Frequently asked questions

Answers to common questions about

Switch and socket repair

How can I repair a faulty switch or socket on my own?
Diagonal Arrow icon

If you're comfortable working with electrical components, start by turning off the power to the affected area from the circuit breaker. Carefully remove the switch or socket cover, check for loose wires, and ensure all connections are secure. If you find any damaged wires, it's best to replace them using proper tools. Always follow safety guidelines and consider seeking professional help if unsure.

What should I do if my switch or socket isn't working?

First, confirm whether the issue is isolated to a single switch/socket or affects multiple ones. If it's a single unit, try resetting it by turning off the power and checking for any tripped breakers. If the problem persists, consider using the Home+ app to connect with professional electricians who can diagnose and fix the issue safely and efficiently.
