4 Reasons to Replace Your Electrical Panel
- Buzzing Sounds
When things are working properly, you shouldn’t hear anything from your electrical system. Electricity usually flows smoothly and quietly between connections. Loose prongs, loose outlets, or frayed wiring can cause the current to jump, which can create a buzzing sound in the process. If you’re sure a sound is originating at an outlet, stop using it and call MK Electric.
- Hot outlets or switch plates
If an outlet is uncomfortably hot, it needs to be turned off. Take out whatever is plugged into it and try using a different outlet. If the outlet gets hot without anything being plugged into it, it might be wired incorrectly. Call our electricians. We might have you flip the breaker or remove the fuse for that outlet until your system can be serviced.
- Dimming or flickering lights
Light fixtures only draw a small amount of power. If you have dimming or flickering lights, it is rarely caused by a problem with the light fixture itself. This type of issue is usually related to major appliances or space heaters hogging energy from the circuit. Lights dimming could be caused by a washing machine or water heater drawing power to heat water. Our electricians can help you move lights to different circuits or install dedicated lines for major appliances.
If your breaker panel, fuse box or electrical outlet is sparking, you need to call our local electricians immediately. Sparking appliances can indicate the fixture itself is damaged, in which case you will need to call an appliance repair expert. We can come over and test your appliances and the outlet that powers it as well.

Are LED lights better than incandescent?
Do I need to replace my electrical panel?
The main reason for electrical panel installation is that your existing model is too old and doesn’t meet your current electricity needs. In this case, it does not matter if it breaks, but when. Replacing it sooner rather than later makes your home safer and can save you money in the long run. Electrical code updates may require a new circuit panel, or perhaps you’ve decided to convert your home from gas appliances to electric ones — in which case you’ll need another electrical service panel to run all those appliances. Unsure? Schedule an in-home visit with MK Electric.
What’s the difference between a blown fuse and a blown circuit breaker?
When the electrical current that passes through a fuse exceeds the limit, it burns a hole in the thin metal strip. This stops the flow of current, and it means you have blown a fuse. Fuses need to be replaced (not reset).
However, when the electrical current exceeds the limit through a circuit breaker, the breaker trip setting opens to stop the current flow. Then, breakers are re-settable by flipping the handle on the face of the breaker.
What is a GFCI?
You may have seen an electrical outlet with a “test” and “reset” button in the middle – this is a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter). It automatically shuts off an electrical circuit when it detects that the current isn’t flowing correctly. It’s also used to reduce the risk of electrical shock from a receptacle located in damp locations and/or countertop areas.
