What is the difference between a fuse board, a fuse box and a consumer unit?
Fuse boards or boxes are the outdated name (they used to contain fuses) for what is commonly known now as a consumer unit. Modern consumer units will have a Main switch, Residual Current Devices (RCD) and Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB)
What do RCDs and MCBs do?
An RCD's (Residual Current Device) purpose is protecting against electric fires and shocks. The detect leaking current at the lowest of levels and react by cutting off all power quickly before any injury or electrocution occurs. Normally there will be one or two RCDs in a standard household consumer unit
An MCBs (Miniature Circuit Breaker) purpose is protect against damage to the electrical circuits due to too much current. The electricity is cut off as soon as a fault is detected preventing overload on circuits and overheating in the electrical wires. Normally there will be one MCB for each electrical circuit in newer consumer units.
My RCD has tripped - what does this mean?
The RCD trips on your consumer unit when the RCD switch flips to the OFF position automatically. This will usually indicate that there is a fault on the electric circuits. Most commonly a faulty appliance is the reason for this although there are a many other reasons
What do I do next?
If it is a temporary problem you can try to rest the RCD by moving the RCD switch to ON. If this doesn't work and it trips straight away again
Attempt to identify the circuit that has the issue
Identify all the MCBs the RCD is protecting and switch them all to the off position
Then try flipping the RCD switch back to ON
Flips the MCBs back to ON one at a time
You will know which circuit has the problem and will be able to identify the correct circuit to us when the RCD flips based on which MCB trips it
