I guess that I came pretty close to burning down the house, and so I feel petty lucky in some respects. At the same time, I am pretty annoyed by this situation, and I guess that I need to get it fixed pretty soon, so that we can go back to cooking in the kitchen again. That is why I have began to look up contact info on electrician in Clifton NJ with the hopes that it will not take me too long to find an electrician that has the availability to come over to my house today and start working on this problem.
It all started as a result of the fact that I was cooking dinner, and I had all four burners on our electric kitchen range on at the same time. I guess I never thought that would be a problem, and I am pretty sure that i have done it before in the past. Anyway, I was using them for a few minutes, before I noticed that the light on the range went off, indicating that none of the burners were on. At the same time, I smelled a little bit smoke coming from underneath the range. I opened up the cabinets beneath the range and noticed that the electrical box beneath the range was partially melted and had turned black in parts from smoke. So I am really glad that this issue did not lead to a fire, and it could have been pretty bad if it did.
But I want to get it fixed, and figure out why the electrical wiring failed when all four burners were on at the same time. It seems like if there are going to be four burners, then the wiring should be set up to handle that many operated simultaneously.
