Common Electrical Problems:
Below you are going to find some electrical problems that are most common to happen with a home wiring system throughout the New York. Following each of the electrical problems given, there is an explanation.
Light Bulb & Light Fixture Problems
Do Your light bulbs burn out on a regular basis?
There could be a number of reasons that your bulbs are blowing out often, depending where all it happens in your home, and if the bulbs you are buying are right for the situation.
Problem with flickering light bulbs?
This could mean that there is a poor connection in your circuit. It could be a main wire connection if it is happening in pretty much all of the home.
Your bulbs have a recessed lighting problems (goes out and comes back on):
It could be its safety cut-off switch which is intended to stop the bulb from over-heating. What it is telling you is that you have put in either the wrong style of bulb or the wattage is incorrect, meaning that the installation and the ceiling space are closer to the lighting than they should be.
Some are dim and some are brighter:
Perhaps you have had a few different electrical appliances that has died recently, or bulbs have been popping. This is only going to become more destructive to the other equipment in the home. Either there is a bad neutral connection in the main circuit board, or it can be a bad neutral, which shares two different circuits.
Problems With Dead Power Outlets
An entire set of outlets went dead or all the lights went dead:
Have you ever re-set a breaker, or GFCI’s? Do you know how to do this? More than likely you have been left with a bad connection somewhere in a circuit.
Maybe only half of a circuit is working, while the other half has been left not working.
No matter how many years you may have lived in your home, there may be a switch in your walls somewhere that works as an energizer. Another common cause, the usage over a long period of time, this could have caused the cords where you plug things into to get loosened.
Your bathroom outlets may have gone out, as well as your kitchen, outdoor lights, and the garage lights:
Since back in the 1970’s or 1980’s it has been a requirement for the outlets to have a ground wire default interrupter that will kill the electric in these areas (“GFI” or “GFCI”), whenever it senses that you could be shocked because of an electrical issue. It is common for outlets to go dead when a device has been tripped off.
Circuit Breaker Problems – Tripping Breakers
Either an outlet has been tripped off or a circuit breaker has and you cannot reset it:
Do not be tempted to believe it is the breaker or the GFI to blame. It is more than likely protecting (responding) to something that is going on somewhere along the circuit breaker-lines.
Your circuit breaker will often get tripped when a microwave or hair dryer is in use:
When the tripping doesn’t happen right away it could mean that the wattage is too high for the circuit (if they are running in the same circuit as some of the lights). It will be necessary to have a new and separate circuit installed for any heavy-duty items if these overloads cannot be avoided by limiting the use of other items on the same circuit. (See microwave ovens). A lot of hair dryers have a setting for wattage that is low, the use of those may help.
Problems With Electrical Switches
Your wall switch tends to get warmer than it should:
When you are running 600 watts of bulbs or less, dimming switches normally do this. If you find that there is abnormal heat gathering at a receptacle it means that the connection should get immediate attention.
If two switches are supposed to control only one set of lights, but does not work right all of the time:
On occasionally, switches are going to go bad, however, this happens most when a switch has been replaced incorrectly.
Switches Aren’t Working Or Don’t Control Anything.
You may not be the first person to own this home or you might have recently replaced the switch receptacles and perhaps that were disable because they were incorrectly replaced. However, this usually will apply mostly to living rooms and/or bedrooms.
Other Home Electrical Problems:
We have this new dryer, but it will not heat up anymore – the same issue we were having with the old one:
Usually, in cases such as this you will find that there is a bad connection where the dryer is plugged in, or at the circuit breaker. Of course, should you have a fuse box instead of a circuit breaker, the dryer’s fuses may be blown, it has two of them.
The electric bill is outrageous compared to all our other bills:
It could be from the leak in the hot water pipe. If the hot water heater is electric, even the smallest leak can eventually add up to a lot of money. In fact, there are a number of different possibilities for this.
