I am renovating a house and had an electrician come in to update power, run new outlets, etc. I will be installing a garbage disposal that uses a switch (switch already installed) and a dishwasher. The electrician left an open junction box with wire nuts on the connections for the garbage disposal and a set of 3 wires coming out of the wall for the dishwasher. Each are on their own circuit now.
How to properly connect?
I am capable of whatever method is needed but I want to know two things:
- For the garbage disposal I can connect the wires via wire nut to the garbage disposal wires without a problem but do I leave the junction box open without a cover? That doesn't seem right.. How to I close it up properly?
- For the dishwasher a similar question, I can connect the wires to the dishwasher via wire nuts too but how do I enclose the connection? Should I install a plug to the end or some other way?
