Circuit Overload??

Posted by Kristie on October 19th, 2002 10:13 PM

When I came home today half the power was out to my apartment and the other half only showed dimmed lights. If I turn everything off and then try things one by one, they work. But as I try to turn on multiple things (light, tv, ceiling fan) they either work in a diminished capacity or not at all. The only thing that has changed in the last week is that we installed a ceiling fan into a previous light fixture. Tried resetting the circuit breaker but no luck. When I turn on the stove the lights get brighter. I've called the landlord, but who knows how quick they will help. Don't know where to start and am wondering how dangerous this is, since it's late evening and doubt an electrician could come out this late.
