|CASE STUDY 1 - FUSE KEEPS BLOWING FOR NO REASON|
|Location:||A house near Southampton University.|
This extra socket was installed in a utility room sometime in 2007.
Shortly afterwards, the homeowner noticed a "funny smell" in the utility room.
Sometimes, the 30A fuse blew for this circuit in the fusebox. The homeowner replaced the
fusewire and everything worked again for a few days until it happened again.
The phone for the handyman who installed the utility room socket didn't answer, so we got a call saying -
"we have a fuse that keeps blowing for no reason, can you come and sort it out ?".
On testing the faulty circuit, we narrowed down the problem to the new socket in the utility room.
