I have a residential house wired in rx single phase, which has a intermitten blicking of lights, they do not go off they just dime. Things I have done or checked. Power co replaced neutral splice at weatherhead. Tightened every connection in panel. Checked ground wire at street side of water meter. Pulled meter and check connections, which were fine.
The dimming seems to happen on every circuit, not just one.
My next step is to call power co. again to check meter,and 230volt lines. Any ideas out there? Mike
Do any lights get brighter at the same time as other lights get dimmer? The neutral at the power company's transformer could be bad, and no amount of solid ground connections in the customer's house will help that. The power company would have to fix that.
Do the lights in neighbors' house (fed by the same transformer) also dim, and at the same time? In addition to the above possible bad neutral at the power company transformer, could be a bad connection on the primary side of the power company transformer, which obviously you don't want to touch!
I would have POCO check all connections at street. I had a problem and they fixed the connection at the weatherhead and were about to leave and insisted they take a look at the street side connection and sure enough there was the problem. Old street in Weston MA, and the connections were corroded at the transformer end.
Had this problem before , and went round and round with power company . Turned out that they dont check connections behind the meter , I had to meet them there , they pulled the meter and I tightened loose neutral in meter base .
Sorry ,I just read you already did that . A logger at panel would tell you if it is inside or outside .
