Circuit Breaker Troubleshooting: Miswiring

Circuit Breaker Troubleshooting: Miswiring

Sometimes the reason for circuit breaker problems is miswiring of the electrical system. Miswiring or electrical wiring mistakes may cause an electrical device to not turn off properly and continue running even after the switch is shut off. Another consequence of miswiring can be electric shock. Typically the shock is not fatal but wiring inaccuracy can cause harm to individuals operating electrical appliances in the home. A problem of this magnitude will require rewiring the circuit or circuits that are affected and testing the entire electrical system to make sure it works properly. Miswiring can also cause appliances, switches and other electrical devices to not operate properly or to not work at all.
When rewiring or running new electrical wire in your home it is important to make sure that the work is done by a professional and get an inspection from the city to ensure that all electrical wiring and circuits meet the electrical code and safety standards.
