Gary :

Hi and thank you for using Just Answer

Gary :

OK, for safety reasons, go to your panel/electrical box and either turn off the breakers or remove the fuse. As far as I know there is no fuse in the rangemaster ovens

Gary :

It sounds like you had an over load of some sort. It is best that you kill the power to the /kitchen/room that this is in and also to the rooms that the lights are flickering.

Gary :

Customer:

Hi gary seems to be problems with post. We dont have trip switches we have a fused wire box? with sockets on one ring and lights on the other. Lights are now either getting brighter or duller in all rooms and we cant isolate certain rooms. Any advice

Customer:

Could the power surges be external?

Hi,

Thanks for getting back. It sounds like it is an outside problem. To me it sounds like the "netural" wire has broken ... also known as the ground wire. The best way to correct the problem is to call your power supplier and inform them. As for you, unplug all appliances, and turn everything off. Without proper grounding, you are going to burn all applianced and everything else out. It would be very wise to call an electrician to double check your home ... if could save you money plus give you peace of mind. If youhave any more questions, please ask. I wish you the best.
