Service Call today:
Typical bad neutral symptoms. While checking connections in the old 60A fuse-box, I noticed that the neutral (grounded conductor) was only a #10 (nickle coated copper)!
A year ago, I could've opened the meter can, remove the meter, replaced the "noodle", replace the meter, call WV Power (after the fact) and have a happy customer... Now it will be a service upgrade to 100A, miniumum, with requisite inspection (read-$$$).
Typical 30A Edison fuses on #14 wire too... Probably will need a circuit or two added...
The old wire is in relatively good shape.
Didn't have my camera, the meter is about 9 feet off the ground!
Told her to have the PoCo check their connections too, and I'd get back to her with an estimate on the service change.
A #10 Neutral on a 60A Service... I've seen it all now...
