When using a lot of kitchen appliances at the same time the rcd trips , can i change the rcd to one with higher amps to stop this ?


You should only install a higher amp breaker if ALL of the wiring served by that breaker are of sufficient gauge to support the amperage of the breaker. For example the link below shows that a 20 amp circuit should have 12 gauge wiring (which has a conductor wire .08" or 2mm in diameter). http://www.cerrowire.com/ampacity-charts

WANT TO CHANGE OUT MY GAS STOVE WITH AN ELECTRIC RANGE. NEED TO KNOW WHAT 240 WIRE I NEED,ALSO WHAT AMP BREAKER I NEED.


Where are you running it from? Distance from the box can have a lot to do with the size of the wire. The other thing is the amperage of the appliance. 20 Amps is common and you should use 10 guage wire in most cases.

The control panel works on my range but the oven and the stovetop will not heat.. Range is only 2 years old.. Of coarse we didn't buy the extended warranty..


Find the circuit breakers for the unit, it should be a double breaker with at least 40 Amp rating. Push it to the off position HARD (make sure not to pull the breaker out of the panel doing that). Turn it back on. Check voltage in the range power outlet. It should measure 220-250 Volts between the right and left connectors, and 110-125 Volts between the center and each side connectors. If not - problem is in the wiring or breaker. If you get those voltages and the range is still not working - problem is in the range itself. Check for shorted and loose wires.

We recently moved and now the oven and stove temp does not go as high as it is supposed to....we had to put in a 220 line as there was only a gas line ......


You say you put in a 220 volt line, I'm afraid it must be miswired. If you did this yourself, carefully check your work., particularly where you wired into the breaker box. When wiring, Black and Red both go to the double-pole breaker, white to the neutral buss, and green to the ground buss. The wire used should have these colors and be 10ga. or larger. Or consult an electrician

When I plug in my laptop, a vaccuum, or some other electrical item like that, the circuit breaker trips.


have you got anything else plugged into the circuit? e.g kettle, toaster? if so you could be overloading the circuit. also don't know what country you are in but in Australia it is a 16 amp circuit breaker with 2.5mm cable. if your Circuit breaker is less than 16 amp check with an electrician and he could replace it and fix your problem. if it is already 16 amp you are most likely overloading the circuit by drawing to much amperage from the circuit.

Frigidaire range PLES399EC tripped circuit during baking and breaker will not reset


It may have burned up the breaker. Depending on how comfortable you are with electric, you may want to call an electrician, especially since you are dealing with 220.
The best way to tell if the breaker is bad is to disconnect the two load wires from the breaker itself. If it will then stay open, the problem is likely with the range- check for continuity between the load wires going to the range... if you get continuity call your appliance repair man. If the breaker still trips, you need to replace it Sometimes with 220 this happens. Make sure you know what type of panel you have (or bring the old breaker with you) when you go to buy a new one. Also make sure they installed the correct amperage breaker (I think it should be double 40 amp)...
As I said if you aren't comfortable with electric call a pro.

yes it only requires one 220 plug in you might have to change the breaker to match the amp rating or not and you can bake in both at the same ok
