Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT DO I DO IF MY SAFETY SWITCH TRIPS?

First unplug what electrical appliances you were using at the time and then see if the safety switch resets. If it does the appliance you were using may be faulty. Plug it back in and try it again.
If it trips again: Discard it or get it repaired.
If it does not reset: Unplug all the appliances on the affected circuit and then reset safety switch. If safety switch resets plug the appliances in one at a time and try them. If power trips while plugging appliance in leave that appliance disconnected, it may be faulty and need repair or replacement. If safety switch does not reset with everything unplugged then ring COSGROVE ELECTRICAL for our prompt service.
