This would sound like an overload on the circuit. If it were a direct short the breaker would trip immediately. As an example if you had two units such as a refrigerator and a freezer on the circuit in question, both motors starting at the same time could draw enough current to trip the breaker on start up.

Zanussi dryer tc7114W door shuts blows the fuse

Behind the door locking mechanism is a switch, it sounds like from the force a wire might be touching the inside of the machine chassis. Gain access to the back of this switch and check there are not loose cables or cables touching metal.
You should be able to access it by removing the top of the machine, remove the 3 screws and tap the front of the lid with the but of you hand to knock it back and remove it. With a torch look down the inside from of the machine to idenfiy anything loose. Alternativly remove the back of the machine and see of you can see it that way, as that model does have quite a large back access panel.

Keep your screws safe ;)

How do you replace the knock sensor 1 bank 1 on a GMC Sierra 1999?

knock sensor problems arise from ---wiring --poor connections --knock sensor----insecure KS--KS incorrectly tightened ---wiring short to positive --wiring short to ground ---ECM
as you can see , there are more causes than the KS itself so care should be taken in the installation, tightening , wires and make sure that the area is water proof

Keeps knocking the electric off in the whole house

I would guess it is a short> possible causes:
1) outlet: turn off breaker to outlet pull cover off and look for burnt or loose wires
2) dryer cord: take back metal plate off of dryer look for burnt or loose wires
3) heating element
4) check all internal wiring for burnt or loose connections

The breaker for the dryer should be a 30 amp breaker, and should only trip that breaker. If it is tripping the main on the panel then something else is wrong. You will need to pull off the panel the the breaker box and pull out the dryer breaker and look to see if it burnt, make sure the wires are tight on the breaker, you may want to try a new breaker also. Hope this helps Tim

you have low oil pressure, so adding oil will not cure the light, if the engine is knocking u have damaged the engine bearings and it will need to be torn down and rebuilt.

Tail light fuse keeps blowing. I have traced the wiring back to the tail lights and it all seems fine. I have taken out the turn signal lights and the light switch, put in to the first position for parking...

Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

Fuses no. 7 & 37 on my 318is K-reg Bmw keep MELTING.

you have to figure out where there is a short in your wiring--follow wires, look for broken, missing insulation--if it started in lights, look there first maybe. Also check the connections of plugs. Good luck it may take some searching.

Knock sensor circuit

The code means there is a problem in the knock sensor circuit, that means the the knock sensor connector wire pins may have a problem, the wiring to the sensor may be damaged, or the PCM may have a problem, and of course the sensor itself, I have one question did you tighten the sensor to the proper inch pound setting of torque? if not this can cause a code to set because the sensor does not vibrate as designed to send a signal of a engine knock/ping.
