RCCB is also known as Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB). This is used to detach/separate the load from main supply when the circuit has residual current.
By using RCCB you can ensure protection against direct and indirect contact, electric fire and protection electric shocks.
Tripping circuit breaker
When other high power consuming items are used before you plug in microwave or hairdryers there is a chance to get it tripped. Tripping is actually a sign that your home is protected. Just check what causes tripping and try using a low setting and also usage can be limited to a single circuit too.
Over circuited panel
it is a code violation to place tandem breakers in one slot rather than too many single-pole breakers. The difference between double-pole breakers and tandem breakers are that the latter one doesn’t take up two slots in a single circuit. The danger level will be minimal. This problem can be resolved by adding a sub-panel with extra slots or replacing the existing panel with a bigger model.
