One of the most rewarding aspects of working as an electrician is  determining what is actually going on, and making a sound decision on the correct course of action. Successfully troubleshooting a complex piece of equipment gives a technician a tremendous sense of satisfaction. Having an effective troubleshooting plan and following it can help both technician and homeowner obtain this feeling of satisfaction.

This article presents an overview of a simple, but effective, method of investigating an electrical problem. Use this seven-step process when presented with a complex problem:

  • Gather the information
  •  Understand the malfunction
  •  Identify which parameters need to be evaluated
  •  Identify the source of the problem
  •  Correct/repair the component
  •  Verify the repair 
  •  Perform root cause analysis
