He took it apart because it's not working. It's not working because he took it apart. And so we are all a part of the Great Circle of Life. 15:22, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Reminds me of my Christmas present to my parents - a USB mains socket, and my time and work to install it. The old non-USB socket was working fine, but when I removed it, I couldn't get the new one installed due to some unusual wiring, and couldn't replace the old one either. This also cut the power to the fridge! We had to call an electrician to fix the problem - literally, that it wasn't working because somebody took it apart...

120V is a US standard - in the civilized world, or at least Europe, single phase domestic supply is 230V.

The three phases are 120 degrees apart. Wikipedia is over there. 18:10, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
