This sounds like lose connections which in turn can produce heat and can be very dangerous. You say an electrician has already advised this seems odd as I would have thought he would have given you advise and or tested the installation. You say new consumer unit so I would assume you have an installation certificate for this with a schedule of test results? The measuring required to obtain these should highlight any problems. There is very little we can advise you to do as an electrician on site should be in a far better position to advise.
