This helpful YouTube video shows four signs indicating a serious electrical problem and how to tell if you need to call the local emergency electrician immediately. Electrical faults may occur when someone tampers with the wiring, the circuit’s fuse, or the wiring is not installed correctly. Here is what you need to look out for:

Lights that frequently flicker or dim.
Frequent flickering or dimming of lights can indicate an issue with the wiring. The wire circuits may be degraded or damaged. Call a local emergency electrician immediately before the problem worsens.

2. Sparks from an electrical outlet.
A clear, visible spark sometimes occurs when an appliance is plugged in or out of the wall plug. It may indicate damaged wires or that the outlet was improperly grounded. It can lead to a fire hazard and needs an immediate fix.

3. Buzzing sound from breakers.
A humming or buzzing sound from your breaker box may indicate a damaged circuit system or wiring problems. It needs immediate attention.

4. Burning smell from outlets or appliances.
A burning or burnt plastic smell in a room indicates wires may be overheating. There may be black or brown marks around the outlets or on plugs. This is a serious emergency, and the power must be switched off immediately to prevent an electrical fire from starting. Once the power is switched off, call your local emergency electrician to fix the problem.
