Heavy Duty Connection Fault

A common problem with receptacles is also loose wiring on the connection points of the terminals of the receptacle. A loose wire will also make for a bad connection and cause an unusual amount of heat buildup. Loose connections can also cause sparking in the junction box that can result in arcing. You'll likely see burn marks around the terminals if this happens. This is a likely electrical fire in the works if not corrected immediately.
