Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
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://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:HEWjL9TQv5AJ:www.chauvetlighting.com/system/pdfs/f1700.pdf+Chauvet+F-1700+manual&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=us
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....
