As we do our jobs, we all encounter "Bonehead" repairs, or complete fumbles in wiring repairs that we find and have to correct. Email us your "Bonehead" repair find, along with a brief description, and we can post it for all to enjoy a good laugh! (No repair source company names will be disclosed or posted! ) This is meant for entertainment, not to embarrass a company or anyone.

Complaint: Circuit breaker keeps tripping when the light bar is turned on and all lights go out....... This grounding disaster was found as cause. There was a circuit connection to ground at each blue arrow, and the screw was the single source "ground" for the entire circuit and every wire connection with a blue arrow.
Along with quarterly meetings and training opportunities, we also host special testing sessions for technicians to take certification tests. All of this is included in the annual membership fee!! There is a $20 fee at the door for non members. .
