Question about Lutron 1000-Watt Incandescent Dimmer Switch by Electronics, Inc
The dimmer should have nothing to do with the tripped breaker... Just disconnect the dimmer as a test. The dimmers are normally in series with the hot side of the line and if they short the controlled lights will remain on, if they open, then the lights will not come on at all. If the machine had somehow been plugged into the lights, then that probably blew the dimmer.
The floor cleaner MAY have overloaded the wiring and the breaker MAY not have protected the wiring and there is melted insulation and a short someplace.
If you can't find the smoking gun, get an electrician to evaluate the problem for your own safety.
