Once the faults have been identified, and labeled, the next logical step is to ask, ‘what caused this to happen?’
- In a circuit, there is an array of situations that could cause a part to malfunction, or completely halt its functioning. As the electrician notes down the observations, they immediately start thinking about the possible causes for them. The reason being that they have been qualified and trained in a way that they are fully aware of the way the circuit is supposed to function. Thus, when a fault presents itself, they are able to logically figure out potential causes and then, through their observations make eliminations.
Components that have burned out, like switches, fuses, coils, and motors, will often be due to fluctuation or excessive intake of voltage. If they find that the problem is with the connection then it is likely that there is a problem with the wiring. They could potentially have been worn out or damaged which leads to a disruption in the flow of current thus causing your equipment to become faulty.
