All of the unlikely events with an electrical issue, faulty appliance or tripping power tends to fall just before a long weekend. This struck again with a night call on the Friday that the customer had lost half of their power to the house. I tried to walk them through some easy electrician fault finding steps but to no avail. So Carling Electrical became their Somerton Park electrician this cold night on the cusp of a long weekend. I normally have some tricks that would lead me to the fault fast but these were coming up with nothing. Unfortunately it came down to splitting the cables throughout the house to track down this menacing fault.

The customer was telling me while working that they were happy that at least one 24 hours electrician answered their phone as many would have gone away for a quick holiday. I did not want to let them down and decided to get some extra info to find this fault fast. When you are fault finding it is a lot of detective work both physically and with some verbal investigation. I found out from the wife that about 2 weeks prior they had a leak repaired and fixed on the far wall but that should have nothing to do with it.



That was my next port of call and with that vital clue I found the issue. The power points on the wall had been getting damp from the initial leak upstairs and had rusted over the terminals. I dried out the cables and made it so no moisture can return. The power points needed replacing but at least I was able to restore the power to the house. So this electrician job was a success and next time instead of them looking for any cheap electrician or southern suburbs electrician, they assured me they will call Carling Electrical.

Recently I had a job where the customer had been a Christie Downs electrician though no one could come out to them. They asked their friend and were referred to Carling Electrical which resulted in us coming down in their hour of need. The issue was no hot water was present at all. Upon asking questions they told me the electric hot water system was recently replaced two days prior. This was puzzling as the tradesman had not checked the operation when finishing and told the customers to consult an Adelaide electrician for further investigation. The issue was found promptly which was a tripped circuit breaker in the main switchboard located at the front of the units. An easy remedy but I felt sorry for the customers who had been taking freezing showers for days.


I informed the customers that if they ever need another electrician job or a 24 hour electrician that will respond, they can call Carling Electrical. The customers were very happy and looking forward to a hot shower. We do take the simple things in life for granted and it is only when they are taken away we realize our true dependence on them. Hopefully if they are in a tight spot again, instead of searching electrician Christie Downs they will call Carling Electrical for a free electrician quote.

When having any electrical appliance in your house you need to be mindful that at some point you need an electrician to either replace or perform maintenance on it. It is up to the occupant to decide when is the time to call an electrician based on suspicion of a fault. I received a phone call from a customer who had been searching electrician Seacombe Gardens on the web and found myself. The customer had stated that their oven was not working and wanted a local electrician to come and fault find.


Upon arriving I started fault finding on the electric oven and found the issue quite fast. The previous person whom the customer had used had not tightened the connections at the back. This had resulted in some arcing and melted the back panel which is very dangerous. The customers were both relieved and shocked. The previous electrician who shall remain nameless was an Adelaide Southern Suburbs electrician that was obviously in a rush. It is best to keep in mind that when hunting for cheap electrician Adelaide, you have a chance of finding the odd lemon. Try and look at their reviews on Facebook for a clue on the quality they offer.


We used this chance to replace their oven for a new electric oven installation. The customer was happy with Carling Electrical and happy they had searched Electrician Seacombe Gardens and found myself.
