Are you sure the stove is on the same circuit ?

Ask Your Own Electrical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We suspect so because the breaker was tripped when the stove went out. But recently the utility co had to reattach the line to the house at the pole. The stove was out then too.

Could this be coincidence?

You need to get an electrician to look at your panel there could be more than one breaker bad in there?

When a power co.has to replace feeders that is never a good thing ?
