My electric keeps tripping. What do I do?

It's likely that an appliance is tripping the electrics. Carry out a trip test to find out:

Switch off and unplug all appliances from every socket including removing light bulbs in affected areas.
Put the trip switch back on.

Plug in appliances/light bulbs one by one – check the trip switch after every appliance you plug in to make sure it hasn’t tripped again.

If the trip switch trips when an appliance is plugged in, this indicates the appliance is faulty (turn the trip switch back on and try it in another socket – if it trips again it is the appliance)
If this does not trip, it indicates a faulty socket/light fitting.

If no faults are identified through this test and your electricity still trips, please contact us
