Sounds like a loose connection in the circuit. Did he check every connection at the switches and receptacles?


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

It happened to mine too! Just a loose connection either places(switches and receptacles)
Turn off the power and pull out all wires to verify them.
Happy Holidays!
