Modification of Old Electrical Work

What is the problem with one of your outlets when you plug in the TV and it powers down most of the preceding plugs and comes back live after a couple of days?

== == == == That is the best example how electrical fires start.

Unplug the TV and call a Licensed Electrician.

This is not a DIY fix. <><><>

LIFE SAFETY WARNING! [disclaimer]

Electricity is dangerous!

You can be injured or killed!

Improper installations can cause fire, injury and death!

Should you be doing this yourself?

This is one of those questions - if you know this little, you shouldn't be doing what you are planning... No disrespect intended, but this is SO basic that it suggests you have not studied the subject at all!

There are many good reference books and course books to study from.

Troubleshooting is the height of the art

The only reason there is "not enough voltage" somewhere is because there is a partially open connection providing resistance and a location to allow a voltage drop [bad splice, bad switch, bad breaker, broken wire, burned splice, ...].

It is the knowledge of how electricity works, and of the methods and materials used to create a functional wiring system, that enables a skilled troubleshooter to locate the problem and repair it.

Where should the "voltage" be, and how does it get there?

When you understand that, you will understand what is keeping it from getting where it should be...

You may have a bad hot or a bad neutral, or both.

TURN THE POWER OFF!

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power

at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND

always use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes

(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)

to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Turbines are built in large lots. As wind blows, they turn. These are connected to "power outlets" these outlets lead to homes. As the turbines turn mechanical energy turns into electricity and powers our homes.Imagine it as a large mill that turns as water flows through it, and is used to produce bread

The "necessary and proper" clause is the last clause in Article I, Section 8. The preceding clauses of that section give Congress certain express powers. Then it states: "To make all laws necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof." The Constitution does not create laws. It creates powers to make laws.

The war powers act of 1941 was passed by Congress allowing the President to assume more power in building a military fleet to send overseas. This was because of the attack on Pearl Harbor as well as many other preceding factors. Previous attempts such as the Ludlow amendment would have called a national referenda to declare war. The 1941 war powers act ultimately was a declaration of war against the axis powers, notably Germany and Japan.
