Question about Electrical Supplies

Circuit breaker is fine but still no power on one bedroom. PG&E said it might be a bad plug/outlet.

I plugged a vacuum cleaner on my bedroom then the power went out. PG*E came and tested the circuit breaker and everything was fine. There' power in the house except for one room. What should be the problem?

Turn off the circuit breaker and locate the plugs that are on that circuit. There is a good chance that the problem is between the closest working and faulty outlet. Starting with what appears to be the last working outlet on the circuit, check that all the wires are secure in all the fixtures and outlets.
If that does not fix the problem, a varmint may have chewed through a wire inside the wall. If you do not have experience with home wiring, you should get an electrician.

Square D circuit breaker in a home fuse panel and I have already replaced the breaker with a new one.


i strongly recommend that you get in an electrician to investigate the problem
from your description of the amount of power required from your circuit breaker I would consider that there are to power wires from the back of that unit
one circuit to run half the points and another wire to run the rest
If only 1/2 are working, I am thinking that one of the wires at the back of the breakers is loose or come undone/broken and that will require the services of an electrician
To further explain this line of thought, each circuit in a house is designed to carry a maxim of 10 amp total (wire current capacity) so that with all outlets in operation the maximum current is 10 amps
if the required current allowed exceeds that the electricians break the numbers up so that a second circuit is employed again up to 10 amps max
if again there was a requirement that exceeded the 20 amps ( circuit breaker amp) a second circuit breaker would be installed and a 3rd circuit and so on

Outlets in bedroom aren't working


Check the breaker box. Also check your GFI plug ins an make sure they did not pop. It will be in the bathroom but the bedroom may be on the same circuit. Push the red rest button. If neither of those things work then I would replace the circuit breaker at the box. First ensure with a meter that you have power at all points.

Why would two adjacent circuit breakers in a panel trip for no apparent reason? We reset them and everything seems normal.


My first thought is that even though it's only feeding that single outlet in the room; many times the neutral wires are made together in a panel (neutral/ground bar),which tries to carry the load of the initial tripped gfci. and tripping itself. Was there a decent amount of power plugged in to either the 'dedicated' outlet or the series of outlets that go to the 2nd breaker?

THere is no electricity in the bedrooms and I can't get them back on?


If the circuit breaker will not reset - all the way off and then back on with a click sound. Then something you have plugged into the outlets in those rooms is probably shorted causing an over current condition. If the circuit breaker won't reset, shut off all lights and then unplug EVERYTHING and then see if it will reset. If it does, then replug everything one at a time until the electricity goes off again, that is the bad apple.But if it won't reset, then your breaker is probably bad. Yes, they do go bad, just infrequently.

I know this may have already been checked, but make sure that any gfci may have not tripped, and also, reset all the breakers if the gfci thing doesn't work... Trust me i know it is annoying but resetting all of the breakers almost always fixes the problem.

I have a circuit breaker that controls a light switch and all the outlets in one bedroom and controls half the outlets and a light switch in another bedroom. None of which work now. I have replaced the...


One single cable runs from the circuit breaker to a junction box in that area of the house.
The cable has a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire, and bare ground wire.
Once the cable arrives at junction box, it can split up 2 or 3 directions.
Each successive box receives a cable that feeds back to the first junction box.

Chances are the junction box is on the ceiling. And it will be the ceiling box that is closest to main breaker box.
Junction box can also be a switch box. In that case it will be switch box closest to main box.

Find the junction box, as point of organization.
Open junction box and separate all black and white wires.
Turn power on and see if breaker sets.
That will tell you if problem is between main box and junction box.

Junction box wires are separated.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Turn power ON and test each wire in junction box to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on Hot wire.
Test Hot to each other wire in box, except bare ground, and tester lights up on Neutral
This identifies the cable that comes from breaker box.

Now, reconnect cable from breaker box to one of the other sets of black and white wires located in junction box.
Check if breaker resets.
If breaker resets, see what circuits are working, and you can eliminate them as suspect.

Remember each successive box in a circuit has 1 cable that connects back to main breaker box
Going 1 box at a time, and disconnecting black and white wires, will eventually lead to the suspect.

I have 110 voltage to all circuit breakers but no power to outlets in 2 bedrooms .


Check at the output side of the breakers with a voltmeter. Make sure that a white neutral wire didn't get hooked to a breaker. You may need to pull the outlets in the bedrooms to see if they are wired correctly. Good luck!

My breaker blew and this receiver was plugged in to that particular AC outlet. Does this receiver have some kind of Power Supply protection?


Is that outlet is the only circuit on that breaker?

The receiver may not have exceeded its own internal parameters to blow the fuse or enter protection but it (and whatever else is drawing power from its convenience outlets) may have exceeded the rating for your wall breaker.

There is a modest limit on how much extra current-drawing equipment can hang onto the back of this unit. It's probably printed near the outlet(s). Probably 100 watts max.

In general, nothing heavy duty like heaters, amps, vacuum cleaners, TV's should not be plugged into the receiver.

Hoover EmPower 4600 keeps blowing circuit breaker. The number of outlets in the house that will allow me to run the vacuum is dropping quickly. It is a 4 year old house and all the circuit breakers are 20...


take it to a friends house and plug it in if it does the same thing then the problem is in the vacuum cleaner.check your cord and see if there are anny cuts in it.you can open the breaker box then plug in the vacuum and watch the breaker box.you might see a spark and narrow down the problem.
