I was talking to a male friend who said he didn't know when your lighting blinks on and off, or your light bulbs brightness change in intensity...YOU MAY HAVE ARCHING GOING ON IN YOUR WALLS.

I knew something was wrong, my whole kitchen was electric, so it got to the point when we turned the stove on, the light would start to flicker. Then if someone stomped accross the floor, my kitchen went dead.

So here is what was happening, my wires were separating, so when there was a draw of energy, electric would LEAP across the separation, burning what ever was in it's path.

The construction guys found the cabinet wall between my stove installed cooktop and my refridgerator, totally burnt. It could have turned into an awful fire.

It is a good thing they found it in time. I am waiting on an electrician to come take a look at ours today. The breaker box keeps throwing sparks when anything is turned on a switch is flipped. I am glad you got it taken care of.
