Highly recommend! Quality work, reasonably priced and prompt. Very conscientious about electrical safety and wiring and keeping the working space clean in your home. Very pleased!

1. Safety preparations: The electrician will start by ensuring the power is turned off to the circuit they will be working on. They might use a voltage detector to verify that there is no electrical current flowing to the outlet.

2. Remove the outlet cover: The electrician will carefully remove the cover plate from the existing outlet by unscrewing it.

3. Cut off the power supply: Next, they will remove the screws holding the outlet in place and carefully pull it out of the electrical box. They will disconnect the wires from the outlet, making sure to note their positions for reconnection later.

4. Prepare the new location: The electrician will then prepare the new location for the outlet by marking the desired position on the wall, typically at a height of about 12-16 inches from the floor. They will use a stud finder to ensure there are no obstacles behind the wall, such as studs or pipes.

5. Make necessary openings: If there is no existing electrical box at the new location, the electrician will cut a hole in the wall for a remodel box to be installed. They will use a drywall saw or a hole saw, depending on the type of wall material.

6. Extend wiring: Using appropriate wire connectors, the electrician will extend the existing wiring to reach the new location. They will carefully feed the wires through the wall and connect them to the new outlet.

7. Install the new outlet: The electrician will securely mount the new electrical box in the wall, ensuring it is flush with the surface. They will then attach the outlet to the box, making sure to connect the wires correctly according to the noted positions.

8. Test the installation: Before completing the job, the electrician will turn the power back on and test the outlet to ensure it is working properly. They will use a voltage tester to check for the presence of electricity and may also plug in a device to verify functionality.

9. Secure the outlet and cover: Once the electrician is satisfied with the installation, they will secure the outlet in the electrical box using screws. Finally, they will attach the cover plate and ensure it is aligned properly.

It's important to note that electrical work should always be carried out by a licensed and qualified electrician to ensure safety and compliance with local electrical codes.

 

Resetting a GFCI Outlet:

  1. Locate the GFCI Outlet:

    • GFCI outlets have two buttons: "Test" and "Reset." They are often installed in areas where water is present, such as kitchens, bathrooms, or outdoor outlets.
  2. Press the "Reset" Button:

    • Simply press the "Reset" button on the GFCI outlet. This should restore power to the outlet and any connected devices.
  3. Check Other Outlets:

    • GFCI outlets are often interconnected. If pressing the reset button on one outlet doesn't work, check other nearby outlets for additional GFCI outlets and repeat the process.

Resetting a Circuit Breaker:

  1. Locate the Circuit Breaker Panel:

    • The circuit breaker panel is usually located in a utility room, basement, garage, or even outside your home. Open the panel door to access the breakers.
  2. Identify the Tripped Breaker:

    • Look for a breaker that is in the middle or "off" position. It may be slightly out of alignment with the other breakers.
  3. Turn Off and Then On:

    • To reset the breaker, move it to the "off" position and then back to the "on" position. You should feel some resistance when moving it from "off" to "on."
  4. Check for Power:

    • After resetting the breaker, check the affected outlets to ensure power has been restored.

If the Problem Persists:

If resetting the GFCI outlet or circuit breaker doesn't solve the problem, there may be a more significant electrical issue. In such cases, it's advisable to consult with a licensed electrician to diagnose and address the problem safely.

Always prioritize safety and consider seeking professional help if you are unsure about any electrical troubleshooting or if the issue persists. Working with electricity can be dangerous, and it's essential to take the necessary precautions.
