View Full Version : I didn't die from electrocution Woot!

My main breaker exploded, I think it was moisture or just old age.

It still worked some, every other fuse on the bus still had power luckily.
Had to swap the fuses around to keep the heat on.

Bought a new 100AMP to replace the main.

Had to pry the old one out, sucker was melted in good.
Since it's the hot service wires I'm worried about making contacts
while I'm fighting with the thing. LOL

I rewired the box a bit after that and marked everything.

It feels great doing your own repairs.

Suddenly reminded of Mike Callahan from Spider Robinson's Callahan's Crosstime Saloon, wasn't it Mike that said:

"I used to have a wife and kids until I replaced my own brakes" ???

Guess my house is my wife.
She's a high maintenance girl.

As read this, Death Wish Puppy was chewing on the heated throw's wires. Pray hard for that one, y'all. *shakes head and takes a Valium*

I don't even want to think about how much it would have
cost to have an electrician fix it.
