Lauterborn Electric Lauterborn ElectricWe received a call from a customer who was having an issue with their window air conditioner working sporadically. The images show what we found when we opened up the device. Luckily the situation did not become worse.

Here are several things to look for when your electrical receptacles are not working properly.

  1. The device is hot to the touch
  2. The smell of plastic/rubber burning
  3. Crackling sounds coming from the device
  4. A breaker tripping after extended use of device

Intermittent power loss and blinking lights are also warnings that the electric in your home may need professional attention. For all of your electrical emergencies contact your licensed Philadelphia Electricians Lauterborn Electric. Click images to enlarge.
