Safely block a 240 Outlet
I have a stove Outlet 240 amps that is not in use but it is right next to an exterior wall under a exterior fan that has a tendency to leak water during severe rainstorms. Because the dryer and the stove Outlet are one breaker I cannot cut off the breaker and cannot afford to have electrician come in and disconnect the wiring. So my ? is: can I cover the outlet with a thick piece of cardboard and then strong duct tape to keep water out if it should leak again.
