I have 2 indoor lights (hallway and garage), 3 vanity lights(small bathroom), 1 outdoor light, an outlet, and a bathroom ventilation fan connected to the same circuit breaker in my house. A few weeks ago, the lights began flickering slightly and progressively worsened until they stopped working all together. The outlet will not power on anything as well. At first I thought it might be a bad circuit breaker so I replaced it, which did not fix the problem. I used a Non-Contact Voltage Detector, which lights up anytime I get near any of the above mentioned end points. Before I have to give away my first-born child to an electrician, does anyone have any idea of what could be the problem? Everything else in my home works fine. Thanks.
