What would cause this ?
I have a home that was built in 1944-45.
I just bought it and there was no plug in upstairs bathroom.
The ground floor and basement have been renovated but not much was done to top floor.
There is a new 200amp panel on ground floor with room for expansion.
Found out no ground faults in the upstairs. so a retired electrician I know who charges only 30.00 an hour which is all I can spend right now came in and installed a new panel in my panel box then ran a ground fault wire from the ground floor up to the top floor and installed a new ground outlet in the bathroom. also put the switch to turn overhead lamp on the same wire and the fan.
Now it was a big 10 hour job because of the problems getting the wire up but it is done now.
But now when I turn the bathroom light on sometimes it will not work and I have to push the reset light on outlet to then have it work and yet I do not have anything plugged into outlet.
I am probably not explaining this very well but if anyone understands my ramblings please respond. Is this normal?
