Sizzling sound when plugging in 2018 Hybrid

Periodically, the Pacifica has started making a loud sizzling noise when plugged in (240v) as soon as the EVSE engages. After a few seconds, the EVSE shuts off. After replugging a few times, it doesnt make the noise and charging proceeds normally. Charger works fine in our other cars, and weve never had this problem before. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Im wondering whether its a bad connection in the charge port.

If you have a sizzling sound you definitely need to check it out because it wont likely get better and could be a hazard. It could be something a simple as corrosion on the connector contacts or it could be a wire that is not terminated well. In my opinion you are probably taking a bit of a risk continuing to use it.
