How to check an electrical system is safe

How to check an electrical system is safe

There are some tell-tale signs that your system is out of date and unsafe to work on (old-style rubber-sheathed cable, for example). But even if you live in a modern house with an electrical system that's been professionally checked and approved in the past ten years, things can still go wrong. So make sure it's safe before you begin work.

If you're in any doubt, get it checked by a qualified electrician.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reflected its purpose The first switch was faulty one terminal would not tighten down. The replacement was ok. It is however capacity wise far to big as it only controls a downlighter, smaller capacity switch does seem to be available

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design I bought this 3 days ago, would not switch on due to timer segments not connecting with switch, this is because the timer face was slightly loose and segments were not reaching switch. I have solved this by putting a rubber pad in the centre of timer face and when plastic transparent cover is in place it stops any movement away from the body and it has worked since.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wouldn't recomend it I was sold this as an immersion heater timer. The minimum size flex for an immersion is 1.5 sq mm. The distance between the cord grip and the terminals is only 1/2 inch making it impossible to connect and fit the cord grips correctly when using this size cable when the timer is fixed to a wall. The timer possibly works OK if you manage to get it connected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy I wish I read the other reviews before buying this timer. Lasted less than 18 months before needing replacement - very poor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad design, poor construction, one to avoid Superficially easy to fit -- but the two earth wires have to be inserted together into a hole which is concealed from view by part of the plastic casing, making it difficult to install and difficult to determine if the most important of element wiring is robustly secured; the terminal block is badly designed in any event with too little depth to assure that a wire is fully inserted before securing; and there is no apparent visible indication of when the immersion heater is heating. The construction is poor flimsy plastic; I am disappointed -- I have had similar switches from other sources last 20 years and aimed to replace the run of digital ones which have broken after only a few years. However (as it turns out another reviewer has noted) I would not be surprised if this failed within a year. Very disappointing if this is the level of quality of B&Q own label electrical goods.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth buying Lasted less then a year, must have an electrician to install adds greatly to cost. Plastic very thin side switch breaks inside unit after a few uses
