    same problem here, no loose wires on heater element, however remove the plastic panel at back bottom to reveal the motor and pump.... there is blackening in line with the heating element, so in this case i would think that the heating element is shot and needs to be replaced.

The usual problem with tripping is the heater of the dryer box has become loose and touching an earth.
if you take the lid off you will see the box on top of the drum.
with the electric off you can look for loose/disconnected wires and wiggle the 2 metal tabs that are the ends of the heater, should not move.
you may be better with an engineer visit if it's not an obvious fault.

My ryobie bench grinder keeps tripping the rcd within a second of turning it on?


Assuming your local tech confirms that your bench grinder tests ok. The problem is probably that the grinder draws too much current for the RCD and is therefore detected as an earth leakage. High amperage devices often do that. Your best bet would be to plug it in to a socket which is on a non-rcd circuit. Maybe you have an RCD on the whole house though? I would start with returning the grinder and trying a different brand with a lower amperage/wattage rating. If that doesnt work, I would call an electrician to discuss installing a different RCD or running a separate circuit for your power tools.

I have a new (1 month old) Hotpoint Condenser Dryer (TCD980G). When it is on the drying cycle it runs for about 30 minutes and then trips the RCD circuit. I have cleaned the condenser filter and the water...


There should be no condensation present if it is a condenser dryer, this is the idea of it.
As for tripping the electrice, then it suggests to me that the steam could be the cause of the problem.
As it is a new dryer, then I would strongly advise you ring Hotpoint service, or ring the help line number in your instruction book.
You can contact them at the following address if needed.

Hob on my hotpoint oven trips my RCD


It is either a faulty ring, or the regulator that controls it is faulty.
You really need a meter to test the ring with to be certain which part is faulty.
Hope this helps.

Dryer tripping RCD


Try disconnecting the heater and thermostats.
They are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
If it still trips, then the problem is likely to be more serious.
Hope this helps.

Washer/drier tripping rcd!


Hi.
Sounds like you have a short or an earth fault.
if it trips right away, try it with the motor disconnected, if it still trips then you will probably have to call an engineer..
