Electrical outlets are one of those necessities that we take for granted. With the ease of use and accessibility, our daily routines would be greatly disrupted without them. So when an outlet isn’t working properly, and we’re faced with an electrical outlet repair, the whole ordeal can feel like a nuisance.
Replacing an outlet may seem straightforward, but it’s not always just the outlet causing problems. And while many do-it-yourselfers attempt to fix the problem on their own, at Mister Sparky Electrician Houston, we highly discourage this – especially if sparks or overheating are associated with the offending outlet.
Problems with Outlets
A malfunctioning outlet can mean many things. Taking clues from the outlet itself can give you a clearer idea of what could be wrong.
Plugs should fit securely in outlet sockets. If they are too loose, this is an indicator that the socket is overly worn and ready for replacement. If you find that more than one outlet in a room in not working, the indication is that the entire electrical system needs to be inspected. On the other hand, if you reset your breaker box and the outlets work again, make sure the circuit doesn’t get overloaded by a few small devices that trip the breaker. Circuits are not supposed to trip the breaker with normal use. If your circuit breaker trips off again –leave it off, and call Mister Sparky for an electrical inspection.
If you are faced with a socket that is heating up or sparking, this is considered an electrical emergency. Do not attempt to continue using the outlet. We encourage you to call Mister Sparky Electrician Houston as soon as possible to schedule an emergency electrician appointment or get your electrical outlet repair scheduled as soon as you can.
