Electrical Troubleshooting and Air Conditioning Circuit
Background: Glenn, a Handyman from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Question: I was running a portable A/C unit in the bedroom when the power went out in that room. My first thought was a tripped breaker. I checked but all the breakers were on. In total all the outlets in the main bathroom and master bedroom are out along with the Ground fault in the small bathroom and the doorbell. The Ground fault in the main breaker board as well as all the breakers were checked with a volt meter and they are all live? The house is 30 years old and I cannot figure out were to look next. I did pull off a couple switches to look for loose wires but have come up empty. Can you provide me with some direction.
Additional Comments: so far so good
