Not all light switch issues need the assistance of a licensed Sydney electrician. Often, the primary reason why light switches don’t work is that the light bulb is busted. However, there are some instances in which simple switch malfunctions can result in devastating consequences such as house fires. Here, we discuss some of the commonest problems that homeowners complain about & encounter when it comes to light switch features.
- Broken or damaged light switches mechanisms
This is one of the commonest light switch problems that people face. If you find that the light doesn’t get switched off or on regardless of how much you flick the switch, it means the mechanism inside is broken. If the toggle or switch doesn’t stay in place any longer, it means you need to replace the unit. It’s never a good idea to handle switch replacements yourself. Call the experienced Light switch installation experts at Quick Connect Electrical for the job. We have come across several instances where homeowners experience an electrical shock or get burned while replacing light switches by themselves.
- Circuit breaker trip or fuse burnout
A trip in some circuit breaker or a fuse burnout can cause problems in your light switches. If you are experiencing switch problems, purchasing new switches shouldn’t be your first option. It’s important that you inspect the circuit breaker or fuse first to identify whether it has tripped or gotten burned out. If the problem lies at this point, replacing the fuse can solve the problem.
- Lights flickering
One major problem that gets homeowners worried is when the lights begin to flicker as soon as the flip a switch. In most instances, this is caused by a loose fitting bulb, and tightening it solves the problem. However, if the flickering doesn’t stop with this fix, a loose wire under the cover or switch plate may be causing the problem. An electrician from our company can identify and resolve this problem. You should never ignore or defer fixing it because the bare or loose wiring can result in electrical accidents and sometimes even house fires.
- Glowing switches, buzzing or overheating
It is quite normal for a dimmer switch to make a buzzing sound or heat up when in use and you shouldn’t be alarmed by these symptoms. However, if you’re using a standard toggle switch, the heating up/glowing/buzzing of the switch are signs that the breaker is overloaded or there is a loose wire somewhere. In this case, it’s best to call us in to fix the problem.
