He even had the instruction manual ready, just in case.
Scott then had to solve the mystery of why this snafu occurred. First, he checked the power connection at the dishwasher but that was done correctly. Next, he checked the shut-off switch under the sink. The dishwasher and garbage disposal share a junction box which has an outlet to plug-in the disposal. Scott discovered the power going to the outlet was incorrectly tied to the dishwasher switch instead of the outlet, so when the switch was flipped, the circuit for the disposal became tied to the dishwasher circuit causing the main panel breaker to trip. Swapping the black disposal wire to the outlet and the black dishwasher wire to the switch fixed the problem and everything worked like it should.
Good job, Scotty!
Scott also hung up a chrome shelf for extra storage.
Leo kept watch over the weekend's activities, of course.
Stay Tuned for More Progress!
