HI. We have a vacation home built in the mid-'70's, wood frame, two stories, normal appliances, electric baseboard heat. We had a contractor do some work upgrading the kitchen including the addition of LED
undershelf lighting and some additional outlets
. When we reenergized the circuit there was some clicking noises coming from the circuit breaker
. A local electrician said the breaker contact was worn so the breaker was replaced. Clicking continued so a "grease" was applied which fixed the noise. We have for some time been getting flickering of lights throughout the house. Mostly LEDs and CFLs
, maybe an incandescent or two. Bulbs are securely in the sockets. Could this be worn contacts on numerous or all the breakers also? Is it dangerous? Thank you.
JA: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?
Customer: Built in 70's, not for the flickering problem.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: It depends on what it is.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't believe so.
