And then, handle the wires as if they had 10,000 volts in 'em.  (Its darned hard to be absolutely sure there's no stray current comin' at cha thru the white ones.  I've had my flying lessons, too.)
Don't force it. Get the BIG hammer.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
