Garden Electric Lights Tripping When Appliances Turned on

Postby Paul F » Tue Mar 23, 2021 8:06 pm

I have garden Lights in the front and rear gardens.
They are on a timer.
When I turn on a heating appliance ie Oven, Micro wave, washing machine, tumble dryer etc the entire electrics trip.

If I have the garden lights off permanently I have no problems.

Thoughts please

What is it that actually trips?
What voltage are your garden light lamps?
My thoughts are you have a garden light that has water ingress.
