    What's happened to the Format of the Forums

    The Forum seems to keep changing its format, very difficult to navigate now, lots of text in the dropdown box's and the top banner scrolls up with navigation so notifications are not visible until you scroll back to the top, definitely not an improvement IMO.

    What happened here?

    Hi, Bit of a strange one today, was using a single socket extension lead and I plugged my hoover into it, turned it on and it started up very briefly before the power to it was cut. Checked if it had tripped an MCB, nope. Next check was the fuse in the plug, thought maybe it was the wrong size...

    Any Ideas Whats Happened To This Switch?

    Hi All, This morning we had a power failure of our shower. When I took the switch off the wall to check for any issues I noticed a section on the load side had "blown" for want of a better word. I'm assuming its something to do with overheating but not sure - any advice? Thanks, Josh

    Domestic What has happened here?

    So our oven stopped heating up. It's done it before and we had the element replaced. This time I took the back off to have a look and found what, to my untrained eye, looks a little concerning. The wire insulation had turned white around the spade connector and crumbled away when touched...

    What actually happened.

    So a bit of a story.... Was in checking out an office for its first EICR. Another company of electrical contractors was in adding some floor boxes. Heard a yell and found a lad looking as if he’d seen a ghost, said he had got a massive belt when removing a radial circuit from an existing box...

    I was conducting a zs test on a 3 phase isolator and the terminals were sparking and snarling when i placed my probes onto them. This has never happened before and i am struggling to understand why it happened on this occasion. It was a 3 lead test: live,neutral, earth etc. It happened across...

    What happened?

    Hi all, trying to understand what I did wrong or what caused my volt meter tip to arc, ruin my tester and trip out rcd & mcb. I had a fluke t100 and have been fault finding a tumble drier. I probed L2 onto heat element to check voltage was present and blew the tip off. What caused this? Cheers
