RCD tripping help and advice for the Grantham Lincolnshire area.
Before you call an electrician try this:
Switch off all circuit breakers then try to turn the rcd on, if it stays on slowly turn on each breaker one at a time. You will probably find one of the circuit breakers will cause the RCD to trip again. Try to turn off or unplug each item on that circuit one at a time and try the circuit breaker each time, you may find what is causing it to trip. Leave this item unplugged or off and call mclean electrical to talk through the problem.
If it is not possible to reset the RCD at all it is probably a neutral fault which will need an electrician to find the fault.
