Re: The Electrical:
Are you connected to a 50-amp, 240-volt shoreline? It sounds like an open neutral, and the 240-volts is being 'shared' by both 120-volt hot legs with no neutral to balance the loads. Turn everything off and fix this, because without a neutral to maintain 120 volts per side, your appliances can see excessively high or low voltages based on what's turned on on the opposite 120-volt hot leg.
If you are not connected to two legs of a 120/240 volt system, give some more information about your set-up to go on.
Someone said "Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from bad decisions." I say there are three kinds of people: those who learn from their mistakes, those who learn from the mistakes of others, and those who never learn.
