Where are you checking the power at? The transformer? Or the fence wire itself? The power to the transformer is basic 110 volt, 15 or 20 amp circuit, need to be in a pipe or somewhat protected, , like through a wall. The transfomrer should be accessible, and can be switched by a light switch in a box. Your fence wire has to be a continuous run, no breaks, and make a complete circuit. It comes in different voltages, And will blow out a tester in a flash if it is on the wrong setting, so start with the high voltage and work your way down when testing. Some are just a tickle, some will knock you on your ****. So be careful. Make sure the breaker is on and good, and the plug is good if it has one. Also, it should hum or buzz when running. The horse will only have to touch it one time and he will never go near it again. Hope this helps.

How long does it take to charge battery in solar fence charger?


    1. A solar powered electric fence energizer usually contains a battery for energy storage. The solar panel collects the energy from the sun and charges the battery. Lead acid batteries, which are used in solar fence chargers, typically last around 3 years, or around 1,000 days of charging.

Get a shock from the tap while showering


I assume by main power feed your talking about the breaker box? If so make sure the breaker box is actually grounded. Also check inside the heater and make sure the ground wire in there is connected and has a solid connection.

i think the fence charger is bad and a safety mechanism has caused all voltage to go to ground. it could be putting out the voltage and be able carry current also which would be a deadly mixture. which is definitely not being a tight wad over. losing one cow over doesn't seem to be worth it either Indent" class="redactor_btn redactor_btn_indent" tabindex="-1">

C lightening hit my mark 7 fence charger is it worth repairing


If lightning hit the unit itself then it more then likely destroyed any electrical components inside the unit. I would say get a new one and dont even bother repairing it.

I have a promble,i want my ligths to have a switch,but i dont now how to connect the wires from the switch


This is difficult to answer, as you did not mention what you are working on. So, I presume house lights and 110 volts.

TURN OFF THE POWER. There should be three wires going to the light, black, white, and ground.

The black wire is the power wire and it is what gets cut and the switch installed to connect the cut black wire.

If you have any question, get an electrician to do this, as electrocution exposure is what you risk.

Cd play wires have been cut and dont know what the wires are?


one thing I learned as an electrician is to never expect a certain colored wire to mean anything specific. If you do not have an electric circuit tester get one and I'll explain to you what to do. First lets just say you're installing a basic standard cd player with 2 front channels and 2 rear channel outputs, and the factory system had 2 front and rear channels your wires are already in place and you don't need to run any new wires. Your new cd player's wires should be marked or you have an installation guide telling you what each wire does now you need to identify the vehicles wiring. You vehicle will have a ground wire, an antenna jack, a power wire that is constantly powered for the memory/clock, a power wire that is hot when the key is on to operate the player and 4 sets of speakers wire a positive and negative lead. Use your circuit tester to identify both power wires. Install your ground wire first or you risk shorting out or blowing the inline fuse if there is one on the main power wire to the player, next your antenna, then your main power, followed by the constantly powered wire for the memory. At this point your radio when turned on should light up, you can look in the trunk and identify both of the rear speaker wires to save you some time, you can figure out the front 2 after the rear speakers are installed by turning the fader to the front and connecting your cd players speaker wires to them there is a 50/50 shot so if you need to correct it. I would always recommend soldering wires together and using shrink tubing to shield them. Wires that are just twisted together or crimp connected can come loose and cause arcing from a poor connection which creates excessive heat and could potentially burn up your wiring or short out the radio or other vehicle components. good luck with your installation

New table saw, timber runninig off away from guide, saw blade running its own line,do i need to reset the guide.


The guide is called a fence. The fence should be positioned to the right of the blade. When using the fence, the largest part of the board goes between the blade and fence. Fences are typically have some relief toward the end, so you don't get the blade cutting on it's way down, and then cutting again on it's way up.
