I'm Going To Scream! (UPDATED)
I haven't decided which to do first.
Hot water heater failure here last night, but the problem may not be that simple.
An electrician, my cousin-in-law, is on the way because there's a problem with the water heater's breaker in the panel box. Once the electrical situation is squared away, I may have to call a plumber and get a new hot water heater.
Meanwhile, Mr. AOW's hospital bed — all electric — has quit working. It's frozen, and I can't find any loose wires. I'll need to call a company that provides durable medical equipment.
So much for our planned outing today! That electrical panel box has to be looked at! That loose breaker cannot be ignored.
Why does this kind of thing happen on a day which I should have had a light schedule (one piano lesson to give, followed by an outing with Mr. AOW)?
The problem was something awry in the electrical panel box — something to do with a GFCI outlet not on the same circuit causing a crisis in the panel box. Fixed now. I'm supposed to "watch" the hot water heater to see if the breaker trips again; if it does, we'll have to buy a hot water heater.
We have hot water again!
My gracious cousin-in-law didn't charge for fixing the problems.
