Why is it so dangerous to ignore the fishy smell

One of the most common electrical faults announces itself with a strange fishy smell from a wall socket or switch. Generally, such a smell is caused by the arcing of electrical device.

We see this particular issue time & time again, this particular problem happened when a electric heater rated at around 13A are used for long periods the fuse is working at its full capacity & it becomes so hot it melts through the plastic carrier going un-noticed until the heater stops working or worse causing an electrical fire.

The next time you smell something fishy check the local switches & plugs for signs of heat or burning, if evident turn off the appliance if possible or isolate the circuit & have a qualified electrician carry out the repairs.

Having your fixed wire testing carried out at regular intervals can help prevent these hidden problems from developing into much bigger issues.
