How to Fix a Broken Electrical Cord / Wire

How to Fix a Broken Electrical Cord / Wire

DISCLAIMER: Please use CAUTION while fixing any electrical wire. Also, fix wires that you unplug regularly, and do not fix wires that you cannot inspect on a regular basis. I would have a professional replace / fix wires on any major appliances a large amount of current / electricity flowing through it.

A how-to video on how to fix broken electrical wires found on lamps, vacuums, extension cords, etc. I show how to fix a 2 prong and a 3 prong (with a ground) plug.

To purchase an inexpensive wire stripper, electrical tape, and other various items I show in my videos, check out my Amazon Store. The link is located on my homepage on the right side or by clicking this link:

    You are an idiot, never splice an electrical cord, you are going to get someone electrocuted. Stop, take down this video, or correct your mistakes.

    Shocked me and seemed to short out my fan while fixing the other end closest to the fan itself and not the plug end. Now there is no life at all did I ruin my table fan???

    Thanks for this!! Recently had a portion of my tv cord get melted. I'm not here to start an electrical fire, so I figured I should replace the damaged portion of the cord before using it. My dad isn't around so it was helpful to come online and find one of the first hits had a very simple explanation! Huzzah!

    Fan #1 Helpful video for 1 damaged fan. Fan #2. My puppy bit the cord close to my fan. Also, the connection wasn't very good to begin with cause the fan worked intermittently. In other words, I had to wiggle the cord to make the fan work. Fan brand = Vornado. Can I replace the entire cord?

    When I went to buy the new plug, there were at least five different kinds. Did not know which one to get. It would be helpful to show different ones that are available.

    Thank you so much for your tutorial! A mouse chewed part of my refrigerator cord. Called the appliance repair place and they said the part I need was $100 + labor and was on back order with no estimated date in sight. Watched your video and $25 trip to Home Depot later, my fridge is up and working again. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    Replaced the pronged plug from a portable dishwasher with this help. Plugged it in and the unit powered on without issue. Thanks!

    Thanks a lot. Does this method produce local heat in the broken area ? Is it safe when we connect a broken iron wire ?

    I need to replace a wire similar to your white one, but plug in is missing/ripped off, so I can't mark bad and w a sharpie. Any suggestions for replacing w a different cord end/plug in
