Is it possible for a fuse from the main breaker box to go bad? I have 3 outlets not working 2 in 1 bathroom and 1 in another bathroom all on the same floor. In the bathroom with 2 outlets had 1 GFCI the test or reset button wouldn’t do anything I figured if I changed it out with a new one that would fix the problem. It did not. So I changed all 3 outlets and they are still not working. They are getting power they are connected correctly. When this first happened last Sunday the breaker that all 3 lines are on felt spongy for lack of a better word. You could flip the breaker back and forth and there was no tension in the switch. After changing the outlets out the breaker feels normal it clicks when moving it back and forth. This is definitely above my basic knowledge and We do have an electrician coming to check it out. Just curious if anyone knows what this could be based off of my description.
Yes, it's entirely possible for a breaker to go bad. The symptoms you describe are consistent with such a problem. You should replace it immediately as in this condition it may not perform as it was designed to and you could be at risk for a fire should a short-circuit occur. When in doubt, change it out!
Breakers definitely go bad. There are many moving, spring loaded parts in them and with age they go bad. One final test would be to swap breakers in the main panel to verify the faulty breaker. Then you could pick one up at your home store and save the price of an electrician. This shouldn't be done unless you're very familiar with the procedure. Good luck.
