Half my house, like right down middle is suddenly having power problems. The right side appliances and lights are barely on, and the electronics are turning on and then off. Other side of house is fine along with the overhead lights.
Any idea? I have no experience with electrical work. Ignore the picture.
Best diagnostic aside from opening the panel up to test (don't do if you have limited electrical skills) is to check both sides of your service at an electric dryer outlet. Unplug the dryer and check each hot to neutral voltage. Anything more than a few volts difference is a problem and is upstream of the panel breaker. It could be in the panel or service entrance (your problem and $$) or the utilities.
Next best diagnostic: If you have a neighbor fed off the same utility transformer, ask them if they are seeing funny things.
Also: dim lights are a PITA. But if any are getting brighter, you have a neutral problem and could burn out appliances. That needs attention ASAP.
