@Daniyal: Do you mean to say that there might be power shortages too ?

Proper Wiring!

You are right it's really very time-consuming to track the wiring faults. It can be made quite stress-free by using good techniques during the wiring. Most of the times, the fault occurs at the point of joints between the wires, if small breakers are used at each point of joint along with using metal sleeve and heat shrink sleeves, a lot of problems can be avoided.

Hinge Conduit

 I believe that hinges used as conduit for routing wires and hoses are the leading cause of appliance failure.  I shake my head while shopping when I see the latest dishwashers or refrigerator/freezers on display.  I always ask the store salesmen how the water and electricity from the door to the wall supply.  They show the plug and hose connection on the back, but can't figure out how it all gets to the door.  They're totally unaware of the problems those hinges will cause in the future.

Jennifer, yes there is. That's how I do it. I rarely break down.

Shame there wasn't a way to fix it at the hinge once and be done with it. Sounds like you tried that option.

For real, Cadman-LT. I was just thinking that so many of our Made By Monkeys columns are about dishwashers - there is something to be said for washing your dishes by hand, I guess.

I am a DIY guy, but I'm not sure if I would have had the patience that you did. Bravo!
