Electrical fault finding

Why would you need an electrical fault finding service?

Usually, the main reason you would engage an electrician to help locate a fault in your electrical system would be when your switchboard is continuously tripping and you can’t identify the source of the fault.

The source could be a faulty appliance in your home (like a fridge or television) or it could lurk deeper within your electrical system.

When you test your switchboard by turning circuits on and off, you might be able to identify the specific appliance that is tripping your switch. In this case, your work is done.

However in some cases, this won’t do the trick – and that’s where we come in! The licenced team at Plateau Electrical has years of experience in Fault Finding and Rectification.

Finding faults in wiring and installation

This is thanks to our extensive work in new homes and renovations, as well as knowledge of testing that enables us to accurately locate electrical faults. Once we successfully locate the fault, we can rectify issues and provide effective solutions that once again restore safety to your home.

It’s important to remember that these techniques can only be performed by licensed and qualified Level 2 electricians. Working with electricity can be dangerous, so it’s paramount you leave this job to a professional.

Keep your home and family safe with safety switch testing


Did you know that almost half of all house fires in NSW are caused by electrical fires?

A safety switch is a protective measure designed to quickly cut off the electrical supply if a fault within your system (or with an appliance) is detected.

This immediate action can prevent electrical fires, shock, and even death.

Safety switch installation


Safety Switch Installations is now the minimum Australian Standard required on all domestic/residential circuits.

This means that all power, lighting, oven, air conditioning systems, and hot water system circuits need to have a safety switch installed.

Old fuses and circuit breakers are only effective in protecting the cable and the appliances because they are designed to switch off in the event of excess current.

Unfortunately, the threshold for tripping these far exceeds what would seriously injure or kill a person.

New safety switch installations combine all the benefits of the overload protection that circuit breakers do while also providing protection against electric shock.
