TRIPPING !

Just an update - Thanks to all that helped!!!!!!!!!!!

All sorted, and all working fine. After a thorough check, it seemed there was a problem (earth leakage) on the double oven; top grill to be exact. I simply un-installed it, took the oven to another property which didn't have RCBO's, wired it up to the cooker point, turned it on and it worked absolutely fine. Operated the entire oven (both ovens and grill) for a few days, then re-installed it.

The RCBO's are no longer tripping so I suspect the grill element to have been dried out. I've ordered a new element for both the oven and the grill but am comfortable using it until the replacements arrive.

My - what a fantastic fault diagnosis technique.

Take a suspect appliance and try it in somebody else's house where they don't have the safety systems designed to operate when a faulty appliance is used.

You really are a cretin, aren't you.

You really are a cretin, aren't you.

1. The "fault diagnosis" wasn't done by me - it was done by one of your lot!
2. The "suspect" was installed, NOT "tried out" in one of MY properties, again, by one of your lot!
3. I was told that earth leakage is not a fault
4. If you are man enough to call me a cretin to my face, I'll gladly meet you and we'll see who is the cretin!

One of "my lot"?

I'd call you that to your face - what difference would it make?

I wonder why this "one of your lot" didn't just bypass the RCBO so as to avoid the hassle of uninstalling and reinstalling (twice) and lugging the appliance to/from a different property?

Intriguing. I didn't realise that.

Regards, John.

Probably not bright enough to think of that - hardly surprising if he's one of cretin knuckle-dragger Daj's associates.

Oh - so as well as being a cretin you're a violent thug as well?

I suppose it should come as no surprise - you've not got the intelligence to deal with conflict by reasoned argument, so all you have left are your fists.

"reasoned arguement" isn't calling people cretins!

SO - STILL WANT TO CALL ME NAMES TO MY FACE? OR JUST MOUTH?

I HAVE BEEN A PROPERTY DEVELOPER FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER HEARD SUCH A LOAD OF CRAP SPOKEN BY SUCH ****S IN ALL THOSE YEARS.

I EARN MORE MONEY IN A DAY THAN ANY OF YOU IN A ****ING WEEK. I EMPLOY 70 PEOPLE INCLUDING SO CALLED TRADESMAN WHICH IS A JOKE.

APART FROM THE OLD SCHOOL MEN I HAVE WORKING FOR ME, ALL THE REST ARE FRESH FROM TRAINING FULL OF QUOTES, REGS AND BULLSHIT. THEY WANT TOP DOLLAR BUT DON'T WANT TO GET THEIR HANDS DIRTY.

BAN ALL SHEDS WOULD BE EATEN ALIVE IF HE WORKED FOR ME - BY ME PERSONALLY; WHAT A ******! GET A ****ING LIFE MATE AND STOP TOSSING YOURSELF OFF TO PART P.

LIFE IS FOR LIVING - NOT EVERYTHING IS DONE BY THE BOOK TO THE ****ING LETTER .

ANYWAY - NUFF SAID - THIS IS NOT A FORUM TO HELP ANYONE (ESPECIALLY TO SAVE PAYING YOU ASSHOLES £££££££££££ FOR STANDING AROUND SCRATHING YOUR ****ING HEADS) - IT'S A ****ING JOKE. IT'S FOR SPARKS TO SHARE NOTES AND GET EXCITED OVER NEW TESTING EQUIPTMENT - WELL ENJOY!

Daj, here you go again. You are your own worst enemy.

Moving a suspect faulty cooker to another property in an attempt to diagnose a fault (especially and earth fault) is a spectacularly silly thing to do. Though I have to say it could be material for a comedy sketch.

All you had to do (which still would have been wrong and unsafe) was to bypass your RCD device with two bits of wire.

What you actually should have done was either perform an insulation test on the oven or (and this is preferred) call the supplier to fix the oven!!!

This is not rocket science but thanks for the comedy material!!!
