This document attempts to provide an entry to the world of consumer electronics troubleshooting and repair. Typically the utility company (Oncor, TXU, Coserv) is responsible for repair of electric service up to the point of connection in the meter base. Shock occurs when the human body becomes part of an electrical circuit, so be cognizant of body positioning when working in electrical environments. The energy meter is located approximately near and above the main door, just outside the house.

Fuse and circuit breakers are the major components inside the home electrical panel or distribution board (DB). The ohmmeters most common usage would be for measuring resistance of components and also the integrity of electrical circuit's. Instruction in electrical systems, wiring and meter installation typically addresses the procedures used on both single and polyphase meters.

All these check here are very important to ensure that ordinary persons understand enough about the basics so they can use the electricity at home or at the office safely, and recognize the dangers and the electrical hazards when these dangers present themselves.
