    Sunbeam EM5900 tripping RCD switch

    Hi everyone,

    Recently, my Sunbeam EM5900 has been playing up. It works every now and then, but for the most part, it trips the RCD switch in the power box when it's plugged in. Any ideas on what might be wrong or how much it would cost to get fixed? I bought this machine second hand so I wouldn't want to spend much to fix it.

    Hi fievel

    I am an Electrician and the problem with the machine is Voltage going down to the Earth or the Neutral.
    Unplug the machine from the outlet and open it up, Have a look for any noticeable problems like burnt wires or wires off.
    If is is in the control board you might just have to get a new board.
