Do meters just die?


I just went to read my electric meter but it’s just a line of zeros! We briefly switched off the electric so we could remove a cooker hood, but surely this wouldn’t effect it would it? Do meters just die?


Hi @gina_62,

I presume you are checking the physical meter itself and not any in-home display (IHD) that you have? If you are and you’ve checked against , then it’ll be best to email or call Bulb directly (this is just a community forum) at and they’ll be able to advise directly - ‘best worst case’, they need to loop in a technician to provide instructions, worst worse case is they’ll declare your meter faulty and replace it for you. It’s rare for a meter to go faulty though, but Bulb’s techies will be able to advise appropriately.
