I have a bathroom receptacle that is controlled by the light switch. How do i PROPERLY separate the switch from the receptacle so as the light still works from the switch but the receptacle stays fully powered instead of shutting off when the lights go off
You move the hot supplying the receptacle from the downstream connection FROM the switch to the upstream connection SUPPLYING the switch.
However the word "bathroom" should be a huge red flag here. Do NOT touch a bathroom wiring project involving an outlet unless your intent is to replace said outlet with a GFI. They do make GFI's with an outlet on one side and a switch on the other.
