Issues with Electrical Outlets
So what are some common issues that people have with their electrical outlets and what can we do to help? Because the work of an electrician is dangerous, we strongly advise consulting with a professional before you try to troubleshoot any wall outlet issues yourself. There are several problems that can occur when you are dealing with electrical outlets not supplying any power.
Too Many Things Plugged it
If your outlet has been overloaded, your circuit breaker may have tripped causing the power supply to shut off. This is usually a fairly simple fix that requires you to open up your electric panel and flip the breaker switch. Before flipping the breaker back on, you should always make sure that there is nothing plugged into the electrical outlet you are trying to fix. If you have many things plugged into one outlet, this could be the cause of your electrical outlet breaking the circuit.
Flickering Power From Outlet
If you plug a light or something that requires constant power into a faulty outlet, the power may not be constant. If you have a light plugged into an outlet and it is flickering, this may be a sign of faulty wiring. Faulty or old wiring can be a fire hazard, so you should contact a professional immediately to identify the issue.
The Outlet is Hot to the Touch
If you notice that your wall outlet is generating any kind of heat, this may be another sign of old or faulty wiring. Electrical wiring is how power travels into your outlet and is outputted from your appliance. If these wires are in bad condition, you may be able to feel the heat from the electricity through the plastic outlet cover.
