Consumer Unit (Fuse Board)
Your Consumer Unit (fuse board) is located within your apartment and are fitted with British Standard RCD cut out for your safety.
The RCD will shut down if there is an electrical problem with a particular electric circuit. Each circuit is labelled in the consumer unit. The RCD will “Trip” turn off if there is a problem with that circuit, this is a safety feature to protect you from electrocution. Common issues to trip an RCD is if a light bulb blows, there is a problem with the appliances fitted in to your kitchen or electrical equipment like toasters, kettles, irons, TV’s and laptops. Lightly push the RCD to rest. If the RCD will not reset then there is problem with one of the appliances or electrical equipment. By a process of illumination (removal all electrical equipment out of sockets and plug one in at a time to see which one trips the RCD) identify which item is faulty and do not plug this item back in to the electrical system. If the bulb blows please refer to the lighting section.
Please watch the consumer information video on how to use the consumer unit or alternatively you can read the instruction manual before reporting a fault.
