My Karcher MX720 pressure cleaner keeps tripping the mains power.


Jeff, the specs say it is 230 volt, 16 amp minimum, start up would be more, probably minimum 20 amp.or larger, check your manual. Are you using a small gage/ low capacity extension cord this could blow a breaker or may have an internal short have checked by a Karcher repair center. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I own a stanley pressure washer and it keeps tripping out


The pump will cycle on/off but if it works properly when you pull the trigger and it keeps working then its working correctly.

Simoniz S2000 XE02 internal cct breaker keeps tripping after 30secs tried to get a parts break down but that info is really ****** and nothing on line anywhere. Any idea what causes the cct breaker to...


First be very careful because the unit is protected by a ground fault internal circuit interrupter and may trip if there is a short circuit to ground. Even a very small short circuit will trip the circuit breaker.

Something else: If you are plugging it into an already existing ground fault outlet then that may also cause one of the breakers to trip.

Like I first mentioned, if you don't know what your doing be very careful. Electricity and water are not friends, especially if the circuit breaker is tripping.

Good luck,

Marty

Need more info:
What fuse? the one at the end of the cord on the pressure washer? Or the circuit breaker on your house?

If it is the one on the cord it may have gone bad. To test replace it with normal plug (non-GFI) and plug it into an outdoor or bathroom GFCI (GFI) outlet. If it still trips that outlet then there is a ground fault in the device which may be minor or major.

If it is a home circuit breaker remember that electric pressure washers use a lot of power - typically 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged in it can trip the house circuit breaker.

When I pull the trigger on handle the breaker in the house trips.


if the breaker in the house does not trip with any other appliance connected to it ie another electric motor say a pool pump or electric motor from a circular saw and does not trip

then it sounds like your blaster has a electric phase to earth short circuit
it will be pulling a very large current

i suggest you take it to your local electrical repair shop to check this out

My Nobel dishwasher keeps tripping the circuit breaker. I think it is when the detergent door flips open it shorts the sytem? anybody know what I can do?


Something to try. Get a short HD extension cord and plug the washer in to a outlet just outside of the kitchen and see if a different breaker trips. Turn off and or unplug all small appliances when using washer. Could have a defective breaker. Good luck, best regards.

The gfci on cord keeps tripping


GFCI's trip because theire is current leaking to ground. This often can be be caused simply by electrical components getting wet.

Or, it can be caused by a serious short to ground.

Fist, check to see if the inside circuits are getting wet from an internal leak. If so, fix leak, dry off components with a har dryer, try again.

If GFCI trips, it should be serviced by an experienced appliance repair person.
