Basement Lights misbehaving...

Posted 03-07-2015 at 07:38 AM by Afrum

So, my basement lights are going out intermittently...There's no fuse that's blowing, and then about 5 minutes later, they come back on for a random amount of time, then back out...I searched high and low throughout my house and couldn't determine a power source causing the issue. During Christmas time, lights plugged into an outlet above the basement stairs was preventing the lights from turning on at all, and now this on/off at random times issues....Any insight to a possible cause would be appreciated!!

    A bad circuit breaker or a loose connection somewhere on the circuit are possible culprits. You need to open up all of the affected outlets and switches and check for loose or burned connections. Start with the outlets close to the electrical panel.
