Electrical Question about Circuit Breaker for Outlets
Received from Teresa a Homeowner in Lexington KY
Question: We woke up with no power in the bedroom and one wall of another room. We checked circuit breakers and all are live and getting power. We checked all outlets and ceiling fans to make sure that wires have not come loose. Still no power and suggestions? Thank you

Thanks for your electrical question.
Teresa, the circuit that provides power for these areas may have lost the connection to the neutral wire or the hot wire. If this circuit is being used to power a space heater or other large electrical device then the outlet that the device is plugged into should be examined for a burnt connection either at the outlet connections or at an electrical wire splice inside the outlet box. The electrical power should be turned off before any inspections or work is done.

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.
