What can McKenzie’s Electrical 2000 Ltd do for you ?
Test your RCDs and check your Smoke Alarms
How to test my RCDs?
Pushing the test button simulates an earth leakage fault and should trip the RCD switch if this happens the RCD is operating correctly. This test is called the “push-button test” which any person can easily do safely.
Step 1: Turn off electronics
Turn off all sensitive electronic devices like computers, Tv’s
Step 2: Test the RCD
When the RCD is in the ON position press the test button simulate an earth leakage fault. Push and release don’t hold the button down.
When the RCD operates, it will cut off power to all the circuits it is connected to. Now turn the RCDs back to the ON position it at should reset. Now the test is done. If the test doesn’t go as described you will probably have a faulty RCD.
Common issues with faulty RCD’s are
- Not resetting after the test
- Not tripping when the test button is pressed
- Tripping slowly it should be fast and instant
- RCD switch feeling floppy after the test.
