Electricity is dangerous!
You can be injured or killed!
Improper installations can cause fire, injury and death!
Are you qualified to do this work?


National Electrical Code definition, NFPA 70 2008 Article 100 I: Qualified Person. "One who has skills and knowledge related to the construction and operation of the electrical equipment and installations and has received safety training to recognize and avoid the hazards involved."


You are more likely to be killed by 120 volts than any other voltage [120 volts creates the PERFECT fatal current through the human body's electrical resistance!]

I have received notes complaining I have let my blog go dead. I just figure that I don't need to keep repeating the same thing over and over, but maybe I am wrong.
I got the following inquiry from an obvious civilian [not even a novice!]

slowly as days and weeks go by in my house im losing power. first my lights started dimming and eventialy the reseptical lost power. and now my refridguater is slowly running. its an old house with a small porcelin panel. what can i do myselfe before calling an electrician in troubleshooting this problem

Probably nothing. It sounds like it might be an open neutral, but it could be a damaged "hot"
Why are you fooling around with this? ...or do you want to become an amateur fireman as well?
Call an electrician!
