    Hi, we have a HiB bathroom cabinet with light, demisting, usb and shaver charger points. All of these have stopped working bar the shaver charging point. Its just over a year old. Any pointers as to what may have failed, seems odd that the shaver point still has power but nothing else has. Thank you!

    I'm guessing theres a transformer down rating the voltage for the light, demister and usb point to bring it down to a SELV level

    The shaver socket wouldn't be connected to that transformer as it uses full 240v

    Own a multimeter?

    Thanks, makes sense to my admittedly rudimentary electrical knowledge(!) I have a multimeter, guess next step is to try and locate the transformer/circuit board - or am I realistically looking at a new cabinet anyway? (i.e. will it be replaceable is the question I'm thinking....?)
    Thanks for coming back - really appreciated.

    That depends on the make and the availability of spare parts

    And of course what's actually wrong with it......

    For sure, HiB haven't been forthcoming with a response to my query yet but we'll keep chasing them up. Thanks again.
