finding the circuit


I'm not an electrician, but have rewired our mobile home. I used the old wire for the most part and was able to get everything to work on the correct circuit but for one. Its as if the circuit does not exist. Any suggestions on how to trace the main power source? All sheetrock is done....

Seems as if you rewired an entire dwelling you should be able to track down a faulty circuit.

But try a Circuit Breaker Tracer for Electrical Systems from 90 to 250A/C Volts with Carrying Case.

Good luck.

Start checking plug boxes in the area of the dead circuit for loose wires.
Any voltage reading at all?

Everything else works. No shorts or tripped breakers
