Electrical Wiring Hazards
The odor could be from wires that burn out or outlets that are overloaded. In either case, see it as a hazard. Any type of electrical fire can be dangerous and have the tendency to spread quickly.
To reduce the dangers of a fire spreading, ensure that you have a fire extinguisher specifically for an electric fire. Put out the blaze. Then switch the electricity off at the electrical box or circuit breaker and give us a call. Cutting power helps to prevent any further opportunities for the fire to spread.
If you plug in an appliance and it creates a spark, or you receive a shock, switch off the power immediately. This may be an indication that a ground was not properly installed or the outlet can be short circuiting which can lead to an electrical fire. If the shock is big enough to scorch the plastic outlet and leave a burn mark on the paint that has been applied to your wall. Then it's time to contact a professional.
Electrical Wiring Hazards

It's may be a sign that your electrical system is become worn out and is no longer working efficiently. This not only can put your safety at risk but can increase your electricity bill over time.
May Not Be Your Appliance's Fault
If someone switches on an appliance and the power trips, unplug the machine quickly and flick the power back on. Then, plug in the device again. If the power trips a second time, it may be due to the appliance trying to draw too much power. The circuit may not be able to handle the appliance's wattage which in turn trips the circuit. If there is anything else that may be plugged in along the same wall. Try unplugging those items and then plugging in the appliance that keeps tripping the breaker. If you are able to turn it on and the it does not trip anything. Then it may mean that the outlet you are using for the appliance may not be setup as a dedicated circuit and is sharing power to other devices that are plugged in along the same wall or even in the same room.
