Default Large Appliances no working, pool dead and dimming lights?

Has anyone seen this? Relatively new home with 200 amp panel that has been working fine. Today, pool equipment isn't working, wolf oven has power, but doesn't turn on heating element and lights are dimmer in the home all over.

I've had this in a new house but it was during trim out we found that from the factory it had a bad B phase lug.

In all seriousness, are you an electrician? If so, filling out your profile would greatly help to ensure you're not confused for one of DIYers who occasionally join

Call a licensed electrician immediately.

I believe Cricket said if they're on a phone, there's nothing telling them they need to fill out their profile. This is since the last "upgrade". Fix one break 9.

I use an android exclusively, and its there.

Now maybe those crappy apple phones are different but I doubt it.

I do use tapatalk, not a web browser...maybe thats the difference? But then again that should be the same as the web page.

Yep, Tapatalk is not the same. The mobile web interface is stripped down quite a bit.
