Power outages are something that every one of us has definitely experienced at one or the other time. The blackout may have been caused by a storm or you may have overloaded the circuits by using too many heavy-duty appliances simultaneously within a single circuit. At times you find there is no specific reason for there being No Power in your home and you just find that your entire house or part of it has suddenly gone dark. This is when you realise that the issue is far more complex than a circuit breaker trip.
The situation becomes even more puzzling when you notice that only one particular room or only some rooms are without power while the lights are blazing in every other room in the house. Some of these problems may be very basic and easy to fix, while others might be more complicated. Here are some things you can do:
Dealing with circuit breaker problems
Tripped circuit breakers are very common problems and an overload within a circuit causes them. At times, a wire gets shorted because an appliance is faulty or some wiring has frayed. It’s important you unplug all the appliances within that circuit; plug them in turn by turn and switch them on to identify which one is the culprit. Look for the circuit breaker connected to that particular circuit and simply reset it.
Ideally, that should solve the problem and the power should come back on in that room. In case it doesn’t, you would have to thoroughly check the socket plates for the GFCI receptacle. This safety device may be fitted to that circuit or may be positioned in another room as well. Press the ‘reset’ button to get the power back on in that room. If you have gone through this one step at a time, the power should get switched on. If it doesn’t, the only option left is to call in an electrician to address the problem.
