Burnt Outlet

This one is something you do not want to pass by, any odour at all coming from an outlet or switch, REPLACE!

Even if you feel it doesn't need replacing, REPLACE it anyway.

Causes: Overloaded, worn / loose contacts in outlet, loose wire connections, overloaded and under rated extension cords plugged into it.

Regardless of the cause replace the outlet or switch with a new one.
