Switchboard repairs

In a favourable environment and regular maintenance, the estimated life of a standard miniature/moulded circuit breaker (MCB) is around 30 years. In reality, their life can be as much shorter than that.

Current wiring standards mean Residual Current Circuit Breaker with Overload Protection (RCBO) is the new standard in circuit breakers. They are so effective in preventing electrocution that they are now mandated by law with wiring standard AS/NZS 3000:2018.

Though legal in limited repair situations, beware of any electrician that uses MCBs.  They are either they are cutting corners, aren’t licenced in NSW or aren’t up to date.

Switchboard upgrades

Your switchboard is the electrical ‘control panel’ of your homes electrical system. Older switchboards were never designed to take the high wattage loads the modern household places on them.

To get more power for air conditioners, cooktops, hot water systems and extensions people added additional wiring, enclosures and circuit breakers. Most people’s switchboard is a risky mashup of analogue meters, smart meters, ceramic fuses, enclosures and unlabelled MCBs.

Upgrading your switchboard is the number one thing you can keep your family safe from electrocution and electrical house fires.

Ceramic fuses and fuse boxes

Ceramic fuses have a distinctive look, the fuse block is about the size of a lighter, white, glossy and holds a single wire or ‘fuse’ which burns apart if overloaded.

Each fuse requires a wire that matches its rating, it isn’t unusual to see fuse blocks with thicker wire, assumedly a past occupant didn’t want to visit the store and used what they had.

Fuses like this are the perfect storm for electrical house fires when loaded.
From an electricians point of view, ceramic fuses still work as designed but offer no protection from electrocution.

It has been decades since this technology met Australian Standards, if you still have ceramic fuses, it is time to upgrade.

Why won’t my circuit breaker reset?

There are a few reasons that a circuit breaker won’t reset, including:

  • It wasn’t reset correctly: Some brands of circuit breakers have three positions, on, off and tripped. Due to the short distance, it is pretty easy to get the wrong position, flick the breaker off again and make sure it is all the way on.
  • The circuit is still overloaded: If the breaker was overload and all the appliances are still plugged it will trip instantly. Unplug the appliances and try again.
  • You have a short circuit: If all your appliances have been unplugged, you probably have bare wires touching somewhere causing a short circuit. You want to get an electrician to look at this ASAP.
  • Your circuit breaker has failed: Circuit breakers are spring-loaded safety item for your house and family. With age, they start tripping during normal use and need to be replaced.

Customer Reviews

The team at Omega were great, from the moment I called them they were able to help straight away and start the job the next day. Reece and Adam who did the job were very friendly always early and completed what they needed to do for the day always on time and have done a great job it all looks superb. They both worked extremely hard even on the hot days. Definitely recommend using Omega again for any plumbing and drainage needs.read more

First Adam arrived promptly and strongly encouraged me to watch him jet the sewer line so I could understand any problems as to why sewerage overflowed outside and my house flooded with bath water. Understandably I was extremely anxious and upset with houseful of guests and toilets not working properly and the prospect of major work to pipes. Reassured by projects manager who had Stephen and Nick arrived within couple of hours. They were joined by Todd who all had the main area of concrete cut up quickly and left tidy for main pipe replacement the next day. Very courteous and the men mopped my garage floor clean before they left. Yes I recommend this crew.read more

Jordan C & Adam did the installation of our new hot water system. Was a bit tricky but they didn’t leave until the job was complete even though what was going in was a bigger size than what they were replacing, they needed carpentry skills too. Both men were very professional, friendly, hard working & turned up on time. Thank you Jordan & Adam!read more

They were pretty quick. Sent the assessor within two hours. Matt gave me quite few options to choose from. They are expensive. But the work was very good. Steve and Roma, two young guys, came sharp on the scheduled time and did a flawless job. They were dey friendly and courteous. Even if I spent a bomb, at the end I was happy. Thank you.read more

I had several ceiling lights in my apartment replaced by Selim from Omega Services. He did a good job, and was very polite and helpful. Other people I dealt with from the company seemed efficient and helpful too, and they were able to come out to do the job within a couple of days at a time that suited me.read more

Reid was polite, friendly and knowledgeable. He had a look at the job and estimated how long it would take to clear the down pipes. The work was carried out neatly and efficiently and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this firm to friends.

From the moment I called Omega Home Services, Ryan was the first to come out, our water heater was leaking. Of course it has to be replaced. Being the long weekend, Ryan left his number in case water heater broke down further, and Ryan said Omega would put in a temporary water heater, well the heater broke down that same afternoon a temporary heater was installed.The service was prompt and efficient. By Tuesday new water heater installed. They left the place clean , took away the old water heater. I highly recommend Omega Home Services.read more

I tried Omega to fix a long standing intermittent issue with my air conditioning that another service company had on two consecutive years failed to identify, said there was nothing wrong and charged me a callout fee.Although Omega didn't fix it completely on the first attempt, they came back without question, and at no charge, and found the issue on the second attempt. Their customer service is friendly and the follow-up calls are great. I won't be using anyone else in the future.read more

We used Omega to inspect our drain due to blockage in the toilet. After the inspection, it was determined that our whole sewer line needed replacing. They started working next day. The guys from Omega (especially Romer, Steve and Josh) were always professional, polite, early to arrive and good at communicating what was happening during the process. We would recommend their services to anyone needing work done on their home.read more

Selim came to my home changed all the lights in my new home to perfection. I was concerned from previous experiences that it would not have been done to my satisfaction. Selim was amazing. I’m in construction and can say his work is flawless. He also checked other electrical concerns I had with the switch board. He fixed that also for me making me feel at ease.Will definitely use Omega again with Selim. Thank you.read more

Nelson from Omega Services came and installed a brand new hot water system for us last week. The water heater delivered the first time was found to be faulty. Nelson and his colleague immediately got in touch with the company and quickly arranged for its replacement. The new one was delivered right next day. In the meantime, to make sure that we did not have to suffer a 24-hour waiting period without hot water running in the house during winter time, Nelson and his colleague installed us a temporary hot-water system. Then, Nelson returned the next day and installed the new system for us straight away, and also gave us some good tips on how to use and maintain the new system. Overall, we are very happy about the services provided by Nelson and by Omega Services. Highly recommended!read more
