What type of ELCB is it voltage or current operated. if it is the first type I would change it

Hi.
Yes change it.There is no effective way of testing these plus the NICEIC regard this as a code 1 if doing a Periodic Inspection.Thats the Voltage type not sure about the Current operated type.
Change the push button m.c.b. as well. I have an idea these are the ones where you can't find them on the max impedance tables therefore nothing to work to.
