Help, My Safety Switch Keeps Tripping!
If the electrical safety switch keeps tripping, then it’s saving you from a world of trouble. The RCD safety switch (Residual Current Device) is designed to protect you from the risks of electrocution and fire hazards.
The safety switch detects faults and immediately shuts off the power. This can be caused by too many appliances running simultaneously or something damaging the electrical wiring.
The fix for a tripped switch often involves simply visiting the electrical meter box, finding the safety switch, and flipping it from the ‘OFF’ position to ‘ON’. However, if a faulty appliance trips the switch, the most cost effective solution involves purchasing a replacement.
You can always test your safety switch by pressing the adjacent button to ensure it’s in working order.
If the test fails or the safety switch can’t be flipped back on, then it’s time to call in a local electrician. A Metropolitan electrician can test the circuit to locate the source of the problem and provide any essential electrical work to get the power back up and running.
Having safety switches installed keeps the family and home safe against worse case scenarios. So, call a licensed electrician today to upgrade or explore your options. We’re open 24/7!
