There's a break in the wire somewhere. Switches usually get their power from a nearby receptacle (or at the light).
Also, make sure the outlet that stopped working isn't in a ground fault circuit. Check the rest of the outlets that may be in the same breaker circuit and see it they have ground fault protection that has been tripped. Its a little red reset button on the outlet.
Its possbile that there might be a loose connection further back along the line. If there is a break in the neutral and/or earth (cpc, circuit protective conductor) then a volt meter will indicate no volts even if the live cable is infact live. If there is no RCD (not sure what its called in America) then if earth and neurtral are broken, for example a nail hammered through then the circuit breaker would not trip. Best way i go about finding a fault is ask, has anything changed since last time it worked (shelfs put up, decorators removed a face plate for painting ect). Check for loose connections at back of face plates, inside consumer unit. High Ohm resistance check each line, will show if there is a fault between any of the conductors.
You need a voltmeter. No one should play with electricity without at least a multimeter.
Panels without mains may have up to 6 breakers.
Cant imagine without electricity. Without electricity our daily routine will disorder
Switchgears control electricity. They consist of switches, fuses, and circuit breakers which can be used to disconnect machines from electrical currents. This may be necessary if one wishes to fix a device without risking electrocution.
The main advantage of a digital multimeter over an analog multimeter is their accuracy.AnswerDigital instruments are not necessarily more accurate than analogue instruments (although they often are), but they are far more robust and, usually, far easier to read without error. A digital multimeter has no moving parts and is unaffected by gravity, so they can be used at any angle, whereas analogue instruments needed to be placed on horizontal surfaces and not subjected to vibration.
Computers run on electricity. Without electricity, there'd be no computers.
Electricity is defined as the movement of electrons. Without electrons, there would be no electricity.
no you cannot turn it on without electricity or some type of battery but, no it wont work
The world has gone a sea change after the invention of electricity. Today, without electricity even for few minutes, life become gloomy. The monetary loss in the financial sector without electricity is unimaginable. All activity will be in a stand still without the noble hand of electricity.
You cant use technology without electricity?
Even without electricity i can write a good paragraph by using candles as an alternative use..
It's Electricity !! affortable electricity by Nikola Tesla. Tesla perfected the AC generator design, making electricity practical and cheap. Without Tesla, we will still have electricity, but it will be very expensive.
motorcycles use a magnet system to generate electricity for the spark plugs they cannot run without electricity because you need electricity to ignite the gasoline but they can run with no battery if you have a kickstart or you can bump start them
you need some form of electricity to make an incandescent bulb work. The filament is heated by electricity passing through it. Without electricity, there is no heat to make the filament glow, and therefore no light. The only way would be to somehow heat the filament to the point it glows without using electricity.
India has around 80,000 villages without electricity and 25,000-odd among them have little chance of being connected to the power grid in the conventional way.These villages were without electricity for 20 years!!
Yes, you can live without your eyes if the bleeding is stopped in time.
Electricity is used almost everywhere in advanced countries. Modern life would be impossible without electricity.
Electricity that flows through wires and flows without stopping.
Your electricity do not eat the food. It depends on how hungry you are.
When there was no electricity people understand time by looking at the sun
No, neural signals in the body are electrical in nature. Without electricity your heart and other muscles would not function.
There is no effective way to check it without hooking up water and electricity.There is no effective way to check it without hooking up water and electricity.
Check the fuse located in the fuse block. Use a multimeter to confirm that electricity is present at the fuse location. The fuel pump only runs when the ignition key is turned to the on position. Turn the key to the on position without starting the car. Have somebody near the gas tank listen for the wirring noise of the fuel pump. Check the pump electrical connections at the fuel tank with a multimeter with the ignition key turned to the on position. A fuel pump needs electricity to run.
Modern life would definitely struggle without electricity. This is because modern life has become so adapted to needing electricity to perform daily tasks.
For me, well, telephones wouldn't work without electricity :|
