    Hi all, I fitted a new washing machine wall switch, which went ok, 5 mins after completing the job and exactly when I switched off another plug upstairs, the internal alarm went off and the internal power to the alarm panel was cut. The fuse for the burglar alarm has not tripped. Then at night the external alarm had gone off for about 10 mins then stopped. Not sure what will happen next. Where I stand now there's no hard wired power to the alarm. Any ideas plzzzz before I call the alarm guys....

    Is the alarm powered directly from the consumer unit or from a spur off the ring?

    Sounds silly: have you tried switching the socket on upstairs?

    Is the washing machine switch new or a replacement for an existing switch?

    Hi thanks for your reply...

    Not sure on the answer to your first question but on the fuse box there is a separate fuse for the alarm system.....

    I have turned the socket back on upstairs

    The washing machine switch was a replacement for the existing switch..

    Thanks so far....

    Did turning on the socket make any difference? I suspect not

    Are you confident with proximity to main electricity and using a multimeter? I would be looking in the panel for the mains supply as a first point of call.

    If you have just replaced the battery and the mains supply is still off then you could be posting here again soon...
