The RCD will shut down if there is an electrical problem with the circuit. Each circuit is labelled in the consumer unit. The RCD will trip if there is a problem with a particular circuit. This is a safety feature which protects you from electrocution.

Common issues which will trip an RCD are things such as: light bulbs blowing and problems with kitchen appliances or electrical equipment i.e. toasters, kettles, irons, TV’s and laptops. To reset the fuse board, please push the RCD. If the RCD will not reset, then there is problem with one of the appliances or electrical equipment.
