Darlene, do you know which circuit breaker(fuses) controls this circuit, if so it will be matked on the circuit breaker or fuse. It will be marked 15, 20 or something on the handle.

Let us know how it works out.

Hello, and thank you for the assistance. I am not sure which breaker controls this circuit, but can I determine by following the wire back to the panel to that circuit (and then I can see its amp. total)? Is this Correct?

Thanks again. D10

It would be easier to just plug in a lamp and the turn off the breakers one at a time until the lamp goes off. The only down side of this will be all the flashing 12:00 on VCRs Microwave ovens, etc..
