I've always thought that way too many things are called "ground".
I think that the main message that I take from Kurt's post is that when we see
what he has seen, you can bet that there will be other problems. They need
I recommend homeowners who can safely look at their wiring do so. I don't care
if it was a "qualified electrical technician" that did the install, or if it
was inspected and approved. I suppose I''m OC, but when I bought my place, I
replaced all the outlets. Not only got nice new tight outlets, but I got to
look inside at the wiring. Found a few outlets that were not so good on the
connections. A fire hazard and likely RF problem.
