Wires could be disconnected from the main fuse box. Check to see if you have any Ground Fault Outlets installed and ensure that all have been reset. It sounds like they may all be on one circuit and if so, You need to check that all outlets nad light fixtures have good connections and are tight. Its possible that you have a GFI outlet in bathroom that is tripped or is bad the bedroom outlets are possibly wired to same circuit It just may be that the fault that tripped the breaker also broke the circuit to the other points. Look into the boxes of the outlets and switches. If there was a fault you may see carbon where an arc broke a wire to the remaining points in the string.
That's one I've never seen. Does the bathroom light turn ON when the bedroom light is switched Off? Does the bathroom light switch turn the bathroom light on and off normally when the bedroom light switch is left on? Need to answer these questions, then find where the bathroom light power comes from. It's power supply should either go directly from the power oanel to the bathroom light or to the bathroom light switch. The bathroom light switch merely acts as an interrupter for the hot leg of this power supply.
You should install no more than 9 outlets. If you add a 75 watt light then install no more than 8 outlets and that 1 light.
You probably blew the breaker for the lights. While usually the lights and outlets in a room are on the same breaker, it isn't always done that way. And you may have blown the light bulbs in the lights.
It means the breaker has been tripped. There are two possible ways to reset it - some have a button on the outlet (there may be several outlets on one circuit, so you may have to look around) the other is the main breaker in your breaker box. You'll need to find a reset the breaker.
Well it is only a guess but I would say your bathroom and bedroom were sharing the same cct and you have not kept the cct going by placing the dimmer in line. There would be a continuation of wiring from the dimmer to the bathroom that you have perhaps not reconnected.
There is no limit as to the amount of circuits you can have in a garage. If you mean how many devices on a 15 amp single circuit breaker then the answer is 12. Be sure to total in light fixture outlets and switch boxes.
Can anyone tell me why? I rewired the upstairs and I know it is correct. It is an old house that had the knob and tube wiring. Alot of the rooms are on one circuit as I havent had time to split them up. The 2 upstairs bedrooms, 1 downstairs bedroom, Living room, dining room and bathroom (light only) are on the same circuit. However, only the 1 upstairs bedroom and the light in the bathroom are affected. If I turn either of the light switches on, it turns both lights on. If I turn the bathroom light on, the light in the bedroom comes on and does not shut off with the bedroom switch, no matter if the switch is in the on or off position. The same goes for the opposite, cant turn off the bathroom light when the bedroom light switch is on. The bathroom light still has the old knob and tube wiring as I havent gotten that far in the wiring process and so does the downstairs bedroom, however, I cant figure out why the only 2 lights affected are the 1 bedroom upstairs and the bath if all of the other lights act normal. There is only 1 main power feed to all the upstairs Would it be because there is no ground wire on the bathroom light fixture? Its just 12-2 to a junction box and the knob and tube wires are spliced to it in there.
Proably due to a GFCI breaker located in an outlet either in the bathroom or on the same circuit, possibly in another room like the kitchen or other bathroom. You will see the button on the outlet....
This sounds very strange. You should not have an unswitched bathroom light. Replace fixture with one with a pull chain. Turn breaker off before changing the fixture.
It would be quite unusual to have a single 60 amp circuit with outlets and lights. You would have to use very heavy wire to each light and outlet. Typical lighting circuits would be protected by 15 amp breaker and a circuit with general purpose receptacles would have a 20 amp breaker. A typical lighting circuit might have 10 to 12 fixtures and receptacle circuit might have 8 outlets. If you don't know how to size a circuit get an electrician.
Utility outlets and lighting outlets should be separate so that when a utilization device plugged into an outlet trips the breaker or blows the fuse, you won't be left trying to find your way to safety in the dark. Light fixtures are much less likely to trip a breaker in ordinary use, but there are places you also want more than one lighting circuit for illumination.
When several outlets are on the same circuit the current comes first from the breaker panel to one outlet where it is connected to a duplex receptacle and/or switch or light, then to the NEXT outlet, light or switch. If a connection was not made properly at any point along the way it can corrode or somehow loose connection back to the breaker panel. If that happens, every outlet DOWNSTREAM will not be working properly. If you cannot track down the problem yourself, you will need to hire an electrician.
I have always gone by max 6 outlets per 20 amp line. Lights,,,8. Most light circuits don't require 20 amp circuits.
Yes a bad circuit breaker and a bad light switch can cause a light to flicker when its turned on. It could also be caused by loose wiring going or coming from that paticular circuit. it also could be something in the fixture itself causing. Checking for loose connections is your cheapest and first route to go.
You need to identify specifically what is causing the breaker to trip. It could just be that you have to many devices or appliances on the circuit; or it could be a problem with the wiring, switches or outlets. Some steps to take. 1.) Unplug everything from the circuit. If it doesn't trip anymore you had too much plugged in. Identify what can be switched to another circuit. 2.) What device or appliance causes the problem? It is most likely something like a heater or something with a motor; or perhaps too many higher wattage light bulbs. 3.) If the breaker always trips when it rains, you may have a water moisture problem? 4.) If the breaker trips when nothing is connected it may be the breaker or a short in an outlet or switch.
The outside it is painted light blue with a large rap-around poarch. The first floor contains the living room, kitchen and eating area, bathroom and Rory's room. The second floor simply has Lorelai's bedroom and bathroom.
That has to be a ground fault protection breaker. Lucky you! When it is off there will be outlets that don't light the test lamp you plug into the sockets around your home. Find and list the dead ones. Somewhere you have a waterleak into the socket or something connected to that breaker that has a water leak into it's electrical connections
Safety light curtains are very expensive. They are also not for use in the bathroom.
The Hunter 82023 Belle Meade Bathroom Fan with Light is great.
The light bulb wattage needed for a small bedroom can vary by the bedroom's natural light and the needs of the consumer. However, generally, it is accepted that 60 watts is a proper amount for a small bedroom.
You certainly can. You can also have a single room serviced by more than one breaker. Breaker assignments are based on expected power usage and type of home wiring. Bedrooms don't normally require a lot of power so several rooms' wall outlets can be on the same breaker. The ceiling lights also don't require much power and can be on the same breaker circuit. It also makes sense to have ceiling lights and wall outlets on different circuits so that if you need to shut one of the circuits for work or repair, you can still use the other for light and power. Some areas such as kitchen, garage, work room, laundry room can have appliances and equipment that require more power and should consider having their own circuit breaker.
When the electrician finishes his work by installing light fixtures, trimming out the breaker panel, installing electrical outlets and switches, cover plates, and connecting appliances like the water heater, garbage disposal, and dishwasher.
It shouldn't affect it at all. The light switch should affect only the operation of the light in your bedroom. If anything the switch would be on the same circuit as your kitchen lights and then it would be connected in paralell so it wouldn't have any effect on anything other than the load it was intended to control unless it somehow shorted to ground in which case it would trip your breaker and disrupt the whole circuit.
A small light which can be left on overnight in a bedroom for nervous people.
