• Also, there are times we get electrical surges that the electricity goes off for 2 minutes then comes back on...Thanks for your help

      Happens at my place, also - I, too, live in an apartment that was originally a house. Years ago, I first experienced the phenomenon. It ended up being a bad transformer that was about to explode. I'm expecting the same thing to happen again. It sure gets annoying when you're on the computer and have to reset clocks afterward.

      Thank you , Glad for your comment
  • Power drops and blinking lights are usually due to a heavy electric load on a switched circuit, such as from a refrigerator or air conditioner compressor. Unless there is something very unusual in the building, or you have generator power, frequent 2-minute blackouts are caused by issues outside and should be reported to the electric utility provider.
