How to reduce the ingredients for bread packet mix. I made the recipe and it overflowed the machine and tripped my power
I used the recipe on the packet, and for a small loaf, but it was still too large for my machine. It popped the lid of the machine and tripped my trip switch.
The recipe is for 480ml water, 600g bread mix and 1 tsp yeast

Next time it happens and it trips.. use a dry towel to unplug kettle, just in case.
Is the base wet? Check the kettle for cracks. Check the cable. Is it damaged? Try replacing the fuse in the plug. Is the steam that the kettle produces affecting lighting or other electrical items around it? Try moving the kettle to a different location.
Tripping the breaker or fuse as you call it is caused by excessive current draw. These are safety devices that are meant to protect from electrical overloads and fires. More than likely your iron has a failing heating element and should be replaced. If it is a steam iron it is also possible that it has developed an internal water leak causing a short. Continued use is unwise and a potential safety hazard.
check the circuit breaker in the main fuse box in case a breaker has tripped.
check the fuse in the power plug, if it is no good replace it.
Try the iron in another socket /outlet in case the one you are using is faulty.
It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.
Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).
This iron is 1500 watts. On a 120 volt breaker, that's about 12.5 amps. Check to see what else is on this breaker. A 1500 watt space heater or a washing machine combined with this iron will pop a 15 or 20 amp breaker.
It could be your iron drawing too much current but it sounds more likely that you have a weak circuit breaker on that circuit. You might try the iron on a different house circuit to confirm if its actually the iron or the house breaker giving you problems.
