irregular function of outlets

220/21 (and others) hit the nail on the head! There seems to be one of the feeders out. And the power that he's getting whenever the oven is on, is due to the "backfeed" or "feedback" of sufficient current to power the outlets. However, the advice given. Namely. To call the POCO (power company) first is not universal. In NYC, for example, where we hail from, the power company (Con Edison) is your last in a series of steps. (not your first option) Only after having ascertained 101% that the fault is in the Poco's wires can you call them. You also have to supply the License# of the Electrician taking responsibility for the diagnosis. Should you erroneously call them (when it is an internal wiring problem, you (the electrician) are liable for the amount of $500.00!!!
