How To Investigate – Electrical Problems Happening Regularly

Look For A Pattern

  • Is the problem:
    • The same RCD or fuse?
    • At the same time of day?
    • After it has rained?
    • When you turn an electrical appliance on or off?
    • At the same point in a washing machine cycle?
    • When your central heating turns on or off?
    • All lights? All electrical sockets? All bulbs?
  • Are the places where faults are happening close together (physically)?
  • Are the places where faults are happening in the same part of the house?
  • When did the fault start?
    • After recent DIY?
    • After recent building work?
  • Does your neighbour get similar problems?

Analyse The Pattern

  • What does the pattern tell you?
  • Look for the common denominator.
  • Is the problem related to:
    • A particular electrical device?
    • A particular fuse or RCD?
    • A particular time of day?
    • A particular set of weather conditions?
    • Recent building work?
    • Recent DIY?

Look For The Obvious

  • Is something hot that shouldn’t be hot?
    • A plug?
    • A power lead?
  • Does anything look burnt or damaged?
  • Is the fuse the correct rating?
    • Typical fuse ratings
  • Is the bulb the correct wattage?
