It all started with the power going out in the garage only. I went inside the house and found a breaker tripped at the breaker box. When I turned the power back on, and went back out into the garage, everything seemed fine (lights were on). But an outlet was making a strange sound (almost like a coffee maker gurgle).
I thought the plug itself may have been the problem, so I shut the power off and removed it. Then I turned the power on again and the sound was still there. Please help if you have any idea what could be causing this.
I did have a plug going into this outlet from outside (for christmas lights and a gutter warmber). I plugged it into the inside outlet because the outside outlet would trip from time to time. Could this possibly have something to do with it?
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
