breaker breaker

My landlord's bathroom lost electricity so I checked the breaker. Seemed ok, all other electricity in house was fine. I switched another breaker in to the poosition and the lights still did not come on. Took the breaker to store and they said it was ok, so there must be a short. I am NOT electrically minded, I looked under the wall plates of the switch and the plug receptacle, did not see and sign of short flaming up. Am I just at the call the electrician point?

Yes, since this sounds like a rental property and not your own home.

Iím with PCboss. If the owner has not authorized you to fix any equipment in their home, you are not allowed to fix it. Call the owner, and have them deal with it. Save yourself from any liability!!!

You're acting as your landlord's electrician? I don't like the sound of that.
