My Rangemaster Classic 10 Dual Fuel Cooker is causing my Earth

This answer was rated:

My Rangemaster Classic 10 Dual Fuel Cooker is causing my Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB) to trip after I switch on an element (plate warmer, oven or grill). It doesn't happen immediately but typically after 10 minutes. I can reset the ELCB OK but after another 10 minutes it trips again even if the element is turned off. After half an hour I can reset the ELCB without it tripping again. Can you help please?

The range is 3 years old. The ELB was also installed 3 years ago. I have not had problems before of this kind.
Thanks for that. This could be a short in the range but it really sounds like the breaker is failing or has a poor connection on one of its conductors leading to it.I woudl check all the connection from the oven as well, make sure they are tight and clean non corroded. If all is good there, then replace the ELB, as they will fail sometimes;-)In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.
