- Burnt out – Power sockets are like every piece of equipment, they have a limited life span. Over time the switch or the contacts can burn out through over use, causing the socket to no longer work.
- Loose or broken connection – house wiring has changed over the years. Older houses generally still have the more brittle wiring, which can break or come loose from fittings – generally when you are doing something like hammering in a new picture hook, or a football goes west and bumps the wall.
- Termites, ants or other pests – pests can do a lot of damage to more than just your internal walls. They can eat through your wiring leaving live wires inside your walls or roof cavity.
If you have a dead socket, don’t ignore it. Call a licensed Brisbane electrician to come out and fix it for you. This is not a DIY job! Stay safe and get in the experts to find out what is wrong.
