Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine
Hello. I can assist you. First I want you to take your appliance to another part of the house and plug it in. Turn it on there and see if it trips the fuse. It is possible that the location where you usually have the appliance plugged in is a circuit that is over utilized already. Here is what I am referring to: Most circuits are either 15 AMP or 20 AMP circuits. This means that they have a maximum of 15 or 20 Amps of power available. That translates to 1500 or 2000 watts. Now let's say that same circuit already has a microwave plugged into it, or a refrigerator, or a lot of lighting. It could be that your appliance merely drives the demand beyond the available power.
That said, the other issue is the the appliance itself. It is possible that the unit does have a bad component which would result in a short circuit which would pop your fuse or your circuit breaker.
And finally, it is always possible that the problem is within the circuit itself. If you have a circuit breaker, they do wear out and have to be replaced.
The final word is that you will have to use this information to check out each of these possibilities until you isolate the issue. Thanks for choosing Fixya! Regards, Joe.
