Some signs that your cords and plugs need to be repaired include products not working, no power, or frayed and split cords.

Home electrical cord plugs that receive a lot of wear and may become splayed or broken. When this happens, replacing the cord is usually the best option, but sometimes you may opt to fix it yourself. You then have two possible options: purchase a replacement plug that can be installed in place of the damaged one, or use a plug from another cord. The process should be approached with care, since frayed or improperly repaired cords can cause fires or electrical shock.

This is when a professional, licensed, insured  Los Angeles electrician is needed to determine the source of the problem.

This provides you with the confidence that if anything were to go wrong, you would not be held liable.
