Contact between plug and outlet is loose and so there is a leakage of current. Recommend to replace the plug to fit the new outlet.If the breaker still tripping call technician to service your unit.

well,humming that's the motor stuck up,it can't start up,the running winding of motor has built up current because it can't move on,the start winding is not wotking,check starting capacitor ,using multi tester have set to RX100 test rod on both terminal pointer will deflect to "o"reading,then reverse the test rod on terminal of capacitor this will deflect also to "0" but gradually go back to original position at high value.if this happen your capacitor is good.but if not deflect.defective capacitor,replace defective capacitor,
if capacitor is good,check relay coil,or check motor starting winding resistance,if you get high resistance more than 100 ohms
you motor is defective replace motor,
have a nice day,don't forget to rate me,thank's a lot

The reset button is a voltage leak detector it is possible the unit has a short in it or the cord has a short

Hi Karen, and yes more then likely a lot of the controls were cooked. It doesn't take long with that high of voltage to take out motors, burn the insulation off of wiring and so on. Depending on how long it was plugged in and how long that much voltage had run through it, try plugging it into a 120 volt receptacle and see what happens. I would do this before any thing else. I have seen this happen on other units and just melt the 120 volt power cord. So, plug it in to see what happens, and if it seems to run good, you may have turned it off in time. If nothing happens, and this unit cost you a lot off $$$, it may not hurt to take it in to a appliance repair shop and get an estimate. If you smelled a lot of electrical burning, I would look at where the power cord comes and ties in, that may be as far as it got and check it if you have someone that is able to do this. But, my guess it is probably dead. I am sorry this happened to you. Please don't forget to rate my post as I know you will be kind.
