What happens if an appliance fails the tests?

If we fail an appliance we will advise you what to do; either repair it or dispose of it. 

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
