Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.
Right and are you saying at some point the RCD trips, and when you reset the RCD it wont come back on until you turn the isolation switch again?
Ok this sounds like the main board has developed a fault, where components overheat or you have a short on say the pump the appliance can go into a fault state.
Since these faults dont occur for hours after use (so cant be induced by say starting a heating cycle or circulation cycle) its going to be hard to prove, but the fact it doesnt trip when in use, would suggest to me the intermittent fault is on the PCB.
The first thing to do is inspect the board and check the components (pump, heater and sensors when in use) which I think will all prove to be operating in range, when the fault occurs I would also disconnect the connection for the display\control panel and reconnect it to see if that makes a difference (my assumption is it wont) but once ruled out it can only really be the PCB.
Understood, the warranty will be RTB so just tell them you will send them the control board, or if its under a year old contact Geko directly with the serial number of the board and they probably handle warranty claim on the part direct.
However I cant see anything occurring at night which would cause a trip other than the PCB, since after use it goes into filtration and calls on ozone, circulation pumps and heater etc and if its not tripping for hours into that 'standby' the components are unlikely to be the cause.
Is there anything else I can assist you with?
