Electrical Question from Jason about Circuit Wiring
Background: Jason, a Homeowner from Indpls, IN

Question: I have no power on front wall but have power in the rest of the house and checked breaker and it had not been tripped, is it possible to burn up that breaker.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Jason. It is unlikely that your breaker is burnt, especially if the problem is isolated to only one wall. Chances are that there is a loose or burnt connection in one of the outlet or switch boxes. The circuit should be shut off and each outlet box in the affected area should be removed so the wiring can be inspected. Once the problem is discovered then necessary repairs will be needed. This can be done best by a licensed electrical contractor.
