puzzled by afci
My friend has a garage apartment with a 100 amp subpanel. Recently the tenant has stated that the light circuit, protected with an afci breaker, trips whenever one of the burners on the oven (on a completely separate 50 amp circuit) is turned on.
My thought is that the burner being on is only a coincidence, and the problem is in the light circuit only. A few months ago the tenant said that same light circuit was tripping, turned out the problem was a dead bulb on one of the track lights. It fixed it immediately when we took the dead bulb out. My questions:
1. Do you think it could just be another dead or loose bulb?
2. Is it possible the oven has any effect on the separate AFCI light circuit? I just don't see how.
Also, we are not planning on doing any work in this rental, just looking for obvious like a loose bulb, anything more extensive and an electrician will be called. Thanks for any help.
