    Hey guys I know some of you on TB are very familiar with electricity so I thought you might be able to help.

    My power recently started going off at least once a day, but its only to about half the house, and it kicks back on within about 10 seconds. The fact that it kicks on tells me that its probably not the breaker, and since its not the whole house it isn't a problem on the power company's end... what gives?

    Call an electrician .... seriously .....

    It could well be as simple as a loose connection at the panel, but it's definitely not something to mess around with if you don't have good electrical background.

    Call an electrician, like right away, before something serious happens .....

    I totally agree with PointBass, and can't emphasize enough the dangers of just letting this go. Something is evidently very wrong. It's time to call a professional.
