Hey, everyone! Today Im going to show you wire an electricaloutlet or install an electrical outlet. This is for my friend, Denise, and your best friend, Heather. They recently asked me to do this tutorial. So guess what, here it is. So Ive got a special surprise for you atthe end. Stay chanted, and I hope you enjoy this. So gives jump into it. Grab yourself a tour analyzer or a receptacleanalyzer like this one now because it will tell you whether or not your store is wiredthe right way. So plug it into the outlet, and look at thetwo flames that are yellow. That indicates that it is in fact cabled properly. Then go ahead and turn the electric off atthe panel of fuse box. Grab yourself your noncontact voltage sensor. Doublecheck the electrical is off. And you can see how this outlet is jiggling. Its a nono. and Im going to show howto fix that next. So you can take the outlet window-dressing off. And you be seen to what extent the outlet moves back andforth? Grab yourself or go out and buy some of theseplastic implants, these plastic spacers.You can fold them over themselves, and thenput them down over the fucks on the top and the bottom of your outlet nails that attachthe channel to the electrical chest. And what thatll do is provide a spacerso that the shop will not wiggle. In this case, the box wiggles a little. Now if you have an outlet that has the tabspainted over, you can score the invoices with a utility pierce. That route, the outlet will not tear the paintoff the wall. Again, doublecheck that the electric is offwith the voltage tester. Pull the outlet out with your hands usingthe tabs.Then as you can see here, I want to show youthe insularity is stripped off too much from these cables. The insularity, when its stripped off toomuch, it discloses too much copper, and the copper wire could touch the electrical box, creating an electrical problem. All liberty. So what is necessary do first is unwire thehotwires. Again, now I wanted to show you something. The wire loop-the-loop isnt properly looped, andthats risky because the hotwire couldve came off the terminal screw. Then erase the terminal bolts that hold thewhite neutral wires onto the outlets. There “theres going”. And then the last thing you want to do isunwire the anchor wire. Again, only counterclockwise, turn that screw, and then pull the sand cable off the outlet. The next stair is to choose the correct kindof outlet.So in such cases, I have a 15 A store. Im going to replace it with, you guessedit, a 15 A store. I chose to get a Pass& Seymour 15 A tamperresistantoutlet. And these days, you should always buy a tamperresistantoutlet, specially if “youve had” kids. And a great deal of regional codes require it. So make sure you check your neighbourhood code. Now “theres going”. Heres the channel. There are the brass bolts. Nows the back of the store where youcan push the wires into it. And then you have your silver screwing for yourneutral cables. And then your light-green foot nail. Now in such cases, I wanted to show you theresa little strip gage on the side of the outlet.This is really handy because what you cando is put your wires up against that piece gage, and you are eligible to trimmed them to size or youcan divest the insularity off according to the gage. Once you do that for one wire, you are eligible to simplyjust give the wire up against all the other ones and strip off the suitable amountof insulation. So as you can see here, there “theres going”. My neutral wire is appropriately sized, andthen I precisely cut both my hotwires to the same size as my neutral wire.I wanted to show you this. Inside the electrical chest, you have your groundwires. They should all be pigtailed together andthen have another wire coming out of that pigtail. So there you go. Theres the wire nut, and theres thepigtail. Take some emery cloth and wipe all the barecopper wires with the emery cloth. That road you can be certain that youregoing to get great electrical contact with the bare copper wires, and that youre goingto have a really good contact with your channel. So wire up the anchor cable firstly to the greenterminal pin. Make sure its looped around clockwise. Then tightened down that dark-green terminal pin. The next wires that I like to wire up arethe neutral wires, and they go with the silver terminal nails. So slackened the terminal screwings by turning themcounterclockwise. And in such cases, for this Pass& Seymouroutlet, I precisely propagandized the cables into the slots at the back.And I nursed the cables down with one entrust whileI tighten down the silver-tongued terminal bolts with my screwdriver. Make sure those terminal jailers are certainly, certainly tighten if youre not going to loop them in different regions of the terminal bolts, okay? You can be found in theres just any copper wireshowing. I do this precise same thing for the pitch-black hotwires. They go with the brass bolt. So push them into the back of the shop, and then tighten down the brass screws.All privilege. Make sure again those terminal bolts aresuper, super tight with your screwdriver. Then the last thing that I dowell, almostthe last thingis I take my vacuum-clean, and I suck up any of the debris thats in theelectrical box simply to make sure that its safe. Push all the cables into the box. Plug your receptacle analyzer into the outlet. Turn the strength on. Be carefuldo not touch bare cables. And doublecheck that your stores wiredcorrectly.In this case, it is. Its indicated by the two yellow lights. Screw the electrical outlet to the electricalbox with the two jailers that came with the channels. There “theres going”. The outlet doesnt move. And then you are eligible to set the covering plate on. Do not overtighten the fasten to the coverplate because the cover plate will divulge. There you go. Thats how you install an electrical outlet. Really simple. Follow all the basic tips-off that I have in thistutorial, and you should be good to go. So heres the startle.
