Jennifer D. Wade Journal

Welcome to my online diary, enjoy your stay!


You know those people who can't walk and chew gum at the same time?  Well, I'm not one of them.

But, it seems I am the kind of person who can't boil water and run the microwave at the same time.  That's what I did a couple of hours ago, and I think I shorted out an outlet!  I had the microwave and the electric kettle plugged into the same outlet.  All went well for about two minutes.  Then, ZAP!  Both appliances stopped working.

I have since tested the appliances in other outlets, and they began working again.  Nothing else in the kitchen stopped working, so I know I didn't trip a curcuit breaker.  The issue seems to be limited to the outlet.  It's the kind that has the black/red buttons for test/reset, but they don't seem to be working.

I'll check it our some more in the morning.  Then, I get to go to work.

Happy Fourth of July!   

Go Back
