Electrical Question from Jason about Circuit Wiring
Background: Jason, a Homeowner from Indpls, IN
Question: I have no power on front wall but have power in the rest of the house and checked breaker and it had not been tripped, is it possible to burn up that breaker.
Thanks for your electrical question Jason. It is unlikely that your breaker is burnt, especially if the problem is isolated to only one wall. Chances are that there is a loose or burnt connection in one of the outlet or switch boxes. The circuit should be shut off and each outlet box in the affected area should be removed so the wiring can be inspected. Once the problem is discovered then necessary repairs will be needed. This can be done best by a licensed electrical contractor.

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.
