Question about Dualit Kitchen Appliances - Others
The following might be the cause;
Thermal Resistor;The first potential area of trouble could be that the toaster has a defective thermal resistor. thermal resistors control the heater in the unit. If the thermal resistor is defective, it will not turn off the heating components in the toaster, which will cause the toaster to continually heat up. As it keeps heating, it keeps drawing power, which will trip the breaker.
Remove the toaster connections to it and test its conductivity with an Ohmeter. If there is no reading, the resistor is defective and needs replacement.
Faulty Circuit Breakers;
If the toaster is tripping the circuit breaker, it's possible that the circuit breaker itself is malfunctioning. Circuit breakers trip as a safety precaution to prevent an electrical circuit from overloading or shorting. If an electrical circuit was to overload or short, it could lead to a physical damage even electrical fire. If a circuit breaker is not working, it can repeatedly trip because it is not able to handle normal electrical draw. Circuit breaker replacement is not difficult and household circuit breakers can be found in local hardware stores. However, due to the electrical danger involved, contact an electrician to fix it.
Loose Electrical Connections
There could be a loose connection in the outlet. A loose connection in the outlet could consist of wiring that is not functioning and is unable to properly manage current. The current needed by the toaster is being mishandled by the loosely connected outlet and drawing more power from the electrical system, tripping the circuit breaker. Once again, an outlet can be replaced with hardware store parts but an electrician is best suitable to fix it, due to the dangers of electricity.
