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.
