how do i cover an exposed electrical wire?
Wire nuts can be used to provide TEMPORARY termination of single conductors. There is currently no electrical code in North America that allows you to hide live wires terminated in this fashion. All connections and terminations must be made in appropriate device or junction boxes (which also must be accessible).
This Site Might Help You. RE: how do i cover an exposed electrical wire? I Just bought a house and in the bathroom are exposed electrical wires that should be hooked into an outlet. I just want to safely cover the wires and out them in the wall. How do i do this? I was thinking wire nuts, but are those not for connecting two wires together?
Where is the other end of that exposed wire connected to? Can you just cut it off clean with side cutters (wire cutters)? The wiring in the heater has a high temperature insulation rating but not general purpose duct tape. It will be a fire hazard. If you're going to get a new heater then just remove the bad wire for now.
By you comment you just showed me how much you do not know therefore anything you do could electrocute you. To be gin with there are wire nuts that can not only be used to bind two wires together, three wires together and so on. suggest you talk to several friends who may of had experience in doing what you need done, have them do it for you and you watch and learn how to do it the next time around
