Signs You Need Breaker Panel Repair

Circuit breaker, service panel, breaker box — the distribution center of your home’s electrical systems goes by many names. But regardless of what name you use, all panels exhibit similar or identical signs of trouble when they’re in need of service:

  • Frequent breaker trips – Trips happen occasionally when too much load is placed on the circuit, which is a common occurrence with high-draw mobile electrical devices like blow dryers and space heaters. However, if breakers are tripping constantly, you may be in need of panel repair.
  • Flickering lights/appliances – Flicking and appliance stuttering happens when excessive load is placed on the breaker or when the breaker is beginning to wear down. You may need repair, or it might be time for a heavy-up panel upgrade to accommodate your increasing electrical needs.
  • Strange, foul, or acrid odors – The smell of burning electrical components is unmistakable, and it should never be ignored. If you notice sharp acrid odors, the smell of burnt plastic, or wisps of smoke from outlets, it’s time to call for service immediately.
  • Loud buzzing and humming from the panel – Older panels might hum very lightly, which indicates a replacement should be sought fairly soon. However, if the buzzing is audible from across the room or is accompanied by any other signs of trouble, it’s time to replace right away.
