Ever had a faulty appliance at home that you desperately tried to fix and replace by yourself? We’ve all been there.
While it might be tempting to go DIY, save on electrician costs, and repair electrical appliances by ourselves, it is always better to contact a licensed electrician to carry it out. This, of course, is not only because they’re more experienced that you are, but they also know how to conduct such electrical services safely.
Bad wiring, a faulty appliance with a high wattage than the fitting, or short circuits usually cause power sockets and electrical outlets to stop working. Overheating and overloading on power sockets or electrical outlets are not uncommon, but they shouldn’t be happening frequently. Otherwise, it should immediately be fixed by a certified electrician as it might lead to certain home hazards.
Constant usage of electrical switches usually leads to wear-and-tear. While it is often unavoidable, it is important to get damaged electrical switches quickly repaired to prevent electric shocks when used.
There are many reasons why a power socket might produce a spark. Short circuits, water exposure, age, and badly done repairs are just some of them. Make sure to get your power socket or electrical powerpoint installed by a professional electrician to avoid such potential dangers.
Circuit breakers trip whenever overloading occurs, which is when a circuit carries a much heavier electrical load that it can hold. As a result, power failure happens and this turns off electricity in the entire house.

Before you delve into any electrical works in Singapore, it is important to take note of certain considerations to avoid any future electrical problems.
Here are 3 things to consider when planning electrical works in Singapore:
Our light fixtures at home may often unexpectedly shut off for some unknown reason. In this kind of situations, it is best to engage in the services of a licensed electrician – especially if you are unfamiliar with electrical work.
Check if your electrician follows these steps when carrying out a light fixture replacement:
First of all, prepare all the necessary tools and safety instruments needed for the replacement of light fixtures. Make sure that you have the following tools before you carry out work:
Have you ever attempted to carry out DIY electrical repairs, but unfortunately failed? Unless you’re a licensed electrician, then you should never try to delve into any kind of electrical work.
No matter how simple the instructions seem to be online, avoid doing DIY electrical repairs for these reasons:
You should never take any risks when it comes to your safety. Avoid meddling with electrical repair work even when you think you have the most electrical knowledge than any of your family members or peers. Trying to solve electrical problems by yourself can potentially create unexpected fire hazards that can put your family members in danger. Being vaguely familiar with certain aspects of electrical work does not qualify you to fix complicated electrical problems.
The electrical components in your home are all supposed to pass inspection. If you happen to insist on doing a DIY electrical repair, you might overlook certain aspects that need to be thoroughly examined – leading to more complicated electrical problems in the future.
For those who are unfamiliar, a GFI or a Ground Fault Interrupter is an outlet or a switch that has built-in sensors preventing users from getting electrical shocks from faulty electrical wirings. A GFI is mostly used in areas exposed to moisture such as bathrooms where electric shocks may typically happen. A GFI is considered to be one important component that a person without prior knowledge about electrical repair would probably not be aware of. As such, they may likely just install standard outlets that can lead to future problems and risk the safety of anyone near the electrical system.
A typical homeowner might not be aware of electrical connections hidden in their house that can potentially pose electrical hazards. This increases the risk of danger especially when you try to carry out DIY electrical repairs. If you stay in a landed property, you should know that most electrical wiring is hidden in the attic, which are also likely hard to find. Hence, this place is considered the most dangerous area in any home – posing a serious threat to your safety.
One common reason why people opt to do a DIY electrical repair is that they want to save costs, especially when it is considered a “simple” switch repair work. After all, there are often misconceptions that professional electrical services are expensive, which is not true. However, an electrical repair done wrongly can incur more costs in the long run.
When faced with electrical problems, don’t think twice about calling a reliable and trusted electrician to the electrical repair work. These professionals are trained in troubleshooting almost all electrical issue possible. They have the expertise to correctly identify the root cause of any electrical problem. It would be good for your home in the long run.
As we tend to use a variety of electrical appliances everyday, we often forget to check whether their wirings are still securely intact.
Don’t fret as we’re here to guide you through the different signs indicating a need for an electrical wiring repair and replacement:
Electrical wirings in your house are all subject to frays due to heat, age, corrosion, and general wear-and-tear. On the other hand, screws or nails are also likely to damage the wires with their sharp edges. More often than not, rodents also chew on electrical wires, which can lead to eventual damage. If you sense any kind of rodent activity, make sure to check each wiring in your house and look for potential frays. This damaged electrical wiring poses a serious threat to your safety as it can lead to further electrical problems. Hence, get a professional electrician to do an electrical rewiring immediately.
Found any scorch marks or warm, burnt spots on your electrical switches or outlets? These might be signs of electrical wiring in Singapore that’s not properly done. Do take note that electrical switches and outlets should not be warm to touch, otherwise, it may indicate a case of overheating.
Circuit breakers that frequently trip most likely indicate a case of overloading. Replace your electrical panel immediately if you sense any kind of damage on your circuit breaker or electrical wiring. To avoid such problems, always opt for a professional electrical wiring installation service, especially when you already need to re-install an electrical component or appliance.
Notice a sign of smoke coming out from your electrical wiring, appliance, or power outlet? Quickly turn them off. If you’re unable to locate the cause of the smoke, switch the main power supply or circuit breaker at home and call a certified electrician for help.
If your lighting installations tend to dim when you switch on some electrical outlets, then it is highly likely that your circuit or electrical wiring is overloaded. To ensure your safety, troubleshoot the issue by specifically inspecting both your circuit and electrical wiring. Better yet, call a professional electrician to ensure that your house wiring is working properly.
Frequent usage of electrical appliances can eventually loosen up connections between electrical switches. With this, you should regularly check and ensure all switch plates and outlet covers are in good condition. This allows you to ensure that your electrical wiring is properly and effectively secured inside its container. If you detect any signs of broken, cracked, or missing plates, get those replaced at the earliest possible time or opt for an electrical rewiring service by a professional electrician.
