I inspected a house over 9 months ago and now some wirenuts melted on the water heater and burnt up the board. A licensed electrician has told my client that a power surge caused the wirenuts to melt. I think it is do to loose wirenuts but the breaker should have tripped or the water heater is shorted out but the breaker did not trip. It was a 40 amp breaker on #8 wiring.
What do you guys think?
And an article about what might went wrong, would be nice.
The electrician never even looked at it, but talked to my client several times on the phone saying I was wrong.
