Good morning everyone,
I'm new to this forum I am not an electrician just a frustrated tenant in a private rented property lol.
I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on my problem, basically for seemingly no reason my electrics trip out at least 3 times a week and anywhere from 1 to 4 times in any given day! The estate agents sent out an electrician who has tested all the electrics including the trip box/switch itself and couldn't find a problem inside the property but did find that my overhead supply cable which leads into my kitchen is not only ridiculously old having a cotton/Hessian cover that is also severely deteriorated. This is being replaced this Friday by UK network power engineers. So my question is would or could this deteriorated overhead supply cable be the reason for the electrics tripping?
Sorry it's a long winded post lol many thanks in advance.

Lou
