24HEEM BLOG – Microwave Fault
Welcome to our instalment of our new blog for 24 Hour Emergency Electrician Melbourne.
We have many stories to tell, relating to Emergency Electrical work as this is the main line of work we are currently doing.
A typical job we just completed was carried out during the middle of the week and late at night.
We received a call and had a customer explain that the power point taking care of the microwave had a burn mark on it and caused all the power to shut off.
