We currently have a shed that has power wires run from our breaker box in our cellar, that then runs down into a plastic pipe underground out and then to our shed about 50 feet away.
The problem is there is now no power getting out to the shed. Using a multimeter, I found that there is 120V leaving the breaker box in the cellar, but there is nothing getting out to the shed. So we were thinking of pulling out the old wire and having new wire pulled along with that. Just wasn't sure if there was an easy way to do that, or would we have to dig everything up to fix it? Or is this something i should have an electrician do?
I want to say that the wire going through the plastic pipe is #8. There are three wires going through, 2 black and one white.
thanks for any help you can provide
