Hello!

 

My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be able to help you out. I suggest that we test each individual circuit one at a time. It might be something completely different causing these two things to happen or it might be the same thing. We wont know until we get in there and start testing things. Do you have a voltmeter? DO you have access to wiring diagrams?
