Folks Some advice required please. Over the past couple of weeks we have experienced multiple brief power cuts. Less then 30 secs is the norm. Irritating to say the least as we have to go around re-setting all the clocks etc. A bigger concern is that we are also having periods of reduced power. We can tell this is happening as: 1) All the lights go dim - orange colour. 2) Some items stop running - Microwave - Electric oven fans drop in speed etc. The same is happening to our neighbours. EDF have now said that "somebody/something" is putting a drain on the supply but they cannot locate the culprit. This is because the issue is intermittent. You may know from a previous thread that my Plasma TV was damaged as a result of rapid power cuts. I am now starting to get really ****** off with the situation but cannot seem to get much help with EDF - who in fairness to them have investigated. We live in a rural area and the power is all from overhead lines. Now one of my neighbours purchased (last year) an industrial sized Log Splitter. This is a huge bit of kit and is driven by electricity. There have been suggestions that this maybe the culprit. Unfortunately he is the neighbour from hell that nobody (including me) speaks to. He would also if approached deny anything/everything. This why he is the neighbour from hell (past personal experience has shown this to be true). Do I say to EDF that I think that this could be the cause - When I don't actually know? Can an industrial Log Splitter draw this much current that it would have the effect that we see?
