Bad Outlets

Sometimes electrical outlets can pass inspection and be installed in your home even if there is a manufacturer’s defect. This is an especially dangerous situation because you would think a brand new electrical device should be problem-free right? Often times, manufacturer errors go unnoticed and can lead to electrical fires in your home because of a bad outlet.

In this short video, you’ll see a perfect example of a manufacturer’s defect that went unnoticed until the outlet started to melt:


With the air conditioner plugged into a different outlet there seemed to be no reason for this outlet to become an electrical hazard. Prevent melted devices and the risk of electrical fires in your home by calling on GEN3 Electric to perform a thorough electrical inspection in your home.
