New Electrical Outlets Not Working
I am in the process of changing all the light switches and outlets in my home. I changed the first switch, which was not grounded so I grounded it and it seems to be OK, but when I started to change the outlets none of them are working in that room.
Dining Room Light Only Works When Breakers are Off
My dining room light only works when all breakers are off. What is the issue that is causing this?
Entire Circuit Not Working
We lost power to one of our circuits. We changed the breaker, but there is still no power. There is power to the breaker. Can the problem be a bad outlet if its the first one in line coming from the circuit?
Breaker Keeps Tripping After Changing a Light Bulb
Pretty much all I did was change a light bulb in a recessed outlet in a bedroom and now that switch is throwing the breaker. If I leave the light off, but have the TV/Xbox on it throws after a couple of minutes.
Some Rooms Lost Power After Installing a Ceiling Light
My husband put up a light fixture in the living room. He turned the breakers off for the living room. He installed it and when he put the power back on the light worked, but my stove doesn't work. Also my dryer in the basement doesn't work and my bedroom upstairs has no power either.
Repairing Damaged House Wiring
I used a long wood screw, in place of one of the mounting bracket screws to hold the new light fixture to the junction box. I wired it without flipping the main, by turning it off at the wall. I went through a wire I guess. I know that the wood screw was malformed and soldered together end-to-end from the arc and pop.
