Why is your fuse box tripping and when should you call an electrician?

When a fuse box trips, it leaves you in the dark, mid-kettle-boiling or mid-hoovering. You have no electricity, but the fix is often relatively easy. The likely answer to your fuse box tripping is an appliance. But why does the circuit trip?

Electric circuits contain a circuit breaker fuse system, which ‘trips’ the electricity to avoid the circuit from overheating. By flicking the switch which is in the ‘Off’ position in your main unit back up to ‘On, you could resolve the issue. However, if your fuse box tripping is a reoccurrence, the most likely cause is a faulty appliance or faulty wiring. You can identify a faulty appliance by turning off and unplugging all electrical items and plugging them back in until the fuse box trips again. The appliance will then need repairing by a professional electrician.

Other reasons for your fuse box tripping include overloaded circuits, damaged cords, or a fault with the main fuse box, all of which should be resolved by a qualified electrician to ensure your safety.
