Fixing an Electrical Outlet

I have an electrical plug outlet that loses power. I checked the power panel for a tripped breaker, but none found. After waiting for an hour or longer the plug will have power. Is it a ground or short problem for this circuit? How to correct it? Is it safe to continue using it?

It sounds like you have a lose connection. The sparks from this can burn your house down. Get it fixed by an electrician. (09/08/2010)
