Case Study

Here we investigate a common customer complaint of some lights flikering. Note this is proprietary information collected on job. DANGER electricity is dangerous and could cause servere injury or even death. Always use a registered electrician for electrical work.
Let's name the customer Buddy. Buddy bought a couple of new plug in heaters on special and installed them in each of his 3 bedrooms. Great so far.
That night Buddy's family used the heaters and a fuse on the switchboard blew. Buddy replaced the wire on the fuse and plugged it back. The fuse blew again immediately. Buddy replaced the wire with a larger one and plugged it back and rejoiced in the fact that he solved the fault and the heaters were running. Big Mistake. 
A few nights later the heaters stopped working again. This time Buddy went to the fuse box and noticed that the fuses were good and there was a burning smell coming from the fuse box. Buddy went onto our contacts page and we were there the sameday.
On inspection of the fuse box we noticed that the cable insulation had melted and the asbestos in his old fuse box was insulating the smoke and heat. We took pictures and showed Buddy informing him that we would now need to replace the cable behind the fuse box to the powerpoints in the wall and advised that the switchboard will need to be upgraded for this same thing not to happen in the future.
Buddy asked us to rewire and upgrade the fuse box. Buddy was lucky and reacted in time on this occasion. The cable fault could have been much worse and bought about disaster.
Let's call this customer Betty. Betty has a rental property which was occupied by a small family. Her property had batten holders which had surface mounted light fittings installed.
Some time ago, one of those batten holder lamps blew
