The case of the mysterious power loss
Our a vintage condo (circa around 1910-11) has recently been having electrical issues.
First, the light switch in the kitchen appeared to have died (once replaced it worked) but then the bedroom that shares a wall has started having issues too - the bedroom ceiling light stopped working, then the outlet on the wall with the kitchen stopped working... now the outlet is working again but the light switch for the ceiling light is cold. We've also tried replacing the ceiling light switch a couple times to no avail (before it went cold).
I'm guessing there is some problem (loose connection? bad wire?) perhaps at the breaker box... maybe in the walls? (Hope not!) Any thoughts on how to pinpoint the issue? I am definitely willing to consult an electrician or handyman, but I'd like to get a better idea of what the issue might be.
