I’m having an issue with a 15 amp breaker that feeds electricity to my living room. I plugged in an electric heater last night and it ran for a few minutes before it started making a loud sound. I decided to turn it off but before I reached it the power in the room went out.
I assumed the breaker tripped so I turned off the heater and then tried to turn on the breakers. However the breaker was still in the on position.
I turned it to the off position and then turned it back on. There was a momentary flicker from a light but then it went out and turning the breaker on and off does not seem to do anything.
I assumed a faulty breaker as I thought a surge would trip the breaker if it was working properly. I am getting a receptacle tester tomorrow to check the outlets on the circuit to make sure.
There are no electricians available for a week at least as the holiday is coming up and everyone is busy. I was hoping someone with more electric repair experience than myself might be able to have an explanation or guess. Thanks in advance all.
