From the first month in a new house I have had problems with the AFCI tripping in the master bed room. All it takes is a small electrical storm. Thunder does not make a difference so vibration is not the problem.
Last Friday the AFCI in the master bedroom tripped some time around or during a small storm.
Saturday the electricity fluxuated all day causeing my UPSs on my computers in the other AFCI protected room to buzz and rest.
Saturday we had another smaller storm and BOTH AFCIs tripped. A first in the two small bed rooms. Also a CFCI on the end of a 330' run to the automatic gate tripped.
Lightgening is killing me here, can anyone help.
The electrical contractor has replaced the AFCI s four times and now wants to replace the run from the pannel to the main tie-in point in the master bedroom. Thi will tear the hell out of my insulation and wireing n the atic.
Thanks for any help. A local electrician told me this problem is somewhat typical.
