backstabbed wires

Licensed Commercial Electricians in Ottawa

Are backstabbed wires dangerous?

Yes.  This is an extremely dangerous situation that can lead to fires.  All the wires must be securely in place on outlets and switches.  This prevents the wires from coming loose.  Any of these things can happen as a result of backstabbed wires:

  • Electrical fire
  • Interruption of power
  • Damage from overheating

If you suspect you have backstabbed wiring, contact us at Electricians Ottawa.  We will set up an appointment for an inspection.
