Found this burned splice. The Hotel was shut down by the fire department because someone smelled smoke. Took an hour to fix :thumbsup:and six hours to get the permit, inspection and utility to re-energize the transformer.:laughing:
This was on South Beach during the Winter Music Conference.

Needless to say, many distractions walking around.

I bet someone forgot to tighten it.

Loose connection is about all that could do it, unless there was a high resistance connection to ground which is unlikely.

It looked like everything was tight.
I did notice some green corrosion on one of the conductors.
It wasn't shorted out just melted.

Oh man I love Florida. I think it was the little chippe with the pink shorts that made that splice burn up ....
