Jumper Wires Used, and NOT used, in Appliance Repair

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in General Appliance Repair Wisdom 25 January 2012 · 2,005 views

A common and powerful electrical troubleshooting technique is to by-pass suspected bad components. This is done using what's called a jumper wire that is placed across the contacts of the component, typically a switch of some type. You can buy a bag of jumper wires at Radio Shack or just make your own.

With this in mind, I present you this illustrative and thought-provoking photo. Can you answer the question it asks?

Give up?

Okay, here's the answer:


The first three are ones I use, the fourth one is used by someone that should NOT be any where near electrical work................... DO NOT be that person, use an insulated 'jumper'....... Okey Dokey ....

Use number 4 if you really really like my avatar and want to experience it personally.
My favorite jumper is a set of meter leads, shortened a bit and connected together.
lol. Number 4 is in my toolkit (with a bit of tape on it) because it is the only jumper that works on a Whirlpool Icemaker optics emitter board connector. This is for when you are jumping between the black and the black/white stripe wire to force power to an icemaker.
