My domena steam press keeps tripping switch


It has a serious fault, the trip tripping is saving you from a electric shock.
By the way if your ELCB is a oblong brown or black box with a yellow or orange test button its way outdated I recommend you get it changed for a modern RCD (much safer)

When you switch it on it cuts out the main electrical supply


You have a dead short in the unit---don't keep trying that or you may have worse---either it is possible to repair or not---replace unit if in doubt.

Every time I plug the iron into the socket it trips all the power in the house..!!


You probably have water or moisture across the terminals, due either to spillage or leakage and it is tripping the earth leakage. Empty the iron out and dry it out thoroughly by placing it on a warm surface for several hours. If it still trips the power after that the element has possibly shorted to earth and the iron will need replacing.

My e wave microwave appears to be in fine working order until the door is opened. It then trips the breaker and ceases working. Ater the house breaker is reset, the power is restored to the microwave...


You may have a short circuit on the INTERIOR LIGHT BULB circuit in your microwave.

This might explain why the breaker trips every time you open the door.

If so, you would have to unplug and disassemble the unit in order to access the wires and light bulb socket inside the case in order to troubleshoot and repair the problem.

If you are unfamiliar with safe electrical troubleshooting and repair procedures, please be extremely careful or consider hiring an electrician to do the work. There are some hazardous components inside which remain dangerous even after the unit is unplugged.

Good luck.

My Sebo hoover trips the house mains sockets every time I switch it on, yet doesn't trip the kitchen mains. Have replaced filters/bag to reduce load but still no good. What should I be investigating in the...


Hello,
It sounds like your vacuum is fine if it works when plugged in the kitchen outlet. It is tripping the breaker switch in the other room because the circuit is overloaded (too many things plugged in this circuit). Try unplugging some things in that room and try your vacuum again.
If it only trips when using one particular outlet, then the outlet should be replaced. I would recommend having an electrician check your wiring out.

Hope this helps

Check plug to exclude short there, if none its an internal short circuit and machine would need opened to find it so if only used a few time return for under warranty repair.

As soon as I plug Shark steam cleaner (S505UK) in to mains it trips all the power in the house out. I am using a 15amp extension lead. Are there any user servicable parts or repair centers in the UK?


When the main trip cuts out it indicates current leaking to earth within the guilty machine. In machines that combine electricity and water in close proximity (like yours) this problem is almost always caused by some electrical component getting wet.  I'm not familiar with this particular machine, but doubt if there are any user-serviceable parts. If there are any covers you can remove easily, you might try just exposing the innards and make sure they are dry.  If you can get inside, a gentle blow with a hair dryer might help.
As for repair centres, what part of the UK are you in? The place where I work is in south Oxfordshire, and we're always happy to have a look at problems like this... but no guarantee at this time, of course!

Vax 2000 trips electrics


Try the reset drive belt brush button - you'll find it underneath the main power switch on the handle. Also check the brush isn't clogged, by the sole plate by tipping it over and undoing the screws on the bottom place where the beater bar is.
