    Question judyhouse

    I wrote a couple of weeks ago about my lights in my bathroom and an adjoining bedroom wall losing electricity. That is the lights in the bathroom and the outlets in the bathroom and adjoining bedroom wall were not working. The lights went out in the bathroom when I was in the bathroom and had not touched anything. Initially, I was directed to reset the GFCI outlet and if that didn't work to unplug all that is connected to the outlets and attempt to reset. If that didn't work to replace the GFCI switch. I purchased the switch and didn't put it in initially. Within 3 days the lights came back on without doing anything. That has me concerned as I am wondering if there might be a short in my wiring. Is this a possibility?

    Judy, You certainly do have a loose connection somewhere in the wiring that feeds both rooms. It could be in a junction box or even in the breaker box itself. I would have a certified electrician ck. it out as soon as possible! A current draw from a loose connection can create enough heat to start a fire. Steve
