comment Carpet cleaner keeps tripping outlet
I meant to say to use a 220v to 110v converter with the outlet. But it seems to be too much of a set up. I assume if these outlets can power a dryer and a washer, they can power a carpet cleaner. I don't know what is a x amp circuit. I have outlets in my condo and I don't know what rating they are for and how to differentiate between differentiate between different circuits and if I have different circuits with different amperage. All I know if I have a bunch of outlets and circuit breaker panel.

It's a 10A cleaner. What is a higher power circuit? Like where a washer or dryer are hooked to? Probably a 220V circuit. There's nothing else connected. I live in a 5 year old condo.

I have standard outlets. How do you know what outlets is rated for what power? I am using a consumer grade carpet cleaner. I don't know how to use a carpet cleaner other than turning it on and using it like a regular carpet cleaner.

I didn't say it was a circuit breaker.

@ratchet Those switches are marked for certain devices (stove, heater..). I can't see how they would affect an outlet
