We work closely with a number of local estate agents and because of this come across numerous common problems that landlords and tenants face. As with all electrical faults and conditions I would strongly advise caution before trying to rectify. I will detail below some ways in which you may be able to help yourself but only if safe to do so.
If you find an electrical problem in you home you should notify your landlord if you are renting or seek professional help if you own.
Ways to help yourself
If you find that you have an issue with the electrical system, sometimes it may be something that you can rectify yourself. If for instance your fuse box trips out, (I would only recommend carrying this out if you have a new consumer unit pictured below) you may be able to isolate which circuit is causing the problem. This way you can have all electrical circuits that are working soundly on until a qualified electrician arrives.
In the picture above all of the isolators are down which as you can see means they are off; there are one or two fuse boards that are actually on in the down position. If you find that one of these are in the down position then that is generally the circuit that is faulty. You can in this situation try to turn it back on and if it works great.
If one of the larger isolators (these have RCD written on them) is off then you can try to turn it back on, however in my opinion, I would turn all individual isolators to the right of these RCD isolators off. Then turn on the RCD that had tripped, if it stays on great if it does not stay on it will require an electrician. If it does stay in the up position I would then advise turning on the individual isolators to the right that we have previously turned off.
At some point I would expect to find that when turning one of the individual isolators back on it will trip the RCD again and you have now found the circuit that is faulty.
