Why a Stove Turns on Light Fixtures




Electrical Troubleshooting Question:
Our electrical wiring is messed up everything is working back words.
The stove turns on the kitchen lights and washing machine works when you push in the control. Can you help please asp?
Thank You, Lisa

Hi Lisa - Great Electrical Repair Question!
Lisa - this is a potentially serious problem.
From what you have stated your electrical system has lost half of the main power and the electricity is feeding backwards through the 220 volt electrical appliances.
This is what is known as a neutral feed-back.

This really should be corrected at by a professional electrician who will begin examining and troubleshooting your main electrical service and testing circuits in order to identify the problem area.
Thank you for your info, it really helped allot,
Lisa.

Electrical Tip

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.
