Suddenly switches won't switch; sockets don't work

Postby WendyD74 » Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:13 pm

Several of my kitchen electrical sockets have started to give issues. Firstly three of them have switches which won't switch, so permanently stuck in the on position, and now 2 of them have stopped providing any electrical supply. I never had any issues previously - the kitchen was an extension completed to a high standard 7 years ago, just a year prior to me buying the house.

Simply Build It

Most likely cause is moisture getting into the sockets, replacement is your only option.
