I would think that if the other outlets that are on the same circuit are still working, then I think I would try replacing the outlet in question.

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

Circuit breaker is fine but still no power on one bedroom. PG&E said it might be a bad plug/outlet.


Turn off the circuit breaker and locate the plugs that are on that circuit. There is a good chance that the problem is between the closest working and faulty outlet. Starting with what appears to be the last working outlet on the circuit, check that all the wires are secure in all the fixtures and outlets.
If that does not fix the problem, a varmint may have chewed through a wire inside the wall. If you do not have experience with home wiring, you should get an electrician.

One single cable runs from the circuit breaker to a junction box in that area of the house.
The cable has a black Hot wire, white Neutral wire, and bare ground wire.
Once the cable arrives at junction box, it can split up 2 or 3 directions.
Each successive box receives a cable that feeds back to the first junction box.

Chances are the junction box is on the ceiling. And it will be the ceiling box that is closest to main breaker box.
Junction box can also be a switch box. In that case it will be switch box closest to main box.

Find the junction box, as point of organization.
Open junction box and separate all black and white wires.
Turn power on and see if breaker sets.
That will tell you if problem is between main box and junction box.

Junction box wires are separated.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Turn power ON and test each wire in junction box to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on Hot wire.
Test Hot to each other wire in box, except bare ground, and tester lights up on Neutral
This identifies the cable that comes from breaker box.

Now, reconnect cable from breaker box to one of the other sets of black and white wires located in junction box.
Check if breaker resets.
If breaker resets, see what circuits are working, and you can eliminate them as suspect.

Remember each successive box in a circuit has 1 cable that connects back to main breaker box
Going 1 box at a time, and disconnecting black and white wires, will eventually lead to the suspect.

I plugged a hair dryer in my room then it wouldn't come on in both rooms but all the other rooms outlets work this is the second time this month this problem has occured


Please check the circuit breaker fuses. The one in your bedroom is of lower amps. If it is 5 amps replace it with 15 amps. Also check the connections of the socket. It could be that wires there are not connected with the socket or they are burnt out thus no connection.

I have 110 voltage to all circuit breakers but no power to outlets in 2 bedrooms .


Check at the output side of the breakers with a voltmeter. Make sure that a white neutral wire didn't get hooked to a breaker. You may need to pull the outlets in the bedrooms to see if they are wired correctly. Good luck!

I have a circuit breaker that is intermittent


It is unlikely that those temperatures would cause the circuit breaker to shut off and come back on intermittently. (If the breaker trips it has to be reset manually.) It is possible that the breaker is defective internally or that there is a loose connection in the wiring. If you are not knowledgeable about electrical work you should have an electrician check it out for you.
