However when you're the only one without power, that's a sign something's gone wrong on your end. If you flip the breakers and verified that you paid your electrical expense this month, and you're still without power, give us a call. You've got a problem only a skilled electrical contractor can fix.
Never a good indication. Disconnect whatever connected to that outlet. Turn the breaker to turn off power to the outlet and call us immediately.

Buzzing noises from the breaker box are another indication of a loose wire or a bad breaker that can cause a fire. To some individuals, that might sound more like a humming sound.
Regardless of how you perceive the sound, it is typically an indication of a breaker that's declining to trip. When the circuit gets too hot, Breakers are supposed to trip. Your electrical wiring is dealing with heat and power loads it was never suggested to manage if the breaker is stopping working to do its task. Shut off all power and call us right now.
This suggests among 3 things: your electrical system is getting overloaded, you have got a short circuit, or you've got a ground fault. Numerous components of your electrical system may have failed to produce those problems.
