Common Electrical Problems

Taking Care of Electrical Problems at Home

Power out in kitchen or bathroom

To solve this problem you may need to press the reset button on the GFCI outlet or check your circuit breakers to see if they have tripped.

Tripped Breaker

Before calling an electrician, try to very firmly turn the breaker off and back on. If you notice that the switch has some wiggle it may mean it has not been firmly turned back on (some breakers do have a small amount of wiggle).

Power out in half or whole house

We suggest you call your utility company first. It may be a utility issue they will be able to handle.
