Did you get anything wet anywhere?
Or overload any circuits with to much draw?
You need someone to help you and test it out

Well if you are lucky it will be a bad breaker
Sorry without being there to run some test I can not in good faith explain any further.
Don't want anything bad to happen to you
There are a few things it can be but they will test that breaker and the main power coming in 1st, or should.
Could even be the lines coming to house .

Roger that. The old meter boxes were the power co responsibility. The put in new ones for free but everything below the meter is now my responsibility but since its only been a few weeks since it was installed im hoping there's a warranty

I cant afford a major repair. Are things like this covered under HO insurance since its a fire hazard?

Power guy tested breakers. They are fine. 248. Something on each. These old screw in fuses are next. They look okay, but he said test the resistance of each fuse with the ohms setting with my meter and work my way out from there

So he was able to reset the breaker and tested it good?
Shoot, you may have a short in something downline from the Panel
Any old appliances ie frig freezer that is hardly working or was
ceiling fan any old ones?
Any of the things could have shorted out and cause a direct short.
You won't be able to do this yourself.
Any of your friends know a sparky (electrician) that can give you a break on the charges. Yes it could be expensive depending what it is
simple as a 2 dollars fuse or as expensive as a few 1000 dollars.
Old wires , wall outlets could be anything at this point
Power guy said you had 240volts at the panel right?

Power company just left. All breakers are fine. Next step is check the resistance on each fuse. If the fuses are good i will call an electrician to test that fuse box unless someone can tell me how. I have a meter

He check every leg. Something is going on in the panels. I rented this house out and i just noticed 20 amp fuses in the wrong place. Game plan. Test each fuse and replace it with the proper rated one
