    Default Anybody know a good residential electrician?

    I have to get an electrician out to the house tomorrow, got some weird shit going on with the house and DTE determined it ain't them or the feed to the house, so i need a electrician to come check out my breaker panel to hopefully diagnose my problems.

    Thanks ahead of time all!

    Power doing weird shit like a brown out when i ran the microwave causing TV, lights and stove to flake out and turn off, even on different breakers. Go to basement to check breaker box and find the neutral bar is arcing and sizzling like bacon with a weird hum. Not cool, and after DTE it is better but not fixed, as we tightened everything, but i prefer a electrician clean bill of health.

    Talk to your neighbors. Anyone having similar issues?

    We had a wire burn on the transformer behind my house, which caused partial brown-outs for anyone downstream.

    Sounds like you have some loose wires somewhere, might be a good ideal to get someone out for a piece of mind, not worth the risk.

    x2. If they only checked your house & no where else leading up to your house, then DTE should be made aware that they may need to verify the local grid.

    DTE checked the grid, as well as our drop, and out at the pole, poor guy was out in the dark/cold climbing the pole to check things, and redid our taps on the drop, and connections in the meter box. Guess it's electrician time this morning.

    Mine did something similar. Neutral block was loose inside the box and whole house would flicker. I had a local guy come out and redo that. Was interesting watching him cut a section of the old wire out with a sawzall to re-attach the neutral in there after he moved the block.

    How many bus bars in the panel? Are your neutrals and grounds isolated from each other in the panel? If the neutrals and grounds are combined and on multiple bus bars make sure the bonding screws are tight.
