Need an emergency electrician for blown fuse? Call Briggs today!
A fuse is a safety component in electrical and electronic devices. A blown fuse results when there is excessive current passing through and the fuse overloads.
A blown fuse can result in personal injury, power failure, and damage to your device or appliance. A blown fuse is also one of the top causes of electrical fires.
So what do you need to do when you have a blown fuse?
A blown fuse needs to be repaired as soon as possible. We do not advise trying to change the fuse yourself, as it can be a dangerous job. Instead, enlist the help of a licensed and qualified emergency electrician.
Important safety tips for a blown fuse
- If a fuse is on the outside of the house, never attempt to change if it is raining and the surface is wet as you are exposed to an electric shock.
- Never replace a fuse with a higher-rated amperage because your device may attract a higher current than your electrical system which can result in an electrical explosion.
We strongly suggest you call our emergency electricians to ensure experienced professionals are the only people who work to replace a blown fuse.

How your electrician will fix a blown fuse
Cut the current
Turn off the main switch of the house and NEVER manipulate any electrical installation without first cutting the current. Ensure all main switches are off.
Identify which fuse is no longer useful
We do this manually by pulling out one fuse at a time and checking whether the fuse wire is intact or broken. Once your emergency electrician has determined which fuse is faulty, they will safety remove it.
Replace the fuse
Now that the faulty fuse has been removed, it can now be replaced with a new one of the same amp rating. Now, we will test the new fuse by raising the switch lever. And just like that – electricity is back!
