odd problem with living room outlets in house
Yesterday, I had three outlets stop working in my living room. I checked the power with a digital meter and they each measured around 20 volts. This house has the older style round type of screw fuses, with the cartridge style 60 amp main fuses. I checked the fuses, but none were blown. I removed all the fuses, waited about an hour, and measured the voltage again. It measured around 122 volts. I plugged the tv and a dsl modem back in. within about 10 minutes the power went out on the tv again.
Again, I unplugged everything, measured the voltage and it was around 20 volts again. I pulled the fuses out again and replaced all the fuses with new fuses, , and waited a while again, but this time the voltage seems to be staying around 20 volts instead of going back up to 120.
Is this an indication of a bad outlet, or would it be a a bad wire somewhere? it seems like if its wiring, shouldn't the fuse be blowing? Also it was very windy yesterday, and I went out and checked the line going to the meter. It does look old, but I didn't really notice any problems with a visual inspection.
Thanks for any advice you may be able to offer!
