What can I do? Answer: First, check the amp limit of your circuit breakers. If you’re using a 12.5-amp machine, and the circuit breakers are 10-amps, your circuits 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.” Using the machine does not pose a safety concern; however, it may be an annoyance. We’ve done our homework and found that most homes contain 15-20 amp circuit breakers. If problems continue with your mop and the amperage of the circuit breakers have the standard 15-20 amp service rating, please contact us at 1-800-237-7691, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., or Sunday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET.
