Kelvinator auto Sensing Dryer ED55 trips the fuse in the fusebox as soon as the dryer is turned on. All other appliances switched off therefore not overload.


check that it is not a fuse but a circuit breaker ( earth leakage breaker) that protects not only against overload but against faulty machines
if there is moisture, bad insulation , incorrect installation or anything that could cause an electric shock that unit will shut down the power supply
call an electrician to find the fault

Electric trips off when oven reaches temperature


this can be caused with anything that heats up ( irons etc ) as they overload the fuse when heating elements are worn or have a bad earth wire which has weakened over time. is it a second hand cooker ? or old house ? its down to power through the wire causing the fuse to trip

You may have blowen the fuse link on power board. Because of electric compents could cause bad shock. I suggest a tech to repair. If it is a fuse it should not be expencive. I hope this helps.

I have a stoves cooker which was working fine until we upgraded to the seventeeth edition consumer unit and rcds. Now I have a negative earth fault.Rcd trips out, circuit is fine up to the cooker. Any...


The clue will be when the rcd trips out. If everything is switched off on the cooker with the exception of the clock when you power it up and then it trips out, it could be in the wiring to the oven from the control switch and or the wiring in the oven. The only way you are going to find this is to take the oven out of the housing and test the wiring, isolating components until you find the problem.

I have a Smeg SE 336SS-5 Electric oven, I have recently had problems with the fan motor not working and the electrics tripping out when the cooker has been on for a while. I have replaced the fan motor...


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

I have a Hoover washing machine HNL662 front loader and am getting an electric shock from the drum.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Silly question time first ;-0)
Has this only just started or only just noticed- what's changed, please? Have you previously always worn slippers/shoes which would have isolated you from 'earth' but are not now- because of a change of floor covering for instance?

Possible causes;-
1) the socket into which the washer plugs has no earth continuity, or has lost it,
2) the plug has recently been rewired without a good earth
3) the 'earthing' cable inside the washer has come off. I doubt the latter as it would normally be bolted on to the chassis, or sometimes with a spade terminal.
If you have no-one handy and 'electrically' competent to check, call a local electrician to do the initial checking. It's an easy enough task!

Good luck,

John C

My Belling E641 keeps tripping out. Now the trip


You evidently have an earth fault on the cooker i.e one of the heating elements has failed and the trip switch is operating to prevent you getting a shock.

Most likely it is one of the radiant rings that is at fault but it could also be an oven element.

There is no easy way to tell without checking with a multi-meter for earth continuity between each element and the cooker frame, you can do this with the power off and the meter set to resistance or continuity test.

There should be no reading between healthy elements and earth but a faulty element will normally show a reading when the probe touches the cooker frame.

Electric Shock


First of all confirm that you have electric earthing in your home.
Because the earthing gets the extra current into the earth & stops getting shocked...

I would follow these requirements if I were you:

The cooker must be connected to the correct electrical supply as stated on the voltage label on the cooker (This is obvious so far!). It should be connected through a suitable cooker control unit incorporating a double pole switch having a contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles (This means one of those big red switches with "COOKER" written on them). The cooker must NOT be connected to an ordinary domestic power point. The cable size used should be between 6mm squared and 10mm squared twin and earth. Where the installation is protected by a 30 milliamp sensitivity residual current device (RCD Breaker), the combined use of your cooker and other domestic appliances may occasionally cause nuisance tripping. In these instances, the cooker circuit may need to be protected by fitting a 100 milliamp device. This work should be carried out by a qualified electrician.
