I know this is a long shot since this is the sort of problem best solved in person, but i know some of you guys are real handymen, so maybe youll be able to help me out.
Problem is, one of the 2 breakers that my apartment runs on keeps flipping. Ive isolated the problem, and solved it (hopefully, turns out i cant run my heater and my microwave at the same time, so i moved my heater), but my problem now is i cant find the breaker to flip it. The first time it happened earlier this week it was early in the morning, so i just went and found my land lady and an electrician came and fixed it. Now its happened again, but its midnight, and my land lady wont be up for 9 more hours.
This wouldnt be such a huge problem, except the breaker thats flipped is the one my fridge is on, and my fridge is crap so in 9 hours all my food will have gone bad. Is there any easy way to find the breakers? I know theyre not in my apartment, and im pretty sure theyre in the laundry room. However, theres no labeled breaker panel. I do know where the main box with the 2 60amp fuses that controls my apartment is though, is there any way i can find out from that where my breaker panels are? The only one i can see that might correct is 2 linked breakers directly under it that says water heater. Im afraid to flip it though incase something goes wrong.
Heres a little diagram of what the electrical system looks like in there
All of the 2 switch breakers are linked to the panel above, 1 for each apartment, which is why i think the water heater switch might be for my apartment. None of them are obviously flipped off, but ive noticed that most of the time when breakers flip, they dont flip all the way off, you manually have to push them off then on.
Is there anything i can do to fix this myself without 1) causing a gas leak, 2) disrupting other tenants hydro, or 3) dooming myself to more spoiled food and the embarassment of telling my land lady i blew a fuse for the second time this week?
