So I recently bought a house built in the 70's and been dealing with issues ever since. Recently I was going to do some work with the electrical in the master bedroom when I ran into a problem and now I'm lost. Here's the easy way to explain what's happening
In this order:
- Turn off breaker 9 master lights turn off
- Turn off breaker 11 outside plugs turn off
- Turn on breaker 11 outside plugs and master lights turn on
- Now only turn off breaker 11 only outside plugs turn off.
Any suggestions or help is appreciated.
So I have traced the outside plug back to breaker 11 it's is a straight shot through crawl space no splits or junction boxes, I'm assuming this means the box needs to be replaced? If so any suggestions on brands to buy/avoid?
So the last update was wrong I have no clue what in my house breaker 11 is powering and while checking I heard arcing in the box shut main power, electrician came out got the box operable for the time being and working with insurance to replace it
Here's some images of what the electrician found:
