Check to see if theres other loads on in that room(s). Usually if youre running something, and something else is turned on, the load can be more than the circuit breaker is able to carry. If possible, try using the treadmill in another area where there is little activity or not using so many things at the same time.

Fuse keeps blowing immediately when switching on the treadmill, why does this keep happening?


A fuse is designed to prevent excessive current from flowing into a circuit. If the latter is not protected by the fuse, the excessive current can either cause some serious damage or the excessive current can overheat parts and perhaps result in a fire.

So, you are drawing too much current and that explains the small plume of smoke you experienced. If an electric motor runs slow because of excessive friction or load, it will use too much current, overheat and burn out the windings. Disconnect the motor and attempt to run the unit with the motor disencumbered. If the new fuse does not blow, then the problem is with the drive mechanism. If fuse blows, the problem is with the electronics and not the motor.

My portable ge air contioner 8000 btu keeps blowing fuses, even when it is the only thing plugged into that fuse


The reason you are blowing fuses is 'high amp draw,' which is most always caused by a 'electrical short,' and the most common things to cause such a short are the 'compressor and fan motor(s).

I would say you need a serviceperson to determine exactly what is causing your short.

A treadmill has a high current draw -- it should be on a dedicated 15 amp-circuit -- if sharing a cricuit, it's not unusual, from time to time, for it to trip a breaker or blow a fuse in the main panel.

hi, firstly change the fuse in the plug to a higher voltage, then if you are using an extention wire make sure all the wire is unrolled. i had the same problem with my m5. i was using an extention wire on a roll that was shorting out the trip on the treadmill and cutting the electric off. so just by putting a higher amp in the plug and i am now using a 2m extention alot safer and much better,

Blowing 25 amp fuses


In that case the outlet your using is pushing out too much electricity. Try calling your local electric company for help or a professional electric repair man.

Treadmill trips electrics


Check to see that the treadmill does not draw more amp than stated in the owners manual. If you are, then the problem is in treadmill. If not try another circuit in the house (not just another receptacle).

My dryer keeps causing my fuse box to blow! causing all electrical appliances in the appartment to switch off. I have tried to change the fuse in the plug but it still want work.


the heating element is probably broken and touching against the back part of the drum casing, causing a direct short circuit, causing the breakers to trip. don't try it anymore untill you check the element first.
