I recently purchased a 1930s craftsman and hired a recommended electrical company to put in a new masthead, new meter, new 200amp panel, and completely rewire the house. Throughout the work I repeatedly pointed out that my lights now flicker/dim randomly or when something turns on (AC, heater, microwave, vacuum, even the blender). On the final day of work, the main electician called the power company out to see if there was a problem on the power company's end. The power company did some tinkering on their end and said it was all fine. I had the power company rep and my electrician both come inside and watch my lights as I turned on the blender. The power company said, "yeah that's normal. You will have a dip in power when you turn things on." My electrican agreed. I argued that I will not be able to accept flickering lights after paying thousands of dollars for a newly wired house, and if it continued I would have my electrician back out. It has now been several months, and the lights still flicker. Today, one circuit blew and I went to turn it back on at the panel but the breaker will not turn on and only stays in the neutral position. The electrician is sending one of his workers out to take a look at it. Mind you, the "workers" are the ones who wired the entire job. I am a mother of 2 and feel he is not giving it to me straight. I do not think flickering lights are "normal". Please help!
