Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to answer any of your electrical questions.
Hi. It sounds like you have a loose wire. Our a breaker that has started arcing on the buss bar.
a loose wire? It is happening on at least 2 different circuits?
Where did you see it sparking?
right above the main breaker. there are 2 sides it was on the left.
Is it where the wires go into your main breaker? Or did it look like the sparks were coming from behind the main breaker?
about a quarter inch above the breaker. there is a "pigtail" of wires going in to breaker, maybe a metal plate or metal looking tape to secure it. right under that about a quarter inch above breaker
Could you take a picture and post it, so i can see exactly what you are talking about? If not the only thing it can be is a loose connection, or a breaker going bad. The fault is going to be exactly where you see the arc coming from.
Trying to figure out how to send pix.
Did you take the pic and upload it to your computer?
Actually took it on phone
You would have to upload it to your computer then use the paper clip icon
