    The 'Test' button only works when power is supplied to the inlet side of the switch.
    Use a multimeter to verify.

    What make is it?

    The ones I come across that usually fail are Proteus or Chint / CDG.

    The item does have to be powered for the test button to work

    If it isn't working then it's a saftey issue and should be addressed.

    It is Wylex. I have left it switched off for now till I can get a spark to swap it out.

    If it's Wylex you need to know about the product recall.

    If it was installed 2009-2010 you need to read this;




    That's one reason I don't use Wylex.
