What happens if an appliance fails the tests

If we failed an appliance we will have advised you what to do; if it were to dispose of the appliance then that should be done. If you choose to get it repaired, remember to get us back in to test it before it is put back into use. 

PAT Testing is as much about finding faulty appliances and fixing them as it is about confirming appliances are safe.

If an appliance fails it may be repairable; if we can repair it we will do, but if not we’ll recommend further action. Usually that is one of two options:

  • Get it repaired by a specialist
  • Dispose of it by appropriate means
