Have a 15 amp circuit (with 14 gauge wire of course) which has 2 bedrooms on it now. There are currently 11 outlet boxes, and 2 ceiling fans each with one 60 bulb in them. A contractor adding a sunroom on that will have 2 ceiling fans, one outlet box and one light fixture wants to put that room on the same 15 amp circuit. Will this be ok? or is it too much. currently there are 2 computers, and 2 TVs on this circuit along with a fax machine.
2nd problem: (same circuit) when the fax machine is running and not in sleep mode, the lights flicker in these 2 rooms. I have test it with everything unplugged and one of the ceiling lights on also; I turn fax on and get the flickering until it goes into sleep mode....this is with NOTHING else on or plugged in even. It also does same thing with clothes iron, or hair dryer. Is this a problem? It certainly is annoying. It seems if there is just one device running with one light on, it should not do this....I really need help here! What could be the problem????
