Answer: 
I was intrigued by the question and did a test this way. plugged transmitter into outlet and knowing where the wire is in the room, tried to find it with the receiver. It does not work this way. Either the wire is too far away from the receiver or the + and - wires are side by side and cancels the signal.Sorry.

Answer: 
No, The plug-in signal generator uses power to send a signal to the breaker-box; the receiver detects which breaker is providing the power to the generator plug-in-module.

No, it will only work on a live outlet.
I suggest you disconnect all loads from your dead outlets, and then look at your breaker panel to see which breaker is tripped. The handle will be in an intermediate position between on and off. Push the handle off and then on to reset. If the breaker stays in the on position, the problem is in one of the loads. If not, you have a short in your wiring which should

Answer: 
Maybe, but before I tried that I would want to turn off the breaker for safety. Turn off all the 2 pole 30 amp breakers. One should be the water heater, 5 kw heater/blower or electric clothes dryer.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 82 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool to avoidhome electrical surprises I used this breaker finder on both a friend's home and my own. This helped to map the circuitry exactly as claimed. I am extremely satisfied. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well - if you just read the instructions I bought this 30 minutes ago and it took me just 30 seconds to find the breaker. I was hesitant about purchasing it because of a number of negative comments, but like I say in the review title "JUST READ THE INSTRUCTIONS !!". 1) It is VERY important that you not turn on the receiver until you get to the panel. 2) Slowly scan the ENTIRE panel, and IGNORE any beeps or the flashing green arrow the first time around... just continue your initial first scan. 3) Slowly scan the panel AGAIN, and this time when it beeps, you will have found the correct breaker. I suspect that the unit requires the first scan pass in order to determine the high/low range of signal strengths that it is receiving so that it can remember and then correctly identify the strongest signal the second time around. I've done the brute force thing before by just turning breakers off and on again, all the while running back and forth from the panel.... and then later have had to recover from all of the 'power interruptions' by turning my computer back on, resetting the clocks, etc... but I won't have to do that any more. December 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work consistantly Tested the system on several outlets with known circuit breaker locations. Only verified 1 out of 4 tested. I re-read instructions several times and watched youtube video, and it still only worked on 1 circuit. February 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great time saver This tool worked very well and made mapping my breaker box quick and easy. February 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very unreliable Would not locate the breaker MOST of the time. Tossed it in the trash. January 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works well, but Works as intended. But it has issues. To check a panel with many breakers the ET 300 must be restarted for each test. The on/off button is horrible. A breeze turns it on and must be held for 3 seconds to turn it off. I had one circuit that did not register at all and one test that the arrow and alarm was dead center between 2 breakers requiring the circuit to be turned off to verify! January 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more running back and forth Worked like a champ, but be sure to follow the directions, and scan the breaker panel twice. My only complaint is the sloppy power switch on the scanner device. It's much too sensitive. Just the slightest touch turns it on, and could easily result in the device being put away in the ON position. There should be a more positive "click" when it's turned on or off. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic tool - why didn't I have this years ago? It's not often that I add a tool to my collection that makes me really smile. This one did. I also got the kit with the Edison base outlet and alligator clip outlet. Perfect combo. I have none of the troubles with scanning that some have reported. It works so well it makes me realize just how much time I wasted tracking down circuits over the years. December 8, 2015
