You have either got a gfi receptacle, 15 amp breaker, or using a cord that is too small. That saw draws 15 amps + at start up and runs at 13 amps. or more. So a 15 amp breaker won't run it. Any cord except a big giant one will lose enough amps to stop the saw from running and trip the breaker, A GFI breaker or receptacle will snap off in a heartbeat without enough juice. Or the slightest thing wrong with the cord, no ground, or whatever. gte to a 20 amp breaker, or a bigger cord, and stay away from the gfi. Hope this helps.

Compare the amp rating to the breaker and what is connected to that circuit as well. It maybe from an overloaded circuit. Use a different circuit to find out with the unit

Hi,
Either the motor/saw has a short in the motor or wiring or the breaker is not heavy enough/or bad..... some breakers will not handle the surge of a motor starting up and are very sensitive to that...
I would try a differnet circuit breaker/outlet and also check the start up amps of the motor...it may be pulling high amps on the start...

Can the motor control board cause the house circuit breaker to trip?


It's unlikely. An internal fuse would blow first, I'm assuming. If you've diagnosed this far you sound capable of continuing. Electricity is dangerous!!! I would remove all things from the board, 1 by 1 plug each component into board until the breaker trips. That should pinpoint what is tripping breaker. I would assume a motor.

Life Fitness 4000 repeatedly blows outlet circuit breaker


If there was a fuse in the treadmill it certainly wouldn't cause your main circuit breaker to blow. It sounds like the motor burnt out and shorted- which is causing your house circuit breaker to blow. There is a chance that the ball caused some other damage that is creating the short but my bet is on a burnt out motor. You would need to disassemble the unit and test for short circuits to verify.

Aqua spa pack breaker tripped


A breaker trips if it getting feedback. Feedback can be caused by water or a crossed wire, or an electrical component failure. You said it's pumping water on the ground so the pump is working. Then if you put it back in it trips, so you pump isn't able to push the water to where it has to go and therefore your getting a pressure buildup which falls back on the pump sensors and stops it before you blow up something, it is saving you from disaster of property or personal injury, this is a good thing. You have a clog in your pipes or you have a valve that is closed that shouldn't be, but it's the back pressure that is blowing the breaker I think. I take it it is on an isolated circuit in your house and isn't sharing anything else that could be drawing to much on that circuit. Anything electronically new in your house? I don't think it's electrically related just asking.

Compressor keeps turning on and off, I can hear it and it dims the lights showing an increase in power draw, it will blow the main circuit breaker to the house. Therefore it does not run enough to remove...


If when it's running it dims the lights in the room or entire house, The circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, is not a high enough amperage to carry the dehumidifier and whatever other electrical appliances that are on the same circuit. OR if your house is hold enough (1970's era), it may have aluminum wiring and its overheating .

If it's blowing the Main Circuit Breaker for the entire house and not just the circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, Stop using the dehumidifier immediately!!! Have an certified electrician check your home's circuit breaker panel and wiring. This could be a dangerous situation.

Water light still showing ,also blowing cold air


Assuming that this not a gas dryer. Check the dryer pair of breakers in the house electrical panel--push OFF, then ON. If breakers immediately re-trip, then there is a short to ground within the dryer case--usually the heating element.
