Switchboard Repair Sutherland Shire

Switchboard Repairs

Blown Fuse

A fuse is a electrical component in your fuse box which is designed to protect an electrical circuit by safely opening the circuit under abnormal high current loads. A fuse contains a metal element wire which is designed to break when short circuit or overloads occur, known as the blown fuse. A blown fuse will need to be repaired as soon as possible and the cause of failure determined by electrical tests. Always ensure to use a licensed and insured electrician from True Local Electricians to change a fuse. If you smell a burning smell or hear a loud bang, check your switchboard immediately.

  • You should never replace a fuse of higher amperage than the blown fuse. This can cause excessive damage to your wiring, appliances and devices which may lead to a house fire and other dangers
  • Don’t attempt to change a fuse if the surface area is wet. This could lead to electric shock causing injury or even death

 

Tripping Circuit Breakers & RCD Safety Switch Tripping

One of the most important pieces of electrical safety equipment you can have installed in your home or business in the Sutherland Shire is an RCD safety switch, more commonly known as Residual Current Device [RCD]. A safety switch is a device located in your switchboard or fuse box that automatically and rapidly shuts your electricity off if an electrical fault has been detected. This will deter the risk of electrical fires, electrical shock, injury or even death.

When a safety switch fails, it has identified that something is not quite right within the electrical circuit and should be dealt with by a licensed electrician. A safety switch that trips has just protected you and others from electric shock and saved your household appliances or device. These kind of faults are known as Overloading or Short Circuits. Australian law states that safety switches must be installed in new homes or businesses for each individual circuit.

 

Common Reasons why RCD Safety Switches Trip

  • Faulty or damaged appliances – all appliances on the effected circuit must be unplugged from the outlet completely
  • Damaged cabling
  • Nuisance tripping
  • Bad weather – Water damage
  • Defective or faulty safety switch

 

How To Avoid Over-Loading

  • Move plug-in appliances to a circuit that is not often used and has plenty of remaining amperage, for example, move high load appliances such as microwaves, kettles, toasters and rice cookers.
  • Reduce lighting loads by replacing incandescent or halogen lamps with the energy efficient LED globes.
  • Have an electrician install additional circuits for high demanding appliances, for example the kitchen area
  • Never turn on too many appliances at once.

Faulty Home Electrics and Fire Risks

The unfortunate statistic is that 20% of fires are caused by electrical faults. Home electrical fires can can start from damaged or faulty outlets, lighting fixtures, power-cord outlets, heaters and faulty or old wiring. Common electrical issues which can present a fire risk include:

Faulty Cabling – is the most common cause of electrical fires. The heat produced on any type of wiring is minimal. Excessive heat is rare because safety switches and fuses (if sized correctly) typically protect this from occurring. Rarely though, failing safety devices or appliances can create far more heat than they are designed to, thus adding extra heat on the wiring causing degradation of the cable insulation with the likelihood of fire damage.

Loose Connections in your power outlets and switchboard can produce excessive heat as they generate a high current over a small area for a long period of time.

Old & Corroded Lighting Fixtures are another common reason for electrical fires, installing the installation of a lamp into a lighting fixture that is too high in wattage for its recommended use is an accident waiting to happen. If your home is over 40 years old it is more than likely wired with VIR or Cotton Sheath wiring which is prone to deterioration. If your home has cotton sheath or VIR cable you should consider re-wiring affected circuits. This outdated sytle of wiring may not have the capacity to handle the increased amount of load required by new appliances such as microwaves, air-conditioner units, washing machines, dryers and the newer model TVs.

Preventing Electrical Fires In Your Home:

  • Upgrade your switchboard to the latest RCD Safety Switches
  • Upgrade to low power LED lighting
  • Look for alternate low power consumption ways to heat & cool your home
  • Check for faulty wiring and report any burning or sparking to your local emergency electrician
  • If your home is wired in the old cotton cable, it should be replaced.
  • Avoid overloading circuits with power hungry appliances
  • Avoid the use of extension cords & power boards. A safer alternative is installing a quad power-point.
  • Make sure cords are not degraded 

Electrical Emergencies from Storms and Floods

Flood and storm damage can create all sorts of emergency electrician problems for Sutherland Shire residents, especially considering the close distance to Cronulla Beach. Following a major storm, restoring power is one of the most common emergency requests we receive. When doing so, we must perform a full electrical inspection to rule out water damage to safety switches, fuses, outlets, wiring, appliances and devices, which will cause circuit tripping.

Hazards From Storm Damage may include:

Power Surges –  a power surge will usually last less than a thousandth of a second. It can occur due to high powered electrical devices creating a spike in electrical current when they are switched on for operation. Household electrical items such as refrigerators, air-con units and heaters are common culprits of power surges. Power surges are also caused by tripped safety switches due to short circuits on faulty wiring.

Lightning Strikes – Strikes close to a power line can cause a power surge. A single strike can cause burnout of multiple appliances including TVs, PCs, Microwaves, Dishwashers, Dryers, Washing Machines etc.

Any type of water damage to wiring allows greater risk of devastating property damage, wires may come exposed and exposing you to electric shock. When appliances or devices are submerged in water, a buzzing noise is coming from light switches or outlets, or water is dripping from lighting fixtures, it’s really time to call an electrician.

Ways To Prepare For A Storm

  • Install a surge protector safety device on your power
  • Isolate your solar power by isolating the safety switch
  • Turn off switches, power outlets and other electrical components
  • Have food essentials, water, hand torch and a emergency kit prepared
