I have 2 bedrooms with all electrical outlets connected to the same circuit. I started getting intermittent interruptions in all of the sockets in the bedroom farthest from the main breaker box. This went on a couple of months and then all the outlets stopped working. Additionally, all of the outlets in the bedroom closest to the main breaker stopped working.
Please note: The house was rebuilt from the ground up in 2004, so all wiring, circuit breakers, and main panel are new (14 years old).
I tested all of the outlets with a pen tester - all showed power. A friend who is an electrician tested the outlets and found them all to have power. He couldn't figure out the issue.
I then checked all the connections to each outlet to make sure there were no loose or scorched connections. All were fine. I then replaced the circuit breaker itself in the main panel. I then found that all the outlets in the room closest to the main panel worked, but all the outlets in the bedroom furthest from the main panel still did not work.
I then tested each outlet in both bedrooms with a Micronta 3 prong tester. All the outlets in the bedroom closest to the main panel showed correct connections and worked fine. All of the outlets in the bedroom furthest from the main panel all showed "open hot" with non of the lights lighting up.
Does anyone have any ideas?
