Breaker Keeps Popping

No matter what electrical outlet I plug my MK tile saw into (I've used different breakers) every time I turn the saw on, it pops my breaker. I tried it at my sister's house as well with the same result. Help?

There is something wrong inside the saw.

if you are trying different amperage breakers ( trying a 15 AMP breaker and then trying a 20 AMP breaker) or if you are trying all 15 amp breakers try a 20 AMP

Why did my treadmill stop abruptly while in use?


Your assumption is correct, if you have a household circuit breaker popping, you have a short or over current situation. If you have too many other things plugged into the same circuit you could be overloading that breaker. Depending on how your home is wired, you could have a few (older homes may have quite a few) outlets feed by a single breaker. If you have used the treadmill in that outlet (with the same items plugged into that circuit), the breaker it's self MIGHT be going bad (popping at too low of current).

For safety, inspect the power cord, for any damage, and be replaced if there is any.

If the power core is undamaged, I would try plugging the treadmill in another circuit. Choose an outlet that was not affected when the breaker popped. It you use an extension cord to get to another outlet, be sure it's rated for enough current. If it still pops the same breaker it's the same circuit, and you need to plug it in somewhere else (probably in another room). If a different breaker pops, then the short in in your treadmill. At this point you will need to know something about electricity to further isolate the short.

Pops Circuit breaker when plugged in


Have you tried plugging it in to a different outlet? You may have too many things using that same circuit. Seems worth a try - hope it helps. We found that our fridge was using the same circuit as our washer and microwave and this kept it from popping the breaker after we used another outlet.

My Maytag Portable Air Conditioner Model #M6P09S2B keeps popping my breaker. Can you help me solve this problem?


This can because by a couple of things. An electrical fault within the AV Unit or the electrical circuit the unit is plugged into has other electric appliances on the same circuit. Thereby, overloading that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another outlet that is on a different circuit. If it trips a circuit breaker then, the problem is within the unit. In which case, you will need to have the unit checked and serviced.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Brand new saw trips 20 amp breaker every time I turn on the saw. It starts to turn and after about a second the breaker trips. Have tried different plugs on a different breaker. Still it will not start....


How long of an extension cord are you using? Is it at least a 14 gauge wire? It should be 12 gauge. If it 16 or a long 14 it will cause the problems that you mention.

If this is occuring when its plugged directly into the outlet then it is likely a problem with the saw. Before you take it back tho try another outlet on a a different circuit.

My refrigerator keep popping the electric outlet


What do you mean by "popping"? If you are plugging it into a GFI receptacle it will do that. Use a different receptacle. If it is popping the circuit breaker, you may have an electrical problem in your house.

Tile saw tripping breaker even after letting it cool down for 24hrs .


2 things first what is the motor rated at for AMPS and second the circuit you plug it into what is the rating. The saw will draw more than the namplate rating for startup but it would still pull a lot and if you have something else on that circuit it could be causing the problem assuming there is no major electrical problem with motor
