Electrical Question from Raphael about Circuit Breaker Wiring Problems
Background: Raphael, a Student from Atlanta GA
I’m having major problems that involve the circuit breakers! Ever since we got the god forsaken electrical oven, things in the house of gotten haywire. The lights dim and sometimes don’t react at all even if i replace the bulbs or reset the breaker! As a matter of fact if I turn off the oven’s circuit breaker the room breaker goes off too! Should I replace the oven breaker or just call an electrician?
Thanks for your electrical question Raphael.
It sounds like there may be a problem at the electrical service panel. A qualified electrician could make a few tests to identify the problem and make the necessary repairs.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
