I have a circuit on a 20 amp single pole breaker. All it has on it is two lighted ceiling fans on 1 single switch; it operates both ceiling fan lights and fan. It has a receptacle as well. My panel is around 35-37 years old. That is all that is on that circuit. What could be possibly wrong with the circuit? I checked Voltage on everything. It reads 120v very good. It might stay good for 2-5 days then loose power on everything on that circuit.

    Does the breaker trip when the circuit loses power? Is there a TEST button on the breaker? Can you post photos of the breaker panel, including the label on the inside of the door? – ThreePhaseEel Oct 31 '19 at 3:22
  • No the breaker does not trip at all. There is no test button or GFCI on the circuit at all. Just what is listed above. Voltage reads good on all; hot to neutral, & , hot to ground. I could have sworn the other day when I flipped the 20 amp breaker for that circuit; killed power to it the power did not go out. The circuit and all on it was still hot. – kota032211 Oct 31 '19 at 10:34
  • What make and model is your breaker panel? – ThreePhaseEel Oct 31 '19 at 11:39
  • It has been painted over. Breakers are Eaton. I will send photo. – kota032211 Oct 31 '19 at 11:52
  • How does the power get restored after it goes out? – JACK Oct 31 '19 at 12:55
