I would call for service because you may have a wiring issue, if its worth calling for service i would , I wouldnt leave it plugged in though, the only other thing I can think of is a bad wire somewhere underneath. wish I could help more but without knowing where its comming from I dont know what to tell you to look for. thanks Bryan
