Flickering Lights

jaailaniJuly 3, 2011

Hello everyone. For about 5 months, the lights in the kitchen area, my office which is by the kitchen as well as in the garage, the lights flicker every time I turn on the light switches. Could anyone tell me why this is happening? I had a friend to look at it and he said that my breakers do trip so that's a good thing. I'm very confused and a little nervous because I don't know if it is or could be a fire hazard. I was told to have an electrician take a look at it but until then, do anyone have any suggestions on what is happening?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Are all of these lights on the same circuit (same circuit breaker or fuse)? If so, my guess would be that you have a loose connection somewhere in that circuit. Yes, it can be moderately dangerous because loose connections can heat up and cause fires. I'd certainly have this checked as soon as possible.
