WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY POWER SUDDENLY TURNS OFF?
Sometimes your power gets shut off for no reason, and you are stuck wondering what to do. Do I turn the circuit breaker on? Do I call for help? Am I supposed to turn everything off first? Don't panic, there are 3 simple steps to follow that will help you get your power turned back on.
Step 1: Turn everything off
The first thing you need to do is turn off all your electric appliances. This is not only a safety precaution but will prevent any of your things from frying or breaking when you to your power back on. Your TV, lights, appliances, video games or anything else that was turned on when the power went out should be shut off or unplugged. Unless you want that to happen it's very important not to forget this step.
Step 2: Find your circuit breaker
Next you need to locate your circuit breaker and turn our power back on. The circuit breaker is a box containing switches to various areas throughout your house and is usually located in the basement. Once you've located this box you need to check and see if any of the switches have been turned off. This can happen to prevent any fires or electrical problems during a storm or simply if too many things are plugged into one outlet. This isn't the only possible problem, and sometimes you may need to call a licensed electrician if you can't find your circuit breaker or if the problem is more complex and you aren't sure what to do.
