Are you suffering from power outages in your home? While it might be a problem with the power company, it could also be other problems, including faulty appliances or a general power problem with your electrical system. As appliances start to age, even though they might seem to be working, they will start to wear out. These older appliances can cause shorts in the electrical system, which will turn off the power to prevent fires and other problems. Of course, having the power go out because you have an old dryer is not convenient.
Both age and damage to an appliance can cause them to become faulty. Rodents and other pests can cause issues with the appliances, and in most cases, the owners are not aware until something goes wrong. Short circuits are common in those cases, and since they are RCDs required in homes today, there are thankfully fewer electrical fires and electrocutions due to these types of problems. Still, this will trip the breaker, and that will cause the power to go off. If this is happening often, it gets annoying very quickly.
If your home is experiencing this type of problem with intermittent power outages, and you believe that an appliance could be at fault, you should unplug your appliance, just so there are no further problems.
