If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

Also, instead of opening 2 new questions it would probably be better to update your question from a year ago that has more information: diy.stackexchange.com/questions/38085/…

comment How can I diagnose the cause of my washing machine shocking me?
The washing machine drum is likely coated with something, screwing with your measurements. If you probe between two separate spots on the drum what resistance(s) do you get? If its not near 0, your measurements arent working properly. It may be insulated well enough to stop the tiny voltage from an ohm meter from being detected, but not stop 240V.

comment Allergies in brand new apartment
"Alergies" can be anything from rashes to trouble breathing to giant boils. What are you actually experiencing? It may not be alergies - you may want to have someone come in and do air quality testing.

comment How can I use these “closed” power outlets?
Or they may be tamper proof outlets which have built in safety covers. They often require a little more force than usual to insert the plug.

comment What could cause a digital circuit breaker finder to not find a breaker?
Its possible the outlet has been accidentally wired to two circuit breakers on the same phase. This is unsafe. If there is no single breaker that turns it off, see if there is some combination of breakers that do turn it off.

This isnt answerable without a picture. Can you add one? It might not be repairable at all.

comment How do I figure out what this 30amp 2 pole breaker is doing?
Keep in mind the label might be wrong. Do you have central AC or electric dryer or stove that might be using it instead?
