How do I do an appliance test?
An appliance test will help you to identify whether a faulty appliance has caused a loss in power.
- Turn off and unplug every electric appliance in your home – including the fridge/freezer. This will only take a few minutes so any items are unlikely to spoil.
- Go to the fuse board and reset all the switches.
- Then one by one, plug back in every appliance and see if this causes any of the switches on the fuse box to trip.
- If a switch does trip, this indicates a fault with an appliance. Household appliances are the customer responsibility to replace, or repair.
