Melting metal and smoke - two things you do not want in your Circuit Breaker panel!

One of our electricians (Tony) found this at a house in Kenosha, where the customer had an electric dryer outlet was not working. 

Tony found that the circuit breaker was burning up at the buss connection (where the Circuit Breaker connects to the Circuit Breaker panel). 

This is a result of an old Circuit Breaker panel and Circuit Breakers that have heated up due to a loose connection.  They finally failed in smoke and melting metal. 

If you are having issues with an outlet, don't wait until it's too late.  Call Hucker Electric today:  http://www.huckerelectric.com

One of our electrical technicians, Tony, took this video yesterday of a bad splice arcing. This customer had complained of flickering lights and some shoddy splicing was discovered to be causing the problem. Tony re-spliced the wires correctly and all was well.
This kind of bad wire splicing is the cause of MANY home fires.
If you have flickering lights, don't wait - CALL TODAY!

After 20 years in a Zion, IL home, without a single problem, this circuit breaker over-heated and burned up.

This electrical problem could have been much, much worse.  Thankfully, they called the pros for their electrical repair!
