I am assuming that you installed your receptacles by attatching one wire to one screw .. not pigtailing the wires to the receptacle. It seems to me that your second receptacle has a missing link. Look at the sides on the receptacle, there should be a small link between the two terminal screws to carry the power to the next in line. If the link is missiong then replace that receptacle and you will be good ion the circuit .. If the link is there , then check you connections, sometimes we can catch a bit of the insulation in the terminal and then there is no transfer of electricity from that point on .. If you pigtail the wires and then connect the receptacle to the tail, then the circuit has more integrity. and we should always use the screw terminals, not the stab-ins. a better , more secure connection.

Square D circuit breaker in a home fuse panel and I have already replaced the breaker with a new one.

i strongly recommend that you get in an electrician to investigate the problem
from your description of the amount of power required from your circuit breaker I would consider that there are to power wires from the back of that unit
one circuit to run half the points and another wire to run the rest
If only 1/2 are working, I am thinking that one of the wires at the back of the breakers is loose or come undone/broken and that will require the services of an electrician
To further explain this line of thought, each circuit in a house is designed to carry a maxim of 10 amp total (wire current capacity) so that with all outlets in operation the maximum current is 10 amps
if the required current allowed exceeds that the electricians break the numbers up so that a second circuit is employed again up to 10 amps max
if again there was a requirement that exceeded the 20 amps ( circuit breaker amp) a second circuit breaker would be installed and a 3rd circuit and so on

Refrigerator disables all outlets on its circuit but the 1st outlet

I just answered your question on the previous situation but here it is again. A GFCI receptacle placed in a circuit controls power to all remaining devices on that circuit. If the GFCI trips, anything after it shuts down. That is your situation. If your fridge keeps tripping the GFCI, it has a grounding problem. You should have your fridge checked out so that your family does not receive an electrical shock when contacting the fridge. Be safe.

No power to two outlets other two work in the room on the same grid circuit box isn't tripping

There is a possibility that the two outlets that are not working are on the lower end of that particular circuit. If that is the case, there is also a big possibility that the connections on one of the working outlets is not transferring the current to the other two that are not working. Suggest you verify that the the connections feeding current on down the circuit line are tight and well connected. Hope this works. For safety sake, ensure that the breaker for that circuit is turned off before you start fiddeling arown with the connections. Good Luck.

The seven outlets and one overheard light are all hooked to one of your circuit breakers.
Modern electrical codes call for this formula (7 to a circuit breaker), and your description of your problem tell me your house/apartment is correctly wired.
Here's the fix.
Find your "fuse box" and open the door.
Look for a circuit breaker that is not EXACTLY lined up with all the other switches.
Turn that one off and back on again.
If you cannot see any circuit breakers that are not exactly in line with all the others, you will be needing to shut them all off and turn them back on one at a time until you can find the offender.
You may need to repeat this a time or two.
This should fix it.
If not, the next step is sort of dangerous, so you will need someone who knows about electricity.
If this doesn't work, the next step is to remove the square metal inner cover and look at all the circuit breakers to see if a wire has come out of one, perhaps next to the one that was shut off buy the repair person.
Be blessed.

I have a T104P,it is hard wired to hayward I hp pump,the breaker in panel is 2 together which i believe = 240...I am putting a dolphin 115 amp with a plug. i want to run the intermatic to a outdoor...

So you want to wire a 115 volt outlet to T104 240volt timer?
Open following link to see how to wire outlet so it turns on-off with timer.
If you do not want outlet to turn on-off with timer, connect 120Volt hot to terminal 1 instead of terminal2

Open following link for general wiring information:

What concerns me is the 8 gauge wire.
If the timer has 8 gauge wire, it is not code to connect smaller wire to outlet without putting 15 amp in-line fuse on 120Volt hot.

Upvote the help.
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Problems with a GFCI outlet (no voltage). GFCI outlet was replaced and reset recently but that didn't fix the problem. One other GFCI breaker in the same room is working OK. Also, water is entering...

if your room is powered by one breaker you need only one gfci and it has to be hooked up correctly to protect the other outlets a new gfci will have a tape tag over the out side usually the top set of nuts the water in the panel is a major fire hazard i would fix this problem first your feed to the gfci may have shorted out in the wall between the breaker and the gfci if it is wired separate from the other gfci in that room one thing you can do to save calling an electrician is go to lows home depot or any electrical store and purchase a plug in tester they are inexpensive and easy to use it will tell you if wires are hooked up correctly backwards or if you have a short somewhere in the line this is the same little gadget that an electrical inspector uses to make sure new homes are wired correctly an outlet will still work even if some wires are incorrect in the circuit the outlet tester confirms all is good and safe

ok start at the pannel is there a double breaker there
usually a 30 amp two pole breaker this is how a pannel works first breaker pulls 120 off of one side of pannel second breaker pulls off 120 off the other side of pannel if you look the buss bars you will see that they interchange from one side of the pannel to the other so at the breaker you are checking make sure you have 120 v on output of one half of breaker and 120 on second half of breaker when you use a volt meter put one side to gng the other side to wire comming out of breaker you should have 120 on both sides if not you have a bad or tripped breaker

We need to install a new rear heater hose on our van and are not sure how too do it

I've done this many times
You will need a tubing cutter
I think a 7 or 8mm socket
hose clamps
the appropriate amount of heater hose
zip ties

cut the steel heater line at the front in a place you can get access to,leave yourself enough steel hose on the rear to allow you to put the heater hose on cut off the steel hose and discard, and use 2 hose clamps on either end do the same for the other heater hose,this way is cheap and easy and permanant.Be sure that when you run the heater hose keep it away from hot or moving parts,use the zip ties to fasten it along the way,this should take about a half hour or so depending on your skills and working conditions,remember to buy some antifreeze to top up the system because you are going to spill some,remember to clean any spills animals love it and it is deadly.

If the outlets work on the 2nd story ok, and not on the 1st floor, then you may have a wire that has come loose. There maybe a junction that split off between the 1st and 2nd floor. I assume you are talking about the suction and not the brush roll on the power head. If it is the power head not working, then check where the 2 prongs go into the outlets to make sure that the plug receptacle haven't gotten pushed in from the holder.
