A client of mine calls with a problem. His kitchen lights are cutting off when he uses the oven or stove top. I figured it to be a loose neutral. After looking at the lights and in the panel, I don't see any Neutral issues. Has anyone had this problem come up before?? Its a fairly new home, 5 year old max.

I have re simulated the scenario, lights don't have time to overheat before shutting off. Problem only exists with lights when stove/oven is used.

well you figured it out. there's no problem. tell the client there's nothing wrong, get a check, and hit the road, Cletis.

Sounds like the stove is drawing too many harmonics through the D73 interrupter, possibly on the utility side. Megger all your amps and take a volt reading with your ohm meter.
