An electrical contractor performing maintenance at an existing occupied four-story condominium observed multiple flush mount ceiling fixtures, on the 4th floor common areas, that had pulled away from the ceiling.
The contractor found the ceiling boxes that supported the fixtures had partially melted and were entirely discoloured and brittle. Some of the wire connections inside the box had melted away.
The contractor replaced defective boxes and all fixtures.
