    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    OP here, many thanks to all for the advice so far. Much appreciated. (y) The toaster ‘tray’ has been de-crumbed but nothing significant was found. However, when the toaster was upturned and shaken vigorously out tumbled two potential (charcoaled) culprits,...see pic. The two blagards have been...

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    Not sure;...I’ve always filed final reads on the losing suppliers website on switch-over day (as a matter of course more than anything else), but to be honest I’ve never paid much attention after that point. It’s an academic exercise anyway, because the losing supplier (Eon) will at some point...

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    OP here;...is that genuine,...or are you just buttering me up?

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    Generally (but it depends on the supplier) by keeping your eye on the meter reading submission section on your new suppliers website,...there will be (or should be ??) an annotation against your opening read/s that says ‘Customer’,...once verified it will (should??) change to ‘Industry’. Of...

    You may get it verified in record time (y);...it just depends how busy they are I guess. It’s quite a lax period atm, but next month should see an increase in switching activity.

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    They will also provide a verified reading in the absence of any input from the customer,..but that’s about the top and bottom of it John.:D Ofgem moves in mysterious ways on occasion.

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    Will do; ...just curious but could it be the RCD that is showing the first signs of going a bit flaky?...or is the RCD the least likely culprit?

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    I certainly didn’t mean to infer you were ranting John, ...sorry if it appeared that way. However, you’re now embedded in the switch-over process and unless you choose to terminate said process it’ll take you along for the ride. I’m sure it will all go smoothly for you. If it’s of any comfort...

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    ...it was a small naan bread,...does that help?

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    The losing suppliers aren’t concerned about the final meter readings you submit or passing on, to anybody, what they (or you) consider to be accurate readings based on what you, their customer, has just supplied,...they have a mandated process to take care of that for them. They don’t need to...

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    Many thanks for that;...a lot of potential culprits then.:eek:

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    You’re perhaps over thinking the final meter reading verification procedure John. It’s merely a process, carried out by official OFGEM licensed verifiers for both gas and leccy, designed to ensure a smooth and harmonious customer transition from one supplier to another,...albeit a process that...

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    Son finished work at 2pm today which was handy;...got clearer info now. See photos;.... it was the ‘RCD Controlled Circuits’ that tripped;...the oven/hob were NOT switched on so duff info in post #1...sorry for that. Microwave Oven was on/ kitchen extractor on/fridge on/ freezer on/ CH...

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    Thanks for the reply. Son is at work atm,...I’ll get him to photograph the consumer unit and I’ll post clearer info shortly.

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    I’d imagine that the energy companies who do take D/Ds after switch-over will probably argue that until the final bill is calculated it's unclear how much is owed by either party; ...and of course, the final bill can’t be definitively calculated until the switch-over meter readings are...

    Breaker tripped;...serious issue?

    Last night my son lost power in his home due to a circuit breaker tripping;...he had his oven, hob, CH, and TV running the time. He also had his pop-up toaster in operation;...he thinks (but not certain) it tripped when the toaster popped-up/switched off. Lighting was unaffected. After...

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    I don’t think you’ll have any major issues with E.On;...indeed many (but not all!) of the switch-over ‘issues’ seemingly stem from a lack of understanding of how the system operates rather than legitimate gripes. My son switched from Eon to Avro, and my daughter from EDF to Avro at the end of...

    Electricity Suppliers - advice?

    Differently! 17 days is pretty quick btw;...probably expedited because you’re leccy only. After the official switch-over day you’ll enter an indeterminate period of administrative limbo. Whether EON take a final D/D after your official switch-over date is a bit of a grey area and seems to...
