That's the first time I've ever seen something like that. I would venture to say you're lucky it didn't overheat to the point of causing an electrical fire and eventually buring down the house.  :o

What you're seeing is very similar to what happened to houses wired with aluminum years ago. Starts out as slow arcing and eventually builds up heat until you end up with a wire that burned through (the good condition) or a house fire.

Pourquoi ce forum serait-il différent de ma propre maison? L'épouse parle le français, les enfants parlent l'espagnol et je ne comprends pas tout cela.
Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?
