Fault Finding and Rectification

With over 15 years’ experience, GoElite Electrical are experts at finding electrical faults that could occur anywhere in your home, office or showroom. We do it quickly and affordably and invariably resolve the issue with the least amount of disruption.

Faulty electrical wiring can cause fires and electrocution. Common causes of electrical faults are poor installations, loose terminals, faulty appliances, overloading, rodent damage, water egress or damaged wiring.

3 common faults are short circuits, earth faults and overloads.

A short circuit is simply a low resistance connection between the two conductors supplying electrical power to any circuit. This results in excessive current flow in the power source through the 'short,' and may even cause the power source to be destroyed. 

An earth fault occurs when a “hot” (active) wire comes into contact with earth (ground). Similar to a short circuit, a large amount of current flows in the circuit causing the protective device to operate.

Overloads occur when too much load is applied to a particular circuit causing the protective device to heat up and open circuit.

GoElite Electrical can repair all of these problems by going through a systematic procedure to find the cause using testing equipment and of course being able to replace or repairing the fault.

Testing for an electrical fault can be extremely hazardous for electricians. The electricity contained in a home can be enough to injure or kill. GoElite Electrical follow all safety precautions and procedures while fault finding.

We determine the cause by careful inspection however, in some cases the fault cannot be identified by observation alone. Testing instruments are then used to identify the fault.

Once we have determined the cause of the faulty operation of the circuit we can then proceed to replace the component.

We test operate the circuit to be sure there are no other faults.

Don’t wait, take the warning signs and have the problems checked out and repaired before something serious happens.
