Earth leakage trips when i switch on jacuzzi

There is a ground fault need to isolate it with an ohm meter.

I have a 7.5kva generator, 230Volts, single phase. The applied load is about 4kw of which 2kw is inductive load. The earth leakage trip frequently when the inductive load kicks in. It sounds as if the...

Have the inductive load circuits checked for unbalanced circuitry (ie short circuits). The earth leakage unit trips when the power in on the active is not equal to the power out on the neutral but is being drained off from a short . It may be necessary for you to connect the earth terminal on the front of the gen set to an earth prod in the ground to overcome this problem. Talk to an electrician for best advice

All the neutral and ground (or "earth") wires in a building are tied (or "connected") together at the incoming service main breaker panel - and that is the only place they should ever be tied together - because it is "upstream" of all the fuses and/or circuit breakers which are there to protect the hot (or "live") wires for the various circuits installed in the building.

In the absence of an earth wire (= ground wire in US/Canadian English), if the appliance suffered some damage that caused a short circuit between the high voltage "hot" lead and the case of the appliance, the damage would make the case live and it would cause an electrical shock to anyone who touched it.

If the case is earthed by using a ground wire (= earth wire in British English), if that same damage occurred the hot lead would immediately be shorted to ground and in theory cause the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to open, thus eliminating the danger of a live case.The ground or "earth" wire is a circuit's safety protective wire that normally carries no current.

It is there to force a fuse to blow or a circuit breaker or GFCI to trip if a fault condition occurs in any appliances, their flexible cords or plugs that are connected into the circuit.

By carrying away the excess current in a fault condition - which should cause the protecting fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip - the "ground" or "earth" wire protects the building and its occupants because the power should be cut off before anyone gets electrocuted or any overloaded circuit wiring or appliances catch on fire.

The neutral is the normal "return" wire: in systems where the load is supplied from only one hot (or "live") wire, the neutral completes the circuit and carries current back from the load to the power station.

All the neutral and ground (or "earth") wires in a building are tied or linked together at the incoming service main breaker panel. This is the only place they should ever be tied together because it is "upstream" of all the fuses and/or circuit breakers protecting the hot (or "live") wires for the various circuits installed in the building.

Warning: we must never assume that a neutral is safe to touch: it has to be checked with a voltmeter or a voltage indicator to be sure it is not "live". This is because a neutral wire is designed to carry current under normal circumstances.

So, if a neutral wire going back to the incoming main breaker panel has not been properly connected - or suffers a deliberate disconnection or some accidental damage which causes it to break - then it and any neutral wires connected to it further downstream will go live up to the break because of being connected to the downstream loads which still have hot feeds coming into them!

That is why we should never use a neutral as a substitute for a proper, separate, ground or "earth" wire.

Hello, I'm chasing a fault on my westinghouse RJ442K-R*6, fridge. It's tripping the earth leakage. The compressor meggers fine, but the brown wire going up to the thermostat direction is down to earth. It...

Why not remove the ground fault circuit interruptor (GFCI)? Condensed moisture in the fridge evaporator area, along with defrost circuit and other electrical may be the cause of the ground fault.

I assume you are refering to the earth leakage circuit breaker. This trips when a earth leak fault has occured. The normal cause for this could be
A) Water leaking via a pipe at the bottom comming in contact with one of the electric motors at the base of the washer.
B) A heating element has gone faulty with a electrical leak to earth.
You need to test this with a multimeter on the OHMS scale and rectify any short to earth that the meter would indicate.

Why would the brake lights stay stuck on in a 1992 toyota when the headlights or just the parking lights are turned on but work properly when no lights are turned on?

The most likely causes are either a short or a bad earth/ground in one of the rear light clusters.
Remove the bulbs and check to make sure the bulb holder and contacts are clean and not shorting out with verdigree, also check the earth/ground to chassis connections on the back light clusters.
A bad earth connection in a lighting circuit on a car can cause all sorts of weird and wonderful symptoms, the bulb will look everywhere for an earth just to make itself work.
How many times have you been following a car, it has indicated to turn and then when the brake lights come on the back has lit up like a christmas tree?, that is a sure indication of an earth/ground fault.

Keeps tripping the main breaker on the electrics

Sorry if this is stating the obvious, but this is a sign of an electrical fault. Specifically, what trips the main breaker is leakage to earth (ground). You need a qualified electrician.

Periodic tripping of earth leakage switch.

your not supposed to run an appliance on a ground fault circuit because most of the components ground to the body og unit do you have it on a gcfi well here in america anyway
