Question about Hitachi EC12 Portable Electric 2hp Air Compressor, Oil Lubricated
Hi, First thing to try is to switch off EVERYTHING and then switch them all back on one at a time. If there is a faulty appliance then as soon as you switch that one on the sockets will 'trip'. You can then have a look at that device to see if you can see a problem. OR If you have the RCD trip with a push to test button or a circuit breaker that protects individual circuits? The RCD will trip on live faults to earth. The circuit breaker on live faults to neutral or earth. RCD?s are sensitive to moisture. They are often set off by washing machines and steam irons as the amount of moisture in the appliance can be enough to cause a live to earth fault. Only way to be sure is unplug everything and plug stuff in till the trip goes out. As we are dealing with sensitive equipment it can take a while to figure out. If it?s down to cold, damp weather try turning the heat up a bit. OR If I could test the circuits with an Insulation Resistance Tester I could probably tell you straight away. You might have to get a sparky in.

Can you check the motor if it has a burnt smell on it? If you do..you can have this re-wired or rewind. Also check the "starting capacitor" (located near the switch box)..have it tested if still working or has a continuity on it. Check also the power cord status if it has a disconnected portion on it.
I hope that the steps information above would help resolve the problem. Please feel free to contact me again if you will require further assistance. tnx
