The cause local overheating of electrical connections is often a poor contact.For a more precise definition of failure is necessary to observe: basking whether the outlet is always or only in case of inclusion in the work of the electric heating element.Heating plug connection with a high energy consumption is an obvious sign of the poor state of the contacts.If the heating is regardless of power consumption may be a drop in resistance caused by wet wiring inside appliances.

Since all conductive elements of the plugs and sockets are made of alloys with high thermal conductivity, heat is distributed quickly.This heat source can be one of the weaknesses of the plug connection.

bad tighten the screws in the socket


As a rule, the main cause of this type of failure is the poor electrical connection in the connection cable wires to the terminals of the socket.Before the repair is necessary to remove the voltage from the power line or off apt.Then, remove the plastic cover of the socket: it is fixed with one or two small bolts.The mechanism of the socket have to get out of the box frame.This will require a pair of side unscrew the screws, which is attached to the metal casing Enclosures, and then loosen the crab catches by releasing the two recessed screws located on the sides of the socket mechanism.After removing the mechanism must be carefully examine the place of connection of electric wires for a deposit or a bad inhaling.The best solution would be to make the connection again, the pre-stripping of the cable wires to the metallic luster.

Weak clamp contact pair


also cause heating of the outlet may be weakening the pressing contact mustache, which includes pin plugs.Eventually, the elasticity of the metal is markedly reduced, due to which electrical connection reliability is lost.Weakened by his mustache needed a screwdriver and gently bend clear of the oxide film.When pressed further mustache springs past need carefully remove and install back after podgibaniem contacts.

Faulty folding fork


generally carried out of the washing machine terminated with a non-removable plastic plug, but if it has been replaced by a collapsible, poor tightening the screws can also be the cause of overheating.Plug the need to disassemble and carry out the same operations as with the contact socket screw connections.

wire fracture


rarely found fault is also considered a cause of intense heat, it is a partial fracture of one of the cores of the cable supplying the washing machine.Determine the exact location of the fracture only visual inspection difficult, so it is better to shorten the lead to 10-15 centimeters, and install a new plug.
