comment Why do fire extinguishers lose pressure over time?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because fire extinguisher characteristics and management are not related to DIY home improvement.

comment Why does my toilet randomly start running?
Yes if the vent were a problem, the bowl would empty. The OP is talking about the tank running.

comment How do I trouble shoot powerline issues to my home?
Its far more likely that the open neutral exists within the homes wiring. Utility connections are large, heavy gauge wires with connectors crimped on, then bolted into your meter. Way less likely to fail then some twisted connection with a wirenut in your house.

comment How do I find what these breakers go to?
Might also be useful to clamp an ammeter/multimeter around the hot wire to these breakers to see if there is any load on them. If load is non-zero then they are in use and doing something, if its zero its possible they are not in use, go nowhere, etc.
