Hi.

My RCD tripped yesterday evening. I identified that the problem is on the Ring Main (Everything unplugged). When ring main set to on the RCD is triggered.

Left all other circuits on over night with no problems.

I've got up this morning and just switched the ring main on. No trip. (Nothing plugged in still).

I tried switching the ring main on numerous times yesterday with nothing plugged in and it tripped every time. This morning no tripping with same conditions.

What's my next move? Tempted to try the Hoover in every socket to see if any particular socket is tripping - Is their any better order to do this?

Any suggestions appreciated. Cheers.
