    Since that last electrician located the break I did consider just repairing the break. But
    who's to say there isn't damage to the other cables as well? I have reason to believe the
    workmanship on the ...

    The first electrician never did get back to me with an estimate. The second electrician that
    was out here wouldn't even call me back, even after I left a couple messages. What is it with
    these busines...

    Upon further consultation with the builder and electrician we now believe that the lines are
    direct buried. That would at least make it easier to explain the damage. So now I'm going to
    get estimates ...

    So in the shop all the bear wires go to ground and all the white wire go to neutral. Unless the
    two are connected at the shop somewhere then then the neutral cable is still working
    somewhat.That is co...

    Sorry, maybe I'm calling things by the wrong name. The sub-panel is at the workshop. The only
    cables going from there to the main panel at the house are the 2 black and 1 white. The main
    panel and the...

    Yes. Apparently, the sub-panel at the workshop has it's own ground. The electrician said that
    is why I'm still getting some voltage.

    Are not the common wires and ground wires connected at some point?

    It has to be a complete break, doesn't it? The resistance through the white wire was infinite,
    indicating an open circuit.

    That's a good question. How does a complete break occur inside a conduit?I agree Neal. I think
    something happened upon installation to damage or shorten the life of this wire. The splice
    bought us a f...

    The neutral has to be in the same conduit or cable as the hot wires.If he replaces to the wires
    save the old ones. They have value at the scrap dealer.I don't know if it's code here but it
    certainly m...
