Fuse box keeps tripping
my fuse box tripped i have removed all plugs but ringmain wont stay on,any ideas?
If its the individual circuit fuse or circuit breaker that's operating then its a live to earth fault. If its the RCD that's tripping and nothing is plugged in then its a neutral to earth fault.
Either way without an electronic test instrument the exact cause and point of the fault is like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack.
Best advised to get an electrician in and carry out an insulation resistance test on the circuit etc.

hi kim, sounds like you have either a dead short or earth fault somewhere is it a new rcd fuseboard or older style with rewireable fuses?
