Popping noise in home, help needed desperately!

Recommended Posts

Happy ending.😄 Problem solved.

After dug into the kitchen floor,  a burnt live wire was found. It should be an older wire but was connected with a socket in kitchen and one in living room as  a extra  wire.

The only job left is put the floor board and cupboard back, then replace the damage tiles.

Safe for Christmas finally.

 

Big thanks to every body.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Glad to hear you have it sorted.

 

Recent changes to Building Regulations make it harder (but not impossible) for cowboy DIYrs to hook up bodges like the one you seem to have discovered. A friend of mine was quite badly shocked a couple of years back when she changed her fireplace surround. Someone had previously removed an electric fire in the hearth and then plastered the disconnected wires into the surround without disconnecting them from the mains. 😳

Thank you! Glad they discovered the cause before something serious happened.
