I'm not in the states anymore. So that's what I meant. Nothing is the way I learned. Its what makes it hard to trouble shoot

From the meter to the street is the power company’s responsibility. From the panel to your house is yours.
So if its a problem with the maim breaker. Its mine, but if it was a connection problem, wouldn't I have a problem on on the 220's?

Sorry bro, don’t no the rules where your at.
No worries. Confuses the fuck out me. Shit is like the 1950's around here. Nothing is ground. They still run two lines for 110. One hot and one not. No ground

Man, I couldn’t tell ya. If you’ve got 3 phase power that’s a hole different ball game.

I'll get up and take a picture of what's coming into the house from the clock tomorrow. Its to weird to do it know in the dark.

Maybe three phase gets lost in translation here. Sometimes words mean different things. But are basically the same words in english

Man i wouldnt hazard a guess because your in a foreign country but i would look for a few things like Obviously loose connections or signs of arcing power for starters because it sounds like your power is fadeing in and out.
Next i would exercise all the breakers(turn them on and off,they should click and not be loose),sometimes after years they corrode.Next i would check my ground to make sure its tight.
After that i would get my hands on a multi meter and start checking everything,Be careful and Good Luck!

Just looking at this pic, you’ve got lots of spliced wires and lots of uncovered copper that points to amateur weekend electricians. Whatever is going on, there’s lots of potential problems no matter what the distribution scheme is there.
My take, you’ll need an Electrician who knows what he’s (she’s) doing, along with some means of ciphering what’s going on there. Good luck.

No bro. Homes are 120/240 in America. The 3 lines u see are two hots and a ground. The neutral is made at the panel.

The breakers is where to start.

Yeah... U see what i mean?

I'm gonna break the voltmeter out. I got a good one. A fluke 115

Never leaned to properly use it. Nows as good as anytime.

To test voltage. On the main 40 amp. In the sketch I drew. On the bottom. I'm assuming the 3 wires are hot on the outside. Ground in the middle.

Can I just attach the black lead to that ug and then go lug to lug with red on the others?
