Electrical outlet installation.

 

Older homes often have only one or two electrical outlets per room, a real problem for modern families. Not surprisingly, adding new receptacles is usually a priority, especially when remodeling a bathroom or kitchen. Here is how to wire one.

 

1.Be sure the power to the circuit is turned off. Remove the outer sheath of insulation and all separation materials from the cables inside the box. Strip insulation from the wire ends, and use a wire nut to joint the grounding wires with a grounding jumper. For a metal box, screw a grounding jumper to the box

.2.For a middle of the run receptacle, twist together hot (black) wires with a short black jumper wire, and cap with a wire nut. Do the same with the neutral (white) wires. If you are wiring an end of run receptacle, it will have only single white, black, and bare incoming ground wire, which connect directly to the receptacle.

3.Attach the hot jumper to one brass screw terminal and the neutral jumper to the silver terminal. Secure the grounding jumper to the green grounding screw.

 

 

4.Carefully fold the wires into the box, and screw on the receptacle. Be careful not to crimp a wire, which can create a short.
