One room no power??
Ok so i have been doing some repairs and junk on the house and i was using my circular saw and it flicked on real quick and turned off as well with the lights.
its in a bedroom and every plug turned off. so the first thing i do is check the breaker, it didnt blow, so i check all the plugs in the room and no power.
but when i take apart the box and touch the black wire to the box (grounding it) it sparks and blows the breaker. so i turn the breaker on again.. and once again no power but i can still blow the breakers on all the plugs with grounding the black wire.
i wouldnt think there is a gfci in the master bedroom with no backroom? its a 1965 house with original electric. does it sound like a gfci problem? maybe they installed a gfci in the attic?
