My wife has finished cooking so I reattached the socket and the circuit is now working.
So my question becomes - how can I remove this socket and the wire without breaking the circuit?
I recently had a load bearing wall removed from my property and the leftover electrical work has been dangling between two rooms.
It's a triple gang light switch with a socket attached to the end. Two of the three lights are 3-way switches although all three switches are using 14/3 cable.
There are two sockets coming up from the floor that are on a different circuit if the extra wire is confusing. These are not connected to the circuit in question.
I removed the socket from the bottom of this 3 gang box. It was connected by a 14/2 cable spliced with neutrals and hots in the box.
All the lights are still working but I've lost power to the electrical sockets and my outdoor light.
I'm puzzled because I wouldn't have thought that removing the socket would have impacted the circuit. Is it this or is it something else?
Troubleshooting steps I've taken:
- Cycled every breaker into a fully off and then on position
