Fixing electrical things around your home sometimes means electrical service panel repair. The electrical service panel is where utility wires deliver electricity for distribution to the many circuits in your home. This Fix-It Guide tells how an electrical service panel works, what often goes wrong, how to identify an electrical service panel problem, and what parts and tools you will need to fix it. It then gives instructions for how to reset a tripped circuit breaker as well as how to perform screw-in fuse replacement, cartridge fuse replacement, and how to test a circuit breaker. If you’ve checked the electrical device and the electrical receptacle, but haven’t found the problem yet, maybe it’s in the service panel, which is sometimes called the main or the fuse box.
Although some home wiring diagnosis and repairs can be done without the potential of shock to the do-it-yourselfer, some may not. Due to the complexity of the electrical systems of your home, don’t take chances. Call the master electricians at Gisela Ramirez for help.
