Hello.

These are the details I was looking for.

One "hot" leg is out.

1. Reset your main breaker by turning it off, then on

If that doesn't work:


2.Call your power company.

i suspect the main 100 amp breaker out side may be the problem but it may also be a problen in one of the upstairs outlets
Focus :) Did you reset the main? It's not the upstairs outlet.



You need an electrician now.
Not yet.



1. Reset your main breaker by turning it off, then on



2.Call your power company.


THEN you might need an electrician. Always call POCO first.

To help you understand, you have two hot legs @1 120 vots each, 240 volts between them. You have a bad connection somewhere in one of them. It could be the wires, the breaker or the internal compnents of the panel like the lugs or bus bar. The "silver" wire is the neutral/ground.

Communication is not your strong point huh? I see yet another post.


You're just messing with me aren't you?:jester:

Don't try to understand the circuitry. Just call the power company now. It's FREE and they will guide you.
