Sounds like you have a heating element touching the case or a bare wire in the electrics path shorted to ground and tripping the breaker,re-check all wires and if it has a replaceable cord as in it plugs and unplugs from the unit check this for a short

My tefal keeps tripping elcb in fuse board what could be wrong


Next time it happens and it trips.. use a dry towel to unplug kettle, just in case.

Is the base wet? Check the kettle for cracks. Check the cable. Is it damaged? Try replacing the fuse in the plug. Is the steam that the kettle produces affecting lighting or other electrical items around it? Try moving the kettle to a different location.

Cannot take dualit plug apart


Remove the small silver Dualit sticker from the pin side of the plug. There is a small screw inside that will undo the plug :)

Kettle has just suddenly tripped the electricity. Tried changing fuse and different plug socket but still tripped. O oh!


This is because there is a current leakage between the live and earth terminals of the kettle.
You see, if current leaks from live path to earth, you will get an electric shock when you touch the outer metal surface (because the metal part is earthed). To protect you, the trip switch will cut off the electricity supply.
You can try drying the kettle in hot sun. This is because the current leakage is most probably due to water leaking in to the circuitry.
You can try replacing the heating element, if it is available in the store. Otherwise do not use it. That's better for your safety.

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.

I have a Kenmore 300 series elect. dryer that keeps tripping 30 amp breaker. Have already changed breaker wiring going from box to dryer and installed new motor.


Check your load/AMP capacity.
If you have other electrical appliances on ie. Iron, Heater, toaster, Kettle these will contribute to the over loading problem.
Old homes sometimes only have 40-80 amp capacity
