Test/replace shaver socket on bathroom wall
Socket making a crackling noise. Is this about to catch fire/explode?
The shaver socket should be disconnected from the circuit its fed from as its a possibility the transformer could be faulty and could burn itself out.

Sounds like its arcing inside due to either a loose connection or water having got inside. Best to make it safe and turn off the circuit that the shaver point is on and get an electrician in to test the circuit and shaver point and if required fit a new shaver point.
