I had a new circuit board fitted by the landlords on Friday and since then the cooker will not work. When you switch on at the hob it trips out everything. The oven light comes on though? I have called the Landlord and the electricians who are saying my cooker may be at fault?? Its 2 years old and was used for lunch before he did any works!
If there is no issue with the cooker then it sounds like the wrong size MCB as been fitted

If he changed box could be cooler as he has change to rcd or it could be connected on the wrong g side if it's a split box insulation resistance test will tell if circuit ok or pat test cooker to see if its faulty
Fusebox neutral connected to different bank as live ..common issue
Not the cooker that is faulty ,if it trips at the board then it's an 'earth to neutral 'fault meaning something wrong with either neutral or earth circuits.
More then likely when you had a consumer unit upgrade they changed the protection devices from old fuses to RCD protection. With some older hobs they will trip the RCD and this will cause everything that the RCD controls to lose power. I would suggest that a qualified electrician look at the circuit.
Hello ,this comes up alot after a new fuseboard has been fitted as they are very sensitive to picking up a fault , if the oven and grill work fine and its just a certain ring that trips the rcd the ring is definitely faulty.
sounds like they may have made the wrong connections . and did not test .before letting you use it. . call them back to check this .also ask to see the sign off ticket . if it was all signed off as completed and tested .then if you did have a fault be it within the fused board or the appliance it should have come to light.
Yes can be true can be a fault from you cooker or a bad connection behind the cooker .Just need a small check...
