Totally Bummed Tonight :-p

Problem Spots

We have a short circuit somewhere in one of the electrical lines. It’s the kitchen lighting circuit. 🙁 🙁 While screwing in the underlayment for the kitchen floor last night, we accidentally went through a wire that was too close to the subfloor. *sob* We managed to repair the nicked line and restore the circuit… or so I thought. Today, while turning on the kitchen ceiling fans, sparks came out of the light switch! Boy, was I mad. Had to shut off the entire circuit. So far, I’ve been unable to locate the exact problem. What the heck?! We fixed the short! Now what’s wrong? I’m hoping the short circuit didn’t blow my new (and expensive) ceiling fans!

I am bummed. 🙁 I have to wait until I have a vehicle to go and get a multimeter tomorrow… even then, I don’t know how to find the short, exactly. It’s so weird, it’s frustrating!

It’s not all roses and music, renovating an old house. Sometimes it really, really stinks!

    Oh gosh, that is awful. You poor things. You know that if there is any luck at all, it is bad luck. Hopefully it will be something easy to fix. I don’t blame you a bit for being bummed. Don’t give up. You have come so far.
    Sending you purrs and woofs for good luck in getting it fixed.
