Outdoor sockets are handy for all kinds of things – including mowing the lawn, using your drill outside or even vacuuming the car. So if yours stopped working, you’d probably want to get it fixed or replaced straightaway. First check your fuse box for a tripped switch. If you can’t spot anything out of the ordinary or you notice burn marks or cracks in the casing, we recommend calling a Part P electrician.
They have all the tools, know-how and credentials to get to the root of the problem quickly and safely. Your electrician will test the socket, wiring and connections. If the unit is beyond repair they’ll remove the old socket and check the wires for damage. If everything is in order, they’ll attach the new back box and secure the conduit and supply cable. They’ll make the relevant connections, turn the power back on and test your new outdoor socket before they go.
