Question about Siemens Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

No electricity in all bathroom outlets

Hi, I am in the Greater Toronto Area and discovered that all bathroom outlets have no power today. I happened to be in the basement where the service breaker panel was located. I had only re-connected a loose wire from a gang box to a transformer that fed into the smoke alarms [20 amps]. I thought this was the source of the problem, so I disconnected and reconnected, but still no electricity to any of the bathroom outlets. None of the breakers tripped from "ON" to "OFF" or in the middle. The house is 6 years old and it was raining today, but no moisture in the basement. There is a breaker called "Washer Plugs", which I turned on and off, still no power in the bathroom plugs. I tested all the breakers individually and then the main breaker. Could the breaker in question - maybe "Washer Plugs" - become 'broken' and require replacement and if so, is that normal?

Have you checked the outside plug? Next to the outside kitchen, It should be there. On my RV I have one next to the bathroom and outside.

Our microwave, tv and outlets do not work. Although our stereo does work and all lights do work.


Could be you have a faulty microcircuit breaker on the dead circuit though a consumer unit that contains fuses wouldn't usually have any microcircuit breakers.

I have known wired fuses to seem ok but have a near-invisible break in the wire. The only way to discover this is to remove the fuse and give the wire a gentle tug with snipe-nosed pliers or forceps.

"Test GFCI" has appeared on the display screen and I can't find a reference to it in the owners manual.


GFCI outlets (ground fault circuit interrupter) are designed to add a greater level of safety by reducing the risk of electric shock. Most building codes now require that a GFCI outlet be used in wet locations such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and outdoors.

When using shower the RCD trips. Doesn't happen every time.


I think steam is getting into some electrical device in the bathroom, perhaps a power outlet or a device plugged in to it, perhaps a light switch or fixture in the ceiling.

Not all light circuits have a RCD on them, and if yours does not, suspicion falls on the power outlet.

Siemens breaker just for overhead lights in bathroom and hallway Why does it buzz for a second then TRIP off?


You say the breaker supplies power to just one or two lights? And no outlets, fans, attic circuit? Map out all affected electrical boxes.
Move wire from suspect breaker to another same-size breaker and see what happens.
Move wire from the other breaker a to newly installed breaker, to check if breaker is main suspect.

Open each switch and outlet box affected by suspect breaker.
Disconnect power at light switch, and see if breaker still has problem.
Unplug all things from outlets on circuit.
One by one, check each electrical box for burned wires and loose wires.
Use nose to smell for burned condition.

Add a comment and update as you progress through troubleshoot.

Home fuse box breaker issue


Hi Rex,

It sounds as if the upstairs bathroom outlet and the outdoor outlet are on the same circuit. There's a very good chance that these are GFI or "ground fault interrupter" type outlets, as these locations (and others) have required this type of protection for over 30 years. It was a common practice to run a circuit from the panel to one of these locations (or another) and then run from here to the next outlet and then on to the next. Since the GFI outlet could be purchased for around $10 instead of $30 for a GFI breaker, electricians would install outlets instead - both offered the same protection. A "regular" breaker would supply power to this circuit - but the very first outlet would get a GFI type outlet. It would be wired to the LINE terminals and the cable that feeds the rest of the outlets on this circuit would be connected to the LOAD terminals. If there was a ground fault condition, this GFI outlet would trip, but the circuit breaker would remain on. You would locate and RESET the tripped GFI outlet to restore power. The only time the circuit breaker would trip is if the circuit was overloaded. Overloads would NOT cause the GFI outlet to trip.

Now that you understand how it was typically wired years ago (and still a lot of times today), you should check all the outlets outside your home, in bathrooms, basements, garages, and inside your home next to doorways that lead directly to grade of your lawn or deck. These are required places for GFI protection. Press the RESET on any tripped GFI outlet to restore power. If the outlet will not RESET, there is a condition where the hot wire (black, red or blue insulated wire) is in contact with ground, or a device or appliance connected to the circuit has a problem. Unplug anything connected to the circuit and attempt to RESET again. If still unable to reset, open the outdoor outlet again and carefully pull it out and away from the box. Inspected for damaged or crushed insulation and repair / tape as needed. Before reinstalling, try to reset again. If it holds, trip the GFI by pressing TEST button. The RESET button should pop out. Reinstall the outlet and make sure the wires are not crushed or cut. Press the RESET button again. If it trips, you will have to remove the outlet again and take more precautions against damage to the insulation. it is also possible that the GFI outlet itself has failed, in which case it should be replaced.

GFI circuit breakers and outlets are supposed to be tested monthly by simply pressing the TEST button and then the RESET button. Replace any GFI device that does not test correctly if wiring and devices / appliances connected are OK.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Two months old dead no power


Hi there,

Check the Power cable of your PC for any damaged or burn/cut. Firmly check the connection on the slot of the CPU Power Supply,

Check the Electrical outlet , or better plug the cord on a different electrical outlet.

If all of this has nothing to do and the problem was still there, possible problem on the powersupply are, it is advisable that you have to replace this part, a possible burnt or a short circuit has happen inside, due to some electrical malfunction on your area.

HOpe this helps.

Let me know for any clarification

No power in the two bathroom electric outlets.


What do you mean protected, if they where ground fault they have a test button,or the breaker
can be a ground fault, but it is a lot cheaper to buy the outlets. Call someone that knows electric,
because you need to check to see which outlet has power coming from the breaker,because this one
is probably bad, which will not allow any power continue on to the next outlet. Just say you were
going to do this yourself , you need a tester to make sure power is coming to the outlet.

You could buy a ground fault outlet and a regular outlet, but you have to make sure that the ground fault
is wired from the breaker, the power from the breaker, then the wire that Leeds from the ground fault
to the other outlet will also be protected, one ground fault can protect two other outlets that are connected to it in what is called a series. Unless you have a multimeter to test what needs to be tested
you should ask someone that knows electric. If you have any more questions please post back as everyone is more than happy to help. I don't feel comfortable trying to explain to you how to replace
the outlets, it can be dangerous and I would not want you to get hurt just to save a few dollars.
