This started happening last week. My Shark vacuum kept tripping my breaker. My wife smelled smoke coming from the vacuum so we assumed it had reached its end. I bought a new vacuum (same brand), thinking the problem would be fixed, but to no avail. I've plugged it in everywhere in the house and it trips the different breakers. I plugged in other appliances, but they do not trip the breakers. I even plugged in an old Oreck vacuum, and it did not trip the breakers. Any thoughts?
Just moved in to a new house both myself and neighbor. Have same problem not your vacuum it’s lousy breakers from Eaton good for commercial not so for residential had problem with brand new washing machine electricians tried to tell me it was the unit funny i ran an extension cord and it worked breaker flashed 6 times told him change it out bad breaker right out of box not like seimen or square d check anode make sure all the breaker’s are seated and all connections are tight hope this helps
Forgot to mention go to Eaton website and they will tell you what the flashing light is goes from 1 blinck to 6 and you can go back and check any fault
