    Hi,what else is on the same circuit,and 300 odd what?

    Sometimes,it takes a few cycles or change of duration,to tempt a faulty element.

    Have you seen it trip? If it's repeatable try a toaster in that outlet and see what happens. If it trips too then perhaps N-E cable fault somewhere.

    The O.P. is saying MCB N-E fault doesn't usually trip a MCB unless incorrect info.
