My lights are flickering! Where is that coming from?

Your lights are flickering because there is a poor connection or contact somewhere along the circuit, at a main wire outdoors, or in the panel. Finding the point of the problem is not easy. It’s best to contact a trained residential electrician to troubleshoot and repair the problem.

Some of my lights and appliances will go out for a while and come back on later (on their own). How does this happen?

It’s a poor connection that gets poorer sometimes and better at other times. Sometimes it generates heat at the poor spot. Eventually, it will progress towards staying out and never come back on.

My outlets and switches are dead. I’ve checked, tightened, or replaced them all but they’re still dead! What do I do?

The bad connection could be at a nearby working outlet or switch. Or, there could be an odd place you haven’t checked. A smoke alarm box? Doorbell transformer box? Switch in a closet or basement? Contact Main Stream Electric and we will locate the electrical problem and repair your outlets and switches.
