My domena steam press keeps tripping switch


It has a serious fault, the trip tripping is saving you from a electric shock.
By the way if your ELCB is a oblong brown or black box with a yellow or orange test button its way outdated I recommend you get it changed for a modern RCD (much safer)

Tripping ELCB (RCB)


sounds to me like a short circuit in the heating coil circuit. One would have to ohm out the coils.

Machine keeps tripping out when starting wash cycle - electrics have been checked by electrician - no problems- have managed to get it to spin but not to wash


Hi


The washing machine is obviously drawing too much current for the breaker to handle. This could be due to the washing machine drawing more that it should or because the breaker cannot handle the current the machine needs, coupled with the other machines on the ring main. If the fuse on the plug of the washing machine does not blow, then it could be that there are too many appliances on the ring main. The fuse on the machine may not blow however, if the breaker has a faster blow time than the fuse in the plug. Try plugging the washing machine into another ring main. Or try plugging out all the other appliances on the same ring main and test it out.

If the ELCB (Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker) is tripping only when the washing machine is running then something in the machine is faulty.

One common problem is the heating element. Over time they tend to crack and when the water gets in, the ELCB will trip out. This can be problematic to diagnose as offten the element will only trip after a period of heating. Bottom line, if it is tripping the ELCB then it is dangerous and should be fixed before any further use.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.

It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that you only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,
John C

Maytag model GS2126PADW is tripping the ELCB. It will run for about one hour before tripping. After tripping, it trips the ELCB every time it is turned on. However if left off for an hour or so it can be...


The ELCB ( Electrical Leakage Circuit Breaker) is designed to detect any leakage of electrical current.
When the current leakage occurs, the ELCB then trips the electricity supply within a fraction of a second of the leakage being detected, before the magnitude of the current reaches a lethal level.
Therefore any possibility of serious injuries due to electric shock to persons who are in contact with the electrical appliance at that particular moment is minimized. Have a licensed Electrician check out your outlet and an Appliance Technician check your refrigerator if outlet proves okay.

Not an Impedance this is a lower load trip switch on your power plug line.
All waht can be done is to keep a higher amp ELCB/MCB into this circuit and the fault will be over.
If ELCB then check if the iron is having any leak of the coils as a small leak can trigger a cut off.
Check your grounding
