outside rcd socket

Postby hex » Fri Dec 07, 2007 2:08 pm

Can anyone help. Have an outside RCD socket fed from internal socket other side of wall. All internal sockets on this ring working properly, however, the outside socket isn't. Have tested and there is a voltage at the out socket but the RCD has tripped and won't reset. Can't see any other problems. Any ideas? Hex
