Re: Connecting Green to Ground When....
Take the bare wire off the screw. Attach a short piece of new bare wire (same gauge) to the screw. Now take the green wire and the two bare wires, and connect them with a wire nut.
Wrapping two wires under one screw isn't permitted by electrical code.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
