Nice 1980”s ranch, no major issues until I got to checking appliances and electrical system. The following are items that I encountered. Can anyone give me a clue as to what may be going on.
[FONT=Arial]1. [/FONT]The guest bedroom light / fan, the living room light / fan, the front porch light, the foyer light, the range, the dishwasher and the refrigerator all exhibited signs of low power
[FONT=Arial]2. [/FONT]The compressor on the refrigerator did not operate, the interior light was on but dim, turning the units control knob to off caused the light to brighten to normal
[FONT=Arial]3. [/FONT]The burners on the range top would not reach higher than approximately 200 degrees and the oven and broiler elements did not heat up at all
[FONT=Arial]4. [/FONT]The a/c system would not respond at all, not even the circulation fan
[FONT=Arial]5. [/FONT]The water heater did not work
[FONT=Arial]6. [/FONT]Turning off a 20 amp single pull breaker caused some lights to brighten; it also gave power to an outlet that was w/o power earlier when tested.
[FONT=Arial]7. [/FONT]Turning off the 30 amp water heater breaker caused the living room ceiling light / fan to lose power.
[FONT=Arial]8. [/FONT]Flipping the switches at the foyer and front porch light caused the sound of the dishwasher’s motor to change pitch.
[FONT=Arial]9. [/FONT]There were a few areas of handyman wiring but just a few added light fixtures in closets
I had a similar situation several years ago but not to this degree and just made a call for an electrician but now I’m curious.
