How We Check If there are Issues With Your Fuses
Visual inspection: Look at the fuse to see if the metal wire inside is broken or if the glass window is discolored or blackened. If either of these conditions are present, the fuse is likely blown and not working.
Voltage tester: You can use a voltage tester to check if there is any voltage going through the fuse. To do this, touch the leads of the tester to both ends of the fuse. If the tester lights up or beeps, the fuse is working and has continuity. If the tester does not respond, the fuse is likely blown and not working.
Multimeter: You can also use a multimeter to test the fuse. Set the multimeter to read continuity and touch the leads to both ends of the fuse. If the multimeter beeps or displays a low resistance reading, the fuse is working. If the multimeter does not respond, the fuse is likely blown and not working.
What Problems Do We Encounter
Our electricians solve a variety of fuse problems, including but not limited to:
Blown fuses: This is the most common issue that electricians resolve. Blown fuses occur when the circuit has too much current flowing through it, causing the fuse to melt and disconnect the circuit to protect the electrical system and equipment.
Tripped circuit breakers: A tripped circuit breaker is another common problem that electricians fix. It occurs when a breaker trips because of a surge of electrical current, resulting in a loss of power to the circuit.
Old or outdated fuses: Old or outdated fuses can become a problem because they may not be able to handle the electrical load they were designed for. This can lead to frequent blown fuses and potential safety hazards.
Faulty fuses: Faulty fuses can cause intermittent power outages and be a nuisance to homeowners. Electricians can test the fuse and replace it if necessary.
Improper fuse sizing: Improper fuse sizing can also be a problem. If the fuse is too small for the electrical load it’s serving, it can result in frequent blown fuses. If the fuse is too large, it can cause damage to the electrical equipment and create a fire hazard.
