Hi guys I'm new hereso any help welcomed. I was spurring of a double socket in my garage today, I turned of the MCB to the sockets and left the MCBfor the lights on, as soon as I started working I got a earth fault on the RCD and can't reset it even after turning the electrics off completely. The side of the unit that I can reset has 3 sockets for the garage, garage lights and the shower. The consumer unit and sockets were fitted in January, the lights and shower are old wiring, any suggestions how to get power back??
Sorry to state the obvious but I would disconnect what ever it is you have added, then call a qualified electrician to find what you have done wrong. An electrician will have an insulation resistance testing meter, to find the cause of the problem, an ordinary multi meter will not be of use.
