Warehousing FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

  • I lost power to a plug but no breakers are tripped. What is wrong?
    This means you have a damaged or broken circuit hidden somewhere in your home. Finding and repairing this type of problem can be difficult. But don’t worry, because we are experts at troubleshooting.
  • My breaker will not reset. Does that mean it’s broken?
    Probably not. Breakers are designed to shut-off power when they detect problems on a circuit. The more likely cause is a problem somewhere on your circuit. Do not make multiple attempts to turn “on” a breaker that is tripping. This can be very dangerous and cause further damage to your electrical system. Let us find the problem, and then we can safely restore power to that circuit.
  • What is the humming noise coming from my panel?
    This could be the result of a defective breaker. Replacement should be immediate as this defective breaker could cause serious harm to electrical components.
  • Why is a breaker in my panel hot to touch?
    This overheating is a serious defect and could cause arcing in the breaker. It should be immediately replaced.
  • How can I tell when an electrical outlet is not safe?
    The plug falls out of the outlet without touching it, or the outlet is not secure and will move easily when touching it. When the outlet is warm or hot to the touch, you need to immediately take care of the issue by unplugging the device and calling Kratt Electric, Inc, as this type of problem can result in a fire.
  • Why do my fluorescent lights are flicker on and off?
    Flickering may indicate impending bulb failure, minor power fluctuation, and/or improperly installed bulbs. Cycling on and off is usually a clear indication of ballast and/or bulb failure. It is recommended when replacing ballast to replace bulbs as well.
  • Can I change an existing switch to a dimmer switch?
    Yes. We will match the specific dimmer to the lights in your home. There are different bulbs required for specific dimmers. Such bulbs include incandescent, CFLs and LEDs.
  • Can I hang a ceiling fan where a light is?
    Yes, but first you must make sure the electrical box is properly braced and rated for the weight and torque of the ceiling fan you are installing.
