I have had some re-plastering and re-decorating work done in my kitchen. I had a new light fixture installed which takes 6 GU10 type bulbs. When the light fixture was first installed I placed 6 LED bulbs into it. The bulbs are Aurora branded and consume 7W of power each.

When I switch on the light it trips out the power on the Residual Current Detector (RCD) in my house. We assumed the problem was with the old wiring – perhaps it got damaged when the work was being done. So we ran a new wire to the fixture from a new light switch.

Definitely sounds like faulty bulbs. The LEDs ought to consume less power than the halogens they are replacing (which typically consume 20-50W each in GU 10 size), and since you said you can run the fixture with all six halogens installed with no problem, your problem is not simply that six 7W LEDs were too much for your circuit in combination with all the other loads.

See if you can isolate the problem to one specific bulb out of the six by only installing one bulb at a time. It could be a short in one of the bulbs due to a manufacturing defect.
