[ad#block]Question: I live in a modular home. Recently, the lights went off in one room. The circuit breaker had flipped off. When I checked the circuit breaker I noticed it was warm to the touch. I called an electrician who came out and checked the box and the wiring to the room. He found nothing. Since that time, the lights in that room have been flickering, and at times getting stronger as if a surge was pouring through the circuit. Any ideas?
Good site! Great info!
Thanks for your electrical question.
This question was answered and will appear in the main electrical question area of the website.
Basically, there appears to be a bad connection, possibly at the panelÂ where the circuit breaker connects to the bus.
I have advised this person to call the electrician back out to resolve the problem.
