Was going to add an extension box & MC cable to move this outlet to get rid of a power strip that was running a dishwasher... then I found this......

There's a pic of my helper that followed me around all day also

Yep.... Cats are far more intelligent than a lot of humans in my experience.

If only he could've pulled that outlet out from behind the drawers that were completely in my way... I would've added him to payroll

John... I've come across that a couple times... documented here http://electrical-contractor.net/ubb/Forum5/HTML/000594.html

At first I thought it might be the old (ancient) NM cable, with the fraying fabric visible in the pics... then I scrolled down.

Yikes!

Don't think that that box was quite designed for that application.

(At least it was in a box )

Love yer help!

Doug,
Whoever remodeled that kitchen had something major against grounding anything! In the first "More Fun" posted in here are his kitchen island outlets... no ground there either! Not to mention being tapped off the old electric range ckt & still on the old 50A 2P breaker!
