But when you're the only one without power, that's an indication something's failed on your end. If you flip the breakers and verified that you paid your electric bill this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You've got a problem just a knowledgeable electrical expert can solve.
Never a good indication. Disconnect everything attached to that outlet. Turn the breaker to shut off power to the outlet and call us right now.

Buzzing sounds from the breaker box are another indication of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can trigger a fire. To some individuals, that may sound more like a humming sound.
No matter how you perceive the sound, it is normally a sign of a breaker that's refusing to trip. Breakers are supposed to trip when the circuit overheats. If the breaker is stopping working to do its task, then your circuitry is handling heat and power loads it was never suggested to deal with. Shut down all power and call us right now.
