Related but mayjnot be relevant.
Last Sunday morning the circuit breaker tripped out and refused to
re-set. By a process of elimination the trouble appeared to be in the
ring serving the kitchend and utility room.
Having un-plugged /switched off every item on this ring, with the
exception of the built-in fridge-freezer which was plugged into a
socket mounted on the wall behind it, inside the cabinet, there was
nothing to do but pull the b****y thing out so it could be switched
off, to see if this was where the problem lay.
Just had it pulled out, it was a tight fit and required the removal of
doors and various trim pieces,when swmbo appeared to ask if the
problem could be anything to do with the vacuum cleaner, which had
been cutting out while she was using it, but was still plugged in
Unplugging the machine cured the fault.
There must have been a short or summat at the plug end of it's cable
as removal of the plug and trimming back the lead a few inches solved
the problem of it cutting out .
Electrics wouldn't be a strong point with me, I was off sick that
day, so perhaps someone else can understand this errant behaviour.
A few years back we had a severe problem of the breaker going off
regularly. In this case it was down to a bad connection at the mains
end of the board.
