Are you tripping the main? if you are you better get a electrician and see why if it's a smaller breaker then the appliance is pulling too much amperage for the rating of the breaker and thus heats up and trips after so many incidents the breaker eventually weakens and then trips out under normal usage which leads to replacement of said breaker

My H20 x5 steam mop keeps tripping the electric I have changed the fuse but this still keeps happening please advise?


Please stop using the mop before you have the thing catch on fire, or even your house/apartment.
What may have happened is the steam/water may have gotten in to the motor some how and is shorting it out.

Put new transmission in 2005 ranger now when in reverse the sound on radio goes out could it be bad neutral safety switch?


Hi George:
It's always interesting when problems and causes seem to be unrelated. In your case, it is electrical, and the first thing electrical for reverse that I can think of is the back up lights. Check the wiring, or dis-connect the backup light wires from the switch and see what happens.
Hope this helps.

Condensed dryer keeps tripping out my electric when I turn it on


Disconnect from mains. Remove rear panel and water will probably come out. This water is being flung by the fan onto the heater hence tripping the electric.
cause of water being here is a blockage in the condenser stopping flow into water chamber or possibly but unlikely, failure of the pump

My HDDR500E03A 500 GB is only showing 3.98 GB on total memory, what happened to the rest?


The 3.98 GB you are seeing is probably your total RAM memory and not the storage capacity of the hard drive. RAM memory is completely unrelated to the hard drive capacities.

Double click on the MY COMPUTER icon.

You should then see all the disks and drives that are currently connected to your computer. Your USB hard drive should be one of the drives listed there.

Right click on each of them and select PROPERTIES from the menu shown. This will show you the storage capacity of each drive including how much space is used and how much is free (empty).

Good luck.

My caloric over keep tripping my breaker. seem to happen only when it is warm


I suspect it is the oven element causing the problem, as it gets hotter, the insulation resistance is probably breaking down, and causing the trip to operate.

Oven keeps tripping mains


If it is a electric oven, then the chances are it is the oven element that is causing the problem.
What is probably happening is that as the element gets hotter, the insulation resistance is breaking down, and causing the trip to operate
Hope this helps.

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

Whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker


First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!
