Checking the Fuse Box

Martha Stewart Living, November 1999

Checking a fuse or circuit breaker needn't be an aerobic exercise. Instead of jogging between the electrical panel in the basement and the outlet upstairs, enlist your vacuum cleaner as an assistant. Plug the vacuum into the suspect outlet, with its switch turned on. When you have restored power to that circuit the vacuum will signal with its noise.
