Hoping by this time, you shut it off, and called an Electrician to look at it. Otherwise if we do not hear from you, we are guessing that it is either fixed, or the box helped to roast Hot Dogs.

The breaker and/or the bus is burning

The bus is what the breaker "plugs" into.

TURN off the power feeding the panel.:yes:

TEST to make sure power is off. :jester:

Test it again. Make SURE you know where the power is coming from. Sometimes it's necessary to pull the meter to kill power. When in doubt, don't do it.

Remove breakers and inspect.

It is likely an AC or other large breaker. Maybe even the main.

If you find a burned breaker, chek the ones adjacent to it.

Be CAREFUL!!
