What is wrong with my electrical outlet?

There are many ways an outlet can break. They can lose power entirely or they can get worn out to the point that plugs will no longer stay plugged in. Nothing you plug into the outlet works or nothing stays plugged in. These are the two common problems we see when our clients call us to help them repair their electrical outlets. The other possibilities are a short in the wiring somewhere in the circuit or the actual item being plugged in could be faulty too.

How do I fix my electrical outlet, safely?

The safest way to fix your electrical outlet is to call a licensed electrician. There will be no safer or more convenient way to have your electrical outlet restored to its working condition. An electrician will take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of your home and your family.

If you do not have any prior electrical experience we do not suggest you touch your electrical components without proper supervision.

Do I need to replace my electrical outlet?

In most cases, you will need to replace the entire device. Sometimes the repair that is needed is not located in the device itself. A break can occur in the circuit to the panel, the circuit to the load, or it can occur in the item you’re trying to plugin. If it’s not the electrical outlet there is no need to worry. We can help with all of your electrical repair needs including cords and lamps.

What kind of options do I have when replacing my electrical outlets?

You don’t have to just put the same outlet type right back in. If you have a break and need to replace the outlet anyway you might as well take the time to consider upgrading your electrical outlets to something more useful. You can ask your electrician what they carry in stock or you can choose your own brand of outlet.
