Why Professional Electrical Troubleshooting?

Electricity is a powerful force; when it’s not managed correctly, it can lead to serious damage or even danger. That’s where a licensed electrician comes in. They are trained to handle the nuances of electrical systems, effectively diagnosing problems and providing safe solutions.

Decoding Residential Electrical Complications

Residential electrical issues can occur regardless of whether your home is new or old. In fact, it’s quite common for new properties to experience a host of typical household electrical concerns. As homes age, the frequency of these electrical issues often increase, occasionally becoming hazardous.

Here at DK Electrical Solutions, we strongly advise entrusting residential electrical troubleshooting to the experts.

However, as a homeowner, you might want a basic understanding of your home’s electrical system and wiring. By gaining knowledge about potential electrical problems, you’ll be better positioned to communicate the issues to the electrician when they arrive for service.

Overview of Fundamental Electrical Troubleshooting

In this piece, our team of electricians will touch upon some of the most frequently occurring residential electrical challenges.

Remember, these are merely a few examples and not an exhaustive list of all the electrical hiccups you might encounter in your home. It’s always prudent to have a licensed electrician evaluate your home’s electrical system.

Should you find yourself uncertain about any aspect of your home’s electrical setup, don’t hesitate to inquire about our electrical safety inspection.

Rest assured, no electrical issue is too large or too minor for our team of skilled electricians.

You might laugh off your flickering lights as signs of a haunted house, but there's typically a more rational explanation. Flickering lights can range from being harmless, like a loose light bulb or a bulb nearing its lifespan, to being a symptom of a potentially dangerous issue.

A few serious causes might include:

  • Old, corroded, or loose electrical wiring
  • Voltage fluctuations
  • Overloaded circuits
  • Defective light switches
  • Faulty or loose electrical outlets

Risk vs Harmless:

Any faulty electrical connection can trigger electrical arching, leading to overheating, sparking, and even the risk of an electrical fire.

The Solution:

Our licensed electricians are adept at electrical troubleshooting. Even if you pinpoint the problem, it's strongly advised to leave the repair to the professionals.

Whether wiring upgrades, a circuit panel upgrade, or lighting upgrades, our team of certified electricians has covered it.

For an in-depth understanding of why your lights might be flickering and the appropriate actions for each potential problem, check out our blog post, "Why Are My Lights Flickering?"

Occasional vs Persistent Flickering or Dimming Lights:

Flickering lights occur sporadically, once or twice a day, and then become more frequent. Alternatively, they could persist all the time without any apparent reason. If you observe unusual changes in the frequency and intensity of the flickering, it's a sign that something needs to be pinpointed and fixed before the problem escalates.

Ever plugged in an electrical cord and noticed these warning signs?

Such symptoms could indicate the need to call an electrician to repair or replace the outlet, maintaining the safety and functionality of your home.

Risk vs Harmless:

A loose outlet can, over time, disconnect its connected wires. This could result in an electrical short circuit, sparking, and even pose a potential fire hazard - a dire situation you'd want to prevent.

Solution:

Start by switching off the circuit breaker linked to the loose outlet on your main electrical panel. Following that, contact our bonded and certified electricians.

Should a repair be unfeasible for your loose electrical outlet, we can install a top-quality, safe, and energy-efficient replacement.

Our team at DK Electrical Solutions thrives on electrical troubleshooting. We can thoroughly inspect all your home's electrical outlets to safeguard their operational safety.

Additionally, you'll receive proficient advice on enhancing and updating your electrical systems, if required, with utmost simplicity and minimal disruption.

Normal appliances might generate some heat during operation, but your electrical outlets should never feel warm to the touch.

Immediate action should be taken to unplug electrical cords if:

Risk vs Harmless:

Warm or hot electrical outlets are not to be taken lightly as they pose serious safety concerns. Overheated outlets and switches can ignite electrical fires. Needless to say, an electrical component that shouldn't be hot but is, represents a grave concern.

Solution:

Immediately remove all appliances from the offending outlet and turn off its associated circuit at the mains.

In the case of switches, turn off the switch and its circuit at the mains, then call an electrician. Resist the urge to attempt DIY electrical repairs.

Our initial step is to perform electrical troubleshooting. Once we've identified the problem, we can suggest the most suitable course of action to rectify the issue.

A repeatedly tripping breaker could be a signal of various issues, including:

  • Overloaded circuit – excessive electricity flow
  • An electrical short somewhere in the system
  • Damage or defects in equipment causing a ground fault

Sometimes, the key offenders may be the appliances plugged in, such as a hairdryer, heater, or microwave, which may draw excessive power, causing the breaker to trip.

However, if the breaker continues to trip irrespective of the various appliances plugged in, it could suggest a short in the wiring or outlet.

Risk vs Harmless:

A tripped breaker can be harmless if a single appliance is the source of the problem. Simply avoid using that appliance on that particular outlet. But, if the breaker continues to trip, it’s time to call in an electrician to check the circuit and prevent potential electrical hazards.

Solution:

If the breaker doesn't consistently trip, you can reset the breaker and continue normal use. But, if the tripping persists, it could indicate a short in the wiring or another potentially dangerous issue. In such cases, always seek professional help.

Most of us have experienced an electrical shock at some point, usually when we touch an improperly grounded metal object.

Modern 3-prong outlets are grounded and considerably safer. However, if your home still houses older 2-prong outlets, an electrical shock can sometimes be a risk.

In such cases, electrical troubleshooting of your home's wiring may be required, especially if the wiring doesn't have a safe way to neutralize (or ground) any stray current.

Alternatively, it could be a case of your electrical system being ungrounded despite having three-prong receptacles. In this scenario, you need an electrician to correctly ground the three-prong outlets.

If outlet replacement is necessary, inquire about the types of electrical outlets available with your electrician.

Risk vs Harmless:

Any electrical shock, no matter how minor it seems, should be regarded as a serious issue. If left unchecked, it could escalate into a much larger hazard.

Solution:

If you experience any kind of electrical shock when touching electrical outlets, appliances, or other fixtures connected to your home's wiring, contact us immediately. Refrain from touching the problematic area and don't attempt to fix it yourself. Let the professionals handle it.

Any burning smell linked with an electrical fixture in your home rings a loud alarm bell of something being significantly off.

You need to immediately address the issue and call an electrician if:

  • Your home's electrical outlets are hot or heating up
  • You detect a smell of melted plastic or wiring
  • Smoke is coming from an outlet or appliance
  • You suspect the smell is emerging from within your walls (indicating wiring issues)

Risk vs Harmless:

As the saying goes, 'where there's smoke, there's fire.' A burning smell could certainly signify risk and potentially lead to an electrical fire.

Solution:

Switch off the relevant circuit at the main breaker and disconnect all connected appliances.

Even better, turn off all your circuit mains. Then, step back and call an emergency electrician. If the burning smell continues or you spot smoke or fire, evacuate everyone from the house and dial 911.

You might be familiar with the slight tingle experienced when touching one of your electrical devices. While a mild electric shock might appear trivial, it's an indication of a flaw either in your home's internal wiring or a network fault at the point where power lines interface with your property. Such issues demand immediate attention.

Risk vs Harmless:

Even a mild electric shock is a warning sign of an underlying electrical issue and should not be dismissed as harmless.

Solution:

Promptly distance yourself from the problematic appliance and turn off the circuit connected to it, if possible. It's essential to contact a professional electrician to assess the situation and implement the necessary repairs. Never ignore such signs or try to fix them without professional assistance.

Have you noticed a warm sensation or signs of burns on the wall plate when you install a new light or plug in your coffee maker? If so, it could signal that an excessive amount of electrical current is flowing through it. Such symptoms require the immediate attention of a specialist.

Risk vs Harmless:

Warm or discolored wall plates are not harmless; they signify excessive current that, if left unchecked, could lead to more severe electrical problems.

Solution:

If you detect any warmth or discoloration on your wall plates, discontinue the use of any appliances connected to them, and switch off the related circuit, if possible. You should promptly reach out to a professional electrician to examine the situation and implement appropriate corrective actions. Don't ignore these signs or attempt to address them without expert help.

When a light fixture is overlamped, meaning a bulb with higher wattage than recommended is used, the socket, as well as the underlying wires, can become potential danger zones. Excessively drawn lamps tend to overheat at the socket, causing arcing, a situation where electric sparks are transmitted through the air between wires. Arcing is a primary cause of fires.

If you possess any light fixtures made before 1985, it's recommended to use bulbs of 60 watts or less. For fixtures manufactured within the last 30 years, ensure to adhere to the wattage limit indicated on it.

Risk vs Harmless:

Overheated light sockets are not harmless and could lead to dangerous situations like fires due to arcing.

Solution:

If you detect any signs of overheating in your light sockets, promptly switch off the light fixture and remove the bulb. Reach out to a professional electrician to inspect the situation and rectify the problem. Always adhere to the wattage recommendations for your light fixtures to avoid such issues. Don't ignore these signs or attempt to fix them without professional guidance.

Electric shocks, albeit mild, can be bothersome experiences that sometimes occur when certain light switches are flicked or appliances are used. The problem could originate from the power source or the device itself. If the issue persists with a specific device, it's likely the root cause. However, if an outlet is causing shocks through multiple devices it powers, the issue probably lies with the power source. In this latter situation, it's crucial to have a professional electrician check the matter.

Risk vs Harmless:

Even mild electric shocks are not harmless and often signify underlying electrical issues that could escalate into larger problems if left unaddressed.

Solution:

If you experience electrical shocks, steer clear of the problematic appliance or outlet, and turn off the circuit connected to it. Contacting a professional electrician to investigate the situation and implement the necessary fixes is essential. Pay attention to such occurrences or try to resolve them without professional aid.

I had Dk Electrical Solutions Inc install an attic gable vent fan in my home. The process was fairly quick and easy. Be advised, they don't do free estimates but they are easy to work with and usually ahead of schedule as far as arriving for appointment (but they will call you and make sure you're okay with an early arrival!). The only eeal issue I had was the warranty on the equipment (the fan/parts, etc.). There is no real warranty paperwork, just the installation instructions that come with the fan. That little "manual" has a number on the front page and that identifies your particular unit. I was told to keep that instruction paperwork so that I'd have that ID number if the fan ever needed service. My issue is that nowhere does it say what the actual warranty is (length of years, what's covered, etc.). I think that the installers should have been able to input that ID number into their computer and have it added to my account so that they also have it if I ever need service in the future. That is my only issue with the service from Dk Electrical Solutions Inc. Overall, they did a great job from the super friendly lady I always spoke to on the phone to the guys who did the estimate and installation. 3 thumbs up to Dk Electrical Solutions Inc.

I called DK for a slight flickering of my lights, and the occasional breaker getting thrown by multiple appliances. Figuring it just needed some rebalancing or maybe at most an extra circuit put in.I'm going to post what DK discovered from their invoice below so you can have an idea of what they encountered when they got to testing the wiring:"Split up one circuit currently powering 34 separate things on one circuit into multiple circuits so that the circuitry of the home is laid out closer to the current code standard. Currently there is one 20amp circuit powering the kitchen counter outlets, the dining room lights, the kitchen lights, the family room outlets andfireplace, the fridge, the microwave, the gas stove, the living room and bathroom lights, and the bathroom outlets."Barry and his teammate did a great job. They very clearly outlined the work they intended to do as well as kept me informed the whole day as any new items or changes in plan that had to happen, and kept an eye on saving me as much as he could on an unexpected bill.I feel much safer in my house now that the issues have been dealt with and the service turnaround was incredible. They started the same day they quoted me. When I need electrical work again DK will be the first ones I call.

I can’t sing enough praises about DK Electrical Solutions. Brendan & George are fantastic electricians - incredibly knowledgeable, always listened to my concerns/feedback throughout the project, and even looked a few other issues to determine if there were safety concerns. They’re very diligent about cleaning up & communicating if changes need to be made to project scope. As a woman who manages the majority of home projects/renovations for our family, it’s been so refreshing to have a contractor that listens & respects my knowledge while also providing their expertise. I will definitely use them for all my residential electrical needs moving forward.

So DK has done all the electrical work on my new home—removing the knob & tube, setting up proper GFI in the kitchen and bathrooms, custom under- and over-cabinet lighting, kitchen and bathroom lighting/fans, multiple ceiling fans and chandelier installations, smart dimming switches, setting up Ethernet ports in some rooms, special outlets for kitchen appliances and basement sump pump, installing two camera doorbells at the front and back doors, and even and emergency removal/fix on an old piece of wire in the basement that started smoking. I’ve contracted them to do so much in my ~150yr old home that I’m probably forgetting a few things, but all the work they’ve done is stellar.They’re a fantastic company! All the electricians have been so professional and helpful, and they’ve always explained the situation to me so I understand what’s going on and can make the right choices. Brendan is a really hard worker and very particular about making sure the work is done right and done well, even if it takes him extra time. He’s handled the majority of the work in my home and I have no complaints about any of his work. And Barry saved my home from a potential electrical fire by removing a very old piece of wire that started smoking. Additionally, their office staff is very kind and helpful. I’m also happy with their prices—electrical work isn’t something I believe in cheaping out on, but I still felt that their prices were fair.I feel so much happier and safer in my new home thanks to the DK team! I’ll be contacting them again whenever I want more work done.

Derrick came out promptly, assess the problem, submitted a reasonable estimate for the work, and went through the entire repair process. When he dug down to the conduit the problem was worse the he suspected but he came up with the best solution. Fixed the problem and left the site clean. He certainly named the company right.

We've used DK Electrical twice now - once to fix issues with some of our GFI outlets, and again recently to have two new bathroom exhaust fans and a new outdoor flood light installed. Brendan helped us out both times and is super friendly, professional, honest, and thorough. We've never felt price gouged or pressured, and we'll continue using them whenever we need work done. As first time home owners, it's important to have reliable companies we know and trust to help us maintain our home.

Great job, ask for Barry. He and his assistant fixed several problems that we’ve been having with our switches and outdoor lights. Extremely knowledgeable, hard working and thorough. Very fairly priced. Excellent company..will only use them for future needs.

This was our second time using DK Electrical and we had Brendan and George come out this time. They were able to fix everything that needed to be fixed and install everything we wanted installed in a timely manner. They were professional, friendly, and easy to work with. Everything looks great and was done well. Thanks again!

My mother and I are extremely pleased with the service from DK. Brendan was super thorough when examining the electrical work needed for our gut renovation. He and George were on-time, professional, and always cleaned up after they completed for the day. We are so grateful for them going above and beyond with multiple tasks. The quality of service we received was excellent from start to finish. We definitely recommend DK Electrical Solutions for all of your electric needs!

This is the second time I used DK Electrical Solutions. Brandon and George were very on time. They installed a outlet in my garage another one in my living room and one upstairs in my bathroom. Very friendly and reliable. Explained what he did since had to change a few. I will use again.

Thought I would share my good fortune in finding DK Electrical Solutions Inc. Because as you know - it's hard to find skilled and reliable electricians. Well, I just met two for sure. Brendan and George spent the morning fixing my outdoor GFCI outlets, rewiring an outdoor floodlight, installing a standard ceiling light fixture on our front porch and most importantly, correcting dangerous deficiencies in our rather old circuit breaker.In short, if you are looking for a electrician, I recommend calling DK Electrical Solutions Inc.

We have used DK Electrical Solutions for everything from installing a whole house generator to installing a dedicated line for my glass art kiln. Most recently, Brendan and George installed a new timer and switch on my pool. They arrived on time, and when they discovered the pool needed a new timer, they went right out and got one to finish the job. DK is professional from start to finish. I highly recommend DK Electrical Solutions!

Brendan and George were fantastic. They arrived as scheduled and gave me a very detailed estimate for the repairs I needed. The estimate was within my budget and they were able to do the repairs immediately. Very professional! I will definitely use them again and will recommend them to my friends and family.

Brendan and Garret were prompt, professional and easy to work with. We had 4 outlets that didn’t work properly and needed their help. They explained it could be due to many issues or factors but they got to work and found and fixed the cause in less than 2 hours. Highly recommend!

I can't speak highly enough about Brendan Kuchinka from DK Electrical Solutions. He came out to install a ceiling fan and was super professional, on-time, courteous and reliable. A week later, the fan was making some weird noises. So, Brendan came back out with his assistant Jarred. This time, they had to take the whole fan apart to discover that the electrical box that was originally installed in our home when it was built was barely screwed into the truss, hence causing the fan to be misaligned and making noise. To make it work correctly, he had to reinstall the electrical box correctly and then put the entire fan back together. Before they left, they called me in to check it out and make sure I was satisfied - which I was! I am so grateful for this experience and I would definitely call DK and ask for Brendan for any electrical needs going forward.

Hands down the best electrical company I have ever used. From the initial phone call through the completed electrical work, the customer service of Kimberly at the office, the quality of work done by Brendan and Jarred was amazing. After so many horrible experiences in the past, it was a pleasure working with them. I am so happy with the beautiful work and highly recommend. Save your time and don't look elsewhere! 🙂

I was VERY pleased with the services provided by DK Electrical Solutions. Brendan installed a light fixture in a walk-in closet, and repaired 2 ceiling fans. He explained to me what needed to be done in a way that made it easy for me to understand. He also went over the price for each service, and gave me a price, upfront, for the completed job. The price was fair.Brendan was very knowledgeable, explaining his findings and corrections/actions taken as he completed the repairs.All in all ... a positive and pleasant experience. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use their services in the future. Thank you Brendan !

We initially called DK Electrical to come out and fix some outlets in our new house that weren't generating any power. Brendan came out the same week, and we realized he could also help us install some new outlets that would help hide the wires for our mounting TVs. He was very professional and informative, explaining to us in layman's terms everything he needed to do, and quoted us a fair price for the jobs. He came back a week later and completed everything quickly and efficiently.As a bonus, Kimmy from the main office was a delight to speak with on the phone. She called with updates to confirm our appointments and also to let us know whenever Brendan was on his way.I would 100% recommend DK Electrial Solutions to anyone looking for electrical work in South Jersey.

Brendan came out to give us an estimate and we appreciated his honesty and professionalism. After receiving several estimates, we chose to have our attic fan installed by DK Electric. Their prices were competitive and fair compared to some others. But their warranty on parts and labor was what really sold us. They were very accommodating, working around our busy schedule. Brendan came back with his crew to perform the installation. They were on-time, professional, completed the job within the expected time-frame, and cleaned up the work space in the attic before leaving. We were very pleased with the quality of the recommended parts and service we received, from start to finish. We have already recommended DK Electric to some of our neighbors.

They were very responsive, came to the house quickly, gave honest feedback about what work actually needed to be done instead of trying to just make more money, and they were made sure to take extra care in being respectful of my home. I definitely plan to use them again in the future and share them with anyone I know who's looking for a great electrician.

Very professional and overall pleasant experience. I had a chandelier and brand new recessed lighting installed, and everything was done very quickly and efficiently. They were very knowledgable, answered all my questions, and did a fantastic job at installing everything. Would highly recommend them for all your electrical work, and will be reaching out to them again in the future for other projects I need done.

This is the first time that I have used your business. Your representative, Barry came to my home to repair my timer switch for the outside light. He explained everything to me so that I could understand what he would need to do. He was friendly, professional and got everything done in under an hour! The price was within my budget too! I am so pleased - and Barry should be cloned! Thank you so much, especially, for arranging the schedule the day before Thanksgiving - I really appreciate you!!

Pete, and his assistant are “Five Star” representatives of your company. They fixed every electrical issue that was needed to be done in our new home that we just purchased in Cherry Hill. I will certainly use your company again, if needed.

I had initially contacted them to replace a cutoff for our hot tub, and decided to have a few other items attended to. It was easy for me to arrange for a mutually agreeable appointment, the service personnel arrived on time, and the work was performed in a professional manner that met our expectations. Should the need arise in the future, we will certainly contact Dk Electrical Solutions again!

Jeff was on time, professional and great to talk to. He installed a bathroom exhaust fan/light. Glad i didn't attempt this job on My own, since the old fan had a 3" exhaust tube and the new prodyct i purchased had a 4". So jeff went to Lowes and bought the adapter and then installed it properly. Clean up was done promptly as well. I would highly reccomend DK Electrical Solutions to anybidy needing any type of electrical work or installations.

Jeff was great! I needed help with my mom's house to properly install her new electric dryer and also update many worn outlets. I'm not local and he spent time on the phone with me to walk through everything, explained all the work, helped me prioritize, and got all of the work done same day for a fair price. Overall a great experience!
