Electrical Circuit Requirements for Kitchens
Electrical Question: Should a Kitchen circuit be on a living room circuit ?
- The reason I ask this question is because I purchased a new wall mounted fireplace for my living room,I turned the heater unit on and it tripped the breaker in my living room.
- A small portable heater plugged into an outlet in the kitchen also tripped.
- I would think that these two circuits would be separate from each other. I’m not an electrician.

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.
