    i frist tried it on a regular 15 amp house circuit and i thought what you did.

    so i moved it to a dedicated 20 amp circuit in my shop - with nothing else on it - it still tripped

    any other pressure washer things to look for?

    thanks,

    gil

When I pull the trigger on handle the breaker in the house trips.


if the breaker in the house does not trip with any other appliance connected to it ie another electric motor say a pool pump or electric motor from a circular saw and does not trip

then it sounds like your blaster has a electric phase to earth short circuit
it will be pulling a very large current

i suggest you take it to your local electrical repair shop to check this out

Need to reset circuit breaker


Hi,

  • 1 Turn off the light switches and unplug appliances in the room that has lost power.
  • 2 Find your circuit breaker box and open the cover.
  • 3 Locate the tripped breaker. Circuit breakers are small, usually horizontal switches labeled by the areas of the house they serve (for example, "kitchen," "bathroom" and so on). The tripped circuit breaker will be in the "off" position or in a middle position between "on" and "off."
  • 4 Reset the breaker by moving it to the full "off" position and then back to "on." That may clear an overload and return power to the room. If the breaker re-trips, you may have too many lamps and appliances plugged into the circuit; a damaged cord or plug; a short circuit in a receptacle, switch or fixture; or faulty wiring.
  • 5 Identify and correct the malfunction before resetting the breaker.



  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Circuit breaker only half working - reddish flag?


    A red indicator means a circuit overload has tripped the breaker. You mentioned a heater? Does the circuit tripping coincide with the heater running? There may be too much load on that circuit.
    Contact the original electrician to see if he will come check it out ( licensed, reputable electrician should have no problem with this). If he gives you the run around, find another. Was any aluminum wiring found in the home inspection?
