Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Can you provide additional details as to the problem?

2) Do you have lighting that is not working?

3) Is your electrical panel fuses or circuit breakers?

1. Lights fused when I pulled the light cord in the bathroom. Affects all ceiling lights. Wall circuits unaffected. Seemingly lights in cellar on different circuit as still working.
2.Throughout house not working (except cellar)
3. Panel has: 2 up/down fuses, central round push button fuse, 3 up/down fuses

Thanks for the replies.

1) Do you have an AC voltmeter available to take some voltage measurements?

2) Did any of the lighting circuits dim or flicker prior to this problem?

3) What is the amperage of the fuses that are not working? 15 or 20 amps?

4) Have you checked if any of the fuses are blown? Does the reset fuse work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1. No
2. No - went when bulb blew
3. ? Two say B6/6A and three B32/32A

Thanks for the replies.

1) Your question shows that you are in the United States? Sounds like you are in Europe?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In the UK

That's what I thought..........Thanks for confirming.

I will need to opt of of the question as the UK wiring methods are much different than here in the US. We have a few electricians here who have a background on UK wiring methods and they will be better to assist you.

No need to reply back to me. You will be notified once another expert picks up the questions.

Cheers ***** ***** a good weekend..........Thanks.............Kevin
