In Response To: electrical (manuel perez)

A fuse or circuit breaker is like a safety valve for electricity. If the fuse blows or the breaker trips once in a while it's probably no big deal but the way you describe your problem it sounds like something is wrong. Just this morning in our local paper there was a story of 2 young children who died in a house fire. This is serious stuff. If a circuit goes off repeatedly, you've got a problem. It is probably an overloaded circuit but if you're not knowledgable enough to research the problem and fix it, get a qualified electrician. The cost of the electrician is a lot less than a new house or a life. and by the way, do you have working smoke detectors?
