Laughlin Electric Electrical Troubleshooting

Electrical problems are potentially dangerous and always inconvenient. The danger and frustration can become heightened when a property owner doesn't know exactly what the issue is. That's where our experienced electrical troubleshooting services come in.

It's important to understand that troubleshooting is different from repair, although the two processes often do come together. Troubleshooting, in a nutshell, is identifying the problem—and done correctly, it involves a systematic approach by a trained professional.

5 Key Steps in Electrical Troubleshooting

Whether it's troubleshooting an electrical system or a computer system, there is a basic methodology to be followed:

  • Gather Information

    The first step in troubleshooting any electrical problem is to gather as much information as possible. This includes collecting relevant data, and documenting the information so it can be returned to as the process evolves.

  • Understand the Malfunction

    Once the necessary information is in place, the next step is to analyze and understand the malfunction. It is essential to have a comprehensive knowledge of the equipment and its role in the overall system. Our electrical diagnosis service technicians understand how the malfunctioning component interacts with the system as a whole.

  • Identify Measurable Parameters

    Knowing what is within the range of acceptable performance involves identifying the key performance indicators (KPIs)-- measurable parameters associated with the malfunctioning electrical equipment. By measuring these parameters, we can compare the results of any individual troubleshooting to industry standards.

  • Identify the Source of the Problem

    Using the available data and analytical tools, the next step is to isolate the source of the problem. This requires careful analysis of the collected information and using diagnostic tools such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, or thermal imaging cameras to pinpoint the defective component or circuit. By systematically checking each component and circuit, we can narrow down the potential sources of the problem.

  • Perform Root Cause Analysis

    Once the defective component or circuit has been identified, we will perform a root cause analysis to determine what caused the problem in the first place. This involves investigating the underlying factors that led to the malfunction, such as electrical overloads, poor connections, or component failures. By addressing the root cause, our aim is to prevent future occurrences of similar issues and improve the overall reliability of the electrical system.
