Signs Your Outlets Need Some TLC

Of course, plugging an appliance into a dead outlet is a sure sign something is not working properly. Yet there are other signs that you should call one of our Richardson outlet repair specialists to come to inspect the issue.

For your safety, we recommend contacting us if:

  • Your outlets are hot to touch
  • Your outlets emit smoke or there are scorch marks on the plates
  • Your plugs don’t fit snugly into your outlets
  • Your outlets have become warped
  • Your plates are broken, cracked, or not installed
  • Your outlet shocks you when you touch it

Common Causes of Faulty Outlets

Because an outlet is connected to multiple components, there are a multitude of reasons why it no longer works as it should. Oftentimes, outlets shut themselves down the instant they detect a short or whenever they overheat. You can perform quick troubleshooting by testing if other nearby outlets are working, resetting the circuit breaker, or performing a reset if it’s a GFCI outlet.

Consider Upgrading to a Safer or More Convenient Outlet

Most of the time, our Richardson outlet repair experts are able to solve the problem by tightening wire connections or installing an outlet more suitable to your electrical demands. Should you require a new outlet, we highly recommend using this time to upgrade to an outlet that affords you more convenience or protection, such as USB charging capabilities or smart home connections. 

After we conduct a thorough inspection and determine whether a simple repair or replacement would best suit you, we will discuss your options with you. We highly recommend that you upgrade any two-prong outlets to three-prong ones and get in the habit of installing outlets with GFCI or AFCI protection.
