What causes short circuit
When many appliance wires are connected to a single socket or a high voltage appliance is connected to a low power socket, the flow of electricity in the wires increases gradually, which is the main reason for short circuit.

Many times the insulation of the wires gets burnt due to excessive load on the wires, due to which the face wire and neutral wire come in contact with each other, this increases the current in the circuit and causes short circuit.

How to avoid short circuit

  • Unplug the socket from the plug after use of the electric appliance.
  • Keep electric equipment, plugs and electrical cords away from water and fire.
  • Do not connect the wires of more than one electric appliance in one socket.
  • Use 16 ampere power socket and plug for appliances like AC, fridge, washing machine etc.
