SOURCE: hotpoint washing machine keeps tripping electric

First unplug your washer. Check the ground on the washer and make sure it isn't loose; this would be a good time to inspect the wiring harness for any problems. Next check the outlet (turn off the electric to that breaker first) make sure all the wires are tight and are making good contact; pay special attention to the neutral (white) wire. If that seems fine, and you are comfortable with going into you breaker panel, turn off that breaker and check the hot (the wire on the breaker) to make sure it isn't loose and then check the neutral wire. If either of these wires seem loose tighten them down....a loose wire will move when a load is put on it and cause the breaker to trip. If all seems normal and washer is still tripping the breaker you might want to replace the breaker.....they can go bad. Good luck!

SOURCE: F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

SOURCE: cooker trips mcb when put

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Most likely it is the element. You can prove that the element is bad by disconnecting one wire and reading the terminal to the outside of the element. If you read a short (ZERO Ohms) the element is bad. It is possible for only one terminal to read to the outside case of the element.

You can find replacement elements in the UK on line here:

http://shop.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/Cooker+%252526+Oven+Parts/Whirlpool+Spares.htm

Your replacement oven element (if it is the bad element) will be listed on the label inside the oven door and will look like this: 5320R488 IRCA 240V 2000W RL6 02476

Since you did not metion if it was a cook top or oven element I listed both.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kelly

My treadmill turns on but completely cuts out and trips the house fuse box.. whats wrong


Either your Motor or Motor Control Board(MCB) is faulty.
Try testing your Motor with a Drill Battery:
1. Disconnect the machine's power lead from the power socket, so that there is no power to the machine.
2. Open the Motor Hood.
3. Disconnect the Motor + and - leads from the Motor Control Board.
4. Connect + and - leads(normally Red and Black) to the Drill Battery.
The Motor should turn the Belt.
With the Motor leads disconnected from the MCB, you can connect the machine to the power, Press Start, and if this trips your Fuse Box you know its definitely the MCB.
Only carry out these tests if you are competent.
Lethal Voltages are present.

Bosch wfo2866gb wont work


Possible that the control panel had failed, there is a fuse within the control panel which needs to be checked. Most probably if this fuse has blown there is a short within the board which need to be confirmed for a board failure.
check this link to remove the panel: control panel

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

Candy Eclipse washing machine blows the circuit breaker


It's possible that the current rating of the MCB is too low to run your washing machine PLUS all the devices plugged into the other sockets on the same circuit. If possible, try plugging in the washing machine on a circuit with fewer or no other appliances plugged in. MCB's are much faster tripping than circuit breakers and are rated to trip at the current rating on them. Circuit breakers, may carry a current slightly over the rated current which may be why it never happened before. The permanent solutions (if the overloaded circuit is the problem) would be to install a circuit solely for the washer and dryer or install a MCB with a higher current rating. The latter solution is not practical, however, since an overload on lower power devices may never reach the current rating of the MCB creating a hazardous shock potential.

Treadmill trips electrics


Check to see that the treadmill does not draw more amp than stated in the owners manual. If you are, then the problem is in treadmill. If not try another circuit in the house (not just another receptacle).
