Here are the steps to inspect a house for a fuse trip:
- Locate the fuse box or circuit breaker panel in your home.
- Check the switches or fuses to see if any are in the “off” position or have tripped. (The picture show a perfect position where the switch are facing upwards)
- Reset any tripped switches by switching them back to the “on” position or replace any blown fuses with new ones of the same amperage.
- Once all switches are in the “on” position, check to see if any switches or fuses trip again.
- If any switches or fuses trip repeatedly, unplug all appliances and turn off all lights connected to that circuit.
- Turn the switch or replace the fuse again and plug in appliances one by one to determine which one is causing the circuit to trip. (this is why the local Malaysian electrician unwillingly to serve you as this will take a long time and it is hard to make a profit for electrical inspection; especially when the cause of fuse trip is not instantaneous)
- Once you have identified the appliance causing the trip, have it repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician. RUMAWIP are using single phase electric; you only need a PW1 Wireman for this type of inspection and if you can’t find one do consider those old Chinese uncle electrician who is usually reliable (not renovation contractor!)
- Please take note , sometimes it maybe the wiring or ELCB that is spoil but it rarely happens as they are usually more reliable than the appliance. (unless you are using those 1980’s KDK fan lol)
Note: It’s important to exercise caution when inspecting electrical systems and to avoid touching any exposed wires or components. If you’re not comfortable performing these steps yourself, it’s best to hire a licensed electrician to inspect and repair any electrical issues. The real problem is negotiating the right price for these type of work! Fuse trips are extremely rare; yet, they do occur often as a result of cost-cutting renovation work which uses low quality material and low skill worker. (A KDK fan back in the 1990’s can last 80 years & wiring works using Mega Kabel cables last literally forever )
