Can I ask a question along the lines of house wiring?
If I have a cut on a finger and touch the water in a metal pan on my stove burner, I got a low level shock. It’s enough to make you pull you hand back and I don’t get it without an open wound.
I thought it was my stove (electric burner, stainless steel pot), then noticed that I also get shocked by water in my stainless steel sink about 4 feet away. So, I disconnected the stove and haven’t bought a replacement. The shock stopped at that point.
Since then, I’d been using a ‘hot plate’ and had no problem until yesterday when I got shocked again on the metal pan. The hot plate is plugged into a different outlet (110 vs the 220 for the stove). The 220 breaker has not been turned back on. So that line should still be dead.
Is there something that can be done to somehow make the electric wiring cause stove burners to carry a charge?
Also, for the water, it is only the kitchen sink water that shocked me. No other water has that effect. No other water in my house is held in stainless steal container. I have well water and and the pipes are all plastic. Is there some sort of chemical reaction that can be happening with stainless steel as an electrode? Like when you put silver in water with tin foil?
