Wiring dilemma: How can one light be on two breakers?


Posted by Louis Jacob on March 1st, 2001 04:42 PM

The light is on a 3-way switch, which doesn't work properly. Surprise surprise. To service, I need to flip two breakers. This was not a problem before the electriction moved and upgraded the breaker box. The old box had several breakers with more than one wire attached. Now each breaker has just one wire. The electition says this will be an expensive fix, unless I jump one of the breakers. (A rough approximation of what he said.) He would do that for me, but I'd prefer to have the separate circuts. Given that I'm already broke from his initial work, I'd like to take this on myself, but I'm having trouble conceptualizing how this could be the case. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance,
Louis
