Customer Question

our oven gave out a red flash today and now it will not heat. I have turned off the power supply to the stove at the switchboard but have not removed the fuse from the fuse box.
will this be sufficient to ensure no electrical fire until I contact an electrician in the morning?

i am 80 yrs old & am not comfortable dealing with electricity. will i still be safe if i don't remove the fuse until i get an electrician to do it for me tomorrow?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 23 days ago.

With the oven off and also off at the fuse, you'll be safe. No power, no danger.
