Rcd tripping problems

How can a neautral fault on my economy 7 circuits be tripping the RCCB on the main consumer unit when the feed from the econ 7 immersion heater is eith from that or the day time consumer unit isolated by a double ple switch which throws both neautral and earth from one circuit or the other? I have disconected the economy 7 immersion heater neutral and the day time consumer unit RCCb no longer trips. How can it be connected to the day time consumer unit at any time when the double pole change over switch makes either one or the other?

My VAX dual power when i turn it on..the circuit breaker tripping off...pls help me


A breaker trips if there is a fault. There are two sorts of breaker - the RCD or the Micro Circuit Breaker.

When the RCD trips it suggests a fault that is allowing current to leak to ground.

When an MCB trips it indicates the appliance is trying to consume too much current.

Either way the only way to find the fault is by dismantling the appliance and checking the circuitry with a multimeter.

I use my soup maker at least twice a week today it just kept tripping the electric. My husband. Hanged the fuse but still tripping and won’t work.


If the main RCD tripped the appliance has a fault causing the current to leak to ground. If the MCB tripped the appliance is consuming too much current or has a short circuit.

Only dismantling for inspection and testing will reveal the fault.

As soon as i plug it in the circuit breaker trips.


You have a short. It is either short to ground or short circuiting. Check the cord very carefully for breaks. Make sure the ground plug is in tacked. Also try a different outlet to make sure the problem is the tool.

Appears the main box RCD is just as fast as the secondary RCD and it sensed the same fault that triggered the outside unit and it didn't wait around to see if that outside unit did the job.

My kettle keeps blowing the circuit


If the fuse in the mains plug or MCB at the consumer unit / fuse box keeps tripping then there probably is a fault in the kettle element or switch. If the RCD is tripping (the safety device with the test button on it) then there is an electrical leak either due to a crack in the element or water has got into the wiring, switch or power cord of the kettle.
Allow the kettle to dry out in a warm place for a day. Also check it at another power outlet to eliminate any problem with the outlet you are using.

Hot point washing machine WMA 32


It's unusual for a household RCD to go out on excess current from an appliance - the fuse in the plug top and circuit fuse/MCB in the consumer unit should provide closer protection. This leaves you with an earth fault. Earth faults aren't usually related to motor load. Watch carefully what phase of the cycle the trip happens. Does it correlate with the start of water heating? A very frequent cause of low current earth faults is water ingress into the heating element. If you can trip the RCD reliably on every cycle, running the same cycle with the element disconnected would confirm whether or not this is the cause. A.
