Identify rccd tripper

Recommended Posts

Redren

Consumer unit rccd trips every morning (most often 4 or 5 times) when only clock radio,C.H.boiler,1 year old fridge and ,10 year old fridge freezer are turned on.

Easy to identify the most likely but is there a way to confirm it? Thanks

if its at a secific time id be looking at something thats turned on around that time. should be easy enough to find with an insulation tester & knowledge of how to use it

Change the time the CH starts up and see if the trip times change.

 

Try unplugging the fridge or the freezer for 1 night.

 

Or pay an electrician a few £ to do some testing and save yourself a lot of time and frustration.

You say every morning  so I presume  its fine for the rest of the day so , as the others have said ,  its tied in to that time slot .    Freezers  switch in & out  24hrs   so I'd  rule that out .   Central heating  on a time clock  may be causing a problem  as Dave says , also  ,  are you cooking at that time with the hob or oven ,  and also the kettle  with everyone making tea , coffee etc.   and  do you switch on  an immersion heater  each morning. ?

Try ruling each one out ,

Turn the Clock Radio and C.H off before you go to bed, if the RCD doesn't trip in the morning, then that would probably rule those two items out, if it's possible to do the same with the two Fridges, you could eliminate the faulty item, or get the appliances tested.
