Electrical Wiring in the Home/Main Breaker box


Mike wrote at 2016-07-06 19:22:14
I have the same problem at my house. On the left side of my box numbers 5,9,10, and 11 are not working. On the right side I have 5,6,7,9, and 10 that don't work. Quite confusing. My lines I believe are under ground so how would I check if so?
