Fault Finding Guide

Fault Finding Guide

You’re in a hurry and you need to know what’s causing a power problem. The above electrical fault finding guide is to help you easily find the electrical fault to self diagnose the problem. There’s also a more detailed step by step guide for the following areas:

Power Points

Fault Finding With Residual Current Breaker With Over-Current (RCBO) 

When you need to find the fault using a RCBO take the following steps:

Check your switch board to confirm something has actually tripped.

Walk around your house and take note of the appliances without power.

Remove all those appliances from their outlets.

Don’t forget appliances such as

  • Dish washers
  • Fridges
  • Range hoods
  • Water tank pumps
  • Pools
  • Septic pumps
  • Outdoor Outdoor appliances. 

Safety Switches

Fault Finding With Multiple Safety Switches

This is a simple step by step process of elimination to ensure you easily find the fault.

Turn off all circuit breakers, including your main switch. (Typically on the left hand side with a red toggle)

Turn the safety switch that tripped back to the on position.

(If it doesn’t reset with everything else in the off position you will most likely need a new safety switch, call a licensed electrician)

If the safety switch stays up;

Turn the main switch back on.

Turn all other circuits back on one by one with a 5-10 second delay between circuit breakers.

If you do have fault, one of the circuit breakers will operate the safety switch.

Once you’ve located the faulty circuit, turn it back off & reset the safety switch. Turn all remaining circuits back on.

Walk around your house and take note of the appliances without power.

Remove all those appliances from their outlets.

Reset the safety switch.

If the safety switch holds move to step 9.

One by one plug the appliances back in until you reach the appliance that trips the safety switch.

Remove that appliance for repair or replacement.


Lighting Faults

Fault Finding Using Lighting

Locating lighting faults is the same process as finding it using power. 

If you have a lighting fault simply turn all the affected light switches off. Then reset the safety switch.

Try to remember any two and three way switching in your house. You only want to switch one of these to its opposite position if you can’t remember if it was on before you lost power.

Now reset your safety switch.

If it stays on:

  • Turn one light on at a time until the safety switch trips
  • When it does trip, turn it back off and reset the safety switch again
  • Leave it off & phone a qualified electrician for repairs
