Electrical switches are the means through which you connect electrical appliances to a power supply, which is then why it remains an integral part of your home. Flipping a light switch turns darkness into bright light, meanwhile using a water heater allows you to turn on water heater supply just as a general wall switch allows you to use other functions around your home. As these are activities that you carry out many times without second thought, this repeated motion will eventually lead to the switch repairs and replacement.

Troubleshooting Common Electrical Switches Problems
Like any other electrical component, electrical switches may run into some problems of their own, especially when they exist for specific purposes. Learn how to identify and troubleshoot these electrical switch problems below:
Problem: Flickering Light Fixture
Notice your light fixture flickering at home? While most people think that it is just a temporary issue that will stop on its own, they’re usually unaware that the problem can be caused by more serious reasons. In such cases, it can be because of a loose electrical wiring or a damaged light bulb. Whatever the problem is, make sure not to meddle with it on your own especially when you do not have any experience handling electrical works. With this, immediately call a licensed electrician to troubleshoot and eventually solve the problem.
Problem: Damaged Wired Devices
Your appliance, light fixture, and even water heater switches might be experiencing an electrical wiring problem when it doesn’t turn on your devices after being flipped. Another reason can be that your light bulb is completely burnt out, which is most likely to happen if you use an unreliable compact fluorescent lamp. Short circuits may also be the reason why electrical switches are malfunctioning.
Problem: Fuse Blows or Circuit Breaker Trips When Electrical Switches Are Turned On
Do your fuses or circuit breakers trip as soon as you turn on your electrical switches at home? Such problems occur mostly because of short circuits, which usually happens when a hot wire touches wither another hot wire or a neutral wire. Wear-and-tear in the circuit’s electrical wiring because of rodents and old age can also cause such a problem – this is more commonly the cause when you see frays on your wires. If you can’t identify the issue, call an experienced electrician quickly to get your wall switch fixed immediately.
Problem: Electrical Switches Hot To Touch When In Use
Both a water heater switch and a wall switch in Singapore can feel hot when regularly used. Such cases involve overloading, where it is carrying more power that it can handle. Like the rest of the previously discussed problems above, electrical switches may also be warm to touch because of faulty wiring. When the problem seems like it poses a threat to your family’s safety, immediately call a professional electrician to troubleshoot your electric power switch as this kind of issue already requires immediate attention.
Problem: Faulty Electrical Switches
There are several signs indicating faulty electrical switches. One of these signs involve not feeling the “snap” that you usually get when you flip the switch. Some of the other signs are when electrical switches make strange noises such buzzing sounds while operating. The most critical sign is when it starts to produce a spark when switched on. This does not only happen to light switches, but also a circuit breaker switch or electrical outlet switches. Remember not to delay such problems and immediately opt to replace your circuit breaker switch when such issues arise.
Signs That You Should Invest In New Electrical Switches
Electrical switches are an important part of every home. Therefore, a quality electrical switch that’s properly installed can help prevent unnecessary burn-outs and electrical issues.
Not sure if you need a brand new electrical switch? Here are some signs:
- Constant electrical shocks, sparks and power trips
- Switches getting too hot after some hours of usage
- Home renovations or modifications to decorations sometimes require you to change your electrical switches
- Electrical rewiring or upgrading other electrical units may warrant you to change the electrical switch to a different type
Factors To Consider When Getting An Electrical Switch Installation Done
While there are more general things to consider when planning electrical works in Singapore, it is also important to take note of more specific factors when getting an electrical installation done:
- For heavy-duty appliances like cookers, washers, and dryers, be sure to ensure that the wall switch installation is done using a high capacity electrical switch capable to manage the high ratings.
- Proper light switch installation could include a dimmer to help control light intensity in rooms like children’s bedrooms, media rooms, and entertainment areas.
- Consider the overall aesthetics of your home when installing electrical switches, there are different styles and colors of switches that will match your home décor and interior design.
- Loose wall switches are unsafe. Once wires are showing at an outlet or electric switch, turn it off from the main electrical box and call for immediate repairs to prevent power failures, electrical shocks or power trips
- The most efficient electric switches are placed close enough to the frequently used electric appliances for convenience.
