thanks greg,bob,and jd , i know about getting over your head, i'm very carefull, which is why i ask for advice on here. you guys are great like i said befor , no bull and practical,useful info. i think i found the cause, my son had plugged a electric heater into an outlet we didn't usually use ,plus the thermostat on the unit was faulty, would keep turning on and off. the sudden load of the high amps acted like a solenoid kicking on and off. trashed the heater and problem seems to be gone.
