I am taking out a range hood to install a microwave/vent combo. When I went to the panel, I found that none of the switches cut the power. I even cut the 220s to see if it was jumped from one of those. No luck :huh:
There is a light on the hood that makes it easy tell it's still getting power :thumbsup: I have noticed large junctions or bundles of wires in the crawl space. Is a place where you would expect this problem to originate? I still haven't checked the main switch as we are in a remote area and the likelihood of power coming from elsewhere is extremely slim. Your suggestion seems the most probable cause unless it's possible to get power from a panel without a breaker. That was pretty much my original question. The double feed theory will be my next try.
