I'm back again with another question(s). There was buzzing at the breaker box which sounded as if it is coming from one breaker that leads to the master bedroom. All that was running was a new electrical heater we bought and our alarm clock. Also the lights in the kitchen seem to be overloading the breaker and it trips when we use one additional appliance or one additional light. It seems like the breaker does not really trip, but the lights go out in the kichen (also the outlets that are connected to that breaker)then the breaker will not shut them back on for about 15 to 20 minutes and then the breaker will come back on when we hit it? Seems like we have connections for the living room and kitchen on two breakers, but they are combined. ie some of the breakers in the kitchen are on one breaker, some on another. Then some from the front room is on the one with some from the kitchen and some on the other breaker are both kitchen and front room as well? I hope this makes sense. We did take the electric company up on putting a surge protector on our box outside, could this be causing any problems? Thanks!
