Total Loss Of Power

If your power has gone out but all your neighbours still have electric, it’s likely to be an issue with your own fuses or trip switches.

If you’ve checked these and they appear to be fine, then you could have an internal wiring or appliance fault. Give us a call; we’ll investigate and get your power back on in no time.

Tripped RCD

Residual current devices (more commonly known as RCDs) usually trip because of faulty appliances or wiring. They trip to prevent electrocution and fire, so whilst it might seem like a bit of a nuisance, the RCD is just doing its job!

Turn off all the electrical items in your property and turn them back on one at a time, to identify what’s causing the RCD to trip.

If you still can’t find the cause, get in touch with us and we’ll get to the bottom of it for you!

Blown Fuse

A fuse or circuit breaker trips the electrical power flow to protect an electrical circuit from damage.

If the same fuse keeps blowing on an electrical circuit, it could be due to a faulty electrical appliance, a short circuit fault or circuit overloading.

If you’re having trouble with a fuse repeatedly blowing, let us know and our electricians in Wigan will get it fixed.

Lights Not Working

Many of us take a well-lit home for granted. If your lights aren’t working, don’t spend much time thinking, “It can’t be the bulb, they’re supposed to last ten years.” Some of them don’t even last ten months!

If you’ve ruled out faulty bulbs and blown fuses, it could be a wiring problem. Call PNP Electrical and we’ll be there quick as a flash. See what we did there?

Immersion Heater Not Working

Faulty immersion heaters are often caused by limescale build-up within the immersion tank. This can eat away at the copper element and cause it to short circuit.

The element that might need replacing is encased inside the tank. Only a qualified and experienced electrician should replace this element.
