I was swapping out a receptacle for a USB receptacle and I was using the "stabs" in the back of the receptacle to connect the wiring (not under the screw). In the process of straightening the neutral wire so it would fit into the "stab" I used the wire straightener, and lightly pulled the neutral wire. In this process, about 3 inches into the box the neutral wire broke off (I didn't even touch that part of the wire!).
Needless to say the neutral wire is now to far into the box for me to be able to connect to the receptacle. What options do I have to connect this USB receptacle, or at this point I'd settle for any receptacle, since the neutral wire is so short?
I've tried to get the wire straightener and pull the neutral wire, but no excess wiring is coming. I see the wall above the receptacle starting to bulge which is making me nervous and making me think there's nothing to give.
sorry for my poor terminology, I can do light electrical no issue, but when something off the normal happens I always ask for assistance, and if too big I'll call in the experts.
