1700 watt fog machine keep tripping GFC and blowing fog machine fuse

Just bought a 1700watt fog machine that keeps blowing the GFC in the garage when I turn the machine on. I tried then plugging it into a kitchen outlet and it blow the fuse in the fog machine. I replaced the fuse and tried the pluging it in to a outlet in the basement. This time it didn't blow but I didn't trying the fog machine in the house. Any ideas what the problem is? In the garage there is a 220 outlet with the weird plug? The manual of the fog machine is at http://64.233.169.104/search?q=cache:HEWjL9TQv5AJ:www.chauvetlighting.com/system/pdfs/f1700.pdf+Chauvet+F-1700+manual&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=us

Thanks

The fog machine needs to be on a dedicated line because of the wattage it does and the amp is rated as a 15 means the circuit breaker on this line needs to be 15 min safe at 20....
the fog machine is like a mircrowave and any major appliance needs dedicated lines not shared with lights or outlets besause it draws a lot of power to start and run and depends how long watts is simular to power the more light bulbs connect to a circuit breaker adds up 4 75w light bulbs adds up to 300 watts and that not includling outlets that may be connected....
not a gfci Unless dedicated at 20a....

Low beam/High beam fuse keeps blowing


Have you changed the bulbs lately......
Turn on with your fan flat out and rear demister on, see if that makes a difference.
Have you got the correct fuses in?

100 watt inverter blowout new fuse and keeps on blowing it out does it still work


Fuses blow because of excess current flow so check for shorted wiring or correct connection in the plug. Are you connected to something that is drawing more than 95 watts as that will overload the unit and blow fuses.

Could be either. But, I suspect that wiring is getting hot enough to trip the breaker. Check all of your wiring to see if there is a hot spot or insulation melted.

1992 acura integra tail light fuse keeps blowing


it sounds like the wiring is all wrong as if its a bad earth on the car after he wired the fog lights maybe you should check and see if there is any wires hanging down underneath the bonnet that have been stripped back or see if there is and loose wires on the back of your lights or fuse board if you dont find any problems there take out the radio in the car i find that most problems to do with bad wiring or electrical problems in cars is to do with bad wiring on a radio i.e not having been installed proberly. hopes this helps

Saeco Classico is tripping the GFC outlet


Your machine has a bad heating element and is ground out to the boiler ground. You will need to have the boiler rebuilt.

 

If you need service you can contact Cerini Coffee Services in New York. More information go to www.Cerinicoffee.com or go to saeco's website to find a local service center.

 

Hope this helps!
