Possible fire risk

Post by Terry Baynham on Mon 26 Mar 2012, 5:28 pm


I may be teaching you all to suck eggs, but we had a close shave on Saturday night when I caught the flex of our single bulb lamp which pulled it towards the roof without me knowing. After a couple of minutes April could smell scorching and the bulb had come into contact with the roof. The roof had scorched and melted slightly which I have now repaired. Just shows how easily a disaster can strike if we are not ever vigilant. Watch those bulbs people. pale

Even an energy saving bulb doesnt run at the heat of a standard bulb.

maybe stop using a normal bulb and become energy efficient too Wink

Can't remember, do you have a fault with fitted electrics or just no electrics at all ?

If you reply you may want to start a new topic so we don't go "Off Topic" here.
