Won't come on

Heat or AC won't come on. The circuit breaker box hasn't been tripped. The top section has a white and black wire the black has power. the bottom section where the transformer doesn't seem to have any power to it. No led lite either.

If you check power between the white and black wire you should read voltage, if you only read voltage to the black wire and ground, then it is a problem with the wiring going to the furnace. If you do have power coming into the unit, check the line connections to the transformer. If there is voltage present in the line side, the the load side should read 24v, if not then it is a simple transformer swap. Hope this helps.

Breaker trips after bout 5 minutes


Breakers trip because of heat.
When heat from wire exceeds breaker rating, it trips.
Something is causing heat on the wire, wire is too small for the amp draw, there is short circuit, or breaker is bad.
Replace breaker and/or test wire.

Put amp-meter on wire and read amp draw through wire.
Amps cause heat. That's why high voltage lines from power station are high-volt-low-amp so there is no heat loss with long distance transmission, until transformer at home converts electricity to lower volts and high working amps with enough power to run electrical devices.
Same is true for AC and DC circuits.
If amp reading on wire exceeds rating on breaker for length of time, then breaker will trip.
The fact that the breaker lets current (amps) to flow for a period of time before tripping is because the breaker is probably rated for slow-acting, or it takes a while for amp draw to heat the wire.

Following image shows amp-meter that clips over wire to get amp reading.

The prcblem i have is i have no power in one bedroom, but there are no curcuit breakers that are tripped. so how can you test a breaker other than resetting the breaker. also we have no gfi outlets or gfi...


I don't know how technical you are so here are a few easy tests you can try:

plug a known, working lamp into each plug of the receptacle (top and bottom). This minimizes other potential issues.
Switch each circuit breaker FULLY off and then, Fully on. Yes, it is tedious but sometimes, breakers trip and it doesn't always show.
Still not working? Open up the cover plate and look at the contacts. You should have a black wire going to a gold colored screw and a white wire going to the other side, silver colored screw.

The best test you can conduct is using a simple voltmeter (AC) to test if you are getting voltage to the outlet. No AC Voltage? Try going to the known circuit breaker and measure the voltage coming from the known breaker while the other lead is on your neutral bus. Of course, if you aren't experienced with electricity, I recommend you get a licensed electrician to troubleshoot the issue.

As well, I know you mentioned that you tried resetting breakers but with a load on the circuit and someone else verifying it for you, you may just get lucky. More than likely, you will either encounter a faulty outlet, faulty wiring or a faulty breaker.

I have a circuit breaker that controls a light switch and all the outlets in one bedroom and controls half the outlets and a light switch in another bedroom. None of which work now. I have replaced the...


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.

Why does my 100 amp main get so hot the black wire is starting to melt, should'nt the breaker trip if there is that much draw?


You need an electrician before there is a fire.
If the breaker is not tripping, then the breaker is bad.

Act now before the heat damages the box and you need full replacement.
Absolutely put the metal cover back over the breaker box and keep the door closed.
Move all flammables away fro breaker box area.
Put a smoke detector right there.
Put a fire extinguisher nearby.
You don't put water on an electrical fire.

Before the electrician gets there, turn off as many electrical devices as you can.
Don't run all at one time.
Run just when needed.
Electric water heater.
Space heaters.
Vent fans.
Electric Stove.
Electric Oven.
Microwave.
Heat AC.
Electric Dryer.
Washing machine.
Power tools.
Big screen TV.
The outdoor lights, and swimming pool pump.
Turn off as many indoor lights as possible.

Now the freezers and refrigerator have to stay on.
Clean out the grilles so they run more efficiently.

Reducing your power consumption will be good practice.
When you call the electrician, tell him the brand and amperage of your main breaker.

If the whole box needs replacement, you might want to upgrade the service to 150Amp.
Some areas, it's code that old panels have to be upgraded to more amperage ... but the electrician will know the details. Call local electric supply house to double-check what the electrician tells you.

Dryer runs but does not get hot to dry clothes


Hello there:
There are a couple of things to check if the dryer does not heat properly
There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Curcuit wiring


Black will normaly go to the breaker on a 110 circuit white is ground and the bare is secoundary ground..You should see this with the cover removed. BE VERY CAREFULL AS THERE IS POWER INSIDE THE BOX AT ALL TIMES AND A WRONG MOVE COULD SEND YOU TO THE UNDERTAKER,EVEN IF YOU TURN OFF THE MAIN BREAKER THERE IS STILL POWER COMING INTO THE BOX THAT COULD KILL YOU...If i were you i might call a friend ta help.

The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
