Why is my circuit tripping?

It can be so frustrating if you have a circuit that keeps tripping. Here is our suggestion on what to do if you have a circuit that keeps tripping

Firstly, see if it was a one off. Try flipping the safety switch back on at the switchboard and see if the same issue happens again.

If your circuit breaker keeps tripping, it’s usually a sign of something wrong with the circuit. Here are the top reasons for your circuit to be tripping;
– There could be a short circuit in one of the appliances attached to the circuit. We recommend you work through our troubleshooting guide located below. Basically, you need to find the culprit appliance by a process of elimination. So removing one appliance at a time to see which appliance is causing the circuit to trip.

– or somewhere in the actual wiring. Alternatively, here could be a ground fault causing the breaker to keep tripping. If you have gone through the trouble shooting process above with no success, you will need an electrician to fix the issues.
– There could be a circuit overload. If you have too much pressure on the circuit it will switch off due to the power overload. In this instance, you will need to upgrade your switchboard in order to accommodate the extra usage requirements.
