What is wrong with electrics? as a Hobby owner, including a 2003 model, perhaps I can help.

Hi, Beejay, I have posted on hobby forum for same problem but very quiet there.

Firstly the tap in the kitchen stopped working and felt hot also the electric box in the wardrobe was hot and the 7. 5 fuse had melted, Hubby managed to get fuse out tried a new 7. 5 and it tripped, so no water no fridge light and no toilet flush. Also dismantled and tested the water pump at home and thats ok. Hope this makes sense to you and can help. Denise

It is probably that the transformer has failed. If you P. M. me with a telephone number I can try and help you to confirm the cause.

Any domestic sparky should be able to help i would imagine?? its 220v the same as in home. they should be familiar with step down transformers etc

 

the tap would not be using 220v across the microswitch, more like 12v max. if the tap feels hot, it probably indicates a short against the metal body of the tap, causing more current from the transformer ( i presume this is what you are calling the electric box?) therefor the transformer works harder to fulfill demand and exceeds the protection offered by the fuse, and gets warm in the process.

 

transformers get warm when working anyway.

Hi, been to the van and good news, followed advice and it was the microswitch in the kitchen tap, it had melted and bare wire was touching the metal part, hubby replaced it and everything works, simples when you have a forum like this. Transformer is warm, not hot now. Nigel, it definitly says on the bottom of the slots for fuses from left to right 10-10-7. 5 mind you its the tiniest writing and I pulled my neck looking at it. Thanks everyone for your help. .....
