What do I check? Answer: First, check all the filters on the machine to make sure they are clean and no debris has built up, which can make the motor overheat and thereby "trip" the breaker. Is there any damage to the power cord? If so, please contact one of our BISSELL Authorized Service Centers to have a Quality Technician inspect your machine. To find one nearby, please click here: http://www.bissell.com/support/product-suport/service-centers/ Is the machine plugged into an extension cord? If so, remove the extension cord and try the machine in another outlet. Check the amp limit of your circuit breakers. If you are using a 12 amp machine, and the circuit breakers are 10 amps and already overloaded, the circuit may keep "tripping" if additional appliances are plugged into the same circuit. If nothing else is plugged into the circuit, there is a good chance it will not "trip." According the the BISSELL Manager of Compliance, most homes contain 15 - 20 amp circuit breakers. If you continue having problems with the machine and the amperage of your circuit breakers have the standard 15 - 20 amp service rating, please take your machine to a BISSELL Authorized Service Center to have a Quality Technician inspect your machine.
