    Hi Guys, Gals & others, In our Rapido we have three trip switches, 1 does the fridge/freezer and that works ok on electrics/gas, 2 does the trume combi boiler, 3 does the sockets.
    Now the problem, when 2 OR 3 are switched on even with the battery charger switched off, the earth leakage trip will blow either straight away or within about an hour.
    Have any of you ever heard of this problem or got any ideas ?

    Not worth messing about with, play safe and get it tested by a qualified Electrician

    Yes. I seem to temember a thread on here sometime agao about a similar problem they had and it turned out to be loose wires inside the trip unit that had burned and were causing the trip to go after a while. Disconnect eveyrthing and just pull the covers to check.
