If you suspect you have a partial wire break: The only way to know for sure if there is a partial break is by getting an OHM reading from the wire. Based on the number of feet of wire in the layout and the gauge of wire being used, we can determine the amount of resistance that there should be in the wire. If you have a digital OHM meter or access to one, please take the reading from the wire on the automatic or 2k setting. Contact our Customer Care Center for reading suggestions. You will also need to know the number of feet of wire in your layout and the gauge of wire you are using.
