Plug socket repair or replacement South West London


When plug socket replacement is required

Plug sockets that are situated quite low down on interior house walls are very often damaged or broken for any number of reasons. Accidents do happen, however for safety reasons, a cracked or damaged socket should be replaced as soon as possible. Other problems can also occur with plug sockets, for example being unable to get a plug to firmly stay in the socket or being unable to plug into the socket due to what might appear to be a blockage. There are times when the internal parts of a plug socket can become loose or damaged and this too is a sign that a replacement is needed. Any signs of burning or carbon deposits will indicate a serious problem and an immediate replacement will be required. Although it is a relatively simple job to replace a wall mounted plug socket, this work is best carried out by a qualified electrician. Wrong wiring can lead to electric shock.

Can plug sockets be repaired?

If the face of a socket is cracked or broken, or if there are signs of burning then replacement is the only option. If the socket appears to be blocked or if the internal parts of the socket are loose then a repair might be possible. Most internal plug socket components are not available as individual replacement parts but if a particular part has become dislodged then it may be a case of simply putting the part back as it should be. This is generally the case with loose or very tight fitting sockets. However, the problem could possibly reoccur. If a socket does not work at all then it's generally down to a wiring fault. Wires can become loose and dislodged over time so a faulty socket should be checked by a qualified Hamilton Group electrician who will use a tester on the socket to establish whether an electrical current is exists.
