Unhappy having big problems

For the past three weeks anytime the frig compressor goes on the lights flicker. It gets brighter and then goes dimmer. It also happens when other appliances get turned on. Yesterday the coffee maker kept turning off when I plugged it in and turned it on. Any suggestions???

Lights getting brighter is a clssic syptom of a loose neutral. Call the POCO and have them check the lines. It could be loose at the transofrmer, in the lines to the house. in the meter base, or in your main panel.
