When I put the top down as it clicks in it trips the mains lve tried different plugs in the house with the same result


YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER MAY BE A RCD SET TO TRIP AT
250 M-AMPS VERY SENSITIVE
TO ME IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A ELECTRICAL COMPONENT OR CABLE SHORTING TO EARTH ,COULD BE SOME DAMP GOT IN SOME WHERE AND IS CAUSING A VERY SMALL ELECTRICAL LEAKAGE, HENCE TRIPPING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER. OR IT COULD BE A COMPONENT FAULT
PROBLEM COULD BE THE LID SWITCH ,GOT WET OR FAULTY, AND IT COULD BE COMPONENT AS PUMP OR MOTOR , AFTER YOU USUALLY CLOSE THE LID WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, DOES IT START FILLING WITH WATER/ COULD BE WATER SOLENOID VALVE FAULTY , WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IF YOU CAN REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS AS SOON AS THE LID IS SHUT ,THAT'S WHAT MAYBE THE THING THAT IS SHORTING OUT, OR IF NOTHING HAPPENS WHEN YOU CLOSE LID NORMALLY UNTIL YOU SET UP CONTROLS
THEN THE PROBLEM COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR WIRING TO IT FROM PROGRAMMER HOPE THIS IS SOME HELP. PS LEAVE IT OVER NIGHT TO DRY OUT IT MAY CLEAR IT'S SELF. GOOD LUCK

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker


rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?


not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

Fridge freezer tripping rcd


Ensure it fully dries out before trying it again. Water in the electrics will throw your trip instantly. If it's dry now, and you are having the same problem. check the electrics for a short circuit or earth fault. Usually a compressor earth fault is to blame.

Hi My Nespresso M300 has started tripping the RCD power protector in my house. Any suggestions on how to diagnose the problem ?


Check no water has got into the machine or into the power connector. If the power cord is removable like the one on a kettle with the same connector you could try using this on the machine and see if it works. The chances are there is probably a fault in the heating element allowing current to leak causing the RCD to trip and you may need to have this replaced.

Tripping out RCD


i had this probem and apparently there's a 'float switch' in the bottom of the machine. This switch is a safety cut off and when activated can not just stop the machine but trip the electrics in the house. the reason for it activating is when food clogs up the drainage bit water can not drain and fills up the bottom of the machine. this then activates the 'float switch' as a kind of safety cut off.
the way to sort it is to disconect the machine from the mains and drain and water. empty the clogged up food from the drain bit. then tip the machine back and a load of water will pour out (may need a load of towels for this bit or take the machine out the back and do it)
once this is done, plug it all back in and give it a try - works for my machine, good luck.
