Old fuses

Posted by Jan , on
I have an old type of fuse box and it just tripped. I have changed the fuse wire but it didn’t fix the issue. My ceiling light that are on that circuit are still not working. What else should I try?

You have a direct short on that particular circuit that would need to be investigated by a professional electrician. Also I would also ask that professional about getting that consumer unit upgraded. This would depend on the integrity of the rest of the electrics in the house. Post your call with Rated People and get an electrician to come and visit.
