pge power problems
« on: October 16, 2016, 11:37:26 AM »

yesterday pge tried to burn our house down.  :tickedoff: luckily someone was home. :) hi low voltage(209-42) due to open neutral, old service to house. took out the computer, the microwave, the tankless water heater and the furnace. the water heater is a rheem rtg-42pvn, trying to find a manual. the furnace blew out a relay on the board, hoping nothing else. just bought this place, haven't made a payment yet. boy is the wife upset.

Have you contacted them about this? They should reimburse you.

It use to be they were responsible for the wires to the house. Trees rubbing and such they trimmed trees,not so much anymore. I have several customers that were told they were responsible to check the lines for problems and notify them. If you had a problem with say a surge, you had to prove that all were in PERFECT working order before the problem arose.???
