How to identify electrical faults

How to identify electrical faults

It's annoying if an electrical socket or appliance doesn't work. But with a bit of logical detective work, you should be able to find the cause of the problem - and, in many cases, correct the fault yourself. Before you begin any kind of electrical work, though, you'll need to know how to isolate a circuit and double-check that it's dead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I purchased this as I needed to find live wires amongst a group and it worked perfectly! Glad I read previous reviews though as you do need to unwrap the batteries before use which I wouldn't have thought to do, it does not state anywhere on the packaging which is pretty bad for B&Q, but once I'd done that, tested it on a few items, then got on with the task at hand. Good value too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery orientation Make sure the batteries are inserted as described on the pen body - after removing the plastic insulation I put them in the same way they were shipped which did not work and the device became hot. Once in the right way round it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not be without my B&Q voltage tester. I have had my voltage tester for over a year and found it to be faultless if used properly. When it has failed to illuminate the cause has always been an earthed cable or sheath between the live cable and the tester. If you need to identify whether a flexible cable is live or otherwise, just wipe the tester around the flex, and the tester will illuminate when it is closest to the phase core. It will not detect cables enclosed in earthed metal conduit or sheathing; there is a need to try the detector at a non-conductive accessory such as a lighting switch or a socket outlet. The same may apply to more expensive voltage testers. I would not be without my B&Q voltage tester.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does as advertised I bought this to test for a dead feed from my consumer unit and even though the 2.5mm FT&E cable was quite close to other feeds it did a fine job in identifying the faulty cable. It also proved successful in finding a failed fairy light bulb in a Xmas tree chain of lights in a few seconds! Overall a very useful tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described I have been using this for a month now. My unit works as described, detects "hot" wires reliably, and I have had no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works like a dream I bought this as i had misplaced my more expensive one and needed one quickly, despite the other bad reviews i thought i'd give it a shot as i figure B&Q wouldnt deliberately sell unreliable rubbish. when i first took it out of the packaging and tried it on the kettle nothing happened, and i thought i may have been hasty. however with a bit of fault finding i realised that I had neglected to unwrap the batteries which are sealed whilst in packaging. after these are removed the wand works like a dream. the detector is accurate enough to be used in a bundle of wires to find the lives amongst the not lives with accurate results. i'd recommend this for anyone who doesnt want to spend a fortune and if you get it home and cant get it to work, remember to chek the batteries.
