Electrical Outlet/Red Wire to Nowhere

Posted by Susan on September 11th, 2002 03:22 AM

While replacing electrical switches & outlets, I came across an outlet with one white wire & one black wire connected to the old outlet PLUS one red wire that was not connected to anything. Where should the red wire be connected to in the new outlet? What is/was the purpose of the red wire? Thanks for your help!!
