A blown fuse these days is a rare occurrence because there are other circuit protection measures in place before the fuse is affected. However they do still happen and a lot of people are not even sure what a fuse is or if they have a blown fuse.
Luckily, repairing the problem is quite simple and quick. We always recommend that any electrical repair jobs always be handled by a fully licensed professional, even if the job is easy. There are rules and regulations for a reason, to save lives.
Meter boxes and circuits are an evolving system and something that may have been a certain way a few years ago may well be completely different today. For any suspected blown fuse situations be sure to contact your local electrical company. We are always ready and our team of Geelong sparky’s always have their trucks full of supplies for any electrical repair.
Emergency Blown Fuse Repairs
A fuse is a small electrical component that usually lives in the meter box at the front of a property. It stops any unwanted extra electricity from entering the electrical system. This prevents any overloads or surges. A fuse is the last protection mechanism from any sudden power surges.
There are trips and circuit breakers that precede a fuse so usually when you have a power outage you can switch the trips back on. However, if the circuit breakers are tripping or you have blown a fuse, this is happening for a reason. Very rarely in Victoria the reason is because of lightning.
A more likely scenario is there is a faulty electrical appliance connected to the electrical system.
Other reasons can be due to too many devices plugged into the one power outlet.
