My Swiffer® BISSELL® SteamBOOST™ is Tripping my Circuit Breaker. What do I check?

Answer:  1.  Check the amp limit of circuit breakers.

 2.  Make sure the circuit is not overloaded.  If you have a lot of appliances plugged into the breaker you are trying to use for the machine, you may want to consider trying another outlet hooked to another circuit.  If nothing   else is plugged into the circuit, there is a good chance it will not “trip.” Using the machine does not pose a safety concern; however, it may be an annoyance to you.

  3.  According to the BISSELL Manager of Compliance, most homes contain 15-20 amp circuit breakers. If you continue having problems with a machine, and the amperage of your circuit breakers have the standard 15-20 amp service rating, we’d like to hear from you.  Please call 800-611-2583.
