    I was recently doing some outside wood work and had a chop saw connected to an extension cord to an outdoor outlet (GFCI). I noticed that the saw was sluggish but I was able to complete the job without issue. Later that day, the indoor lights and outlets on the same circuit as the outdoor...

The crazy thing is that the dryer will still turn and stay on but it will not heat up. Switched the dryer out for different dryer because at first thought it was...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post :) So I'm having a problem with my TV and the electrical circuits in the new apartment that I just moved into. So first I connected my TV in one of my living room plugs which are connected to breaker1. Turning on (and sometimes off) the TV caused breaker1...

    Hi, I want to know that a house cct can continuously deliver 15 amps (or, say, some derated amount like 12 amps) without tripping the breaker. Is there some kind of loading device made where I can control the the number of amps that it will load the outlet with? Failing that, what household...
