Default Intermittent issue help

Troubleshooting an intermittent issue:
House is 10 years old
Main breaker is tripping with no other breakers tripping.
Have replaced main breaker, checked all breaker connections.
Does not appear to be load induced as we tuned everything on and only drew 80-85 amps.
Have a surge protector installed.
And had power company install power monitor and it came back clean.
Also have had an issue in which the cat 5 cables are being “blown” out of the back of WiFi router.
Also having issue in which light switches are flipping themselves off.
Tonight when the garage door was opened the main breaker tripped ( first time this has happened).

Any ideas would be appreciated

Get a licensed electrician out there.

Could be that you've got serious issues.

Just get a real electrician to come out and they will find the issue much quicker than you can do.

This is one of few serious item you will have electrician to take a look at the system.

You need to make two calls:

First call an exorcist because that place sounds seriously haunted if switches are being flipped and wires being pulled out.

Secondly call a licensed electrician and get the problems solved as the excess electron flow in that place is feeding the poltergeist far too much power.

You need overt cameras watching these devices which are doing interesting things and then you need covert cameras watching the overt cameras to find out who's doing this.

It's a human doing it. Likely someone who is mentally defective.

Have already had one certified/ licensed electrician out to look at the issue repeatedly.

As well as several exorcist from various religious denominations.

Currently looking for a second electrician to take a look.


Was hoping that maybe someone had seen a similar issue and could provide some insight.

Thank You

I'd say about 999,999 times out of 1,000,000 it's the live ones that make mischief, not the dead ones.
