If an issue occurs, it can be a sign of a larger problem that needs to be repaired as soon as possible. When your switchboard stops working, it could be because it has overloaded. This is simple to fix, by removing some of the demand on your electricity. However, if the problem is caused by faulty wiring or appliances, professional help is needed to repair any issues safely. When you need help repairing an electrical switchboard, our experienced electricians are here for you.

- There's no power in your home, even though no one else on your street is affected
- Your appliances are plugged in, but they're not turning on
- Circuit breakers keep tripping, or fuses keep blowing
