you need part p qualified electrician to test circuit with an insulation resistance tester.he will disconnect circuit at half way point and test each half.then with faulty half he will repeat process again until fault is found.once he has found the leg of the cable where the fault is ,he can replace or repair this section .good luck.Bill the drill.
