Ok guys I’m looking for some feedback on this.
While performing a four point inspection cloth wiring is observed for large appliances such as the A/C, Range, or even the panel feed. Its noted in the report. Homeowner highers an electrician to come out and he wraps the cloth wiring in electrical tape.
I think I know the answer but I want to ask some of you vets. Is this an acceptable form of mitigation?
I’ve been to three different jobs this month for re-inspection of the “corrective” issues only to find these wires wrapped in electrical tape but still present in the box.
What is a proper form of mitigation? Is it a total re-wire of those conductors? All other wiring is NM shielded copper in these cases. Only the large appliances tend to be cloth. Why are these not replaced when the home is re-wired?
Any feedback is appreciated. Pic for reference of the most recent.
