Do I need a Electrician to remove and install a new garburator from a 20+ year old building?
I'm also not very sure about how to disconnect the power from the garburator. It is the wiring at the bottom that has me worried that I may make it worse.
You dont need an electrician, but you will need to turn off the power.
Those are very hard to disconnect as the wiring is under the unit. You can buy a good magentic tester that will help identify the cable that is touchless, but the armoured cable is not always accurate.
So to be sure if you cannot find the right fuse or breaker, shut the house power completely off and cut the wire as close to the garb as possible, peel back about 3 inches of the armour and marrette the black AND white. Turn the house power back on.
I live in Burnaby but I just found out the garburator I bought is a plug in and the old one was connected via wires.
