Too much load on the circuit

Last updated 01/06/2022 06:01

Too many appliances on at the same time can overload the circuit and cause it to trip

Time:  5 min

Do not connect a washing machine and a tumble dryer to the same fuse circuit. The power required by the two appliances combined would exceed the amperage.

When an RCD circuit breaker trips or a fuse blows when you switch the appliance on or off, this is usually caused by leakage to the ground or a short circuit.

The problem can be caused by the incorrect connection of the appliance. Plug in the appliance somewhere else.

If several appliances are connected to the same fuse circuit, this could cause the fuse to blow or the RCD circuit breaker to trip.

Warning: Never use an extension cable to connect appliances. This can cause a short-circuit or fire hazard.
Important: If you have any problems with your power supply, you need to have it checked by a qualified electrician
