I've lost all lighting, upstairs and downstairs, except the hall. I've
replaced the 5A fuse wire which had blown but still no lighting and it
hasn't sice blew the fuse. There's electric going through the fuse and there
appears to be no loose or broken connections in the fusebox. Any ideas
please? By the way, the house has been altered by the previous owner and
some of the electrical work is very shoddy. The house is about 30 years old
and as far as I know hasn't had a rewire, so my other question is how much
is a typical rewire to get done, for a 3 bed semi?
I take it upsatirs and down are both on the 5amp fuse then ? Turn ALL
power off check the wireing in the hall that works it might be a short
or a cable loose there that feeds the others (even though it works),
if not maybe the next in line, downstairs hall maybe..... quotes
depend on area and amount of work to be done difficult for a quote,
get 3 quotes from local recomended electricians.
It would be best to turn it all off and check the connections, you
obviously have a problem, if it blew the fuse, could be a short, a
loose cable, damaged connector or cable etc, could be a fire risk etc
if you dont sort it out. If all looks ok just tighten the screws and
check cables, if your still unsure get a electrician to check it out.
