. Can I find a replacement cord and repair it myself?

Depending on where your tear is, you can follow just a few steps to help you out. If your tear is a couple inches from either end (like in the middle or close to it) all you need to do is cut out the part that is torn. Once that is done, carefully cut some of the outer plastic back (so that it reveals the actual wires on the inside). Make sure you take that step slow, as to not cut all the way through, just cut through the outer layer. After that, twist the metal wires on the inside together, then cover the exposed metal wires with electrical tape (be generous with the tape so you don't shock yourself in the future. Wrap around 3 to 4+ times)

Hope this helps! :] Good luck!

My puppy chewed through all the wire in the back of my Jet 3. I would say it is like and electrical harnes. Where canI get a replacement part

dp You can contact Pride Mobility @ 1-800-800-8586 or your local provider to order a replacement harness. When calling Pride ask for tech support for a Jet 3 chair and explain to the tech what wires were chewed He should be able to get you the right part number. If they won't sell you one give the part number to your local provider and ask them to order it for you Hopes this helps BTW keep the puppy away from your chair lol

Puppy chewed the cord and the webcam does not work. Can the cord be replaced?

You can actually splice it if you are mechanically inclined at all. Just cut it, strip the wires, match them by color and/or strips and seal with electrical tape. Much less epensive than a new camera!

My puppy chewed the electric cord! Can i buy a replacement? Model GGR200RDDS

This should be an obvious one. If the cord is attached HARD, meaning you can't remove it, you have to buy a new unit. punish your puppy as you see fit. If the cord is removeable, meaning there is some sort of lock-in plug end to the cord to the cooking unit, OR a magnetic lock, you can most likely buy a new one. just call up the number for sales that should be printed on your owners manual somewhere. And if you tell me its not there, look harder. every company wants a sale. and you know the company name anyway. GEORGE FORMAN GRILL. Also you can splice the cable if its a chew in the middle. it takes some electrical know-how, but if a puppy chews in the middle, a pair of wire nuts and some electrical tape fixes it. talk to people in the know. CONTACT CONTACT CONTACT! :) The world is not at an end due to a fiesty puppy.
