Faulty / Tripping Circuits

A Faulty/tripping circuit breaker or RCD can be a clear indication of a damaged cable, a faulty appliance or faulty accessories


If you are experiencing faults with your RCD or circuit breakers tripping, there is likely to be a fault on your wiring, a fault with an appliance or a faulty accessory. A tripping RCD or circuit breaker is 90% of the time detecting a short circuit, overload or an earth fault on one or more circuits. 10% of the time it is the RCD or circuit breaker at fault. Over the years appliances can produce common faults such as earth leakages or short circuits within the appliance.
Tripping circuits can be an inconvenience due to a power loss but there are more serious dangers such as the risk of fire or an injury. If you are experiencing these faults we can arrange for one of our engineers to carry out an electrical fault finding service.
