Oops. Old house wiring. Good thing there was a metal box around it or it could have cause a fire. Replace the cable, outlet, and cover. #electrichazard #electrician

I have those covers in my house; does that mean I have the same? The condo was built mid 70s🔥

  • @brendalee3286 Not necessarily. The burnt outlet and the refrigerator not working were indications that there was a bigger problem. Also, the refrigerator was on the same circuit. We rewired it so that the refrigerator was on it's own circuit. These photos don't show the multi-outlet adapter that was plugged in to this outlet.

Overloaded neutral ???

  • @trentelectrical Loose and worn out outlet. Hard to tell because of the damage. See previous reply. Neutral was not shared with another circuit, so probably a loose and arcing connection.
